Best Men’s Parkas For Winter 2020

By Harvey James for /SPY

It is an undeniably cool jacket style. But what exactly is a parka? Essentially, it’s a long weatherproof jacket with a hood. The hood is usually, but not always, lined with fur or faux fur. The best men’s parkas have a thick, insulating inner lining and are made of water-resistant material to keep away the winter snow. As a result, parkas can be quite bulky. Many parkas make use of drawstrings and a fishtail hem at the back of the jacket. All of these traits converge to define the modern parka jacket.

How to Wear a Parka

Thanks to its hood, its waterproof material, its many pockets, and its bulky shape, it is by nature a more casual article of clothing than an overcoat or a trench. But in northern parts of the country, parkas are absolutely indispensable when winter arrives. In recent years, parkas have had a major resurgence, and many top men’s fashion designers now produce incredible parkas. But whether you have $250 to spend or $2,500, we’re here to help you find the best men’s parkas for winter 2020.

The Best Men’s Parkas to Buy in 2020

Below, we’ve put together a broad range of styles, price points and brands to push the boundaries of what a parka can bring to your wardrobe. Keep reading to find the best men’s parkas available right now.

1. Woolrich Arctic Parka with Genuine Coyote Fur Trim

BEST OVERALL 

This is the complete definition of a traditional parka. However, this Woolrich coat executes these traditional elements luxuriously and with panache. There is the silky coyote fur trim to protect you and keep you warm in icy cold crosswinds. The Teflon-coated water-resistant shell will protect you and the effortlessly cool blue color matches the fur so well. It is the complete men’s winter parka package.

2. Canada Goose Emory Slim Fit Genuine Coyote Fur Trim Parka

BEST TO KEEP YOU WARM 

Canada Goose is having a bit of a moment. The brand has long been popular in certain areas of the country, but in the last couple of years the company has become widely known for its durable winter parkas. The Emory Slim Fit parka with genuine coyote fur lining is one of our favorite looks from the company. This line comes in a variety of stylish colors, but the blue “Northern Night” is our top pick. This slim fit, thigh-length jacket is filled with white duck down and nylon lining. It will keep your core warm without restricting your movement. This isn’t the cheapest parka available right now (it’s not even the cheapest from Canada Goose), but people don’t buy these coats because of the price. They buy them because when it comes to the best men’s parkas, Canada Goose has been producing long-lasting and reliable winter coats for a long time.

3. Herschel Supply Co. Woodland Camo Fleece Lined Fishtail Parka

BEST SIMPLE DESIGN 

This coat is a winter wardrobe essential. Despite being of humble design, it boasts angled pockets and a colorful fleece pattern lining which extends into the hood, making it a stylish, cozy jacket. The classic fishtail hem at the back comes with a drawstring, giving you the option of tying up or letting it nonchalantly swing behind you. The 60% cotton, 40% polyester exterior is water-resistant, making it ideal for those long and dreary winter months.

4. The North Face McMurdo III

BEST FOR NORTH FACE FANS

Some guys just love their North Face. Whether you prefer the jackets, sweatshirts, or outdoor gear, this brand has some pretty committed loyalists. If that sounds like you, then you’ll want to check out the McMurdo III parka from the popular outdoor brand. At $200, this is an affordable parka from a dependable clothing company, which means it will last through the end of this winter and beyond.

5. UNIQLO Blocktech Parka

BEST MEN’S PARKA UNDER $80

This parka takes the regular design and minimizes it way down to create a sleek, fitting, layer-friendly look. The surface of the coat is water-resistant and windproof, and the back wicks moisture so you stay dry no matter the conditions. If you’re looking for something a little lighter for cold and sunny days heading into spring, consider adding this look to your closet. At $80, it’s so worth it.

6. Patagonia Men’s City Storm

BEST UNDER $500

No list of the best men’s winter parkas would be complete without an entry from Patagonia. While the popular outdoors brand doesn’t match everyone’s style, the company is known for high-quality products that last for years. This year, we like the look of the men’s city storm down parka, designed to keep you warm and stylish. Perfect for winter camping and urban commuting, this sleep parka has a slimmer profile than other bulky jackets. It’s insulated with 100% recycled down and is Fair Trade Certified sewn, which also makes it a sustainable winter coat. With a price tag of $499, it’s also the best men’s winter parka under $500.

