The bigger the better
Clothes should fit perfectly? Not in my world. And not according to the Fall/winter 2012 trends. I prefer buying a larger size. I love the masculine look. In my opinion androgyny is not only cool, it is also very sexy. It is unexpected and dominant. I am a masculine dresser, but I always add a feminine touch to my look. My style could be described as androgynous with a feminine twist.
For those who like the masculine look but are a bit afraid to try this look, Fall/Winter 2012 offers you to start experimenting in a big way. Big and oversize are going to be one of the most important trends this season. Everything from coats, to sweaters, cardigans and tops. Even the trousers, skirts and dresses are wide, oversized and puffy.
Niels and I spotted the oversized coats on the runways of Jil Sander, Max Mara and Celine. The Hunters are big fans of the oversized sweaters, which is taking over the runways (Balenciaga, Balmain and Chloe) and the streets. The variety is large, rounded sleeves, asymmetrical lines, different materials from wool, silk, angora to the cotton sweat fabric. Forget about any rules, have fun.
