Fall/Winter 11/12 trend: the evening parka

Evening wear and parka might be as different as night and day literally, but this Fall/Winter 11/12 season, some designers had created their versions of evening parkas (the name came from Altuzarra), which means parka made luxurious enough to wear it as a formal evening coat.

Wearing a parka over a gown or a party dress doesn’t sound like a normal thing to do unless you are a red carpet rock chick, but an evening parka simply adds a bit of sporty-ness and edge to a typical formal look, and it keeps you warm during the cold season!
