As friends descended upon the city for fashion week festivities, the emails poured in: “What should I pack?” “Ha,” I would reply… “The biggest parka you can find, leggings, and over-the-knee boots.” It’s freezing outside, and every single New Yorker is wearing the exact same thing. I walk down the street and will pass at least five other women in the same coat. And you know why? Because it’s warm, and still chic. (The other popular option is the Canada Goose parka.) When it’s this cold.. originality goes out the window and practicality takes over. New York is basically a bunch of clones… but at least we are warm, and stylish!
So I’m sorry that today’s post is nothing groundbreaking… but it’s warm – and practical, this time of year. And this coat is the absolute best if you are in the market for something extra-warm!!
