Fashionista NOW: Chic Parka Fashion Inspiration

Sweater weather has extended into the bone-chilly season where layering’s a must. Parka season begins.

A parka is a type of coat with a front opening that is typically knee-length and has a (faux or genuine)fur-lined hood. It is made for cold weather wear and is insulated with warm synthetic fiber, which lends to a bulky look.

But over time, the parka’s maximum utilitarian look has been given a more streamlined interpretation so that it appeals to the masses of fashion-conscious ladies (and men) who want to keep warm without sacrificing style.

This year’s military green and camo trends make their predicted appearances on the season’s most coveted parka styles.

While the term ‘anorak’ has been used to refer to the parka, the latter is technically a different style of coat where it is a waterproof, hooded, pull-over jacket without a front opening. It occasionally features drawstrings at the waist and cuffs.

There’s something sporty/cozy about the parka that would appeal to ladies who prefer a touch of menswear in their weather-resistant coats.

The fur-lined hood offers comfort in a way that doesn’t diminish the wearer’s sense of style.

And if oversized coats are the way to this year’s celebrated look, you can be sure that a little bulk on your parka may just be what you need, aesthetically speaking.

And…Is it just me or the whole hooded look oozes a bit of mystery? I’m not sure, but if you find hooded coats exciting, perhaps we can hang out for a cuppa?

Ramble aside, here are a roundup of parka-adorned lookbookers beating the cold weather in style. I hope you’ll gain some points on how to enliven your cold weather wardrobe from them.
