I get cold. And I live in Scotland.

I need a coat that zips / buttons right up, can go over a cardi, but that looks summery.

Where should I look? Links greatly appreciated...

tassisssss, not sure. It is a contender, but it just lacks a certain something...! A hood maybe? Or a different fabric...

now considering this

and this...

tassisssss Wed 01-May-13 19:35:52 bidding on that one I PMed you about??

Actually I think you could rock the first M&S one...and I promise not to tell anyone it's from the old lady classic range!

Have had a link through all the links again... and just not seeing anything that i want to really consider.

I'm looking for shorter length...bright colour or a bold a fabric that is not just a plain cotton. I don't think one actually exists. But, if you do come across one in your travels, please report back! Thank you!

Sorry, m and s, not JL!

Ja9, I think your previous links were nicer than the JL one.

I saw some in Laura Ashley this week, on offer .... But they weren't perhaps as structured as you're looking for. Longer length and spotty ...

I have the red Hobbs trench coat that a couple of people have mentioned. I love love love it. I wear it for work but also to the park with jeans. It is such a statement colour that I don't have to bother making an effort with the rest of my outfit - think jeans and plain black, white, grey tshirt.

I like the joules ones a lot (though it's depressing that a quilted jacket counts for a spring/summer one!). There are pink/purple versions on ebay.

Desigual? No hoods though- windproof and looks lovely in park or in town.

cheaper ones!

Oh - now I really want the fatface charlie utility jacket - I have a penchant for those things. Somebody talk me out of it. I should never have opened the link.

Thanks ness for the john lewis suggestion. Tried it on and bought it today.

Absolutely perfect for work - what I have been looking for for 4 years :-)

Now want the joules one for casual though!

I have tried the Hobbs purple mac in real life and it looked odd without a collar to it. Shame as it was a lovely colour but I had to return it sad

Gap looks promising. Quite like this bit boring though?

Or this is bargainous...

Waswondering Sun 28-Apr-13 09:02:42

I like that JL one too. Is it worth phoning boden to ask about the short RDM?

ZenNudist Sun 28-Apr-13 08:59:15

Ooh good thread. I really want something waterproof with a hood and stylish. Seems that's not impossible to find!

Think I want a coat rather than a foldaway, but what do you think?

5madthings Sat 27-Apr-13 23:17:14

I need a summer jacket as well.

For some reason not all the links are working for me, the fat face one just takes me to their home page?

Quite like the sea salt one but that col our makes me look washed out.

ja9 Sat 27-Apr-13 23:09:11

so why is this not available?

Waswondering Sat 27-Apr-13 23:04:47

That sea salt one is lovely too.

ja9 Sat 27-Apr-13 22:54:25

I likey

ja9 Sat 27-Apr-13 22:52:39

just a bit pricey

ja9 Sat 27-Apr-13 22:51:18

this isn't quite summery enough is it?

Waswondering Sat 27-Apr-13 22:48:39

Wow, that last link is lovely, and such a bargain too.
