Get ready for a chilly spring with a warm but lightweight coat
from Concept K
Winter always seems to be the longest, never-ending season year after year, and we’re forced to bundle up in wooly layers and thick overcoats for months; but how can we be trendy while trying to survive the icy winters? Concept K specializes in winter coats that are lightweight, effective, and fashionable. From small sizes to plus sizes, find your perfect winter coat that is light enough to wear into the early stages of spring, and feel cool and warm at the same time!
The beginning of spring is still too cold to come out in t-shirts and sandals, but we don’t need as many layers as we did in the midst of winter. Prepare for the mildly chilly season with a lightweight coat that will keep you warm enough, but not too warm. Our bodies have to slowly adjust to the changes in weather and temperature, and we want to help make that transition easy by dressing appropriately according to the weather each day.
There is a variety of stylish coats to choose from, depending on your personal style. There are classic looks, street style looks, and basic pieces too. Coats also come in a variety of colours and patterns, so you can find the coat that truly matches your style. Most of us don’t have the luxury of owning twenty different coats, so we have to think how we can wear a single coat with all of our different clothes hanging in our wardrobe. You always want to dress practically and sensibly, and finding the right coat is a relatively big decision considering you’ll wear it with most of your clothes.
Choosing the right coat for you can be easy, sometimes you’ll discover a piece that immediately catches your eye and it’s love at first sight; and other times you’ll spend weeks looking all over for the right coat for you. It’s okay to be picky! If you’re picky, then in the end you’ll know you’ll get the coat you truly love (or you hope!).
When you’re looking for the perfect coat to wear into spring, think of it as an investment; it’s a coat you can wear in the winter with warm layers underneath, and it’s a coat you can wear in the spring with just a shirt underneath. Find your coat at Concept K and get your wardrobe ready for spring! Maybe if we’re all ready early, spring might come earlier this year (we can pretend a little)!
MARINA RINALDI’s SS2012 collection is a clash of 70s brights
Marina Rinaldi is one of the world’s foremost fashion designers. Indeed, she is one of the dominant figures in fashion shows in the world’s fashion capital, Paris. Basically, just like all major fashion designers, she is able to create styles and designs that are always on par with the times.
Thus spring-summer 2012 (SS2012), the fashion icon will focus on the so-called colour blocking. What does colour blocking mean? Basically, this term has come to describe a kind of fashion statement which involves the use of a rainbow of colors creating a dazzling array of contrasts and shades. Indeed, this color blocking is expected to make the spring and summer seasons livelier and funnier than before.
Basically, the idea of using multiple color combinations actually originated sometime in the 1970s. As we may observe, this fashion icon that we are talking about is an avid and loyal creator of clothing styles which possess gray and back colors creating an aura of gloom and melancholy. Indeed, this may come as a surprise to those observers and Rinaldi loyalists.
However, one must not really be disappointed. Basically, this 1970’s style promises plentiful surprises that will bring back classic memories of the 1970s. After all, looking back to the past, we will see that the 1970s is really the era of fashion explosion. Indeed, it is not really to say that this is an era of fashion refinement, but this was the golden age of designers and fashion lovers alike. At this point, fashion experimentation was highly popular. Colour blocking was one of the products of such experimentation.
If we are to analyze the mental description alone, we might see something that is awkwardly outrageous. After all, some colors are meant to be in harmony with others, while others are not meant to be with other specific colors. However, with Marina’s creations, we will not be able to feel an iota of awkwardness in the creations. Indeed, these new designs for SS2012 will definitely be a stark contrast to the ‘dark and gloomy’ creations of the AW2011. It is not to say, however, that those creations were unpleasant because they definitely were.
If you were new to the world of fashion, you might think that the color blocking employment is a bit weird. However, thanks to intensely wonderful graphics and amazing color combinations, we will experience nothing less than the creation of the best contemporary designer Paris has produced: Marina Rinaldi.
