Double up – Leather

Hej med jer,

(English below)

Så er vi tilbage med endnu en omgang double up. Denne gang har vi valgt læder som tema og ved et tilfælde blev det til (fake) læderleggins hos os begge. For sådan et par skal man bare have sig i år!

Mine er fra HM+ hvor jeg faktisk slet ikke handler tit! Jeg synes ofte de har SÅ triste styles i forhold til H&Ms andre linjer (skal vi f.eks ikke snart have et HM+ designsamarbejde?! Vi tykke må jo ikke få Isabel Marant pour H&M, eftersom det kun går til str. 42. Ring til mig H&M, så kan vi tale om Copenhagen Curves for HM+ 😉 ) Anyway, forleden fandt jeg faktisk op til flere ting i HM+ som jeg syntes om, bla. disse læderleggins (der har tykt jersey på bagsiden). Jeg har stylet dem med mine favorit-items pt: en lang cardigan, en hvid tee og frynsestøvler.

We are back with another instalment of double up! This time the theme is leather and by coincidence we both chose (fake) leather leggins for the challenge. And if that does not send a clear enough message that leather leggins is a key item this season, you are clearly not reading enough fashion blogs 😉 

Mine are from HM+ were I really don’t shop a lot. I think the + styles are SO boring compared to the other H&M lines (do we not deserve a design collaboration soon?! Us fatties are clearly not allowed to get Isabel Marant pour H&M, because the sizes only go up to EU42/UK14/US12. Call me H&M, so we can discuss Copenhagen Curves for HM+ 😉 ) Anyway, the other day I stumbled upon multible things in HM+ that I liked, like these leather leggins (they have a thick jersey-knit on the back). I have styled them with my current favorite items: a long cardigan, a white tee and fringe boots. 

 Leather leggins – H&M // Cardigan – Vero Moda // Tee – 2nd Day (by Day Birger et Mikkelsen) // Necklace – Pieces // Rings – H&M // Hat – H&M // Boots – H&M // Bag – Alexander Wang (borrowed from Stine) // Dog, Soffie – Borrowed by Stine 😉
 Soffie gad kun posere så længe jeg havde godbidder, lige så snart jeg løb tør, så var hun væk! // Soffie only wanted to pose when I had treats, as soon as I ran out, so did Soffie!

Husk at smutte forbi Rikke også og se hendes (lidt mere farverige) fortolkning af ugens tema!

Remember to stop by Rikke as well to see her (more colourful) interpretation of this week’s theme!

  1. omg du har så evigt ret! H&M+ er så røv kedeligt! Den almindelige linje bliver opdateret med nye styles hver uge men kommer der noget nyt til +? En jule/nytårs tøj kollektion? Nogle styles som bare er semi on-trend? NEJ.. Jeg ved ikke hvem der designer for H&M+ men personen er i hvert fald ikke selv i + klassen ellers ville deres tøj ikke være så kedeligt! Det passer meget godt ind i det verdenssyn der desværre er at man ikke kan være lækker eller smart når man er plus size (men det er en helt anden diskussion).

  2. Din cardigan er simpelthen så fin. Har den lommer og må man spørge, hvad str. du har købt den i? Og også super seje leggins – hvad str. er de? Jeg er helt vild med det simple outfit:-D

  3. Heldigvis kan vi jo vælge at lade være med at gå i HM+ hvis det er. Gudskelov at der er kommet mere konkurrence på dette marked og at der endelig er nogle der synes vi fortjener at se godt ud (eller i hvert fald gerne vil tjene penge på os ;-))

  4. Den har lommer ja 🙂 Det er en XL. Leggins'ne er også en XL, for sjovt nok bruger jeg en XL/48 i HM+ og L/46 i almindelig H&M, hvorfor det mon er, må guderne vide! 😀

  5. Hello,
    I am a fashion student at Edinburgh University working on a project that has been set by the clothing brand H&M, for their autumn/winter 2015 plus size range. We have been asked to interview people that dress stylishly and having seen your blog I’ve been inspired for design ideas. The aim of the project is to design a small fashion collection for the plus size and for me to create suitable clothes I am doing some market research to see what type of clothes people enjoy wearing. I have a few target market questions that if you have the time I would really appreciate you answering.
    I would be grateful if you could email me your responses – it shouldn’t take more than a few minutes!

    1) Which age range are you? 16-20, 20-24, 25-30 or 30+
    2) Have you heard of H&M plus?
    3) If yes, do you like the clothes, do you shop there?
    4) Would you call yourself: trendy, classic/chic, fashionable, edgy, or other?
    5) Do you think that fashion caterers well for you body shape?
    6) Do you find it difficult to find clothes that flatter, fit and are bang on trend?
    7) Which of these materials would you be most likely to wear in winter (choose multiple)? Woolly knitted, jersey, leather, tartan, woollen woven, fur or other?
    8) Would you prefer to have printed or plain fabrics to make a coat? A top? A jumper?
    9) Do you prefer for your clothes to be tight fitting or to be loose, or just to be on trend?
    10) When you buy clothes do you look for them being in fashion or do you go for clothes that fit, flatter and suit you?

    In advance thank you very much for your help.
