Pretty in Parka
Heavy duty outerwear that can battle the elements and look elegant simultaneously is practically unheard of. Perennially on the hunt for figure-flattering pieces that ward off cold and—the tallest of requests—looks classily sexy, we were tickled with delight when a fellow eco-maven turned us on to TNA’s line of sustainable hemp and recycled wool parkas (from $245.00). That’s right: sexy parkas.
Incredibly tailored and perfectly cut, these earth-friendly, water-resistant and recycled fibre pieces provide superb insulation for those living in cold climes. Feminine detailing cinches in waists, ensuring that you won’t drown under blanket-like layers though you’ll certainly stay toasty and warm underneath. Don’t fret about the fur trim on these babies, either: it’s all faux. There’s also a depth and earthiness to their color finishes, a reflection of the conscious thought behind their material sourcing.
Sleek and sporty? You may want to opt for the St. Moritz, while those with a more classic sense of style can don the Verbier. Ski bunnies may like the Aspen, on-the-go city girls the Ronne. There’s a wide range of comely coats to suit your personal taste—so chic they’ll actually have you wishing for snow days.
