How to wear: Oversize Sweatshirt

Hej med jer,

(English below)

Nu er det jo snart efterår, eller i hvert fald er det snart tid til at AW12 kollektionerne kommer i butikkerne. Jeg har kigget nærmere på en trend, som vi kommer til at se igen her til efteråret, nemlig oversize sweatshirts båret på andre tidspunkter end søndag eftermiddag på sofaen 😉

Men hvad gør man når man er plus size og ikke altid bare kan købe nummeret større for at få det oversize look? Man shopper i mandeafdelingen! Jeg snupper altid en tur gennem f.eks H&Ms mandeafdeling, for der er gode ting at finde til et oversize look.

Fall is soon here or at least the AW12 collections will be in the stores soon. I have had a look at a trend that we eill see again this fall: oversize sweatshirts worn on other ocassions than Sundays on the couch 😉

But what to do when you are plus size and not always able just to size up for a more oversize look? You shop at the men’s department! I always browse through the men’s department at for instance H&M, because there can really be some good stuff to create an oversize look. 

I forårskollektionerne så vi meget “sportswear” sat sammen med pænere ting som nederdele og pæne bukser eller pæne skjorter og joggingbukser. Til efteråret er der igen sporty detaljer at se på runway’en. Bla. hos Balenciaga. Ok, de swearshirts er måske lidt for vilde til min hverdag, men jeg har sat to look sammen til jer, som er flotte, men lidt mindre iøjenfaldende.

In the SS12 collections we saw a lot of sportswear inspired pieces that were styled with a more formal pieces. A nice skirt with a sweatshirt or a fitted shirt with jogging pants. For fall we saw more sporty pieces on the runway, for instance at Balenciaga. Ok, those sweats are maybe a little too wild for my everyday life, so I have put together two looks for you that I think are quite nice, but maybe not quite as eyecatching.
