I've found a good cheapo coat, what colour should I get?

I don't have much money for a coat but thought this one from Asda looked bargainous

I like the pink but I'm really not good at matching colours. Could you lovely MNers help me? I own two pairs of jeans that I pretty much live in, one blue and one black. And I have two pairs of boots, one black and one dark brown.

Would pink go with black jeans? Or brown boots? Or should I just get the grey version?

I bought a mahoosive one in red when I was pregnant (January baby) and loved it. I'm donating it to SIL who is pregnant now. It's affectionately known as the hippo coat in our family grin

I loved the pink one when I saw it in asbo's the other day!

Anna Thank you but I managed to get one on Thursday! Only just mind! They didn't have any on the rail. I got in a huff and stomped around all the clothes and there it was, hidden behind some jumpers. I reckon someone had hidden it for later. Well finders keepers grin

I got the navy duffle coat a few weeks ago. I love it but not sure how warm it's going to be in the depths of winter.

DD1 has a Sainsbury's cheap ladies coat, I think this it's third winter. It's done ridiculously well.

I got it in a huff because she's allergic to the woll in her expensive next one, and wouldn't wear it even with a scarf.

I got the red duffle earlier in the week but the 8 was too small so I've sent it back.

A size 14 in pink was in stock in my local asda yesterday... if you are in the midlands Faye I could share this top secret info grin

issimma It feels like thick felt is the best way I can describe it! I think with layers it could be pretty warm.

Thanks anna I possibly shouldn't have mentioned it, then they might have had more stock! < eyes size 14 MN'ers > hmm wink

I have it in red, it is gorgeous! Bought it in store so don't know about online availability. Have been making people guess how cheap it was!

So glad it has the MN seal of approval smile

Good luck finding the pink one!

Well I went yesterday to get my pink one and they didn't have my size, I was gutted! I tried the next size up and although it was too big I can tell it'll be a good one for me to wear. I may consider going to the big Asda Living today to see if they have it!

I also brought the grey military style last winter and it still looks fab but because I lost so much weight it now looks like a sack of potatoes on me blush

lisad123 Mon 08-Oct-12 22:06:42

I have green military one ordered and should be at local store tomorrow grin

HoopDePoop Mon 08-Oct-12 21:52:53

Grr the plum military coat is out of stock in 8 and 10 now <glares at MN>

SuperDuperJezebel Mon 08-Oct-12 17:02:26

I love the mustard duffle coat, I'm not sure if it would suit my colouring tho, blonde with quite a pinky skin tone?

Dillydollydaydream Mon 08-Oct-12 16:19:02

Ooh I like the burgundy duffle coat.

chaosisawayoflife Mon 08-Oct-12 16:08:54

Thanks for this op. I went in today and ended up buying the plum military coat. It was a much more flattering colour and shape on me than the others. The pink one is lovely, but wasn't a great shape on me. I also loved the red duffle coat but 1yo dd2 is currently wearing an almost identical one!

NettoSuperstar Mon 08-Oct-12 12:52:06

Just ordered the red duffle.
My friend has it so I know I like it in the flesh.
The grey is sold out in my size, but might go up there later in the week to look at the others.

HoopDePoop Sun 07-Oct-12 20:01:02

I quite fancy the military coat in plum, has anyone seen it in the flesh? Looks just like
A French Connection one I had when younger.

I saw the pink coat at my local asda today and am going to go back and get It tomorrow - I love pink but thought it was a lovely coat - I liked the red version too if you're not a fan of pink

BigFatLegsInWoolyTIghts Sun 07-Oct-12 17:36:33

Pink It goes with lots and looks cheerful. Plenty of time for grey when you're dead I say!

FayeKinitt Sun 07-Oct-12 17:33:43

Met with my friend today who says they have the coat at our local Asda. She said they also have other colours available not on the website! As if I wasn't dithering enough!

She was going to buy the pink one herself but now I've said I'm getting it she may go for the red or a mustard colour version she saw so we don't look like complete twinnies! I can see it's going to be common as muck but I don't care grin

travail I'm pale-ish with lots of slap on and have mid brown hair and grey roots
