An outfit in the Zwiebellook, which is also referred to as Lagenlook (more or less the same), scores in many respects: several superimposed garments usually warm better than a thick part. If it is then too warm in it, one leaves the situation for location. In addition, the Zwiebellook – at least optically – ensures a good figure. It stretches or compresses-depending on how the individual layers are combined. Reasons enough to love the onellook, right?
Onellook Is Not Equal To Lagenlook!
The onellook is also called Lagenlook, although the actually two pairs of different shoes are. Onellook actually means, like an onion with its many hides, to put on several garments on top of each other. In our experience there must be at least eight parts for the onellook to be complete. Lagenlook, on the other hand, denotes a garment consisting of several layers of fabric.
The advantage of several (thin) garments is reflected in the so-called onion weather days, which occur again and again in spring (April, May, June) or autumn (September, October, November): in the morning and / or in the evening it is uncomfortably cold, while the sun during the day, it already or still manage to provide comfortable warmth. A thick sweater, warming up in the morning and in the evening, would make a sweat at noon. It is well to the person who has wrapped himself in several thin layers of fabric – and can wear it or take it off to suit the temperature.
Interesting: It is a tradition to be layered into your clothes. Literally less well-heeled people used to wear several thinner summer pieces instead of the expensive winter fabrics – and were sometimes even warmer than the well-heeled. The warming effect develops thanks to the insulating air between the individual fabric layers. On top of that, thicker fabrics were often quite stiff and scratchy.
The necessity for a long time has become a virtue, that is to say, a fashionable style-the onellook. And while it was once thoughtunclean to show which layers one is wearing over one another , they are not only happy to show them, no, the layers are obviously set in scene. Best example: Whoever used to wear a warm short-sleeved T-shirt under the long-sleeved sweater, pulls it over today. Best in the eye-catching color and / or pattern contrast. At the moment, many collections show the lace of underwear from cut-outs and / or cuffs.
The Zwiebellook is also popular, because it allows us to emphasize our most beautiful sides optimally and conceal problem zones. That sounds trite? Then we provide illustrative examples. But first of all, the hint: to make the bulb look less heavy and compact, you combine casual and transparent, with opaque layers. And even that should take note of who wants to hide the one or the other pounds too much under a layer system: onellook does not mean to clutter bulky – on the contrary: Emphasize curves with the material layers as much as possible and show them!
- Long Upper Body?
Then strain it visually by putting two or three different lengths on top of each other instead of a long top, which must be shorter than the one below.
- Barely Waist Or Short Upper Body?
Then, over a narrow-cut long and, above all, dark top, you pull a shorter slightly more groovy in a brighter tone.
- Long Legs?
Then compress them visually with leggins in 3/4 or 7/8 length.
- Thin Calves?
Then tighten your cuffs to pretend what lack of fullness is missing.
- Big Chest And / Or Short Neck?
Then wear a deep v-neck, under which a pointed hem protrudes. The lace is delicate, the V-neck pulls the neckline down optically.
- Flat Chest?
Then pull breast-strengthening parts above it! For example with flounces, attached pockets or patterns at the chest. Or pieces with a Carmen neckline, which frees the shoulder, or with waterfall neckline, the volume conjures. It is also an advantage: Obedd over-parts in the Empire style, the cross-section of which makes the waist optically up below the chest.
Last But Not Least …
An onellook classic is, by the way, the twin set, that is, a knitted second-strand, usually short-sleeved sweater and cardigan, made of one and the same material.
Good to know, many designers are interested in the topic of Zwiebellook. Deerberg has even made it a favorite – and several collection lines, for example “Yamina”, whose parts you can combine individually as well as in layers, Since they are matched in material and patterns. This makes shopping fun! Guaranteed!
