Fashionista NOW: Earthy Green Parka Coats Fashion Inspiration

Credit | I amERIKA

How to wear parka coats in earthy green and make them your effortless go-to outerwear this season? We have it covered for you.

I did not grow up wearing parka coats so my view is influenced only by the new media where I gawk at pretty strangers in four-season-afflicted lands from a screen. Thus, I don’t dislike the parka as much as someone who say, was forced to wear it to school or anywhere else when they were young. Funny, how little things in childhood can completely change the way a person views a piece of garment. Forcing does breed contempt, even in matters of vanity.

In the modern fashion world, the parka is an outerwear trend that enters the fashion scene for both autumn and winter wear that it has slowly lodged into the special place in my mind where clothes I-can’t-wear-but-would-love-to reside. The official return of the parka this year was recently highlighted by Topshop’s AW14 ad campaign with Cara Delevingne sporting one fine-looking fur-trimmed parka.

Although the parka is sometimes called an anorak, it is technically not the same garment as the latter is waterproof, hooded, pull-over jacket without a front opening with drawstrings at the waist and cuffs (but not all the time). The parka, on the other hand, is a cold-weather outerwear that extends to the knee, has a front opening and is lined with warm synthetic fiber, and a hood that is trimmed with fur (or not).

With the modern day’s designers’ inclination to mixing and matching things up, the confusion is to be expected as lines between so-called distinct jacket styles blur with each borrowing elements from the other, kind of like how women’s fashion draws endless inspiration from the men’s fashion department these days. In the same vein, parka coats are made to appeal to both sexes. It’s a unisex outerwear style that carries a relaxed and casual feel that can be used to dress an outfit down.
