Parkas x


(photo tumblr)

If I had to chose one item of clothing to represent modern London, it wouldn’t be the timeless belted Burberry Mac ..but the utilitarian street-chic Parka..





And it’s the one item of clothing you don’t have to spend a fortune on..because the truth of it is that the High Street does it far better than the designers who can’t help trying to guild the lilly when the appeal is the simplicity of three..




Army green..



Big sheepskin collar..


And a pull tie at the bottom..not to use..but just because it’s right.

Most of these are from ASOS who are having a truly GREAT parka sale – I can’t think of a more perfect item to be in a sale at this time of year..

    Agreed Kate! While I was working, the ubiquitous trench was de rigueur. But now in retirement, I find the easy to wear parka much more in keeping with my new lifestyle and “fixed” income.
