When you live in Canada, a parka is a must, and every few years, I go out and buy myself a new one. They’re puffy, they warm, but I’ve never really thought of them as fashion-forward or anywhere near sexy until this year. Have a look at my sleek Mackage parka!
I wasn’t looking for a coat when this luxurious-looking parka caught my eye. This style is called Katalina, and it’s by Mackage.
At first, I was drawn to the stunning color that was like no other I had ever seen in a puffy jacket. In the past, I’ve had navy, black, and brown parkas, but this shade was so rich and regal-looking that it popped off the rack.
Then there’s the style. This beautiful parka is nice and long. It covers my bottom, which I need in January/February when it’s freezing and windy out!
It’s quilted like some of the more high-end parka brands, but I’ve never seen a parka as super sleek and fitted as this. When I first tried it on, it felt a little weird to have what is typically a bulky kind of coat feeling as snug as a pair of skinny jeans, but when I looked in the mirror, I was in love.
No wonder stars like Halle Berry, the Kardashians, and other Hollywood Elite wear Mackage parkas. Talk about luxurious, fashion-forward, and slimming. This coat gives me curves and more. Plus, I love the leather trim on the front coat zipper and pockets. It’s that kind of lovely detail that makes this coat so unique.
Of course, the other big selling point about this jacket is the incredible fur-trimmed hood. It’s not your average floppy hood. Somehow they have constructed this hood to stand up a little on its own, so it frames your face even when lying flat. It’s like you have this gorgeous ring of fur around your face, like a picture frame. It’s quite dramatic and oh-so chic.
I’m crazy about my cute parka. It feels so modern, hip, and a little bit sexy too. And it was exciting to find out that this is a Canadian brand!
Mackage has a lot of beautiful styles and colors to choose from that will not only keep you cozy but will leave you feeling like a runway model too! Check out my jacket and a few more of my favorite Mackage coats here. I’ve linked the boots too!
