OOTD: The Parka Jacket

USC Khaki Firetrap Polly Parka on Rock On Holly Fashion Blog

In my opinion, a khaki parka is a must-have item for any Winter wardrobe. Especially if you're from Manchester.
Yes, once reserved for the likes of Oasis and their "Mad Fer It" crew, the parka is actually a long standing, fashionable yet practical item. This one from USC doesn't disappoint!

Originally £120, the Polly Parka is a total bargain for any fashionista looking to add some urban style to their wardrobe. I fully admit that I have a coat obsession, but despite the embarrassingly large collection of coats in my wardrobe, I have worn this particular jacket loads this Winter!! Like I said, it's totally practical and perfect for throwing on over a casual outfit. The leather sleeves and fur hood add a touch of style to this simple look. Best bit? It's super warm as there's a fur lining on the inside of the jacket just on your back... Ooooh!

 I teamed my jacket with my trusty Topshop Mom jeans (again!!) and this cosy Boohoo jumper that I picked up for my trip to Iceland (I got size Medium). To add a splash of colour, I couldn't resist adding this Miss Pom Pom matching hat and scarf!! I can't tell you how much I'm loving this right now!! I picked both up from a tiny boutique in Winchester called Consortium, but I'd definitely recommend checking out their site for some other fun colours and styles.
