Just that really - do you have different ones for different occasions?

What do you wear for work?
What do you wear for taking the kids to the park / zoo / museum?
What do you wear to the pub?

What styles are they and what brand / which shop did you get them from?

Coats make me happy. smile I think hanging around on this thread too long might prove an expensive mistake. Pixie, I'm coveting your cord one.

Compared to the rest of you I'm very boring and functional in my coat choices.
However I do have nice bags to make up for it grin

Work - depends on the weather but I don't have a particular work coat
Park etc - again depends on the weather. Parka if cold, leather or demin jacket. Cotton parka.
Pub - usually a leather biker, unless it's feezing.

I have:
denim jacket
three leather bikers
2 jersey bikers
Parka London parka
cheapo parka
cotton parka
grey peacoat
ugly raincoat in a bag type thing which I only ever wear in summer rain on holiday
black jersey blazer - wear this a lot in summer

I have others, but those are the main/most worn ones.

I have a fair few coats and jackets, actually. I always feel like I never have THE right one for the occasion, though, which is probably why I am always buying them.

Big grey/green Didrikson parka
Massive black puffa jacket with furry hood from TK Maxx
- both for cold winter days, but didn't even get them out this year.

Black hooded coat from Next
Navy hooded raincoat from Zara
Navy shorter mac from Burberry
- for drizzly, cool, school-run sort of days (ie. most of the blood time in this country)

Long black belted coat from Ted Baker
Long grey belted coat from Asda/George
Shorter black swing coat from Boden
Fitted grey funnel coat from Next
- all for work

Black leather biker jacket from River Island
Black and blue short jacket from Chanel (charity shop find!)
Black fake fur coat from Topshop
Black suede and fake fur coat from Topshop
- all for going out t'pub etc

Many blazers, cardis etc that I occasionally wear on the rare Spring-like day.

BrendasGotABaby Thu 07-Apr-16 18:42:43

Oh, and one long swishy black and red MaxMara coat for posh events
