All stylish gals know that Monki is the best part of ASOS

Effortlessly cool.

ASOS IS FULL of great stuff, but there’s one brand in particular that’s beloved of stylish gals in the know: Monki.

The Swedish brand gets a lot of grá from bloggers and regular women alike for its interesting shapes and fun patterns, and if you’re not already a fan, you will be.

1. It caters to gals of all shapes and sizes

The sizes run from XS to L – their oversized pieces (and there are a lot of oversized pieces) fit sizes 20+ comfortably.

2. And the awareness of what ‘real women’ want extends beyond the clothes

To mark its 10th birthday this year, the brand released their ‘Monkifesto’ – ten statements in support of periods, body hair, LGBT issues and diversity, amongst other things.

3. Their stuff is just a little bit weird

It’s not ‘flattering’, it’s not ‘sexy’ (well, not in the normal definition of the word), and it’s certainly not like anything else you see on the high street.

4. The roomy, swingy smock dresses are IDEAL to wear for a big feed

Just more stylish muumuus, for when you want to look nice but still eat all the pizza.

5. And there’s plenty there to make you look like a Fancy Woman

You know when you see a woman looking chic and put-together and think “I WANT THAT”? Well you can have it!

6. As well as unexpected little details to make your outfits more fun


7. It’s not intimidating

Not like, say, Topshop or Cos. You can buy and feel pretty confident you’ll look class in it.

8. And the clothes make you feel just a little bit cool, even if you’re not

Which is what we’re all after at the end of the day, isn’t it?
