How to fashionably wear a parka? That’s been a question on my mind for quite some time now. Everyone seems to wear them in a very sporty fashion with sneakers, a pair of jeans, and any old t-shirt. And although that’s pretty cool, it just isn’t my personal style. I always like to dress things up a little more.
To start off, when I went searching for my very first parka to own I promised myself not to get one in olive green. Instead I wanted it to be more colorful. A color that I could wear from summer to spring. After all a parka is a pretty light jacket so I can use it during warmer months. I was really happy to have found a very pretty sky blue parka. I like to put colorful pieces next to a blank canvas in order to make them stand out. So like always I brought out my favorite pair of white jeans to get the job done. Lately I’ve been wearing my white bodysuit a lot too, so I figured it was perfect for today’s look as well. However, when I looked at myself in the mirror I still felt that the outfit looked flat. So I tied a printed scarf to my neck and got out my silver shoes. I finished off with a great pair of black Ray-Ban’s and a bright pink pout.
In the end I think I my parka look turned out exactly how I wanted it to, less casual, and more fashionable.
