Chicago to Philadelphia to Chamonix to Munich and more, The North Face Women's Parkina Down Jacket offers stylish warmth for your winter urban outfits. Note to the ski-bum fashionistas: the Parkina plays well with the apres-ski or blazing bonfire bevy, too. In short, when conditions demand water resistance and big warmth with sleek style and sophistication, you'll be thrilled to have the Parkina in your closet. Treated with DWR, the durable polyester twill shell offers water resistance from spitting sleet and snow flurries. A slippery nylon satin twill lining lets the Parkina skim over any top, be it your boyfriend's fisherman sweater or your hand-beaded little black dress. In between, you'll find 600-fill goose down, keeping you warm on your January gallery stroll or while you're waiting for the local bus to take you back to the mountain chalet in Turino. The down is even water resistant, which means if moisture does seep through the shell, the down will retain some of its warmth. If the wind picks up before you've arrived for the ball, the adjustable hood will protect your updo and prevent body heat from escaping through your head. The faux-fur trim can be removed, but you look so cute when your face is framed in fur, why would you take it off'Feminine lines create a sleek silhouette, accentuated by a belted waist and modern quilting. Not only does quilting enhance the haute-couture element, it also prevents the down insulation from shifting and collecting in favored locations. An internal media pocket with cord guide lets you listen to music or talk with friends without having to take your hands out of your pockets. Stretch cuffs and the stand-up collar are reinforcements against an army of bitter breezes and shiver-creating snow. Add a cashmere scarf and leather gloves, and strut your (warm) winter stuff down 5th Avenue.
