recommend me a floppy, loose-fitting woollen hat/beret and a padded coat or parka
Also a parka or non-bulky long padded coat in a bright colour, preferably blue or green? I love this grey Oska coat in the picture, but ordered it twice online in different sizes, both absolutely swimming on me, and Oska is a real pain to order online from...
I don't mind spending money for the right thing -- all suggestions appreciated.
I take a short cut through M and S most days, but haven't seen anything I liked at a casual glance -- I should look more closely.
Perspicicia, I don't even know who that is! (I'm a foreigner, without a clue of some UK pop cultural stuff... I have a biggish head and a lot of long, thick curly hair, and I hate the look and feel of tight-fitting hats on me.
Thanks, everyone -- mini, the JL one is pretty much exactly what I want, thank you. (And the fact that I specifically went to the nearest JL last week to look for a hat and didn't see it will remain a mystery. )
Can anyone offer any suggestions for a light padded/quilted coat or a warm parka in interesting colours? Everything I already own in that line is khaki/navy/black, and as I'm both outdoors fairly often in winter and will be taking two trips to very cold places this year, I'd like something more interesting or just not navy/black/khaki.
I saw a bright orange one on ASOS but fear it would make me look like a human pumpkin...