7. Prada Technical Parka

BEST DESIGNER PARKA

At the top end of the spectrum, there’s the Prada Technical Parka — the epitome of chic. Moreover, it is woven in a Prada signature technical fabric and comes with a completely separable inner quilted jacket. Put these two dynamic pieces together and you have on your hands a very well insulated, weatherproofed and smart parka jacket.

8. Kenzo Printed Logo Panelled Parka

BEST TRENDY PARKA

This is one of the trendier parkas we’ve found that doesn’t sacrifice coverage. With multi-color panels, pockets and a sleek design — you don’t need to compromise style when donning this for months on end in the winter. The drawstring hood gives you the options you need on a rainy day, all you need is your to-go coffee and you’re ready to take on whatever comes your way.

9. Canada Goose Snow Mantra Parka

BEST FOR HARSH CONDITIONS

Look, there are parkas and then there are parkas, this is the latter. When it’s cold (like, icicles forming from your breath) and you want to be as warm as possible, reach for this parka. CG made it for the purpose of commercial work, so if you see someone in snow patrol rocking one of these, well, you’ll know why. This parka has a temperature rating of 22 degrees Fahrenheit, meaning that whatever you come face to face with in the harsh winters of your day to day, you’ll be well protected.

10. Fjallraven Barents Parka

BEST FOR WET CONDITIONS

Fjallraven rules. The Swedish company regularly cranks out quality garments, from their ever-popular Kanken backpacks to outerwear of all types. This is why it comes as no surprise that their take on the men’s parka is well done. With an adjustable fuax-fur hood, adjustable cuffs and a water-resistant shell, you can feel confident that light or heavy showers won’t stand in your way. For some, a parka is used to keep warm, but if you find that you’re often battling rain and snow, this is the parka for you.

Save the Duck Minimalist Parka

BEST FOR SHORT GUYS

Parkas solve a lot of problems, to be sure. However, if you’re on the shorter side of the height spectrum, the average parka will look more like a dress for you. And that, well, that can sort of suck. If you want to stay warm but also stay on style (without looking like you borrowed your dad’s coat), opt for this minimalist parka from Save the Duck. Not only is it warm and water-resistant, but it won’t reach your ankles. What’s more, it’s straightforward and streamlined. Forget the fur or faux fur. This is a city-dwelling parka and one that will keep you warm and dry in cold and wet conditions.

12. Howler Brothers Spellbinder Parka

BEST QUILTED

The standard parka (as you’ve likely noticed by now) has a tougher outter shell and is rather streamlined. If you want that quilted look in your parka, though, Howler Brothers make a great option. Though still offering protection from the cold and damp, this men’s parka injects a built more style. Not only are the shoulders reinforced to help keep you extra warm where you need it, but the entire body utilizes 100 gram PrimaLoft Gold insulation to make sure you are extra cozy, even if this parka doesn’t go below the belt.

Also, we appreciate the color options. While blue, black and red are classic colors, sometimes you want something a bit different. If you fall into that category, go ahead and pick this parka up in Hideout Green (pictured below) or Oatmeal/Khaki.

13. Everlane The ReNew Long Parka

BEST FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

Leave it to Everlane to do more with their men’s parka than just keep you warm. While all of these coats on this list will last a lifetime with proper care, Everlane goes a step further by building their ReNew Parka with 100% recycled polyester. After all, if you can stay cozy while also doing right by the planet, why wouldn’t you, right? Especially when going green is so affordable, it almost seems like a no-brainer.

Though it’s not recommended to rock this parka when temperatures go below 0, for most of us, that’s totally fine. A clean-looking coat, this parka will do you right during most winter days and nights.

OK guys. Get one before the “Hawk” blows cold and snow upon your body!

Jewelry Sizing Guide

The number one problem with online jewelry dealers is often size. One size never fits all. The world is composed of many different shapes and contours and finding the right look for you is all about perspective. SilverTribe.com will always accommodate the needs of our guests. We understand the frustration of other sites listing their details, but not how they’ll look on you. That’s why we decided to provide you with some useful visuals. All of our pieces have jewelry measurements (length and width) information listed. Once you find something you really love just refer to the images and size charts below to make sure they’ll give you the look you want. With these tools, you’ll know how far a necklace will drape down, if your bracelet will be too loose or too tight, and much more. Planning the perfect ensemble is getting all about getting down to the fine details. How can you pick a necklace to go with your dress without knowing how far the pendant comes down? The SilverTribe Jewelry Measurements page gives you all the information needed to find the jewelry that fits the way you need to complete your ideal ensemble.

