Trend Watch: Parka

Even though it’s only October, the air in some places has gotten pretty chilly already. As much as I love my pea coat, I dislike the number of layers I have to wear in order to feel cozy and warm underneath. Thankfully, there’s a new option for me, you, and everyone else this winter – parkas.

I know, I know. Parkas aren’t exactly a novel concept, but usually when one thinks ‘parka,’ the image conjured up is this:

While these puffy, reflective parkas have their own practical application, they aren’t my personal favorite style out there. This year’s parkas not only keep you warm, but take up less bulk:

On the outside, the jacket looks like a regular light coat you’d throw on in spring or fall, but the inside is where the magical warmth happens–be it fleece, soft goose down, or faux fur–these slim-fit parkas are sure to keep you cozy for the incoming winter storms.
