I am looking for a new coat.
I have been looking on ebay as budget is limited.
I'd probably prefer a second hand better quality coat.
Do I go for a wool belted trench coat or a boyfriend style single breasted no belt type?
I will probably want to wear with long boots and skirts but would be nice to be able to wear with jeans and boots too!
I don't want much do I ? haha!
I am 42 if that matters and would quite like to feel fairly 'trendy' not old lady coat.
I'm size 10 ish and 5'3 on a good day smile

Have a look on Tesco website, they have some lovely coats.

Also, eBay shops, house of Fraser have one. Always worth a try?

Belted. Can be dressed up or casual. The boyfriend coats are awesome, but are very much suited to certain look or fashion style IMO

Would you go for wool or maybe a thinner fabric?
I'm thinking wool might add a few pounds and make me look chunky ?

Id go try a few on and then see how I felt. It's cold. I like to be warm - I don't care about how heavy I look in a coat smile
