With the storm season causing a lot of panic and uncertainty these days, the stylish students on campus are definitely keeping in check with their daily outfits. Although Kingston weather is nowhere near as drastic as that in the East Coast, this university town definitely experiences some sporadic weather.
There seems to be no shortage of stylish exchange students at Queen’s this semester, as evident in this young man’s ensemble. Wearing a leading Scandinavian fashion brand called Filippa K, it is no wonder that some of the best clothes and fashions come from Europe. His dark army jeans perfectly contrast his light denim dress shirt, and his neutral parka is essential for stormy days in Kingston. This student definitely came prepared for the chilly canadian weather.
If you are already searching for winter-appropriate basics, parkas are definitely the way to go, especially in this dark olive color! The cool shearling peeking out from underneath is also an added bonus—creating a fashion statement and keeping you warm at the same time. Rather than opting for your traditional Canada Goose parka, try these variations in wool or a lightweight nylon material. For a more utilitarian look, this padded parka by Filippa K exudes cool style and ease.
Hint: When choosing the perfect winter parka, it is all about the fit! Look for lengths that hit just below the hips to avoid looking swallowed up in your jacket, and look for linings such as fur or patterns to create interest. A neutral color will also ensure a timeless piece for many winters to come!