Necklace Jewelry Measurements

It can be difficult shopping for necklaces when you don’t understand how the different sizes will look on you. We think it’s easier to visualize how various necklace lengths will rest on your neck and chest. Keep in mind that these sizes are the average sizes, and can vary depending on your body type.

16 inches: Choker length

17-19 inches: At the collarbone

20 inches: A few inches below the collarbone

22 inches: At or above the neckline

24 inches: Below the neckline

Bracelet Measurements

SilverTribe uses the inner circumference and the opening of a cuff bracelet to get the final measurement. If the bracelet has an opening, you’ll just add that length to the inner circumference (displayed in the bracelet image chart) to find the perfect fit for you.It’s important to remember that some bracelets, like cuff bracelets, are not adjustable. Trying to bend these bracelets so they fit could result in damaging the bracelet or losing stones.Instead, you can use these charts to help you use our system and find the jewelry measurements that will be a perfect fit. For example, if the inner bracelet circumference measures approximately 5-1/4″, you would add that to the 1-1/8″ opening.The simple additions (5-1/4 + 1-1/8) give you a 6-3/8 wrist size.As a helpful hint, you can take a piece of string and wrap it around your wrist, then measure the length of the string with a ruler or a fabric ruler to find your measurement. Many jewelers say a quarter inch above or below will most likely still fit, it all just depends in your preference for tight or loose fitting jewelry.

Link Bracelet Measurements

We measure the length of the link bracelets a bit differently depending on what type of clasp it has. In the item listing, it will describe the number of links in the bracelet and how long each link is.

For Lobster clasp bracelets, we measure the length of the bracelet and subtract 1/8″ from the full length.

Toggle bar and clasp bracelets, we measure the length of the bracelet and subtract 1/8″ from the full length.

For Box clasp bracelets, we measure from the start of one box clasp to the right before the second clasp starts.

Here’s where the “no white after Labor Day” rule came from

Slide 4 of 16: Ever wonder why you’re not supposed to wear white after Labor Day? The tradition goes back to the end of the Civil War, when society was ruled by the wealthy wives of old-money elites. As more new-money millionaires entered society, the jealous old regime invented a whole suite of arbitrary fashion rules that only those in the in-crowd would know. Anyone who showed up to an autumn dinner party in a white dress, for example, would be instantly outed as a nouveau riche newbie. That tradition of not wearing white past summer has since trickled down through fashion magazines and into mainstream culture… even for those of us whose ideal dinner party garb is sweatpants. The good news is, most fashion experts agree that there's no need to follow this elitist rule today.

Ever wonder why you’re not supposed to wear white after Labor Day? The tradition goes back to the end of the Civil War, when society was ruled by the wealthy wives of old-money elites. As more new-money millionaires entered society, the jealous old regime invented a whole suite of arbitrary fashion rules that only those in the in-crowd would know. Anyone who showed up to an autumn dinner party in a white dress, for example, would be instantly outed as a nouveau riche newbie. That tradition of not wearing white past summer has since trickled down through fashion magazines and into mainstream culture… even for those of us whose ideal dinner party garb is sweatpants. The good news is, most fashion experts agree that there’s no need to follow this elitist rule today.

Thanks to Brandon Specktor, Claire Nowak of Reader’s Digest for that bit of fashion history.

Is Nail Polish the New Lipstick? It’s Kind of Looking That Way . . .

