Please help me find a jacket/coat for the Spring/Summer that is casual enough to throw on for the school run but still smart ish.
I'm a size 18/20 depending on where it's from. Really like Navy but am conscious that the summer months are coming. Usually wear jeans and a nice tunic style top, but will wear a lot of linen trousers during summer.
I want something that will cover my tummy/skim bum.
Happy to spend upto about £150.
There are a couple of Barbour ones I like but not sure the padding will be all that flattering and also quite a few of them belt at the waist, and I often don't do my jacket up so they then look a bit daft with a belt hanging.
Final thing, it doesn't need to be waterproof as I have a shiny mac that is.
Please help. I'm losing the will to live but getting desperate!

Tie the belt in the back if it annoys you? banana republic £110

Good waist definition, blazer/parka hybrid? Asos £60

But I think you should def. try a Barbour to rule it out.
