Hello my loves :*

I usually buy clothing pieces in my personal size. But not always! I can remember when I was shopping at the men collection for the first time. The reason was that I found a very stylish pullover there. At first, I felt unconfident because I thought of buying a pullover FOR MEN. But why not? In times unisex fashion and oversize, I think it is just modern to widen the own taste. Today, I would like to show you why it is worth it to try a different size or a clothing piece for men.

Reasons for shopping another size than your own

There is no fashion rule which says: Just shop everything in your own size. But we all keep with our habits because we fear that it won´t look good otherwise. I think that we should try different styles because fashion and also art invite us to be creative and to get to know different characters. Fashion should make fun! Fortunately the fashion scene is developing constantly and it won´t be boring. Best example is unisex fashion. At H&M there are basics being designed for women and men. Moreover plus size fashion is also developing fast.

How I found my red dress – in another size

Another point is that I consciously bought my red dress by H&M several sizes bigger.  No it was not one of these desperate “My size is sold out”-buys. I didn´t like the tight form.  So I had another idea. Actually, I had imagined a flared, swinging dress looking both casual and elegant. Therefore I tried another size. Can you follow my thoughts?

My interpretation of the oversize trend

Finally, clothing can look good in several variations from another size to different ways of combining it. Especially oversize is demanded at the moment and it can give a simple look a modern touch. My plissee dress by H&Mappears quite stiff in my own size, but it looks so modern and fresh in a bigger size. In combination to the dress I wear laced up sandals by OASIS which make the legs visually longer. All in all, my favourite bag by CHLOÉ and my shades by KOMONO are the perfect highlights on top.
