My surprising volte-face: the Parka

Up until just yesterday afternoon if you said ‘parka’ to me I would have replied ‘never, no way!’ because I never was into any kind of sports wear and I never used to even entertain owning a parka – the very idea! Until yesterday when I saw this post on Garance Dore who’s always been a fan, in fact she has it listed on her Functional and Fabulous List

I was blown away with this image of how differently you can wear one! So guess what, I am going to try to find one for myself and wear it belted too. It’s the prefect alternative to my beloved trench coats for the Spring and Autumn to come.
