I need a waterproof but light coat.

Is this nice or naff (size 16 - I'm not overweight but I am quite tall with broad shoulders and long arms)

Forgot the '?'

In my opinion.....naff.

Petit Bateau do lovely raincoats at a similar price point

I like it (and would probably buy it myself if I wasn't on a spending curfew)!

Naff. But petit bateau very very nice.

I think the Joules signature patterns have become naff per se. The Petit Bateau ones are lovely classics though.

Naff.

Hideous.

Yes naff, like most of Joules.

I think it's too big of a floral statement but I like the base blue colour.

I like the pattern, but for a skirt not a coat. It's naff, sorry - but I hate the PB ones too. They look like children's coats.

Horrible, sorry! The print looks like something designed by the love child of my granny and Cath Kidston.

Go for a classic cut in a solid colour? I still wear the one my mum bought me when I started my first job after uni. I'm 33 now and it's still stylish.

blush thanks - I'm obviously a style vacuum!

It's a great shape but the pattern ruins it, IMO.

I don't mind it. I would wear it myself well not now. I don't like the petit bateau ones at all, not on a grown woman.

The Joules one is much more juvenile than the plain Petit Bateau ones!

I think it's the shape of the PB ones - v reminiscent of kids puddle jumping.
