Cool Girl

I think it’s hard for me to pull off a sporty, cool girl look. Though I love androgynous fashion, I really struggle making that look my own. Anything tomboy-ish can be hard to interpret on a curvy body. Curves are, by nature, pretty feminine. But my style is my style, my shape doesn’t need to dictate my style. Every once in a while, I ditch the figure-embracing dresses and go for slouchy joggers.

I’m a cool girl, see? This is my ~street style~. (I’m trying to seem authentic here, go with it.)

Please don’t zoom in to see the cat hair on my pants. It is not cute.

If you feel like your shape dictates your style, I encourage you to challenge that. If you think that an oversized tunic and leggings are the best look for you to cover your butt and hide your tummy, try a girly structured fit and flare dress. If fit and flare dresses are the only silhouette you think works for your hips, try jeans and a slightly cropped top like this one that hits above hips. Dress for you, dress the style that you want to wear. But please, promise me you won’t compromise fit for style. There is nothing less attractive than a girl who clearly feels uncomfortable wearing clothes that are 2 sizes too small. Feel good in what you wear, the way you feel will show through the clothes.

 

Like always, a big thank you to my boyfriend for putting up with me trying on 40 outfits  and taking 10000 photos for me to only pick 5.
