#Fatshion blogs to follow
Think being a size 18 is stopping you from rocking a crop top? Need some convincing to try a onesie? (Actually who doesn’t need help with that one?) Or want to stock up on some luxe basics but don’t know who makes the best trousers in a size 22? For all your big girl style questions, turn to these bloggers who are plus-sized and love it.
Based out of San Francisco, Tanesha Awasthi launched her blog in 2011. Her style is best described as ladylike with an urban twist, so you’ll see her twirling in full skirts, polo necks, skater dresses and the occasional pair of ripped jeans. Plus, she has managed to translate her chic personal style into a plus-size clothing line, Girl With Curves. If you’re looking for ballroom skirts, slogan sweatshirts and flared jersey dresses, this should be your go-to. The best bit? She ships worldwide!
If you’re veering towards anything vintage, bookmark Ragini Nag Rao’s A Curious Fancy right away. Bloomers, Peter Pan collars and pinafores – her wardrobe is straight out of a ’50s-inspired Pinterest board. She may pull off a striped romper flawlessly and her affinity for hats is just adorable, but what makes Rao’s blog a truly wonderful read are her deeply feminist opinions and an honest, uninhibited view of her body.
Not sure if you’re swimsuit ready? Turn Gabi Gregg into your poster girl – she famously showed off her curves in a ‘fatkini’ shoot with other plus-sized women. Follow her for inspiration on street fashion, from donning an oversized tropical print T-shirt with leather shorts to pulling a Rihanna in a see-through mesh shirt.
Colour, prints, patterns – you name it and fashion stylist Hayley Hughes has worn it. Hughes taps into her experiences of living between Japan and Australia to mix and match busy patterns with neon colours. Kooky accessories, coloured tights and playful make-up complete her expertly curated, Tokyo-inspired look.
