When it comes to affordable outerwear, Marks and Spencer is the place to go and the retailer's current range is testimony to just that. Not only are M&S's designs stylish and high quality, they're also incredibly reasonably priced.
If you're after a new, cosy coat to see you through until the summer, you may want to add M&S's popular Recycled Thermowarmth Hooded Puffer Jacket to your basket quick, as it has just been restocked and is a very affordable £39.50.
Smart and versatile for your workwear and weekend wardrobe, it boasts over 700 rave reviews and comes in five gorgeous colours: black, brown, navy, blue and green.
Why we love it
Not only do you get all the warmth of a puffer without it looking too oversized, this coat is also surprisingly lightweight, so it's ideal for dog walks or commuting.
Designed with horizontal quilting, a snug funnel neck, detachable hood, fleece-lined interior, hidden popper studs and water repellent finish, it's a considered piece that's perfect for rain showers, snow days, blustery winds and everything in between.
Not to mention, it's made with M&S's Thermowarmth technology which cleverly ensures you stay dry during downpours while keeping you warm when it's chilly. It has been described by customers as true to size and is available in sizes six to 24.
We suggest adding this pick to your shopping basket ASAP to save any disappointment, as there's already a number of sizes sold out.
What the reviews say
With close to 600 happy shoppers having left five-star reviews for the puffer, it’s clear that this coat is a huge hit. One shopper even said it was "perfect for winter".
"Stylish, warm and waterproof coat. I’ve bought three of these in the last couple of years but this year they’ve improved the quality of the hood and it’s [even] detachable. A winner and great value, would highly recommend."
"Light, warm, comfortable, waterproof and decent pockets: everything you need in a jacket! It's not bulky so no issues with a handbag, and the hood comes off, too. Good fit — didn't need to size up to allow for jumpers."
"Delighted with this jacket! Was looking at much more expensive ones but none had all the features I wanted, such as the detachable hood. Also like the boxy shape and the lovely warm pocket lining."
"Excellent value, ideal as an everyday jacket. Has the added benefit of a detachable hood plus an inside pocket."
"Lovely autumn jacket. I have purchased two in different colours. Great [for] everyday wear."
