since years the green parka is a faithful companion of me and many of my looks. And because this fashion item is a current trend and a must-have piece, I thought that it would be now the right moment to write my very personal love story about the green parka.
Actually, there is one simple reason why I love green parkas. The green parka is versatile and easy to style with many different looks and outfits. I wear the green parka as a winter coat and combine it with my favorite fall and winter skirts, dresses, pants and suede boots. Or I wear the green parka as a between-seasons jacket with many spring items like silk scarfs, statement earrings and beige boots. But also in summer the green parka is my secret fashion piece. For summer I choose the green parka as some kind of lightly cotton or silk parka. During the warmer season the green parka is perfect for rainy days, for early mornings, late evenings or when I travel.
The advantage of the green parka is, that the green color is never too hard like black sometimes could be and never too bright like some shades of beige. I would say, that the green parka is made for everyone and every occasion. For every skin color, hair color, shape and alle sizes. For causal as much as for elegant and glamorous events. You always look beautiful with the green parka.
And now I take you to my personal green parka fashion journey of the last two years since I launched Alice’s diary.
The green parka as a fall and winter must-have
For the colder season I combine my green winter parka with blush and beige tones. For example my beloved beige suede boots and a blush pleated midi skirt. For fall I like to combine the green parka with bohemian inspired earrings and an ethnic skirt. Accessories like hats are great to enhance every fall outfit. Another winter must-have is my red CHANEL lip color. Tulle skirts, pleated skirts and ethnic skirts, every piece matches the green parka.
The green parka as a spring and summer must-have
For spring and summer I prefer the lightsome cotton parka. It’s a great piece for every summer dress, but also pants and skirts. In spring and summer time I often wear caps. I have a black favorite cap and this piece looks great with the green parka. But also statement earrings are my favorite must-haves besides the green parka for the perfect summer look. Some days ago I bought the new CHANEL Rouge Coco Gloss. For my spring and summer looks I chose the lip shade Bitter Orange. With a leather belt or my beloved HERMÈS silk scarf Maxi Twilly I tie the green summer parka. Also green jackets and blazers are made for the perfect summer look. Midi skirts, floral print dresses, paisley and beige pants are made for the green summer parka.
And there are so many looks left I want to style with my favorite green parkas and jackets. Therefore I am very excited where the fashion journey takes me next.
