4 ways to wear the perfect parka

posted on: Friday, 17 February 2017

I promise you this dear reader, Spring is just ahead. It really is. It's not far off now, just a few more weeks of somewhat grey days and cold weather snaps, and before you know it we'll all be sipping Pimms in the sun while wishing for cooler days of old. Or at least that's what I keep telling myself as I start to build up the spring summer wardrobe for the season ahead. In reality, it's become a layering game. 

And of course such wardrobing requires a key piece. This is the one item that you will wear to death  in months to come, but you can't bear to leave it until the appropriate season for showing off. Right now said piece is the Marks & Spencer Loose Fit Parka. This is my go between as we enter that awkward season where a winter coat is too warm, but no coat at all is also problematic. Enter the trusty parka. It's one of the most versatile items we have in the closet and today I'm showcasing four ways to wear. I have to be honest, three just wasn't enough... I had to go four. So enjoy a look at everything from nautical to floral, and all braved with a bare  toe on display. Can you say pre-spring frostbite?
