Your Guide to Creating a Plus-Size Wardrobe

“Love Thy Self, Love Thy Body”

When we were younger, it was rather normal for us to log onto social media or watch TV and just see skinny socially acceptable bodies staring back at us. The narrative has changed over the past few years, and the body-positivity movement has since crept into society's consciousness, sparking a mini-revolution in body image and self-acceptance.

There are more opportunities for people who exist in their bodies to thrive as we begin to see women who we relate with shown on TV in a good manner rather than merely as stereotypes. Since then, there has been a surge in the number of plus-size labels, as well as a mix of high-end and mainstream designer brands expanding their sizes to fit a broader size spectrum. 

Now we can safely say we can have options we choose from, building a fashionable plus-size wardrobe is not a difficulty or a challenge. All you need are a few must-have basics on how to combine your wardrobe's pieces in ways that are both seasonally appropriate and body-flattering.
