Women Are Showing Off Their Fashion Sense To Prove Size Is Just A Number

by Talia Koren

I can finally say I've found my favorite hashtag on Twitter.

This week, ladies of all sizes used the hashtag #WeWearWhatWeWant to show off their amazing outfits and looks, despite what "society" might tell them they can or can't wear.

Seriously, this is a great reminder we need to throw the goddamn fashion rules out the window. Rules are made to be broken, right?

Well, these ladies don't give AF anymore. They will wear what they want, and they won't be stopped. This type of movement should be more than a trend. It should be the new rule.

Wear what you want, and forget the old rules.

You can wear shorts that stop short of where your hand falls on your leg, and you can wear short dresses and skirts at any age you want.

The trend was started by Simone Mariposa, a 23-year-old blogger from LA. She started tweeting about how she was done listening to other people who said what she should or shouldn't wear.

She, along with many other women, are done having their images defined by other people.

The response on Twitter was awesome.

Listen to the ladies of Twitter. Wear what you want, and don't listen to anyone who tells you otherwise.

Citations: Ellen Scott for 26 Jul 2016 3:10 pm The #WeWearWhatWeWant trend will inspire you to forget dumb style 'rules' We wear what we want. (Picture: Twitter/GraceFVictory) When you're a woman, you get bombarded with a lot of 'rules' about what you should and shouldn't wear. Don't wear short shorts if you don't have a thigh gap. Don't wear prints if you're curvy. If you're over 30, give up the mini skirts. All of those rules are total bullsh*t. And we're tired of it. So we welcome the #WeWearWhatWeWant trend with arms open and wardrobes ready. The trend was started by Simone Mariposa, a 23-year-old plus-size blogger. She started to urge her followers to share selfies with the hashtag after seeing a story about a plus-size woman who'd been criticised for what she was wearing. Simone told Buzzfeed that she related to the woman's experience, and knew that other plus-size women would relate to it too. And so she started a hashtag, #WeWearWhatWeWant, and encouraged women to use it to share pictures of themselves wearing whatever the f*** they wanted – especially clothing they'd been told wasn't acceptable for them to wear. The response has been glorious. Loads of women have been sharing stunning photos of themselves looking and feeling incredible. And the hashtag has now become a lovely place on the internet, filled with body-positivity and acceptance. It's brilliant. More of this, please. F*** trying to make people feel bad about what they're wearing. We wear what we want.
