"Look, I don’t know about you but I’m so sick of having my body type classified. If we aren’t having our bodies compared to fruits, we’re having them compared to geometric shapes and other things we don’t actually look like. But I’m even more sick of having style websites, magazines and TV shows tell me what clothes I should and shouldn’t wear based on my body type.”
The fashion blogosphere is a popularity contest and, unfortunately, those with the most money to spend on expensive threads and most resemble our societal ideal are winning by a landslide. It’s easy to become a little disillusioned when I check out Lookbook.nu and notice that those with the most “hype” are usually white, thin and consider mixing a thrift store belt with $300 Jeffrey Campbell shoes super edgy and innovative. Yawn.
But in a world where the fashion industry is dominated by body ideals that can be pretty tough to accomplish, it’s refreshing that there are plenty of curvy and plus sized fashionistas who are pretty much telling the status quo to shove it. Here are 7 style bloggers who look awesome, are awesome and prove that when it comes to amazing style, size doesn’t matter.
