Acne

. Their cool, simplistic, scandinavian aesthetic always pushes boundaries with unusual colours, androgynous silhouettes and cutting edge textiles. Ever experimenting with new origami- like shapes, sharp tailoring and ballooning proportions, they never fail to deliver something new and exciting with each collection. 


One problem: everything at Acne seems to have been designed for the tall skinny girl. So what's a short curvy girl like me to do? Believe me, I've tried to pretend like it doesn't matter by trying on that gorgeous poppy-red mid length

red shift dress

, only to look like a more like a cheap quality street chocolate that melted a little bit in someones pocket. 


Simple, boxy, knit. That's the answer. Effortlessly cool in clinical white. Sure, it's a pretty well known fact that when girls with above average size boobs wear something of the floaty/baggy variety it can often look like a big maternity top hiding a 7 month baby bump. But it can definitely work if you play with the proportions of your other clothes right (skinny jeans, mini skirts and short shorts are the answer.)

In other fashionable related news, you may have seen splattered all over my twitter and instagram feeds my recent trip to Amsterdam to join the

team. I'm now the

London based events and editorial writer

for

Fashionchick UK

, so that means darting all around London attending press days, events, and parties to take photos and report back on all of the latest on the website, so look out for me at events and if I take a snap of you it could well end up featured on the

Fashionchick
