I'm not even going to lie to you, it is getting cold out there! I was in desperate need of some winter outerwear, so when the lovely people at JD Williams got in contact with me to review some items from their womens winter coats ,I jumped at the chance.
The first coat I chose was this camouflage cotton parka. The coat is not my usual style. Especially as it is camo print, which is everywhere this season. However, I was instantly drawn to it whilst browsing the site.
As you can see from my photo, it has a beautiful rich dark blue faux fur trim hood. It is soo soft, not itchy or rough at all, I feel so cosy when I put it up. If the fur trim is not your thing, it is easily detachable. One coat – two looks!
The parka has generously sized pockets, I can fit my Samsung Galaxy note, purse, keys, a few of Darcy's bit and bobs and still have room. It also has waist tighteners, so you can tighten or loosen it depending on how many layers you are wearing.
The only negative thing I can say is the sleeves are a little short. But I am 5'9 and a half, so it's a common thing for me. If you are tall I would suggest sizing up, so that extra sleeve length.

Double breasted, with a detechable waist tie and two side pockets. I sometmes find macs to be a little shapeless on me, with me being apple shape. However It wasn't the case with this coat. I do recommend sizing up as this mac does come up a bit small.
I know when you think of a mac you think of that classic light colour. But I can't work with light colour coats as I always seem to get them dirty.
The mac is light enough to wear during the warmer crisp winter days and layer up when it gets colder. Not only is the shape timeless, they always make you look effortless chic. I've worn it dressed up with a little black dress and dressed down with jeans and trainers.
Both coats are available in sizes 10 to 32, JD Williams also offer 20% off your first order to new customers. Happy Shopping!!
