Winter's parka wish list

The ubiquitous outdoor staple is back on trend

Winter's parka wish list

No longer just for the likes of Liam Gallagher, the iconic parka is making a big comeback this season. From brightly coloured and fur-lined to padded and waxed, there are a multitude of the classic all-weather coats to choose from. ShortList's style director, Adrian Clark, has trawled the high street for the best on offer - and shows us how to complete the look.
