What Is Lagenlook?

At Kit and Kaboodal, we’re all about the Lagenlook! So why not take a look at our Lagenlook Clothing to find your next wardrobe essential!

Literally translated to mean ‘layering look’ this European clothing style is designed to suit everyone and is ideal for those looking to put their own stamp on their fashion choice. Lagenlook is centred on the ideal of expression, pairing clothes and statement accessories to create unique looks that work perfectly for all body types. In this blog, we’re going to explore some of the common Lagenlook questions and pick some of our favourite Kit and Kaboodal pieces to help you get the look.


The term ‘Lagenlook’ originated in Germany but the passion for exploring quirky, unusual shapes in clothing spans many European countries. Designers such as Yohji Yamamoto, Marina Avraam and Rick Owens have all championed the Lagenlook style, creating unique styles designed to be layered.

The biggest misconception about Lagenlook is that it’s designed to hide the figure, instead , we think it’s designed to celebrate ALL figures – using your unique silhouette as a canvas to blend colours, texture and fabrics in a way that’s uniquely yours.

How to build the perfect Lagenlook

We’ve picked some of our favourite Kit and Kaboodal pieces to create a classic Lagenlook style that will look great, whatever the occasion.

  1. We’re starting with our classic leggings in black to create the perfect base for our Lagenlook. We’ve picked black but you can take your pick from the wide range of colours available if you’re feeling daring!


  1. Next up we’re going to create an easy layered look with the Made in Italy Varese knitted tunic. This sumptuously soft fabric has the classic Lagenlook asymmetric hem and drape detail that creates an illusion of additional layers.


  1. Now we’re going to finish off our Lagenlook inspired outfit with some must-have statement accessories! Lagenlook is all about not being afraid to show your individual style so your accessories should be bold, bright and most of all – you. We’ve finished with a pair of our Eunice Boots in a stunning wine shade and our Liberty Scarf in a bold red pattern, the perfect finishing touches. You could also add some sparkle with an item of jewellery. Try our lovely Ajwain Necklace
