Trend alert; Parkas are all the rage this winter! Which is great news because they’re ultra comfy. Luckily for all you fashion forward lasses, it’s not too difficult to look super stylish in a parka. But, just in case you need a little help figuring out how to make your parka pop this winter here are 5 parkas we know you’ll love and how to wear them!
1. Effortlessly Chic:
Parkas come in all sorts of colours and patterns and are a great way to fight cold weather. They’re waterproof, comfortable, durable, and far more practical than other ‘trendy’ jackets you might find in stores this season. If you’re looking for a dressier option then this London Fashion Hub Parka with fur detail on the hood is the ideal investment. A more tailored version like the one below will amp up the style of a usually casual piece and easily add structure to your outfit. Pair it with a pair of skinny jeans, a white T-shirt and knee-high boots for a chic winter look.
2. In the army:
We love military-style parkas like this one from Mr Price as they are both practical and chic! Find a version that is loose enough to layer underneath so you can pile on shirts, T-shirts or sweaters and still have room to move. For a stylishly casual look pair your parka with a checked shirt, grey T-shirt, skinny jeans and ankle boots.
3. Get waisted:
Belted or gathered versions like this Retro Zip Parka (R999) from Witchery at Woolworths give even the puffiest parka a bit of shape. Zip it up and cinch it in to give your outfit a fitted look. Pair it with a tights, a fabulous dress and high-heeled ankle boots for a chic look.
4. Wrap up:
This parka with faux fur trim is ideal for rainy, windy days. Lined with fleece around the neckline and quilted lining throughout, you can wear this jacket with a simple top or a casual winter skirt with tights and a blouse.
5. Go glam:
If you’re looking to make a serious statement with your parka this season then you can’t go wrong with this ultra stylish Raw for the Oceans, Radar XL Parker from G-Star Raw. This oversized coat has the most gorgeous all-over pattern with roll-up sleeves and denim-style pockets. Wear it with a pair of jeans and sneakers or spice it up with skinny jeans and high heeled ankle boots.
** Extra Tip: Up the anti of your parka with loads of winter accessories. Beanies and trapper hats look super cosy on cold winter days and you can never go wrong with a chunky scarf.
