The Perfect Parka...


Winter may not be quite over yet, but as we are heading into February our thoughts are turning towards lighter clothes! The first thing I usually switch is the heavy winter coat. But given the changeable weather we encounter at this time of year, we still need a cover-up for wet or windy moments!! I think the parka jacket (as seen on Emily above)  is a great piece to have on standby for those in-between days.. Here are a few styles you might like to consider if buying one...

A cosy design from French Connection...


This camel  number is so versatile from H&M

loving the dusky pink colour from the Limited collection at Marks and Spencer  ...


A classic lightweight option from Dorothy Perkins...

I think these would look fabulous accessorized with nice bright scarves in lovely Spring colours! They are also great for cooler days when a coat is too much ,yet you still need to wear something heavier than just a jumper!!

Happy Shopping

  16. I don't have a parka, because it doesn't get quite cold enough here, but I love the look of one over the dress, as in the first picture!

  17. I don't have a parka yet, I was looking this winter for a blue one, because kaki is not my color, but didn't find one :-( They are all kaki or brown colors x