Slide 1 of 6: BUY NOW$28There's a theory called the "lipstick index" or "lipstick effect," which states that in a time of economic crisis, people will cut back on expensive, big-ticket luxury items but still spend money on small indulgences, like lipstick. This theory dates all the way back to the 20th century and the Great Depression, but we've seen it play out many different times in history. For example, in 2008 after the big stock market crash, L'Oréal reported a 5.3 percent growth in sales. The idea is that small, feel-good items like a lip product can help boost spirits, therefore, people still think they're worth spending money on.  A crisis like the coronavirus pandemic may have tested this lipstick-effect theory once more, but there's one problem: face masks. Because these cover the lower part of your face and cause makeup products to smear and transfer, it's understandable if people aren't too keen on buying a new lipstick during a time like this. It's just not practical.  But if you take the theory at face value and less literally, the lipstick effect could be applied to any makeup product. During a time when lipstick doesn't make the most sense, people might look for a small comfort to enjoy in its place - and nail polish might just be that item. With bold lips on the back burner, there's room for another trend to move into its place. Sure, bright statement eyeliner is having a moment, but you can't deny that trend takes a level of skill that not everyone possesses (including myself, really). A fresh manicure, on the other hand, is something that a majority of people can get behind. COVID-19 has been tough on the beauty industry already, and it's almost as if brands, too, have predicted that the usual lipstick release may not have the same impact. As such, many have adjusted their strategy accordingly to feature new nail-polish collections instead. Is it in the hopes that fun and exciting nail-polish colors can help fill that lipstick-size hole in our beauty routines and act as a substitute luxury item in a time of crisis? Probably. Of course, lipstick will always have its place in the spotlight, but for now, embrace the nail-polish trend. This is the perfect time to give your bold lip a break and let your manicure shine with the best new nail colors, ahead.

“Black Espresso” is Fall’s Moodiest Hair-Color Trend

Slide 1 of 8: I don't consider myself much of a foodie, but I have to admit that this fall's biggest hair-color predictions - some of which boast names like "Champagne pop" and "chocolate almond" - sound nothing short of delicious. "Espresso black," for example, is another rising hair-color trend that gets its name from a beloved beverage, only this one is just moody enough to fit your fall aesthetic. As the name suggests, the color is a very dark brown that almost looks black, and you can see the chocolate-y tones better under sunlight. According to Karissa Schaudt, a colorist at Maxine Salon, if you're planning on making a dark-hair shift at some point, there'll be no better time to do it than in the next few months.  "It's smart to transition into this dramatic color during the cooler months to prevent fading due to sun exposure." "It's smart to transition into this dramatic color during the cooler months to prevent fading due to sun exposure," she previously told POPSUGAR. Colorist Rex Jimieson agreed, and also said that achieving the hue is as simple as adding "black to your medium or dark-brown base color with foils or balayage rather than going completely solid. Ask for a demipermanent so you can change it down the road and it will be super shiny." If you think "black espresso" is the moody fall hair color for you, read ahead to check out our favorite takes on the trend.

“Black Espresso” is Fall’s Moodiest Hair-Color Trend, and We’re So Into It

5 Easy Outfit Formulas to Try This Week

Getting into a style rut is easy—and it’s even easier when we’re used to having worn the same loungewear for the past four months straight.

When you’re getting dressed for, you know, your daily walk or time spent on your balcony, the easiest way to not get overwhelmed—and to avoid the ‘I have nothing to wear!’ conundrum—is to think of outfits as formulas. They can be as simple as jeans + T-shirt + sneakers, but thinking of your pieces as individual items that can work together rather than attempting to process the entirety of your closet at once can make getting dressed as easy as 1 + 1 = 2. 

These are some of the tried-and-true formulas we’re following at the moment—and none of them have failed us yet. 

1. One-shoulder tank + high-rise jean shorts + cat-eye sunglasses + sneakers

shorts / tank / shoes / sunglasses

2. Linen dress + slide sandals + straw bag

5 New Athleisure Brands You Should Be Adding to Your Rotation

Article by Samantha Leal for Well + Good

Athleisure has come a long, long way. From workout clothes to lounging to now even business-meets-athleisure brands, the go-to outfit for many (especially in COVID-19 times) probably includes at least one piece of athleisure. And while the category expands, it can be hard to keep up with all of them. (Plus, are they even good?) You’ve got this. Or rather, we have. Here are five newer athleisure brands you should be adding to cart.

Athleisure has come a long, long way. From workout clothes to lounging to now even business-meets-athleisure brands, the go-to outfit for many (especially in COVID-19 times) probably includes at least one piece of athleisure. And while the category expands, it can be hard to keep up with all of them. (Plus, are they even good?) You’ve got this. Or rather, we have. Here are five newer athleisure brands you should be adding to cart.

OFFLINE by Aerie

Aerie just launched a new athleisure line called OFFLINE made for movement and comfort (aka working out or ordering takeout from your couch). Available online and with two retail store locations to come, these leggings, tanks, sports bras, and more are all super soft without being sloppy. Try the Real Me legging ($40 – $45) as a go-to for every day or the Goals legging ($50) to lift the booty and have you feeling (and looking) good.

