I need a winter coat for the school run which is flattering and stylish. Suggestions please. You only ever seem to be seen in your coat so would love a nice one but they always seem to make me look huge and shapeless - which i'm not. HELP!
some lovely ones there. I like the belted trench style coats would look good on my hourglass figure, however they all seem to be wool not sure they would withstand a good downpour? I need to be able to put it back on after a couple of hours not waiting days for it to dry ooh do I go for style of practicality or is there a compromise of both out there
I have a green ted baker parka from a number of years back. It's still going strong
Queenfee - I guess there's a trade-off between something truly waterproof and something that's not, but is sturdy and warm. I'd say the parkas fall in the latter category. tbh, if you still want truly waterproof, I think you're either looking at a mac type thing, a north face type coat or a lands end type (which imo don't really achieve the stylish requirement). This conundrum is why this thread appears endless times on mn
