We're calling it: This chic Marks & Spencer waterproof trench will be 2020's sellout coat.

In terms of investment purchases you can make for your wardrobe, a trench coat is an actual no-brainer.

They protect you from the elements, have stood the test of time (just google ‘Audrey Hepburn’ and ‘trench coat’) and are super versatile.

While we’re only a few days into autumn, we can confidently say that this elegant $119 trench coat from Marks & Spencer is one you’ll want to wear as soon as the thermometer starts to drop.

The classic cut features everything you could want in a trench and more. It’s double-breasted, features an uber flattering waist belt, adjustable cuffs and sits just below your knees.

It’s waterproof and sustainable, too. The fabric is made from a blend of recycled materials and responsibly grown cotton and it’s treated with their water-repellent Stormwear™ technology. The fact that it comes in five colours – beige, olive, navy, black and a very chic shade of blush pink – is just a plus.

In a video shared with Mamamia, Tina Abeysekara from the Instagram account, Trash to Treasured, demonstrates just how waterproof the fabric is…

It might not be the cheapest option at $119 but just think of the cost per wear. You can wear it with your summer dresses, chuck it on over your t-shirt and jeans and layer it with knits and sweaters once the winter months roll around.

Now before you click 'add to bag' - because, why wouldn't you? - here are a few styling options for you to consider.
