I have been on the hunt for the perfect Parka for literally years. Every A/W I would look in all the high street stores and there was never one that was suitable for me. Not only am I very fussy when it comes to coats but I am very tall and have long arms so most of the time struggle when it comes to finding clothes that fit correctly, coats being extremely tricky to fit.
When La Redoute contacted me with the opportunity to review my choice of coat, jacket or knitwear from their site I almost bit their hand off as I was already a huge fan of the brand. I spent a good few hours browsing for a piece that really stood out to me. That's when I saw it, saw the Parka of my dreams! I could not wait for the coat to arrive and had my fingers crossed that it would fit.
When the Parka arrived I was not disappointed. The Parka has a large hood with a detachable faux fur trim. A drawstring adjustable waistline and hem so you can alter it to your body shape. Plenty of pockets which are also a great size, perfect for your mobile phone, keys and purse. The length of the coat is spot on and it also fit nicely on the arms. There is also a detachable padded faux fur lining inside which keeps you super snug and cosy.
It's not an overstatement when I say this is the best coat I have ever had. Not only is it fit for purpose (rain, snow, autumn, winter) but it is also bang on trend. Parka's are always coming back into fashion and should be a staple in every girls wardrobe.
I was sent the coat for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own.
