Oversized Layers


Dressing myself happens in phases. One day I’ll feel like going more preppy, the next day I want to wander endlessly around in sweatpants. Today I’m feeling Asian. What the hell that means? Read along, my friend.



Weekday sweater – Monki blouse – Bershka trousers – Vagabond shoes

I AM NOT BEING RASCIST OVER HERE. I’m Asian myself so I’m kind of using that as justifying what I’m about to tell you. It is no secret that Asians, Japanese people in particular have an incredible sense of style. With Yamamoto and Rei Kawakubo as their fashion godfathers, I feel like I might steal one or two things style-wise.

I am totally digging the way Japanese people dress themselves, putting layer upon layer upon layer.

What I’ve witnessed is that short people tend to wear longer stuff which makes them even shorter in my eyes but seeing how Japanese don’t care about that, I’m channeling their ‘whatever’ mood. Layers are really a way to go. But putting oversized over oversized, that is just magic.

It’s no secret that I occasionally wear men’s sweater. And why wouldn’t I? As an ultimate fan of anything oversized, this yellow men’s sweater from Weekday really does the baggy trick. By adding a super long Monki blouse underneath it, I’m creating layering magic (or apron look-a-like thingy) that is on the border of ugly-yet-it-works. Think whatever you want about it but if there is one thing I learned over the years: Does not matter if you like it or not, I’m feeling great about it.
