Autumn Favorites: Grey Overknees meet Red Coat

Overknees Konstantin Starke Grau

You guys know by now how much I like to think about certain trends. Although you cant really consider overknees a „trend“ anymore and in my opinion have become an autumn essential, there is still something controversial about them – at least from a societal point of view.

Over the last years we are seeing more and more women wearing overknees, but still I feel like society cant really deal with it yet. Let me explain to you what I mean by claiming that. Well, I clearly see how people keep staring at my legs every time I wear mine… and I’ve heard that from a lot of girls wearing overknees. People would not do so if we wore sneakers, right? There are many reasons why people stare and most of the time it’s because they see something extraordinary or odd; something that does not fit the status quo. But overknees are not really a new and unusual trend – So what’s the deal?  Unfortunately society still misinterprets some types of clothing. A widespread belief is that women dress up to impress men, but true fashionistas only care about fashion, the designs, the material, the composition, the art. Do you really think a Chiara Ferragni wears a short skirt with the aim to look sexy? It’s a pity but I feel like overknees also kind of fall into this „mini-skirt-scheme“. Honestly, I do not care about what people think about my clothes, but I always try to avoid sending the wrong signals to the – lets say mostly fashion-ignorant majority of people. So in order to dampen the effect, I always try to combine my grey overknees with something more casual and comfy, like this oversized knit, a long coat and stockings. It’s really sad that some clothes carry a certain negative connotation and that people think in stereotypes. Although I am always pro challenging the status quo, it still kinda intimidates me when many people stare at me. However, you can only fight stereotypes if you work against them and not by adjusting to people’s narrow mindsets and comfort zones.

    Voll schön das Outfit!! Der Pulli ist aber nicht der gleiche wie der von dem Link, oder? Von welcher Marke ist der denn und gibt’s den vielleicht noch? Bin nämlich auch noch auf der Suche nach einem Oversized Winterpulli :) LG

    Found that it’s just simpler to purchase them on the internet.
