Autumn Coat needed, practical and flattering?!

I'm looking for a waterproof, cover-the-bum, coat, def needs a hood, and pockets. Casual enough to walk the dogs in but pretty enough to wear as a raincoat if going out in the evening. Durability may have to take priority over prettiness, but still, would love your suggestings. Under £200 - thanks

I'd concentrate on the practical coat and use my 'usual' coat plus umbrella for going out. No suggestions, though, too early in the season.

Definetly the Merrell Wakefield - shapely, hood and pockets, warm enough for autumn, bum covering, waterproof.
I got mine last winter after reading all the reviews on here and still love it. I got the pretty plum colour but it comes in black as well.
They were £150 ish last year but Go Outdoors are selling them for £120 now. Definetly worth the money.
