It's not always easy to nab a decent coat on the high street, but there are always a few gems to be found every autumn/winter. Of course, you can always rely on the national treasure that is Marks & Spencer to come through with some affordable outerwear options each year.
The department store's sell-out pink style from 2013 is a big contender, but we reckon this year's might be its best yet (2020 is all about the small wins). The coat in question is a tailored camel number complete with peaked lapels, a double-breasted front and a buckled waist belt.
We first fell in love when we saw Holly Willoughby modelling this this coat in a lockdown photo shoot – her daughter took pictures of the presenter in their gorgeous London garden. Holly wore hers sans belt, showcasing just how versatile the styling options are.
So here it is...After giving you a sneak peek, I'm delighted to reveal the first of my favourite looks from @marksandspencer 's Autumn collection, expertly shot by my Belle whilst in quarantine ... Such classic coat and perfect with this beautiful dress... hope you like it! 🍁🍂🌾 #marksandspencer #autumn #ad

Camel coats are timeless and suit any age/shape/style, so naturally this piece has been a hit this season, featuring in many a fashion mag. The big sell every time has been its price tag: this baby rings in at £100.
If that hadn't swung you before now, the 30% off outerwear promo currently on at Marks & Spencer will do it for. For a limited time only, Holly Willoughby's coat costs just £69.30.

It may feel a little silly to be shopping atm but this is a sensible purchase, we promise. Swapping your deflated puffer for this elegant number on your daily walks – it'll elevate loungewear, jeans and trainers – then wear it the office when life returns to normal.
If you need any more outfit inspo, check out how Instagram's being styling it this winter:
ad Stepping out today onto my favourite corner of Notting Hill in the coat that has been labelled “the most expensive looking piece on the high street.” It should come as no surprise to you that it’s @marksandspencer , but the price might come as a shocker. It’s under £100 and all the details are now over on stories, along with some specifics on the rest of this ensemble. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Is it wrong that I kept repeating “florals for autumn... groundbreaking,” as I put this outfit together? And you guys know me well enough now to expect a big print clash. I couldn’t help myself. I also will have this waist bag until I die. Still in stock and remains my favourite purchase of 2020. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And with that I’ll leave you to continue on in your merry ways... ;) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #mymarks #nottinghill #autumn🍁 #midsizestyle #autumnstyle #falloutfits #ffgstyle #plussizeoutfit

Walking into Autumn in my camel wrap coat & chunky black boots, two trends I’m loving this season. This coat has been featured on the gorgeous @hollywilloughby earlier in the week over a midi dress & I went for denim & thought this was such a simple look where the boots & coat do all the talking!

Marks & Spencer's flash deal is one of the brand's many promotions in the lead up to Christmas. It's for a limited time only, though, so grab this coat at 30% off while you still can.
