Out of all the high-street stores, M&S is probably the one whose autumn/winter collection we await most eagerly. Between its penchant for classic winter coats and its talent for creating enviable knitwear, the brand brings an ineffable alchemy of cold-weather staples to our wardrobes year after year. Well, we are happy to report that the 2021 collection has finally dropped, and it might just be our favourite to date.
This edit is chock-a-block with the sort of elevated basics that you actually want to wear when the mercury drops, and I honestly struggled to pick my favourites. But I decided to stick to the pieces that I believe look far and beyond their high-street price tag and are easily mixed and matched. So what does this look like? I'm talking flattering wide-leg jeans, boxy leather jackets, colourful knits, chunky boots and layered knits. So much goodness, so little time.
If you were to push me to pick one item, I would have to go for the textured funnel-neck jumper in lime green. Why? I really think a colour-pop knit will be an invaluable asset in my new-season wardrobe, as it will instantly add an autumn-2021 spin to the neutrals that proliferated last year. I'm thinking a lime-green knit styled with wide-leg jeans, chunky boots and an oversized trench coat. Oh, so chic. If you want to see a round-up of the autumn M&S buys that I would happily add to my basket, just keep on scrolling.
