Amanda requested a few picks for warm but stylish parkas so here we go:
BCBGeneration Packable Down Coat – was $240, now $159.90
Amanda specifically mentioned that she’d like to avoid looking like a Yeti, so let’s talk quilting. Down coats will be bulkier and more curve-obscuring if they have lots of space between quilted lines AND if those lines are horizontal. Shaped, slanted quilting like this will show your curves (or create some if you don’t have any yourself) and so long as you’ve got real down in there, you’ll be toasty warm. This coat is available in this gray as well as black in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. This similar style comes in four colors in sizes 1X – 3X. (The Nordstrom semi-annual clearance is on, so poke around – I also loved this shaped down coat, but it’s only left in XS – M.)
Eddie Bauer Essential Down Parka – was $159, now $109
Even better: Princess seams and smaller quilting near the waistline give this coat a great shape. It’s still slim near the hem, though, so arctic blasts won’t travel up into your privates. Real down, moisture repellent, and machine washable. Available in this red as well as black or white in sizes XS – XXL as well as petite, tall, and plus sizes. YES!
Calvin Klein Hooded Down Puffer Coat – was $275, now $127.49
with code VETS
Yeah. I’m probably buying this one myself. Because it’s a KNEE-LENGTH DOWN COAT! It’s like the unicorn of coats these days. Plus it’s sleek, shaped, has a nice high collar, and there’s nothing remotely Yeti-like about it. Available in this brown as well as a lighter brown, gray, or black in sizes XXS – XXL. Also in black in sizes 0X – 3X. (Macy’s has a few longer down parkas, including this sleek packable puffer and this funky asymmetric maxi coat.)
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for warm but stylish parkas:
- Eddie Bauer – Modern, tailored options in regular, petite, tall, and plus sizes.
- Land’s End – The LE definition of “parka” is a bit loose, but some great quilted options available. This belted tulip-hem coat is eye-catching in regular, petite, and tall sizes.
- Nordstrom – Always a winner for outerwear selection. This tightly quilted down parka is super sleek.
