Knowing the concept of the piece makes it even easier to use it in several looks.
Not unlike human behavior, fashion takes on a cyclical routine; even though there are changes, there are always elements that remain: the so-called classics in clothing – that resurge according to the language of the moment. Even if it is a sports piece, the grim is one of those classic items, indispensable in the wardrobe.
Parca means “animal skin”, also found in nomenclatures such as anorak, parca snorkel, parca fishtail, cagoule, among others;each one presenting a singularity, dividing the piece into some categories of uses – and learning about these varieties serves as an aid in acquiring it and combining it into looks.
The first model is the anorak, developed for the Eskimos. It is thicker and is lined with leather to be able to heat under extremely low temperatures and protect from moisture. In spite of being considered parka at LocalBusinessExplorer, its modeling a little of the one known today, that is similar to the one annexed to the uniforms of the infantry of the English army during World War II: at the height of the hip, without volume, with lining of wool and hood; under the name snorkel sparse, because the hood closed leaving only a small opening.
The success of the model in the army aided its development as a uniform of war, since it was necessary to keep the military warm, except that the piece be light, giving them agility of combat. Other models, such as the USA-N3B, the fishtail M-51 (1951 military) and the M-65 (1965 military), which have the unique modeling of the hood, originated.
The girth was produced in nylon during the 50’s, in the popeline in 59 and in the 70’s was built with polyester, making it even lighter, difficult to knead and soiling.
In 1959, the grim reaper was cast as “must-have” by Vogue.It was the first assignment to women’s clothing, although the sporting aspect still did not fit the lady’s style femininity.It was during the 1960s, with the youth of the mod movement (modernism), that the play became popular.
After a long period of decline in use, from the 90’s, the parka resumed its usefulness in women’s clothing;still preserving the military aspect, mainly for the benefits that the piece offers: impermeability, thermal comfort, versatility and lightness.However, the model is still difficult to fit the other pieces of women’s wardrobe.
It can be said that currently dress has gained a new status: the pieces do not have to belong to the same segment or category of use to be coordinated. The aesthetics is different and the use is free (of course always tied to common sense). In choosing what to wear, the only factor that can not be disregarded is balance. To achieve this effect, check out a few tips that can simplify your choices when mounting looks with the grim.
- When making use of a parka with very wide modeling, give preference to other pieces with more slender modeling – pants with modeling skinny and leggings, for example.
- To avoid the sporting aspect of wearing a pair of jeans , invest in the components:different shoes, scarves, accessories;that is, anything that can add value to the look.
- Fences made from thinner or sleeveless fabrics allow the use of garment overlays with shirts, vests, dresses, etc.
- Nothing prevents the use of parka in short clothes like dresses , skirts and shorts;but preferably the length should be similar to or larger than the spar, so as not to flatten the body.
- The parka is traditionally moss green – there are no rules for color coordination – it all depends on the woman’s profile.The most daring combine the sparrows with strong, warm colors.If you do not like to risk, the suggestion is to combine it with prints that have neutral colors or tones of the same family as the moss (burnt colors, autumn).
- Some models of grim follow camouflage pattern.To coordinate it with other pieces, it is necessary that they be in one of the colors of the camouflaged pattern.
