Look fly in fur
Pulling on a
parka will help you achieve peak casual game – trust. Its simple shape and khaki colouring marks it out as a streetwear power player, which is versatile enough to be styled up with almost any outfit. Here we’ve slotted a sweatshirt and tee underneath it, together with some drop-crotch jeans and high-top trainers – the perfect, comfortable combination for travelling in. Your next trendy minibreak to an achingly cool European capital awaits your arrival.
In the wrong hands, pairing a
parka with a suit can look more back to school than back to cool. But the whole point of layering a parka over tailoring is to break the rules a bit and surprise people. Simply put, it’s a strong look, but potentially pitfall-ridden. To ensure you nail it, there are guidelines to consider. Make sure the hem of your parka falls a few inches lower than your suit jacket and keep the shade neutral so that it falls on the side of smart and interesting rather than eccentric.
Hit the city streets like a toasty warm boss and put your parka on with some patterned knitwear for a look that combines chic geek with sharp urban woodsman this season. In terms of legwear, the logical choice is indigo skinny jeans, but a pair of scruffier ripped jeans would work just as well.
