Plus Size Fashion - Do We Always Have To Be Revolutionary?
There is a well known saying that life is too short to wear boring clothes. It's often pictured on memes and pops up on my social media feeds. The question I have been asking myself is, who made that rule?
Over the last few weeks we have seen fat bodies celebrated more than ever. Yes, we still have a way to go but there have been several publications celebrating plus size bodies and the way they look. We have seen people and their bodies celebrated for their bravery and the way they dress which is nothing less than fantastic.
A lot of the time we celebrate bodies that are really making a stand - we see underwear shots, crop tops, short skirts and more shared amongst ourselves. It really is fantastic that people want to wear these clothes and that we're starting to see attitudes change towards those that start to wear them!
However, my wardrobe is pretty boring in the grand scheme of things and I don't want to apologise for that. If I want to wear butterfly patterned dresses with leggings and want to shy away from crop tops, that's OK too! Most days I wear a dress and leggings - sometimes with trainers, sometimes with shoes and if I am feeling particularity sassy I'll team it up with some ankle boots.
Yes, life is short and most of us could probably do more to make the most of it however don't let anyone make you feel that you're doing something wrong because you have a "boring" wardrobe.
One of the nicest things about fashion is that we have choice - and more and more those choices are sneaking their way to into plus size fashion. If you want to wear a crop top and booty shorts I'll fight pretty much to the death for your right to do so, but also if you want to wear a hanky hem tunic top and leggings that's more than OK too!
We're starting to see lots of strong men and weep seep through to our social media influences which is nothing less than amazing. But please don't put yourself down if you're not someone who wants to show off their belly or if you prefer to wear something that covers your arms - your body is yours to dress how you wish and please do not let anyone tell you otherwise!
