How to wear the Parka Jacket



The khaki military jacket, an eternal favourite of all fashionistas and this season you can give it a fresh look by simply teaming it with brilliant white. I love the simplistic yet utterly stylish examples below of how to pull off this look with the help of Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo.....

Update the military trend with this seasons embroidery trend. Love this version from Boohoo.com, it's pretty but with attitude!
