OOTD | Size it up!

H&M jacket, H&M blouse, SevenSisters jeans, H&M ankle boots
Have you ever seen a clothing item you've wanted for a while but not in your size? It's still worth to try it out! I've had times when I see something I like but not in my size but a few size up.. (it usually happens in Primark) and I just refuse to put it back on the rack again and just keep ahold of it. Until it's time to decide if I want to buy it or leave it. This blouse was one of those days. I saw it hanging on the sales rack and I really liked the layering detail of the blouse but it was as you can guess already too big. I think about three sizes up. But I just tried it on and I thought it was cute as a tunic.

So how do you decide to buy it? First you just look at the fit. Is it okay to wear it a bit oversized? You can always ask someone's opinion on it. Second if it doesn't fit, is it okay to belt it? Usually by cinching it in your waist, you instantly look more pulled together. So next time you see some cute blouse a few sizes too big, try it on! It doesn't really work with pants though.. Maybe the boyfriend fitted ones are okay.

Have you ever worn something a few sizes up than your size?

  3. Wat een mooie blouse, staat je weer super!

  4. Gorgeous outfit! That coat is so lovely on you and I love your shirt :)

  5. The blouse is lovely, I think it looks even better because it's oversized! Oversized clothing are so comfy and can hide any food baby :)

  6. Wat een mooie blouse, inderdaad leuk een beetje oversized. Ik vind je jack ook helemaal geweldig. Ik koop dingen wel eens iets te groot bij vintage kleding.. Dan weet je gewoon dat er geen andere maat gaat zijn en met een riempje ofzo lijkt het inderdaad al snel weer leuk! Heel toffe outfit en mooie foto's! Liefs, Rowan
    PS: Tof je even gezien te hebben bij Winde Rienstra tijdens MBFW! :)
