Gone are the days of anoraks being limited to the artic tundra. Designers have begun to incorporate more urban versions of my new favorite classic into their collections and I promise – you will become immediately hooked if you try them.
For the purposes of full disclosure, I spent six months coveting a hunter green APC anorak that I had seen at their preview in April and, now that I own it, I have no idea how I ever lived without one. I’m a total anorak-convert!
Anoraks are not only the warmest coat that you will ever own, but they are truly the winter version of the classic trench – you can wear it with everything and it will become your cold weather wardrobe staple.
I love the plaid lining on this McQ coat. Coming from someone who rarely closes her coat, no matter how cold, I love the extra detail that sets this anorak apart from the rest. Regardless of the silhouette, there’s something a little bit more fun about a coat with an unexpected edge.
Speaking of the unexpected detail, this two-tone design of my favorite No. 21 anorak is awesome. Both fabrics are in the same color-family, so it’s not overwhelming, but the colorblock wool design makes this classic a little more dressed up than the others.
