Can you find the right parka for me?

Because I am failing miserably. I feel like I have looked everywhere but it must me out there somewhere

It must be..
long with that dipped hemline at the back
able to pull in at the waist
And the bigger the fur trimmed hood, so much the better.

Ideally much less than £200, but for the right coat I could stretch to that.

DD1 got one in H&M last year for much, much less than that and lived in it all winter. Might be worth a look?

How about la redoute? this one for example, but they have quite a few different ones.

River Island - this one?

Looks a nicer green in real life with a muted orange lining...sizing is huge, though!

We need to merge both those parkas smile If I added the colour and back hemline of the La redoute one to the river island one that would be the perfect parka.

I've got the River Island one - it's gorgeous! Sizing is ginormous , I got a size 8 but I'm a 14 usually! Drawstring inside.

Topshop have a nice one in which I debated over but felt it was too heavy on, nice lining.

do you want a target at the back too with a who logo and an arrow grin

I'll pass on that thanks South, smile

What do you think of this one - more than 200 but would last forever i reckon

French connection have one that exactly fits the description you gave, as do M&S, I am currently debating between the 2..

Jack Wolfskin do an amazing parka that fits all your requirements, can't do links as am on phone. Check out their website, they are pretty pricy however.
