Coats for pre-teens?

Eldest DD (11, but v tall and skinny) needs a new autumn/spring/rain coat, and my usual options (Boden!) don't quite seem to be fitting the bill. She's a bit too big for many child sizes, and too small for women's. Where do you shop for these pre-teens? She's not particularly fashion conscious, HATES pink, or anything too fussy, and is pretty practical when it comes to clothes...

How tall is she? Didriksons Maya may fit the bill smile

New Look and River Island have teen ranges.

She's about 5' I'd say, will check out Didricksons, thank you. Will also think about New Look and River Island, but my little experience of them both is they're fashion-led, a bit polyester-y in their clothes ranges (I'm a bit of a natural fabrics nut), and not necessarily built for practicality?

The Maya looks great (as do a few others on Viking Kids), thank you!
