I love fashion! There’s always something new to see, try on, and dream about, from runway looks to window shopping at the mall. Putting together styles, colors and patterns is so much fun! However, there has been an ever-present gap in the fashion world for women with curves. Fortunately, this is starting to change. More and more brands are starting to provide plus-size merchandise and include plus-size models in their marketing campaigns.
As the fashion industry starts to slowly embrace women with curves, there is an advent of plus-size fashion bloggers that are making influential waves. These bloggers provide style inspiration, fashion tips and trends, shopping guides and how-to tutorials. In addition, they provide motivation and encourage women to be fearless and love themselves no matter their size. I hope you find inspiration, motivation and enjoyment while reading these blogs. I know I have.
Here is my list of 7 plus-size fashion blogs to follow in 2015.
