If you only had 3 words to describe your fashion sense, what would they be?
I think mine are very straight forwards and it didn’t take long for me think them up. They are:
Simple. Modest & Elegant
I have never really been into fashion so when it comes to clothes, I just want them to do as they are supposed to. No Mess. No Fuss. I’m almost -hopeless at combining colours and textures and what not – I say almost because I still look good when I step out. At least in my mind I do *wink*
Lately, I have been on Pinterest a lot and I have been seeing many Oversize Sweaters (or jumpers if like me, you live in the UK) on my home page. These bad boys are right up my
very short fashion street. They embrace my 3 words perfectly.
You can dress them up and be elegant like this:
or dress them down and be totally casual like this:
You can even mix it up and be smart-casual like this:
They are completely effortless and give off this ” I didn’t try too hard” vibe that I love. I also think that oversize sweaters are amazing for most body shape types. They seem to hide my lumps and bumps very well, so no complaints here.
Lastly, another great thing that excites me is that these garments are so knit-able. You can literally cast on and make your own. With needles, yarn and a few measurements, the possibilities are endless. There is no need to worry about shaping and the maths involved in that. You just need a simple drop shoulder schematic and voila! You can be well on you way to designing your very own piece. They show off simple stitches very well but can also display a complicated cable pattern like no one’s business.
I think I’m going to take my own advise and cast on for one. It will be my very first original piece – eek so exciting!
