Looking for a stylish, cool, lined wool / non "waterproof bum coverer" winter coat and I'm struggling with something that's not boring or old fashioned (or a million pounds) but also not this giant oversized full length drop shoulder style which will look awful on me... Please link to what you've bought or want to buy this season.

(Sorry if this has already been done)

I got this and am v pleased with it.

If you have a bigger budget Ted Baker have some beautiful belted wool coats. M&S seem to have a few nice ones too.

I have a three year old Ted baker one that's gorgeous

Hobbs, Jigsaw, Ted Baker and Reiss all do good wrap coats.

I've bought this:

Last year I bought this in a chocolate brown:

I also have a very glam fur trimmed long black wrap coat from Jigsaw which they haven't done this year, but I get lots of compliments.

Colour, size, budget?

I fancy trying this wool peacoat from next.

Lands End do lovely wool coats.

I have just got this

This []] - I love it!

Shmoo good question

Colour - definitely not black. I'd prefer a mid to light shade actually. Grey, taupe, petrol or a gentle navy could also work.

Size - 8 to 10

Budget - about £250. Don't want anything too cheap eg sub £100 as I know the quality won't be there. I know it won't be great even above £100 but hoping for £200 I could get something decent...

anything here ? jaeger outlet

Thanks for links

Anything with a big revere collar looks bloody awful on me. Makes me look bigger than I am somehow. So pea coats aren't a great look for me. Ideally I need something with a high or slim neck if that makes sense.

That Ted baker coat is very nice but maybe a bit too smart/dressy! I live in jeans and ankle boots and I think that would look better over dresses perhaps? Also that colour would be terrible on me.

I like reiss coats but they too are verging on a tad too smart or corporate.. will check out jigsaw

Admittedly out of budget but this from Reiss?

MorrisZapp Thu 13-Oct-16 20:31:38

I love a double breasted wool coat, especially in gray or navy.

Peacoats are more a jacket though really aren't they.

minipie Thu 13-Oct-16 20:37:18

or this from Boden (shown in grey but comes in various more interesting colours too)

Asos is worth a look

Zara have great coats at the moment. Sorry I can't do links. Check out their website.
Also have a good selection too.

camtt Thu 13-Oct-16 20:50:27

this one's going to be too cheap for you, but DD lured me into NewLook recently and it was good in the ways other things weren't - especially not the oversize look, which is no good if you are small and made me look like I was a child in mummy's coat. It's also a colour I liked (though wish they had done the bottle green in petite). received compliments on its first outing!

KatharinaRosalie Thu 13-Oct-16 21:16:03

I have a gorgeous petrol one from Esprit, but cant' see it on their website any more. How about

squiz81 Thu 13-Oct-16 22:05:18

That monsoon coat is just the style I've been after. Looking on the style & beauty boards always end up costing me money...

puglife15 Thu 13-Oct-16 22:05:52

Thanks - minipie I like the Boden colours but it's not lined so not great for cold weather. Hobbs 2nd one is quite nice.

Camtt that NL coat is nice! Shame such a low wool content.

I quite like this - thoughts?.

ShmooBooMoo Fri 14-Oct-16 12:43:38

This is really nice and has a high wool, alpaca and mohair content so will be warm:

TheTroutofNoCraic Fri 14-Oct-16 14:11:56

I have this one. It's cosy and flattering. I like my winter coat to be a bright colour, as everything else I wear is black and grey this time of year.

FiddleFigs Fri 14-Oct-16 14:21:17

how do you feel about a cocoon shape?

[[ This one] from Whistles is lovely. I have something v similar from JL in royal blue, which I bought last year and love (looks great with jeans).
