The Target Dry Georgia Parka.
It was while reading the School Gate Style blog last year that I first came across Target Dry. The Georgia parka was featured and I immediately loved the look of it before discovering that it was also windproof and 100% waterproof. There are two great colours to choose from - Indigo Blue or a vibrant Beetroot Red and it has a detachable hood with a faux fur trim. I decided to give it a go, especially as the blogger was offering a 15% discount code off the price of £74.99, making it practically a bargain! The code also still works if you enter SCHOOLGATE15 at the checkout.
The coat arrived the next day and I couldn't believe how perfect it was. The shape is super flattering and the adjustable drawstring waist means you can have the parka as fitted or relaxed as you choose. I ordered the size 10 but there is room for lots of layers underneath so I would say there is no need to size up. Another bonus is that the coat covers your bum! It is incredibly lightweight seeing as it's their winter version but beautifully cosy even on really frosty mornings. The hood stays up and I can confirm that it is fully waterproof, having had multiple opportunities to test this out!
So, if you are looking to buy only one thing in January, I would fully recommend this. Ideal for the school run or country walks where you might get caught in the rain but not out of place worn to the pub with friends.
Now I could really do with the lighterweight Emily version for spring.......
