I was also going to suggest a duffle coat or a trench coat. Topshop have duffles in maroon and dark green, otherwise something vintage?

The art students in my house wear duffle coats from ebay.

I teach in an art school. practical not often on the fashion agenda I'm afraid. But a parka would probably work well....a vintage army surplus one maybe or this (sorry don't know how to link). Urban Outfitters though pricey, is good for inspiration

Not waterproof but a duffle coat ? this from River Island is cosy but non-traditional looking.

Also RIsland this looks good & more rainproof.

Practical nice parka from H&M

Ideas please!
I admit I have no style, and only want something practical (i.e warm, not too fussy,possibly rain resistant-dd uses buses) for my 18 year old dd xmas prezzie.
She hasn't seen anything,and is currently walking out wearing my furry coat (I bought it when I was pregnant with her) which is enormous and not rainproof.
She wont wear walking coats, so can anyone suggest anything?
I thought Parka or Reefer but need more inspiration and or links.
Thanks
