Hi guys, today I am going to show you how to style denim jeans with oversized items such as your boyfriend’s parka to create a super stylish look. I never thought I’d be saying to wear men’s clothing on my blog. As many of you know, I am extremely girly and very rarely wear flats, jeans or anything dressed down for that matter. So the fact that I am saying you can wear a men’s parka is really something new to me!
When my boyfriend came over to my house one day wearing this Hollister parka I knew I had to steal it from him! It’s extremely warm and cosy. The green shade just goes with anything. So the other day when he forgot it and left it at my house (lucky me) I thought this is my opportunity to borrow it for the day!
I wanted to create a dressed-down look perfect for going to the park or for a day trip. I’ve chosen to wear denim jeans from Dorothy Perkins and paired it with my beautiful mustard jumper from Cos Stores. I really love the colour combo of the dark denim and the mustard.
I wanted to be comfy for my trip to the park so I put on my navy blue chunky sole shoes from Zara. I added my Topshop backpack so that I could take a packed lunch and eat at the park!
Why Denim Jeans?
As many of you know, I like to research new UK fashion brands and create inspired looks. One day I found cool denim jeans from Citizents of Humanity UK and realized I never wear jeans! That was a time to step outside my comfort zone and style jeans. I was inspired to create a casual outfit that I could wear to the park or a day trip. Something that was still stylish, but that could handle whatever the weather came my way. That is why I chose darker colours. Just in case the weather was bad.
What else could I style a men parka with?
I actually feel that this is probably one of the only looks I would pair this parka with as I don’t think that a skirt or dress would go that well. You may want to pair it with some winter boots instead of the flat shoes to make it extremely weather proof. Why not try a pair of Ugg Boots or Moon Boots?
