It comes as no surprise that I adore clashing styles and experimenting with looks and clothing pieces that apparently don’t work together. So my 2012/2013 Fashion Resolution will be to just do it and try everything as long as it makes a style statement and looks cool & urban. For sometime now the parkas have been a huge fall & winter street trend, and thanks to some designers, such as Altuzarra for instance, this trend continues to be great. It never left the hot season in the first place. Remember those tiny, thin military green parka jackets? They did come in handy on some crispy cool evenings or mornings when heading out, and they continue to resist with stubbornness throughout the cold season of 2012/2013.

Longer or shorter hems, in blues, blacks, browns or greens, with or without the fur trimmings  – parkas give the I-so-don-t-care-how-I-look-vibe. A bit like Kate Moss or any model on their day off. My personal favorites are the military parkas (well, with military being a trend in itself, it was bound to hit the parkas too, right?in washed out green, fur trimmings & slightly oversized. Fantastic attire for work or going out, the parka can be thrown over silk blouses, T-shirts, jumpers, posh tops or grunge/vintage shirts. No fashion rule applies to this new It-Coat of 2012/2013 Winter Autumn so you’ll find it can give edge to a rather elegant or office attire outfit (shift dress, tights, boots, heels, flats, girly & feminine accessories). You can make it fun on a sexy night out: heels, skirts, shorts, tops of all cuts and designs. Personally I love how it looks with heels and grunge bootsleggings or skinny jeans, comfy cool jumpers or mini skirts. Of course I’d always throw a pile of jewelry, as nothing is too much for me in this area, and there you have it – a winter fashion that keeps us warm and looks fabulous.

From the streets to the celebrities, it’s a look bound to be big. The truth is they’ve big quite common for a while now, I mean I can still picture Mr. Liam Gallagher rocking the stage in his long green parka while singing with Oasis, back in the day. Hmm, I wonder if we could hold the rock-stars responsible for this fashion come-back? Will we give the parka a fashion-for-the-winter-boost or will we tire of it pretty soon?
