Women's Anorak Jackets

Anorak, parka, raincoat…they’re all the same thing, right? Well, not exactly. While we don’t want to get too technical, we do want to share a few facts about women’s anorak jackets that will help you find the right outerwear. Get ready to take notes because Macy’s is about to school you on Anorak Jackets.

What Is An Anorak?
First things first: an anorak is defined as a hooded jacket or short coat that’s long enough to cover the hips and protect the wearer against wind, rain and cold weather. It usually features cinching with drawcords or drawstrings at the waist. These can be located on the inside or the outside of the jacket.

When To Wear An Anorak
Women’s anorak jackets range from lightweight rain jackets to heavy-duty versions with extra padding or insulation for cold weather. This is important to bear in mind when you’re browsing online. After all, you wouldn’t want to end up with a thin wisp of a raincoat when you really need outerwear that can withstand freezing temperatures.

How To Style An Anorak
Anorak jackets pair well with a wide range of women’s clothing and work at both ends of the personal-style spectrum, from trend-focused to timeless.

Their utility-inspired look harmonizes beautifully with classic silhouettes like slim turtlenecks and tailored trousers. For heightened contrast, offset romantic pieces like ruffled dresses and maxi skirts with anoraks for an appealing touch of toughness.

Macy’s offers anorak jackets for women in a variety of fabrics from nubby bouclé to cotton canvas, along with water-resistant options perfect for rainy days. We also carry petite and plus size anorak jackets to ensure you always find the perfect fit.

Now that you know the basics of anorak jackets, you’re ready to find the right one for your closet, right here at Macy’s.
