Plus-size, professional, don't want to freeze to death.

This is the first winter I've routinely been going to work in a suit (mostly skirts, sometimes trousers). I need a winter coat that's going to work with this, and also with the fact that I'm a size ~18.
Something warm enough for Ohio and the fact that my car takes some time to warm up. Black, ideally, and under $200 or so, although I'm willing to be a bit flexible with that if it's something that's really going to hold up well--I'd like to get a couple years out of it, anyway.
I'm in my early 30s, and so I don't want anything that looks too much like my mother would wear it, either. Not that my mother wears suits to work, nor any of the other women in my family, so I'm a little lost on that end of things.
