Lunchtime buy: Barbour Olive Winter Force Parka

So, the wind and rain has finally arrived here in the UK, and after a few weeks of blissfully mild weather, we need a little reminding how to dress appropriately for the elements.

This is where Barbour comes in: the South Shields based brand has its roots in designing jackets and macs especially for rainy days a.k.a Typical English Weather. John Barbour originally started the company to produce jackets to protect fishermen at sea, so we know we’re in safe hands when it comes to wearing something to shield us from the wind and rain.

This Olive parka is ideal for covering up on chilly days. Teamed with skinny jeans and chelsea boots, it’ll look stylish and warm on rainy days, and will help with those gale force winds we’re experiencing too! Then, come festival season time, it’ll look simply sweet with pretty tea dresses and wellies. Perfect!
