Luxe parka is a functional and chic alternative to predictable Fall coat styles. It works as a trendy update to the classic cold-weather parka which some of us might have hated when we were kids. Looks like this Fall every fashionista having prejudices to parkas needs to change their mind because the styles designers suggest will really apply to most of us.

Luxe parka in Fall 2011 Winter 2012 fashion shows: Alutuzarra, , , ,

Talking about designers, the most luxurious parkas we have seen on Fall 2014 runways were presented by: Diesel, KaufmanFranco and Richard Nicoll. The trend was prominent 3 years ago back in Fall 2011 when Joseph Alutuzarra and Vera Wang mastered the art of mixing military inspiration with luxury. This resulted in a luxe parka trimmed with fox. Also, Jean Paul Gaultier and Emma Hill (Mulberry) followed the trend by adding a touch of luxe to their utilitarian separates (love the opulent fur collar and cuffs!).

Anything special? Not really. So what actually makes Fall parkas so luxurious? Slim silhouette and trendy fit especially when popped atop a feminine design like a slinky gown (Mulberry), a pencil skirt (), or a pair of fancy pants (Alexander Wang). Fashion critics are right: this season grunge meets glam!

Don’t worry, choosing parkas over traditional womens coats isn’t about turning your coat at all. It’s about the neverending pursuit of looking fashionable off the runway!

Taking it all to consideration, luxe parka is a very easy trend to follow. All you need to do is to find a suitable luxe parka, featuring a fancy autumnal shade and a plush accent especially a fur trim collar. Look for a parka with warm lining (for example fleece) that will allow you to withstand the most blustery of Fall and Winter days. Dot the I’s and cross the T’s – complete the look with something sexy so as not to look too casual. The editor’s picks should help you:
