Parka Coat Perfection

 

The winter season is looming around the corner and it's time to find the perfect coat that will see you through those cold, rainy months. We know how difficult it is to find a coat that looks good and keeps you warm, but we think the classic parka coat holds the answer!

 

Parka coats have always been a popular style, however this season they are hotter than ever. The palette for parka coats in A/W 16 is neutral- think beige, khaki and taupe. This means you can style them with anything, from your fave skinny jeans and boots to a simple shift with block heels. The neutral palette also means your parka will never go out of style, so get ready to invest in a piece that will be a firm favourite in your wardrobe for many seasons.

 

The beauty of parka coats is their warmth. Unlike a lot of other winter coats, parka's actually keep you warm with their thick, padded lining and occasional quilted detailing. This means you don't have to worry about freezing to death whilst looking stylish, as the parka will keep you toasty and bang on trend for A/W.

 

Faux fur detailing is another reason why we're obsessed with parka coats- most of them feature a faux fur collar or hood, giving this look a feminine edge. If you're not a faux fur fan, many parka coats feature a detachable collar or hood so you can mix it up or get rid if you're not feeling the style.

 

For styling, parka coats can be thrown over almost any outfit for an instant luxurious cover-up. They go best however with some fitted skinny jeans, a cosy knitted jumper and knee high boots to create a look that is both practical and super glam. If you're not sure which parka is the best one for your wardrobe, choose a black version to avoid any clashing and you'll have a coat that will go with anything in your closet.

 

Say goodbye to winter coat blues with a parka coat!
