A flashback to history.
The parka made history at the beginning of the 20th century, when the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen managed to reach the North Pole in a men's parka made of sealskin and fur. At the end of the Second World War, this men's winter coat made a comeback. The "USAF N-3B", a waterproof woolen jacket with a fur hood, was created to protect American soldiers from bad weather. It was in the 1960s that the parka became popular, particularly in England, thanks to the "Mods", the young trendy Londoners, who picked it up. Later, this coat was featured on fashion shows and worn by celebrities. Now the parka is one of the must-have pieces in your wardrobe.
What style of parka should I choose?
There are many different types of parkas, which differ in cut, thickness and length. The trick is to choose the parka that will enhance your figure. A drawstring at the waist will allow you to adjust the garment to your body shape.
What colour parka should I choose?
The military origins of the parka make khaki its emblematic colour. But the parka is also available in other neutral shades. Easy to combine, a dark parka can be worn over a dressy outfit. Navy blue and black are the two leading colours. In the lighter shades, we find the inevitable camel parka which is easy to wear, because everything goes well with this neutral colour. For a more assertive street look, opt for a bright red or burgundy that will bring a sporty touch to your outfit.