Solely Fit

athleisure brands solely fit

Founded by ABC News reporter Stefania Okolie, this fitness apparel line launched right in the middle of COVID, and has everything to make your body stand out. As “elevated athleisure” the shapes and sillhouettes of this line are super strong and flattering for any body. The favorite: The Moremi Biker Shorts ($54).

Enavant Active (ENVT)

athleisure brands enavant

Chic. Chic. Chic. I typically shy away from using that word, but this athleisure brand lives up to it. From the French phrase “en avant,” meaning “to move forward” this brand is committed to sourcing the highest standards of technical materials, which is why it spent two years perfecting its trademark fabric Enavance™. Spun from luxury Italian fibers, Enavance™ boasts revolutionary performance while feeling incredible against the body. As a premium line, the pricing can seem high, but as someone who has lived in her sets for days at a time (I mean, what? Who? Not me…) I can say they’re so comfortable and flattering. My favorite set? The Malibu Bra Top ($88) with the Sunset Leggings ($89).

WVVY

Wellness influencer Britney Vest joined forces with HSN to launch her own athleisure brand this summer called WVVY, with sizing up to 3X and everything under $100. (Size inclusive and budget-friendly? Yes, please.) The line was inspired by Britney’s love for California and the ocean, and features leggings, sports bras, biker shorts, jogger pants, and t-shirts. Try the cropped hoodie ($47) paired with the lace-up legging ($48).

Mind Body Love

The new workout collection from the line “Peace Love World,” by Alina Villasante is full of liveable styles in mostly black and white. It launched with QVC in June, and consists of eight key pieces for everyday workouts and post-workout style. Sizes go up to 3X, and feature designs in petite, regular, and tall. Some standouts? The performance tank ($38) with a great square neck and the biker shorts ($51) with secret pocket.

The Tie-Dye Maxi Dress-Just in Time for Summer Humidity

Article by Eden Lichterman for InStyle.com

We all have that one item in our closets that we always want to wear no matter how many other choices we have lying around. Maybe it fits just right, or maybe it’s made from a buttery-soft material that feels like pajamas. For over 2,000 Amazon shoppers, this flowy tie-dye maxi dress is that wardrobe favorite. It’s a comfy-yet-cute staple that will bring out your inner boho, and it will keep you cool as summer temperatures peak. Its breezy silhouette is basically built for humid heat.© Courtesy/Getty Images Its breezy silhouette is basically built for humid heat.

With 23 different pattern options, each shopper can find a tie-dye print that speaks to them for no more than $30. The dress ranges in size from XS to XL, and it’s made of a stretchy rayon and spandex blend. It features two side slits that come to the knee, convenient pockets, a deep v-neck, and cuffed short sleeves. You can wear the dress as it comes for a looser fit, add a belt to accentuate your waist, or even tie the bottom in a knot to show off some leg. a person wearing a dress: Courtesy© Provided by Instyle Courtesy

As temperatures reach the 90s and beyond in many areas of the country, it’s important to have a sundress that’s light and flowy but doesn’t show anything you don’t want to show. This tie-dye maxi does the trick: “Great summer lounge dress!” a reviewer wrote. “It’s flattering and comfortable for all body types. Nice material — it’s thin but not see through.” Another mentioned how the fabric “glides over the skin without clinging.” (That person now owns this dress in at least two different styles.)

While this dress is designed for the thick of summer, it’ll also work well into the fall: You can wear it now with flips-flops and a sun hat, and in a few months, throw the dress on with a jean jacket and boots. As one reviewer says, it’s“the perfect boho number that can be taken through the seasons!”

Over the weekend, Kate Middleton celebrated the National Health Service’s 72nd birthday in major style. For the occasion, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn for afternoon tea wearing matching blue looks. Of course their coordinating outfits made our hearts skip a beat, but it was Kate’s chic dress choice that caught our eye right off the bat.

Kate’s polished look consisted of navy blue pumps, a pair of drop statement earrings, and a $572 blue floral-print midi-length shirtdress from Beulah London (a brand that Kate has been a longtime fan of). Complete with a contrasting white collar and cuffs, epaulettes, and a tie waist, Kate’s dress is equal parts stylish and sophisticated. We especially love the trendy voluminous sleeves and flattering flared skirt silhouette.
