Find a Parka you Love
If you are looking for a parka to bring home for good, the first thing you need to do is find the one you love. Parkas have come a long way from being the olive green hooded coat that is so synonymous with their style.
Colour and Style
You can choose a classic black parka coat that brings flexibility to your wardrobe or you can opt for something brighter with a men's red parka coat that makes a flash statement. If the fitted look isn't your style and you are seeking something with a bit more urban edge, you can also find a blend with a puffer parka coat.
The Right Fit
Pick a parka that fits your frame. Usually, men's parkas come in two different styles. You can choose a longer parka that falls between your thigh and your knee or you can choose a shorter parka style instead that just reaches over the hips. The longer parka is a solid choice for those colder spells as it covers more of the body. This style of parka may also suit more formal occasions. The shorter parka style can look good when paired with casual or street-inspired fashion choices.
The kind of parka you choose will also depend on how you live your life - guys who spend a lot of time outdoors will need a heavier duty style such as a gore-tex parka extra insulated warm hooded parkas to see you through the coldest of months.
How to Style Your Parka
The best thing about a parka is just how versatile it can be. One of the warmest winter coats you can find, the parka can be paired with both casual and more outfits depending on the occasion. We take a look at some of the ways you can style your warm hooded parkas.
Thick, snug, windproof, and waterproof - the parka is perfect for those chilly days when you want to wrap up tight and enjoy the outdoors. Pair your parka with fleece or heavy material trousers, a long-sleeved tee, and a fleece or even an extra hoody. If you have a men's black parka coat you can funk it up with a bright coloured scarf for an extra statement.
A parka may seem like a casual affair but this versatile coat can easily lend itself well to the office space or any formal event. The trick is to choose a parka that has minimalist features, a slightly tailored fit, and a neutral colour that can be paired well with chinos, a shirt, and a pair of Chelsea style boots. This is a look that can seamlessly move you from city skyscrapers to after-hours cocktail bars.
The urban environment calls for a look that balances style with a slight edge and blends elemental practicality with easy going fashion. Pair your parka with five-pocket trousers, a checkered shirt, throw over fleece or zip up and a cap. The best thing about picking your parka for the street is that you don't need to worry about being hemmed in by colour or style. From neutral moods to splashy vibes, anything goes when it comes to making your urban statement.
Ripped jeans, a white tee, a beanie hat or black skinnies and a monochrome jumper - your parka can fit any casual get up you have going on. Make sure you pick a parka that creates a pleasing silhouette. Big and baggy maybe your mood if you want to wear it with lots of layers, but consider keeping your trousers trim if you have an oversized parka up top.
Parkas are a must-have for any man's wardrobe particularly if you are seeking a coat that crosses boundaries. These coats have that down to earth style that can't be beaten, especially for those guys who like to keep one foot firmly on the ground when it comes to elegant and elemental masculine fashion.
