I’d never heard of Lagenlook Fashion it until recently being invited to take a loot at I Dare to Be so if this is your first time hearing about it too, here’s a quick introduction and explanation of what it’s all about.
What Is Lagenlook Fashion?
Lagenlook translated into English simply means “layering look.” It’s a German word and the style has been popular in Europe for a long time. Layering your clothing can be a way of disguising imperfections and creating your very own unique style of dressing. Collections are designed to layer, two, three, four even five layers work! The Lagenlook is an easy fashion fit for the plus size woman.
Why Lagenlook is So Great
All body types from petite to plus size can wear the Lagenlook. It’s a fantastic way to express colour, style and mix and match prints and textures. The Lagenlook is often seen as a living work of art that changes with each wardrobe combination one crafts. The look has an element of modern nostalgia harking back to Victorian and Edwardian dressing.
I Dare to Be
Is a champion of plus size Lagenlook clothing for the “discerning woman who dares to be individual.” I Dare to Be sells edgy and fabulous, unstructured/semi structured, comfortable clothing. The Lagenlook isn’t a mainstream style and is far more creative and a non-conformist. Designs are beautiful wearable works of art with asymmetric lines, crushed fabrics, luxury yarns and quirky detailing. Here’s a few items from their range.
“Never Show My Arms” Black Lace
A lot of plus size women are worried about showing their upper arms off. Here’s something I’ve never seen before and will make a lot of women feel at ease. Thanks I Dare to Be!It’s a sleeve piece to wear underneath sleeveless dresses.
It’s so innovative and versatile and is an easy change making an outfit go from day to night. This very well could be the new secret of plus size fashion and a great confidence builder. This little number is so light and doesn’t crease so you you can keep it with you in your bag to wear at a moments notice. The sleeves clip to the bra strap and fasten at the front. I love this element of the Lagenlook.
