3 reasons why you can’t live without a Parka jacket

With Mediterranean weather turning schizophrenic from a comfortable 24 degrees to  a chilly 10 degrees, we have found 3 great reasons why every city girl should own a cotton Parka jacket. That timeless Khaki colour is universally flattering to begin with , whether you are a brunette or a blonde or redhead, Khaki just brings out the best in everyone, it also commands raw edginess and respect. The second great reason to actually embrace the Parka is for its utilitarianism: pockets can be stuffed with all of the heavy daily essentials leaving you hands free. the third and main reason why we’ve even dedicated an entire post to the Parka jacket is because of it’s versatility: worn as an evening mini dress, or over a sleek outfit of leather leggings and heels to dress it down. Last but not least  layer it with multiple items for a day out running errands.

The Evening parka jacket:

Zip up your parka all the way with sleeves rolled up and cords nipped in at the waist and just flash a tiny band of gold sequined shorts for maximum effect. Wear with a leopard print micro-mini bag and a pair of studded pumps and accessorise with a tough leather cuff for a night out having drinks.

The Sleek Downtown cover-up parka:

Dress down a sharp New York silhouette of leather leggings, boxy sweatshirt and Valentino Rockstud heels or pointy black pumps with the versatile parka jacket. Keep the whole look glamorous with a felt Fedora hat and shiny mini cross body bag from Henri Bendel.

The layered Busy girl-about-town look:

Be ready for any weather change by piling on the key top of the season, a plaid shirt , leather leggings and a leather waistcoat worn over your Parka. Don’t forget to pack the all-essential backpack, we absolutely love this one by  Army Of 1.

  • One last stroll in Dubai's Citywalk this weekend, admiring the modern architecture... after 6 years in Dubai I am going to terribly miss the spirit of this city... where literally everything is possible and where you can only dream big. If only most people and countries had that same ambition, the world would be a much happier place
