Seasonal Staple – The Parka Jacket

This winter has been one of the coldest in ages here on our tiny island and I think everyone is with me on this one. Though I really hate winter, I have to admit that I much prefer winter fashion for it is definitely smarter and more elegant. Not to mention the fact that I have 63598745 coats and jackets and I get to wear them as much as I like!

My life saviour this year has been the Parka jacket which is typically khaki or black in colour and usually has a fur trim around the hood. Most of them are lined with shearling as well so it is no wonder that we have been seeing them all around to keep us warm during these chilly months.

Since focuses on being a fashion portal with a particular emphasis on women’s fashion, I would like to show you how to style the Parka in three feminine outfits, but of course men and children can wear it as well! There’s a Parka for everyone out there!


The first combination is easy – pick something comfortable for running daily errands or shopping and don the Parka to keep you warm and stylish, at the same time!


If you’re more into heels, the Parka complements them well too, you know! Just add a nice jumper and some accessories to jazz it up.

Last but not least, here’s a more dressed up approach to this wardrobe staple. Just wear it over a dress and peep-toe booties for a more glam look guaranteed to keep you warm all night!
