Bread, cereal, bananas . . . a new coat? The last place you would expect to find such a key element of your winter wardrobe is a few aisles down from the fish fingers.
But this season, the supermarkets have upped their fashion game and there are some surprisingly on-point styles to be picked up with your carrots. Particularly tempting are the heritage-inspired checked coats, which have filtered down from the catwalk, via the High Street, to your shopping trolley.
George at Asda has a striking black and acid-yellow take for just £25 (above) that’s not dissimilar to one from luxury brand Bottega Veneta. Meanwhile, Nutmeg, at Morrisons, has a wonderfully feminine grey and pink design (£30, in stores nationwide).
On the tweedier side, there are Prince of Wales checks aplenty. Tu at Sainsbury’s put the print on a trench (above) and cleverly avoided cheap buttons prone to pinging off in favour of hidden poppers.

The Duchess of Sussex set a high bar for the perfect checked coat with the Burberry cashmere-blend number she wore in Edinburgh earlier this year. But in a similar green and navy style, Tesco’s F&F tribute for £39 (in stores nationwide) has a contrasting charcoal collar — perfect for popping up against biting winter winds.
Checks aren’t for everyone, and there are plenty of other statement colours and shapes to try, such as Tu’s mustard, single-button coat (£35, above left), or, to stay snuggly in the snow, George’s fabulous caramel teddy coat (£35, george.com). Or perhaps a puffy, pink, satin-finish style reminiscent of a Kate Spade design is more your cup of tea (£70, Tu in Sainsbury’s stores nationwide). All very fashionable, but, you may well ask, should you really buy your coat from supermarket? Isn’t that a bargain too far?

Well, it depends what you’re looking for.
If you want a ‘forever’ purchase, head to John Lewis, Jaeger or Hobbs and choose the best wool coat your credit card allows. But if you’re quite happy to roll with the trends and buy from Zara Basics or H&M, then the quality of tailoring and fabrics from supermarkets is likely on a par.
Plus, nothing beats the gleeful triumph of finding your new winter coat when you popped out for a pint of milk.
