It’s Parka Time!


It’s really no surprise that the biggest item trending right now is the parka. Whether you rock it on the streets or on the slopes, with a simple black dress and booties like Ashley Tisdale or over your favorite cozy sweater and skinnies like Sienna Miller, the parka is not what it used to be. No longer the purely utilitarian coat of old, the parka has evolved into a coat that is as stylish as it is functional. For the best of this trend, pick a coat in military green, grey blue, creamy neutral, or a ‘not for the faint of heart’ sassy print like THIS ONE. Don’t settle for less, either, because it’s all in the details: plenty of pockets, a cinched waist, furry trims ( I love this black one! ) shearling linings, eye-catching hardware, and cozy hoods.

I have expressed my love for this Madewell parka HERE and HERE and the love affair continues. It is one of the first pieces I pull out of my closet in September to take my favorite summer staples seamlessly into Fall.

Here is the new batch of parka jackets that are ready to ring in the new season with your pumpkin spice lattes, hay rides and football games.
