Needless to say, winter is already upon us – where did the year go?! And it’s definitely that time to start digging out or hunting down your new/ old winter warmers. My must have item every winter is always, first and foremost, the ultimate winter coat
which should have a multitude of features to keep me warmly satisfied and to take me right through to the next season – Depending on where you live and how cold it may be, this could be a very long time. After suffering many a winter without a sufficient winter coat, I wasted no time this year in securing myself a fashionable yet practical winter wardrobe which included transitional knitwear and also the must have winter coat which would solve all of my winter wardrobe dilemmas.
My choice for 2015 came from none other than Studio 8 London. As the sister brand to Phase Eight, Studio 8 has positioned itself as a new plus size brand created exclusively for fashion discerning women size 16 to 24 who deserve premium and stylish clothing for every occasion.
What I love about this Studio Parka is that it’s thick, full of layers, comfortable and warm without being too heavy and also perfect for nearly every style occasion – I have worn it over dresses and evening wear on a night out and have actually managed to still look fashionable but with the added pleasure of maintaining my warmth. Not an easy feat let me tell you but with this gorgeous coat, I think I found my winter BF! The features of the Faith Parka coat include a detachable quilted lining for extra warmth and a detachable collar of sumptuous faux fur. With a zip closure, drawstring and toggle waist, pockets and metal buttons.
In this look, I teamed my new parka with ripped jeans and ankle boots for a typical casual and autumnal look but the outfit possibilities with the Faith Parka Coat is endless!
How would you style the Faith Parka Coat using other items from Studio 8’s AW15 collection?
