What is Lagenlook?

Lagenlook is German for ‘layered look’ and is a unique way of dressing that involves layering different garments to create individual outfits.  Designed to accommodate everyone, the Lagenlook is ideal for those looking to express their own brand of fashion choice. With varying layers of clothes and accessories, the Lagenlook is perfect all body types and gives a unique look to all shapes and sizes.  There is, however, a huge misconception around this European style; that it was designed to cover the figure.  Instead, we believe it’s an opportunity to use your unique silhouette as a fresh and personalised pallet for colours and textures. It makes for a perfect for a plus size clothing style for ladies.



Many plus size women like the style of dress due to the freedom it gives you to showcase your personal style.  Being able to choose from a multitude of different items makes it easy (and enjoyable) to come up with ensembles that boast a creative flair.  The use of natural fabrics is big among lagenlook brands.  Often you will find styles made from linen or silk, that does not only feel wonderfully soft to wear but are breathable and hypoallergenic too, adding even more advantages to its existing benefits.

Finally, lagenlook styles are cut oversized and aren’t restrictive which adds to their appeal.  Because who does not want clothes that are comfy to wear and move when you do?  The beauty of lagenlook is you can experiment as much as you like, there are no strict rules.  We recommend ordering a range of styles to try out at home in front of your mirror until you find what works for you.
