Cosy-Cool Parka Perfect Cover For Party Dress

Form, function, and a little bit of couture. Parkas for all.

Beloved of the mods, this season’s parkas are the kind to enrage rockers everywhere.

The parka is one of those coat categories that defies the trends of time.

From the mods in the Sixties and Kate Moss in the Nineties to Alexa Chung right now, it has always held perennial appeal.


This season, designers have one again reimagined the modern classic with everything from colourful linings to insulating technology. The perennially cool coat is back for AW16 and it has never been easier to wear.


Consider this:

A coat that marries form and function, which protects against the elements while boasting wear-anywhere ease. Sound appealing?

Utility drawstring, classic orange linings, deep envelope surplus pockets and reinforced seams are still the story, but what’s new is how you wear it. Now, you can throw it on over jeans easily as slipping it over a silk dress or skirt. Or why not wear it at night over a black dress for a look that says hi-lo luxe?
