How to Style your Parka to Up Your Fashion Game

The weather in the U.K. makes having a good waterproof jacket a necessity. These days unexpected rainfall is a daily part of life, but wearing an outdoor jacket doesn’t mean you need to compromise on your style.  The waterproof parka is a great way to protect yourself from the rain without looking like you’re heading out for the afternoon to climb Kilimanjaro.

Whether you have a walk to your yoga class, or run the washed-out high-street gauntlet to make a quick meeting over a cup of coffee, the Protected Species women waterproof parka is the best piece of outerwear for ultimate flexibility and style. Here are four ways to style the waterproof parka:

  1.     Dress it up: The Protected Species waterproof parka is all about smartness. Pair your parka with any gorgeous dress in your wardrobe, keep the zipper open, and roll up the sleeves! High performance protection which will take you from the office through to evening drinks at the bar.

  1.     Keep it classic: You can never go wrong with a pair of great-fitting jeans, white or black t-shirt and a waterproof parka. Complete the look with your favourite trainers or summer slides it’s an easy all-day style win.

  1.     Colour pop: The collection is offered in shades inspired by nature. Soft, muted colours ensure our jackets can be worn everyday coordinating perfectly with your wardrobe. Accessorize with a pop of colour by adding your favourite scarf, gloves or even a beanie.

  1.     Perfect travel look: Protected Species’ waterproof parka lets you travel in style.
