About three months ago, I went through something akin to a quarter-life crisis. I wanted to reinvent myself and give myself a “glow-up” as all the cool kids say! So I decided that I was bored of wearing black and navy all the time and I wanted to switch up my aesthetic. Ever since I’ve been able to choose my own outfits, I haven’t had a specific style. I used to just buy and wear what I like so it was a mishmash of casual, vintage and sometimes emo styles.
But what exactly was going to be my new look? I was tempted by the current e-girl look made popular by TikTok. I was very close to dawning the dyed strands of hair. However, after careful consideration, I decided it doesn’t fit my personality at all. I’m definitely not cool enough! And then I had a brainwave… What about pastels!
I’ve always loved pastel and muted shades but I’ve always been scared to wear them as that would mean me having to stand out. A fat girl’s biggest nightmare! Plus, I could never really find plus size clothing in pastel colours. That was until I started by purchasing my first few pieces of clothing. It was still very limited but here are some of my favourite shops to buy pastel plus size clothing from:
