Help me with my Boden dilemma

My mum wants to buy me a coat for Christmas, but get it now-ish for winter. I'm trying to build my capsule wardrobe and, if it helps, I'm a sahm who prefers to look very smart when possible. I am ditching most of my wardrobe which is well-worn supermarket stuff that's not worth the charity shop's time and trying to invest in a few nice (read 'naice') pieces.
I have accrued a couple of nice radley bags - one black, one tan with a little navy doggy. I have a full length black overcoat, and a princess length grey coat with a full skirt. I have tan ankle boots and some lovely new black knee boots.
I quite like this

in camel but am mildly concerned that it could clash with the tan items (or my auburn hair, but that's harder to guess).
What do you think? Better in the navy mix? Or will I look a sight anyway?
(the reviews that say it is flattering to those with a tum make me rejoice as I'm still working on the baby weight -having troughed 2/3 of a tub of Ben and Jerry's core tonight

Oh milky. Whatever, loser. Try again.

That model has annoying bouncy hair.

Looks alright. Bit fitted and formal. Is that what you want it for?

Yes, annoying bouncy hair. There's a woman who's learned the perils of lipgloss.
Yes indeed to the formal. Truthfully I am rather formal. The capsule wardrobe idea is meant to lead to me looking posh and 'done' all the time, or at least in my head it is. I'd wear it with indigo jeans and tab boots, or a black knee length jersey skirt, black jumper and black kneeboots. That's my plan.

The tonal look can be lovely. Go with your gut get the tan -- there's almost always free shipping and returns.
