One thing that is definitely certain in life is that winter will come around and it needs to find you prepared. Of all the winter essentials you’ll be stocking up on, the original parka jacket cannot be left behind. Along with the fact that it can be worn with every kind of winter shoe, the parka coat is a definite winter staple must-have to keep the nippy weather at bay. Besides being the turn to coat when the weather gets cold, easy, warm, cool and practical a few adjectives you can associate with the parka jacket. Whether you want to rock the mens parka jacket with t-shirts or the ladies parka jacket over dresses, this is one item that is a throw on and go kind of clothing. All parka jacket women will tell you that the green parka jacket comes in a colour for winter, along with the greys, browns and oranges. Be it over jeans, trainers, sweaters, from the Friday night out to office days during the week, it works for every occasion and we love it. Let us backtrack for a moment here, what is a ladies parka? The original parka has a hood and a zip that runs from top to bottom. It is traditionally made from heavy cotton and thick enough to keep you warm and protected from whatever weather conditions that the outside has in store for you. You can dress it up and down with cool accessories and a selection of our Fossil watches to make it a style staple for the chilly day. A winter staple that is cosy, comfy and comes in a range of styles, colours and sizes. The black parka jacket is definitely our favourite because black goes with just about any other colour. The perfect fitting parka should fit loosely, with the base that hangs from the shoulders into an A line cut. Going too slim or tight when it comes to the parka is rarely ever a good idea. Wearing a loose fit is perfect for any shape or size, while still keeping the cool and structured style without losing shape. Remember that your parka should have enough volume to fit over your winter layers without feeling heavy or bulky. When it comes to length, a good parka falls long and anything above the waist loses the purpose of the style that comes with this clothing item. Head over to your Superbalist App and pick out one (or a few) in your favourite colour, size and style to rock for those cold and rainy weathers. So, it’s an office day, probably a Friday and you want to jazz up your outfit with some personality, grab a parka and throw it onto your suit jacket instead of a winter trench coat. We can promise that you will definitely feel like you are on your way to work with a big and comfy blanket. You can even pretend that you never left bed. Don’t forget to not overdo on the details, and that’s the rule of thumb.
