How to Wear a Massive Parka and Look Cool

Welcome back to Editor's Picks, a Friday series profiling the buys our editors are obsessed with. This week, Racked fashion editor at large Rajni is sharing the eye-catching (and ultra-warm) parka she's invested in for winter.

"I chose the Canada Goose Expedition Parka for obvious reasons: It’s getting cold outside and I need something to keep me warm. But its bright red color really attracted me to it. I see a lot of winter coats that will keep me warm, but aren’t stylish. I would wear this with any outfit, from an evening dress (yes, I truly would) to my everyday uniform of jeans and a tee, to a ski bunny outfit. This one, with its look-at-me color and many pockets, reminds me of a styled-out military coat. I’m also one that likes to buy things oversized, so instead of getting my true size, which is a small, I go for a medium. I have a thing (or a problem) where I like to swim in my coats. I also have a thing (call it a problem if you will) where I like to dress very boyish to offset my crop tops or high-waisted jeans. This does the trick."
