wallisparka.JPGWe're all getting impatient for the new season's collections to hit the high street, and one of my favourite trends is the parkas. Big news again this season and although satin ones are proving quite popular I don't think they're such a good idea as they will get scratched and frayed. Opt for Wallis' jacket, the softly matt fabric in a flattering pale grey will prove much longer lasting than satin.
Deftly skirting casual and dressy the jacket's crinkly texture will look great teamed with ultra thick matt opaques or some shiny leggings. Chiffon, coated cotton, and chunky knits will also bring out the best in the jacket. It's not available in the shops for a while yet but will retail at £65. The sporty stylings easily update a wardrobe, just don't wear it with jogging bottoms!
