I've wanted/needed a new winter coat for a while now and what other option is there than a parka, really? Lots, I know, but I've really been loving the look of them lately! It's such a staple winter warmer and I love the classic olive green colour.

I looked all over at different coats before settling on this one from New Look. I got it in the sale for only £24.99 (what a bargain!) and I think my favourite bit is the contrasting of the faux leather, black sleeves. I think it just adds a little something to it and stops it from being too simple in a way? I also saw one in Primark with faux leather panelling down the front and black fur trim for the hood, which would be a great alternative!

Often with coats I find the hoods to be too small, but this one is oversized and with the black fur lining and the added fur trim (both faux, obviously) it makes for a super cosy time! I think the classic olive green colour works great with an all black outfit.

Are you a fan of a winter parka?
