I feel like one of the most insidious ways plus size style blogging has been shaped by fatphobia is our collective fear of posting more relaxed looks. & it’s not an unfounded fear – god knows, the beauty standards fat women are held to are a huge weight to carry, even for those of us who reject them wholeheartedly – so it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that we feel a pressure to constantly be showing our most polished selves.
That’s why, today, I wanted to share a genuinely casual outfit. This has basically been my go-to look for the past few weekends because it’s practical, flexible & easy – plus it makes me feel great.
This outfit also features some of my favourite items from ASOS Curve at the moment. I haven’t been loving their latest releases but they’re still my go-to brand for classic pieces which I know I’ll wear again & again.
This ASOS Curve Denim Jacket with Borg Collar in particular is incredible & currently on sale for just £27.50. Seriously – rich blue denim, faux sheep skin collar, relaxed fit & fully-lined – why doesn’t everyone already own this?
I’ve spoken before about this oversize striped shirt but it’s still a firm favourite & I’m already eyeing up this grey version. These black denim shorts are a few years old but they seem to come back year on year, & they’re so comfortable (stretch denim, yes please) I’d definitely recommend picking a pair up.
What are your go-to weekend looks? & do you ever share them online?
