J.Crew still reigns supreme when it comes to the must-have cold-weather basic. The Chateau Parka. The perfect parka is just crucial to combat the freezing temps Mother Nature throws our way.
Anyone who’s survived a tough winter knows that coats can make all the difference, but let’s be honest—they’re far from perfect. Some offer too much coverage while others not enough, and they’re notoriously bulky. There’s no need to sacrifice style when it’s cold out.
The Chateau parka has earned it’s great reputation as a celebrity style favorite for good reason. It sold like hotcakes last year and has been brought back in 10 (!!!) colors this year. It’s cozy soft yet structured and has the attention to detail that makes it the perfect style statement. The swing A-line shape is flirty, the material is warm, and the removable faux-fur trim on the hood adds a touch of sophistication. I chose the grey color and it is so versatile, I can wear it with literally everything in my closet. And the best part of this coat is plenty of pockets to keep my hands warm.
I recommend sizing down. I am wearing the 2 (normally a 2-4) and I have plenty of room to wear a cozy sweater underneath.
