Pleats are a fat girl no-no

January 31, 2013

Because they make you look broader and fatter, right?

Yeah, fuck that.

Not only am I wearing a pleated skirt, but it’s a SHINY pleated skirt!

What on earth is everyone’s obsession with telling women how to dress? I’ll never understand it.

If you want my opinion, you can wear a pleated skirt no matter what your size is. If you’re worried about it making you look bigger or bulky or unflattering, I find that sizing down actually helps because the pleats sit better (or maybe closer?) on your curves. That’s what works for me! Try everything and figure out a way to make it work, but don’t deprive yourself of being trendy just because of what someone else said.

  • haha, for a second i came on here thinking, what!? I love pleats haha. I like this skirt, and forget those rules…can't stand the rules they have in place for us plus women. We can wear what we want!

  • For a second I was wondering where you were going with the title. I hate it so much when people tell other people how they should dress. I recently went to a blogger meet where they focussed on hair & it was terrible how the hairstylist kept telling us that oval is the 'idea' face shape, people who have it are lucky & the rest of us have to get haircuts that make our face look oval… WHAAT? How terrible it would be if everyone had the same face shape.
    Love the look, I could see myself wearing this too because you're wearing flats! Pretty sunglasses. 🙂

  • i was wondering where you were going with the title but you showed us!
    i really hate when people say you cant wear this or that…come on….there is always a way to make it work!

    Totally love this look, especially because I have seen it before – bookmarked it, and saved a picture. And recently came across an Instagram, and remembered the combination… Bee wanting a skirt like this so bad. Love everything here!
