‘Tis the season to wrap up warm and we can’t think of a toastier addition to our wardrobes than a practical parka.
Super-snuggly and stylish, a parka is the perfect off-duty cover up and fantastically versatile when it comes to styling.
Perfect for pairing with skinny jeans, sneakers and a soft knit, or, for breaking the rules with by wearing over a heels-and-dress work uniform to keep the look toned down; the parka won’t fail you in your hour of need!
But don’t go all PC and snap up the standard khaki, fur-trimmed hood version! Look for exciting prints, shearling-lined hoods and belted styles for an interesting spin on this wardrobe classic.
