The M&S autumn ‘it’ coat that Holly Willoughby already loves

We say, autumn hasn’t officially begun until you’ve purchased yourself a new coat for the season ahead. And if you haven’t yet done that, you certainly haven’t missed out as M&S just released what very well might become an instant ‘it’ coat of the season.

Before we even tell you anything about the coat in question, all you really need to know is it already has the Holly Willoughby seal of approval. The This Morning presenter rarely puts a stylish foot wrong, so if it’s good enough for Holly…

As for the actual coat, it’s a gorgeous wool-blend checked pea coat number (checks are big this season). Double breasted with statement gold crested buttons on the front and cuffs, the boxy silhouette is not only on trend, it means it’s large enough to fit a chunky jumper underneath, too, just as Holly has done. The wool-blend composition will keep you warm right through winter, making this a solid investment for the season ahead (and many to come after that).

Customers who have already bought the jacket are loving it too: ‘Gorgeous jacket and looks and feels expensive. Size wise I would say true to size. Great with blue , black , grey jeans. I love it!’ said one happy customer.

The pea coat silhouette lends itself perfectly to being paired with skinny and bootcut jeans – add a chunky ankle boot and you’ve got yourself a winning autumnal outfit.

Holly has been posting several outfit posts of herself in her favourite pieces from Marks & Spencer’s autumn collection lately, all shot by her kids at home on an iPhone. Other favourite M&S looks of Holly’s have been this gorgeous bright yellow chunky cardigan and this perfect camel coat and midi dress look.

Other fashion influencers have also been posing in the Marks & Spencer pea coat, including @missionstyleuk, who said: ‘This Pea Coat is simply a classic beauty – warm (I’m another year old remember), fits well and is good for smartening up or, adding a hoodie and legging combo.’
