I somehow managed to keep the same winter coat going for that past three years. It is now quite definitively dead. Where am I going to get a new one? I am size 14, large of nork, need room underneath for a warm jumper and want it to be smart, fairly fitted and a nice cheerful colour (last one was green) - I am pale-skinned with reddish-brown hair. Budget is about £100ish. I was thinking of the Boden velvet one perhaps unless anyone has any better ideas?
The Boden velvet will not be warm...I have an almost identical velvet one from White Stuff last year- it is fine for autmn or wet warm days, but not when it is bitterly cold!
I have just got the Boden Boiled wool one to replace a 4yr old coat! I do have a smart black coat already, but wanted something a bit more casual and the BOiled Wool one is nice. I wished I were brave anough to buy it in Teal as that really IS my colour- but I have it in grey.
I have a Boden Velvet and it's not warm enough to have as your only winter coat - though ok for mildish days so if you really like it you could get it but hang onto your old one for snowy/frosty days? I think I wore mine a lot last winter and it was a coldish winter?
Have you a Kew near you? They usually have nice coats but would probably be more than £100 I would think...
