What is Dare to Wear all about? It’s about raising your voice to prejudice and abolishing all misconceptions against plus-size women. It’s about wearing what you want to wear, and not caring what anyone thinks. It’s about not compromising, because your body is beautiful and as worthy as any other body to dress in the types of clothes that make you feel good. Dare to Wear is a movement, and it starts with you.
They say you can’t, we say you CAN.
Here are some misconceptions that we can end together:
Plus size women can’t go sleeveless?
It’s summer, exercise your right to bare arms! Just look how incredible Tess Holliday looks in in this sleeveless top.
Style note: Adding a sleeveless vest over a tank is the perfect way to show off those arms while keeping a modern look!
Plus size women can’t wear print on print?
Guess again! Follow Melissa McCarthy and wear prints on prints on prints! You can wear one print all over or you can play with your prints and mix and match for a playful look.
Style note: There are no rules. You do you. But if you are looking for some tips here’s how to mix prints like a pro!
- Stay within the same colour family.
- Mix a busy print with a simpler pattern.
- Wear the same pattern in opposing colours (like white and black).
Plus size women can’t wear white?
Here’s an empowering photo of our model in *gasp* ALL WHITE! And guess what, she looks stunning!
Style note: when creating a layered look with multiple pieces try to wear the same shade of white from head-to-toe to create a bold statement.
It’s time to debunk these style myths!
