The cosy winter coat of our dreams has just landed at M&S

The break-out-the-comfy-jumpers, snuggle-up-with-a-mug-of-hot-chocolate kind of weather is here.

And that means its also time break out the extra cosy coats - if you haven't already - or finally take the plunge and pick up a new one for the season.

Now, normally we would be big advocates for spending a decent bit of money on a good winter coat (if you can). After all, it's something you will wear for most of the colder days and months that makes up at least 70 per cent of your visible outfit.

And we reckon we have found the autumn/winter coat of dreams from Marks & Spencers.

The Herringbone Boucle Double Breasted Coat from Per Una is definitely on the pricier side at €160, but we know it would be something we would get loads of wear out of.

It's the perfect throw-on-and-go piece, and has loads of room for layering - which is exactly what you would want for the colder weeks ahead.

Plus, its timeless style means that it would keep us nice and cosy for years to come.

"Wrap up in comfort by throwing on this Per Una herringbone overcoat," the retailer said of the piece.

The double breasted, fully lined design adds an extra layer of warmth and it is made with premium boucle fabric.
