When In Stockholm

Size Matters

The skinny jean backlash is well under way and I'm craving a bit of baggy comfort. But who said that a bit of fabric is unsexy? Wear your oversize trousers with a skimpy little vest top and heels.


Fabrication

In the pre-spring months when the weather is at it's most unpredictable, layers are a necessity. But looking like Mary Kate Olsen circa 2005 need'nt be part of the equation. Take cues from the Stockholm girls by sticking to an aesthetically pleasing dark colour palette with unusual fabrics like angora thrown into the mix to keep things lively.

a bit of fabric is totally not unsexy f you know what I mean, if only you balance the look with a skimpy vest top as you say, everything is alright and I love wearing baggy stuff.!:)

Oh, dear the baggy light denim/jeans in the top picture is scary. None for me thanks.

But I do love the mixing of layers and fabrics in the bottom pic.

Quite feeling the baggy jeans as they look both comfy and don't give a damn arty at the same time.
