If you have as much of a distaste for cold weather as I do, a good parka is not only essential, it's a necessity especially living in the Windy City of Chicago. I love having a jacket that allows me multiple different stylings; just because it's winter doesn't mean we have to sacrifice our style right? With a removable faux fur lining and a matching navy fur-lined hood, you have enough options with the Slim Fit N-3B Parka to last an entire winter without feeling uninspired. I am wearing a size XS in the Navy/Orange option. The orange interior offers a new way to rock a color pop, especially if worn open on those warmer winter days. I love styling mine with different winter accessories, like a loose fitting infinity scarf or a cool contrasting colored beanie. It's even versatile enough to wear with a slim fitting pair of chinos and a slouchy scoop neck tee for the perfect Sunday brunch casual look that us Chicagoans love. All signs point to Alpha Industries this winter to keep you warm while not losing your cool.
First look: I love pairing this jacket with a comfy henley, my favorite pair of dark jeans and a rich leather fall boot. Swapping accessories in and out can help adjust the look for either a mild winter day or a cloudy windswept day. A beanie and a cool pair of sunnies are the perfect go-to's.
Second look: The faux fur trimmed hood on this parka can actually be removed for a more neutral look. Best on the days you want to wear the jacket open-faced, but still have the warmth of the interior navy fur. I paired the parka with a pair of slim chinos and a neutral colored tee, to make the orange color pop the star of the outfit.
Third Look: Keeping with the neutral theme of the outfit, I added an infinity scarf worn loosely to add a little warmth to the outfit and paired it with my favorite Clubmaster sunnies.
