Have you ever picked up something in a store, thought it was beautiful but then put it back because in the back of your mind you’re thinking ‘this just won’t suit me’? Whether it’s because you think you’re too big or too small or too tall or too short or too whatever for the outfit, you let it put you off buying an item you really loved. Well today we’re going to stop that from happening ever again as one woman makes it her mission to show the world that you can wear whatever you want!
Social media star, Alexa Phelece was sick and tired of never seeing plus sized models rocking the clothes she wanted to buy. That’s why she started her own campaign to show women that you can look good in any style at any size. She’s been posting images that compare her own look to that of a thinner model wearing the same outfits and we are loving them. However, Alexa had this to say about why both looks are amazing “Both are models – both are wearing the same swimsuit – LET’S NOT FORGET: BOTH are beautiful – BOTH should be treated equally – both should be able to love their bodies.” Here are some of our favourite items that look amazing on all women, no matter what size they are.
1. Bodycon dresses
Both of these dresses are gorgeous and they’re really flattering! It just goes to show that you shouldn’t be afraid to show off what you’ve got!
2. Animal print
You should never be afraid to wear animal print, it can look good on everyone! These outfits are completely different but still make leopard print look totally gorgeous. It’s all down to your own personal style!
3. Double denim
Okay, so double denim is a controversial choice to begin with, but if you love it then go for it! Denim’s huge right now, so go crazy!
4. Horizontal stripes
Has anyone ever told you not to wear stripes because they’ll make you look fat? Well ignore those people, they’re idiots and you can look amazing in stripes at any size!
5. Bright colours
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE to wear black, you might mistake me for Wednesday Addams if you met me, but that doesn’t mean you should too! If you’re a fan of all things colourful, go for it! The brighter the better!
6. Crop tops
To any haters out there who want to tell anyone larger than a size zero to stop wearing crop tops, I have some advice for you – go jump off a bridge because our crop tops look amazing!
Jumpsuits are comfy, a super easy way to create a whole outfit, and they look amazing on everyone. Fact.
8. Self confidence!
It doesn’t matter what season, occasion or even day of the week it is, self love is always in style! I truly believe that there’s no fashion choice you can’t rock if you wear it with confidence, so put on your favourite dress and work it, girl, because you are fabulous!
The swimsuit that started it all, here’s Alexa wearing the same swimsuit as the model advertising it and we think they both look totally perfect! So if you want to rock a bikini this swimsuit season but are worried about what people will think then stop it! Wear what makes you feel good, that’s what’s important!
