Which: Lightweight Parka

      (1) UO £75    (2) Topshop  £65    (3) New Look  £44.99   (4) Topshop £48    (5) UO £55
(UO = Urban Outfitters)
It seems that every A/W season, the khaki army style parka survives to make the on trend list.
This season however, the parka has a new edge when slotted into the current grunge trend. A/W 12 has decided to embellish the latest parkas with numerous pockets as seen at (1), loaded with leather- (2) and (3), covered in camo (4) and (5) as well as being decorated in jewels at Zara, more zips than you could imagine at Topshop and given that instant desirable cosy feel by the use of Sherpa at UO (5).

My favourite: Has to be the combined effect of leather with the khaki, I like the way the black leather is transformed into something less biker (which I normally avoid as I find it too harsh) and also makes the parka a bit less relaxed so it could potentially be worn out to dinner in the cold English weather! I predict that many purchases will be made on parkas this season, so opting for this version of the parka could make you stand out from the crowd!
