Blue Fish has been a lagenlook clothing company since the beginning. Nobody loves layering more than we do!
Lagenlook means “layered look” in German, and has been a popular way of dressing in Europe for some time. But Blue Fish fans have turned it into a distinctive Made in America look. From our layering tees and tanks, to our midlayers and shifts with a vest or jacket to top it off, our collections are designed to layer and layer and layer. Three layers…four layers, five – it all works with these styles.
We love this look for so many reasons!
- First it’s a great way to express your sense of color and style with different prints and styles. It becomes a work of art in itself to see your outfit come together!
- Second it recalls a time when women wore beautiful flowing clothing all the time…a nostalgic call back to Victorian and Edwardian dressing.
- Third it is forgiving to all body types.
Our clothes are comfy and cozy and light and flowing, adjust your wardrobe by fabric type for wherever you live!
Lagenlook 101 - the Blue Fish Way
First start with a layering top and bottom: a tank, tee, & legging. Pick a style in tissue weight cotton, or our organic cotton jersey.
Second grab a midlayer! We recommend a shift, apron or skirt. Use a linen or silk style to give the look texture. Pick something with a print to add a little pop of color.
Third add a layering cardi, vest, or light jacket. Pick something with texture or a bold print… or tone down the look with a neutral if you are going to add another layer.
Fourth throw on a jacket or coat. Heading out? Just love a jacket? Get in game here! What’s another layer? Just want to rock one stand-alone piece…like the perfect dress? This is your moment!
Fifth accessorize… This is where it gets fun. Now’s the chance to really express yourself, and finish your look. Wrap a belt, drape a scarf, dangle a handful of necklaces.
Make it your own – skip steps reverse steps …have fun. As you get more confident, getting dressed every day will be a personally fulfilling expression of your artistic spirit.
As always there are no rules in Blue Fish Land!
