22 Expensive-Looking M&S Items I'm Adding to My Winter Wish List

The beginning of autumn calls for a wardrobe refresh. I'm not talking about anything too drastic; a cashmere knit here, a pair of ankle boots there. Start the season by assessing the gaps in your wardrobe, then strategically go about filling them. Apart from anything, the right few buys hold the power to transform your existing pieces. They'll present new ways to style those items you've grown tired of, and hopefully, you'll fall in love with them all over again.

If you're on the hunt for versatile additions to your wardrobe that look more expensive than they are, Marks and Spencer is a good place to start.

M&S often feels like a "comfortable" shopping destination—and I mean that in the best way possible. When I notice a ladder in my tights or a stain on my T-shirt, I'll always turn to Marks and Spencer to source a lasting replacement. It's always been a reliable place to pick up foundational buys and simple staples. But over the past few years, we've witnessed the brand step up its style game and embrace some of the most exciting trends in fashion—from those The Row-esque boots to its designer-looking handbags.

And this season is no different. Having sifted through Marks and Spencer's latest drop, I can confirm that there are plenty of wish list-worthy pieces to shop now. Keep scrolling to see the 22 jackets, jeans, dresses and accessories that impressed me the most.
