Trench coat with added Ooh La La!

Despite them being everywhere I'm struggling to find a nice trench coat.
I'm looking for a stylish beige/camel/taupe one (not cream) that will instantly provide me with that timeless Parisian chic that I am after! grin

Price wise I can probably stretch to over £100 if it is amazing... but it must be machine washable (and that's the issue!)
Any ideas?

Are you petite? nb disclaimer: I am going by colour, as I'm certainly no expert on parisian chic

Taupe via Debenhams...

Oh, replies already - thank you!
I quite like the whitestuff one, but am really looking for classic trench coat. The Gap one is actually ideal - colour, budget, style... but I've tried it and need an extra small - which is naturally sold out!
Asos one is lovely, but am not petite, sadly!

If you've got one near you, muji has some really nice trench coats at the moment. You can't buy online though.

Also Banana
Republic's are good - a little over your budget but they do plenty of discounts. They have slightly padded shoulders though which could be a problem if you are wearing over a suit - also, a really long belt with a buckle, but no holes on the belt so the buckle is just decorative.

I have just bought a trench coat (though I was looking for navy originally) so have done the research.

That is a nice one on Banana Republic, but sadly is not machine washable... that is a deal breaker! grin
