I'm finding it hard to see anything for my dd (6) to wear to school (i.e. washable) to keep her warm and beautiful this winter. Any ideas?

Next have some really lovley ones in at mo - have a look on line!

I have looked in Next Oxford Street today and online but I couldn't see any that weren't super puffy. My dd is a very slim build and she gets lost in that kind of coat.

Sleepy cat that is a nice coat.

I like the really traditional navy ones - do they call them Princess coats? My dd would love a pink one though for sure!

The Boden duffle coat is dry clean only. I've just bought the grey one (the lining is bright pink btw, I thought it looked red in the book).

They do last though, DD1 had a navy one for 2 or 3 years which I've now passed onto DD2.

sleepycat, no good for dd as only goes up to age 4-5, plus it doesn't look washable. I've learned that that's a key component to a school coat!

Duchess whats the sizing like? DD is 8 but tall and skinny usually buy her age 10 but want it to last.

The pink Next one is machine washable.

Classic winter coats for girls anyone? John Lewis? Mothercare? Can't bear anything in Barbie pink or with anything faux fur on it., eugh

notso - DD1 is nearly 7 and the age 7-8 fits her, with a bit of growing space and length in the sleeve. She's quite tall for her age and and slim.

Flum, I wouldn't get the pink one for dd for school even if it were in her size, it's just not appropriate for the amount of clambering around she does.

flum - M&S have wool swing coats in navy, red and pink-check but not sure what age they go up to.

notsoteenagemum my dd has discovered Tammy at BHS as well.

MMMM just looked at them. Nice ish. not exactly what I am imagining. something outof Enid Blyton I think.

I like that M&S swing coat, but can't work out if it's washable, probably not. I might go down there and take a look though tomorrow. I think the largest size 5-6 might fit dd as she's so narrow.
