Okay - I have several light Autumn jackets and a big winter coat. What I fancy is a warmer coat that's good for cooler Autumn/winter days when I don't need the full-blown big black long woollen one.

So -
Size 12, 5'2"
Dark hair
Norks = 34E; quite a small waist and very narrow shoulders.

I want a bright colour (maybe purple or magenta or fuchsia) and it must be single breasted due to norks. Length about mid-thigh please.

Can anybody help me?

Thanks. I should have said: no belt because I am very short waisted and belts just sit under my norks and make me look v strange. The yellow one is too puffy; needs to be a more stream-lined shape I think - and not yellow; I have very pale skin and would look jaundiced.

Sorry and thanks. Please don't give up on me yet though!

Aha - the patterned one is just the right shape. I actually like the pattern too but £250 for a Per Una coat is just obscene.
