Stylecheck – I would never have worn that before

Again and again I stumble over pictures from earlier times and it really make me smirk. The taste changes with the years and upcoming fashion trends. No question! If I have to describe these changes for my own sense of style, one thing becomes particularly clear.

In the recent years, I have won a much better body feeling and this is also evident in my clothes selection. I used to buy my clothes without any feeling for body proportions. I liked a pattern of a skirt and I forced myself into the smallest possible size. Simply because it was good for my own ego to fit into an XS or 34. In the meantime, I know exactly which body parts I like and how I can optimize small problem areas with the right clothes. But I’ve also changed my attitude to beauty ideals. I’m not longer trying to fit into any standard, but want to get the best out of me and my body. That means I will never have a slim waist, because my body physique simply ist made like this … and I’m fine with that!

When I saw the pictures of today’s look, I noticed a few more changes.

My hairstyle

I would never have worn my hair behind my ears. I used to have a slanting pony, and a few months ago, I always dropped as many hairs into my face as possible. When my friend lovingly put my hair behind my ear, I hated this feeling. Where does the change of meaning come from? I really have no idea.


For a long time I was incredibly grateful not to wear glasses. That’s what I am, but I like the look of the special accessory.

A casual mom-jeans

I used to wear high waist and skinny jeans and now I like the loose-fitting mom jeans even better. I love this silhouette as it looks just comfortable and casual at the same time.

Pointed ankleboots

I’ve always worn ankleboots in Autumn and Winter. The big difference is the shoe tip, which can now also have a pointed toecap. Previously this was an absolute no-go, because I liked it, when the feet seems to look as small as possible.

The oversized shirt

I love oversized shapes when it comes to sweaters and coats, as well as on shirts. Even if they don’t emphasize the advantages of the figure at first glance, it makes the figure often look a bit more graceful. The trick is that you can emphasize thinner body parts, such as the wrists or the shoulders. This is why I chose this model von Rich & Royal  in the size 40
