MMM: Mod-ern Parkas

Never has there been a more miserable Summer. I don’t know that for a fact, but I can pretty much say in MY lifetime, there has never been a wetter, more miserable Summer.

So rather than gorgeous floaty dresses and flip-flops, I have been looking for the perfect Parka – to keep me dry and warm.

The stunning Burberry SS12 designs were my inspiration. Love how chic these Mod must-haves can look.

And I really loved the way Marks & Spencer styled their aubergine Indigo coat for their press shots.

Indigo coat £79, Indigo jumper £39.50, M&s Woman top £27.50, M&S Woman skirt £25, belt £15, all Marks & Spencer

Parkas are going to be a hot trend right through until Winter, so splash out now and make it work all year round.

Here are four from the high street.
