New York Fashion Week AW 2012/2013...Bette

Dutch model Bette Franke (DNA), after Preen, NYC, February 2012.

Well, would you look at that....Another parka. Clearly I have a thing at the moment for parkas!

Recreate Bette's look (kind of):

Turtleneck sweater: T by Alexander Wang marled boxy sweater,  Juicy Couture chunky cable turtleneck sweater,  Duffy knitted turtleneck sweater, Vince textured honeycomb turtleneck, Vila roll neck knit slouchy sweater, or Topshop knitted tweedy roll jumper

Parka: Three Floor Field Trip parka, Topshop fur lined parka, or Hearts and Bows parka with fur trim

Black skinny jeans: Rag & Bone/JEAN high rise skinny jeans, 7 For All Mankind The skinny jeans, or Mother The Looker skinny jeans

Alexander Wang Rocco duffel


  1. fabulous parka!


  2. If only I were tall enough to pull off a parka. Bette looks fabulous. Can't imagine taking a parka to a tailor, but if you know of a style that could work on more petite figures, do share!

  3. @Jane - Tamu is quite petite and she looks great in an oversized parka. You are probably best with a slightly cropped version though?

    1. Vanessa, maybe the key to rocking an oversized parka is two parts proper silhouette and one part attitude? I am lacking in the latter. Must work on that. I do love this look though. So practical and fun!

    2. @Jane - ha ha! Yep, you got it! I think it is definitely down to attitude as well :))
