It's fair to say that many of us have a soft spot for good old M&S. Renowned for its extensive lingerie selection, affordable cashmere and irresistible, pig-themed sweets, the high-street retailer was likely one of the more recognisable retailers on your local high street wherever you grew up. And it's suddenly become a reliable place to stock up on autumn/winter 2018 staples. While the chain has reported slumps in profits and is due to close over 30 stores nationwide, it has gained customers in womenswear, and it's not hard to see why.

Pop into even a tiny store and chances are you might be greeted with a fabulous jumper, or if you’re lucky, the polka-dot jumpsuit that keeps selling out. After being slow to pull the trigger on pair of buckle-strap ankle boots (at £75, why even hesitate?) I’ve discovered they’re now sold out, only fuelling my desire further. And this has happened a handful of times over bits from the new collection in the past fortnight alone.

Some savvy partnerships with influencers have given the brand’s key pieces higher visibility (like Erica Davies’s leopard dress), so if you’re late to the website, you’ll be disappointed. Items do often come back in stock, so it’s wise to check back and follow the PR team on Instagram for launch dates. Sceptics should note that there’s more to discover this season than just one key buy. Keep reading to take a peek inside our M&S carts…
The one, the only…

Adorable in this black colourway or the light pink they also come in…
Can’t help ourselves.
We just found your day-to-night shirt.
Corduroy is the fabric to be seen in this season.
Having seen this dreamy bag in the flesh, it’s hard to believe it’s not leather.
M&S is having a leopard love-in, and we couldn’t be more tempted.
Yes to easy, breezy, loose-fit boho dresses.
It’s tough to decide between tan and black on these great boots…
Slouchy and elegant—great combination.
Cardigans are your best friend when it comes to layering. This one’s cropped and supremely cosy.
Chic with a capital C.
Add a belt and this is a real winner.
No, you don’t need another pair of black ankle boots; you need these beauties.
Say hello to your new statement jumper.
