“YOU SHOULDN'T WEAR THAT!" WEARING EVERYTHING A FAT GIRL IS NOT SUPPOSED TO WEAR.
June 20, 2018
There are certain fashion rules plus-size women have been told to follow since decades. You know the ones. "Plus-size women can't wear bright colors." "Plus-size women can't wear anything that shows some thigh." "Plus-size women must only wear baggy, shapeless garbage bags and hide every curve and roll on their bodies." I am here to break all those rules and more.
I do believe that anyone can wear anything that they want and can make any trend work for them as long as they choose correctly. I recently did a photo-shoot showcasing 5 things fat/plus-size women are advised to avoid wearing and here are the results!
1. "You can't wear bold prints"
A major plus-size fashion "rule" for as long as I can remember has been "stay away from bold prints! People will see you too much!" This is what I think of it - Your clothes don't make you look fat, your fat makes you look fat. So, you might as well rock that print instead of a boring basic piece of clothing.
Here, I am wearing a gorgeous red playsuit with a floral print that I found at New Look.
2. "You can't wear bright/light colors"
Remember that scene in K3G when Kareena tells Kajol, "Black makes me look thin and green makes you look fat!"? Yeah, that was some real shade back in the early 2000s and right out of the fat girl rule-book.
Personally, I think black can be a very sexy color for a night out, but what's life without a little color? I am all about the color. More rainbows and unicorns, please!
Here I am wearing a pastel blue co-ordinate set from Forever 21 Plus and the jacket is from Namshi.com. I decided to pair the look with magenta earrings from H&M and this adorbs head scarf to make the look perfect for Summer!
3. You can't wear crop tops
If only I could tell you how long I took to buy this outfit. I was in the trial room staring at myself in the mirror for at least 30 minutes and wondering if I can pull it off. And then I thought to myself, who the hell cares? Not me! I know crop tops are a big no-no when it comes to fashion there is no such thing as a no-no.
This full look is from New Look! I bought it in store =]
4. You can't wear short shorts
Okay, I will be real here. This was an easy category to pull off for me cause I have always been comfortable with wearing shorts/short dresses and showing off my legs. However, I do understand that many girls struggle with pulling off short hemlines because of cellulite or the size of their thighs. FYI: Even Kim Kardashian has cellulite. Case closed.
This complete look is from Riverisland.com =]
5. You can't wear sleeveless.
From the category I stuggled with the least to the category I struggled with the most. I can sit here and pretend like I am happy and confident about all of me all the time, but that is simply not true. I have always struggled when it comes to wearing sleeveless and my arms have always made me very conscious. However, some outfits go from fabulous to granny like as soon as you put a jacket on and this beautiful co-ord set was one of them!
I love this look and it is from Forever 21+ from their Deira City Center store x
I had a feeling that these images would do well but I never expected the amount of positive messages and amazing feedback you guys gave me! I really love you all and I really hope that this encouraged you to wear that sleeveless dress that has been in your wardrobe for months or those pair of shorts you bought, but never wore!
Lots of love from your plus size blogger xx
