Fashion Fears. You know the clothes and different styles that you will never wear or try because you’re scared of how they will look on you. That daring red dress in your closet. That really pretty vintage top that you saw in the thrift shop, but don’t think will match your style. Dia&Co, a plus size woman’s clothing company, have this amazing event called Try-Day Friday, where they challenge themselves to get out of their style comfort zone.
My outfit that I’m wearing is a vintage look that I’ve always wanted to try, but never had the guts to. Dia&Co inspired me to dress out of my style zone. I’m not the type of girl to wear ripped jeans. I never really found them appealing and my mom hated them. I got these pair as a gift from a family friend and I loved them because they were something new, but I didn’t feel too exposed.
I was most insecure about my red crop top because of the area of skin that was left bare. I have a few crop tops, however I normally don’t wear them. To me it’s just weird to be having bare midriff and I feel like people are staring at it. Pairing my crop top with my bomber jacket definitely made me feel less insecure. Also, the color combination is so striking with olive-green against a bright red.
Since I was going all out, I decided to throw on a bandana to complete the look. I’m so glad that I choose to wear this outfit. I loved the 90s and early 2000s vibes I gave off. Switching up your style for a day doesn’t mean that you have to be showing a lot of skin, it just means wearing something different that you normally wouldn’t. If I could be bold and then you all can too. Face your fashion fears and be yourself.
