fashion ‘I’m a plus-size woman and these are the 5 fashion rules I’m following in 2024.’ Shannen Findlay

Alright, real talk for a moment. 

The world of fashion hasn’t always been an inclusive place. Actually, since we’re being real, it still isn’t. 

But we’ve entered an era where fashion no longer has a size limit and since we’re being honest (as mentioned above), I’ve decided to redefine what style means to me.

That means I’m drawing the curtains back and getting even more real about what ideals I’m taking into 2024 and what I’m leaving behind — because there are so many rules and I simply don’t have enough time to follow all of them.

And with all that being said, I must say that there is absolutely no pressure to heed my words and adopt them for yourself. We all have different ideas about what looks good on who. So when I say, ‘Do you,’ I truly mean that. 

Now let’s get on with it! 

Here are the fashion rules I’m following in 2024 as a plus-size woman.

1. I’m not buying anything that can’t be worn more than a few times.

I fell into a hole a few years ago where I had a package arriving at my door every week filled with clothes I didn’t even like. I’d wear an outfit once for a photo (or hundreds) and then obsess over who had seen me in it and what event I could wear said outfit to next without anyone figuring out I’d already worn it before.
