Kim Kardashian had quite a successful 2013 with a new baby and a new engagement to rapper Kanye West and she saw in 2014 in style with a family ski-ing trip to Aspen. Jealous? I really envy her life. And with the wedding in 2014, it can only get better. The rest of us can either hate her or note what she does and take action.
I think I prefer the second option – rather than wallow in frustration about life, we can use 2014 as a chance to change for the better. This means sorting out our wardrobes and at this time of year, the main thing we all need is a good Winter coat. Save the pretty party dresses and beautiful high heels for later in the year, I think it’s better to start the year in comfort. Being warm and dry certainly puts me in a good mood and Kim Kardashian shows you don’t need to compromise on fashion to stay warm and toasty.
At first glance, it looks like Kim is wearing a black parka but look closely and you’ll see it’s embellished with fur. This gives a contrasting effect – just like the Love Label fur hooded parka coat and the Glamorous fax fur with patchwork sleeves (above). In fact, there are a few ways to make a Winter coat more interesting using this contrast effect and I’m very happy to see that at Very. As well as that Glamorous faux fur (below centre) I’ve noticed the very cool French Connection military parka (left) and the Love Label leather sleeve faux fur coat (right).
Talk about starting 2014 in style! Black, white and green (and a mix at the same time), you can make an entrance without compromising on comfort. What do you think about the contrast trend?
