I need a coat, please help!

I go through the same thing this time every year, I need a coat to last me until I don't wear one!
I'm currently wearing a lovely parka, not too thick, but still too warm and big on sunnier days (I'm not far from Newcastle, first sign of sunshine and its too warm to wear a big coat).
I've looked at unlined/unpadded parkas but they're a bit too pac-a-mac for my liking. Denim or pleather jackets are too short. I'd ideally like something that is just past my hips, lightweight, but not a mac as they seem to look hideous on me.
By the way, I'm a New Look, Primark, Peacocks kind of girl as my budget usually doesn't stretch further than that unless I can find an eBay bargain.
Please help, I can't seem to find anything suitable.
Oh, I'm 5'1" short, long body but short legs, size 14 but apple shaped so look heavier, and quite heavy busted so double breasted is also a no go area.
Thanks in advance.

Have a look on the house of fraser site.
They had some lovely coats and jackets in the clearance section.
