Trends, Trends, Trends!
We have compiled some of the latest parka trends for you, fresh from the runway! The following are the must-haves of the season:
- In spring and summer, pastel shades work wonders, especially for women's parka coats. Earth colours such as beige or brown are just as trendy. These are often combined with funky hoods with coloured faux fur trims and can look super stylish with sexy sequined dresses.
- In autumn & winter , the military look takes over. With their trendy olive colour, epaulettes, belted waist & flap pockets, they are absolute eye catchers! If it's not too cold, you can always wear them with the front open.
How to wash a parka, especially the fur trim hoods?
The fur trim is usually buttoned on the hood or the hood on the coat. So you can either take the fur trim off or the entire hood off, put in a protective washing bag and wash it in the washing machine. Ideally you should be selecting the 'handwash' programme on your machine if there is one. If the hood/fur trim is not removable, you will have to wash the parka jacket or coat at a maximum of 30°C. Read the care instructions on the tag carefully before you wash your parka.
After washing you can brush the fur trim carefully with a comb to smoothen out any knots there may be. Then hang it on a drying rack or the jacket on a hanger. When it is dry, you can brush the fur again carefully.
If you own a parka jacket for women with real fur, professional dry cleaning is recommended.
How to choose a parka that fits perfectly?
You need to consider a few rules when you're selecting specific types of women's parka coats . Our style guide will tell you more about them:
- Rule 1: The length
Hip-length or short parkas suit every type of figure, whereas the long ones up to the knees are more suitable for taller women.
- Rule 2: The colour
Dark colours such as black parkas, navy parkas or green ones can be combined very well. Vibrant colours such as bronze, yellow or red can add upbeat accents & brighten things up especially during a cold, grey winter.
- Rule 3: The fit
These fashionable coats are usually loose and you have enough freedom of movement in them. If you want a slim fit coat, then you should be opting for a trench coat. But if you're looking to add a feminine touch to your casual style, then go for a parka with drawstrings at the waist, for a nice tailored fit.
- Rule 4: Not only for the winter
Parkas with a fur trim on the hood and collar not only look very warm, they actually are. However, the coats are not meant to be worn exclusively in the winter or during transitional weather. There are lightweight versions that are perfect for cool summer evenings or stormy weather. They are comfortable, light and look great!
- Rule 5: One model - different styles
Wide or loose fit pants are not the ideal choice when it comes to parkas. There are better teamed with slim fit chinos, skinny jeans or other fitted trousers. A parka is a practical as well as stylish piece of clothing. It can also be combined with knee length dresses. Wear them with tapered shoes or boots and create an outfit that is both casual and elegant. Style statements such as these are extremely modern and always look interesting. So is the combination with ankle boots, leggings and a shirts.
The variety of colours and styles makes the trendy anoraks wearable on various occasions & in different styles. There are even lightweight & waterproof rain parkas for women that are ideal for hiking or camping trips because of their water resistance, breathable material and light weight. So there is a parka jacket for every lady that you can find at a great price on Lesara.
