Anyone want to help me find a jacket?

It has come to my attention that I could do with a new jacket for work.

Criteria:
Can be plain or patterned
Would like it to be coloured, ideally.
Must be a 'Winter' colour (bright blue/green/red/pink/purple)
Not massively fussy about shape, though am quite an extreme hourglass so fitted best and not too boxy.
Need to be available in a 10

Anyone seen anything? I am shite at jackets...

I'm also looking for a jacket but am rather large-of-bust (32H)

I have never been into Zara before but have seen this blazer online which I think might work.

Have any other larger-busted ladies had any success with Zara blazers?

I'm a 32gg and had to try on extra large in Zara yesterday

Neverbeen did it fit ok?

Yes, it fitted fine, just a bit above my budget hmm

I think the sleeves were long though - I'm 5'9" if that gives you any idea of proportion.

I have that jacket, ellesabe. It's lovely...very soft and comfortable; like a sweatshirt. Maybe better for more casual office environments. I love how it fits but I have a teeny-tiny bust, so not sure how it would work on an hourglass shape?

Omg SC - I LOVE the way they describe their sizes!! Never seen that before!
At what point does one go from really curvy to super curvy though?!

^ ignore^ Have navigated round the site and found the info smile

Love the Pepperberry Jacket.. sizing is great too. I got a few things there and was very happy.

I love pepperberry too but am really after a pale blue one. I think a trip to Zara is in order...

Ooh thanks all, forgot about this thread! I have a couple of v similar Zara ones, which are great shapes but not wearing well at all. Hoping to find something that isn't majority polyester/viscose.

Nehru well, ideally it would work for both, but at the moment it would be in place of a coat IYKWIM.
