The perfect parka

21:13 Jemma Taylor-Smith 0 Comments

With the weather getting colder, I've decided that I need (ok, really want) a parka.

This may sound pretty straightforward, but as usual I know exactly what I want, which inevitably makes the search for 'the one' extremely difficult. Please tell me it's not just me who does this..?

So, my wish list for the perfect parka is:
  • Khaki coloured - not too light though
  • A canvas type fabric - no shiny material please
  • A nice big furry hood - carrying an umbrella whilst pushing a double buggy is not easy or glamorous!
  • Not too short
  • Not too many pockets
  • Not too structured - needs to be effortlessly chic
I've been searching online to try and great a shortlist of contenders and so far I have these:

Parka no. 1 from Oasis - £88

Parka no. 2 from H&M - £59.99

Parka no. 3 from New Look - £44.99

Parka no. 4 from Next - £110

I think the Oasis one is my current favourite, although I think I'll need to check them out in the flesh to get a better idea if any of them are 'the one'. I'll let you know how I get on.
If anyone has any suggestions of parkas, which meet my wish list, please let me know.
Please note that I have posted all the above independently and have not been paid by any of the companies mentioned (although I'd happily review any of the above if they wanted me to ;-)).
