Author- Marissa Whittle

If there is one staple you buy this season it’s the Parka. The outerwear piece seen on all our favourite style icons, including, Jessica Alba, Kate Bosworth and Kate Moss. We’ve handpicked a few inspirations for your oh-so snug and stylish look.

Jessica Alba Mint Velvet

The Honest Look

The ultimate style multi-tasker, Miss Alba, looks effortlessly chic whilst running a multi-billion-dollar company, raising two kids (with a third on the way) and filming action packed films. Here whilst hopping between business meetings, Jessica wears a black fur lined Parka paired with skinny dark denim, white trainers and a cross body bag – add a touch of spunk with our star cuff earrings.
