ALL IN THE DETAILS: The Parka

Do you ever want to roll out of bed and style an outfit that’s comfortable and gives off the, “I don’t care what I look like, but you know I look good” vibe? One staple go to item that will do the trick is the parka! It’s a cool nod to fighting the winter elements and is versatile. The parka comes in a variety of styles, ranging from longer to shorter hems, military greens, crisp shades of khaki and deep navy blues. They’re durable, thick or thin, can be waterproof, fur lined and are super comfy.

Check out this Fashionista’s styling of the parka jacket. She snagged it from Free People which is popular for its bohemian women’s fashion. Keeping the theme of boho chic, this massively oversized jacket is lined with lush shaggy fur and an ultimate pick. Paired with black leggings and simple accessories— a light scarf, beanie, ankle booties and just the right amount jewelry polish the outfit.

Grab the look by purchasing a parka you can wear all year round. A loose enough jacket will allow you to layer garments underneath if warmth is what you seek. Cropped versions and prints go the extra mile in versatility. Also, don’t be afraid to invest a pretty penny in a parka jacket because they can last a great deal of time. When looking for this utility coat, avoid the overly shiny quilted versions that are reminiscent of rain slickers.

How To: Pair your parka with an oversized sweater, tights and combat boots for a grunge boho look. Accessorize with a few midi rings and hoop earrings. For a posh look, drape your parka over distressed boyfriend jeans, a sheer white button-down and a sexy pair of high heel ankle booties. Accessorize with a few thin layered necklaces and messy bed hair.
