Can you link to your most stylish winter coat (it must be warm and have a proper hood)
In reality you're not going to get a super stylish coat that is going to be technically efficient. I've got the north face Juneau which is a gorgeous thick waterproof parka, not the most gorgeous but keeps me warm and dry at the football and will last me years.
What about the north face Boulevard it's not got a hood but is lovely and warm and waterproof!
This has just come into Whistles. They haven't detailed what it's made of but you could ring and find out (their coats usually have a really good percentage of wool in them). I love the colour but could never carry it off! If you have pale skin, blue eyes and blonde hair or have dark eyes, hair and skin, it could look lovely on you!
It's not on John Lewis' website yet but, if you like it, at £250 it might be worth waiting for it to hit John Lewis and wait for one of their 20% events! I think they're be some coming up in the run-up to Christmas, the SA I spoke to in there recently certainly seemed to think there'd be a few, although she couldn't say when, obviously.
This has the potential to look frumpy so you'd have to try it on (15% off Hobbs full-price until 11am tomorrow with promo code FLASH):
I have beautiful wool long coats from Hobbs and coast and a very toasty down filled puffa style jacket from john lewis. all past seasons so no links but the puffa style one is soo soo warm,
what i dont have is something waterproof for nipping out when it is pouring with rain all year round as my kagoul has started leaking. Any opinions on this one please? http://www.joules.com/Women/Jackets-Coats/Dakota/Womens-3-In-1-Jacket/Marine-Navy?id=P_DAKOTA|MARNAVY
