I think this is the first time in my adult life that I am actually trying to wear something other than sundresses all Summer. I’m really starting to find myself and figure out my (super fresh) plus size style and what I like to wear, and becoming more capable of actually putting looks together, and that has suddenly made me very bored with dresses. So the obvious next step is to start figuring out how the hell to wear skirts.
I’ve always thought that skirts had to be something that were big and fluffy and a-lined, probably pleated. I had this idea in my head that there was one type of plus size skirt I could wear that suited my body, and i really stuck with it. I definitely still love a big fluffy skirt, but sportier more casual looks are definitely becoming my go-to. I also really dig not having a ton of fabric for the wind to catch and expose my (usually nude) tushy to the world. Appreciate you less-full skirts, thanks for that.
I am also getting more comfortable looking less “girly”. I have never really described myself as feminine, but have often dressed in that manner because that’s just… well that’s just how I’ve been taught fat girls are allowed to dress. Look, I’m not throwing out all my favorite florals any time soon, but I’m definitely feeling a little bit less attached to them. I’m more frequently drawn to streamlined, minimalist, sporty designs these days. It feels nice. It feels new and a bit weird, but also very true to myself. I’m into that!
