16 Curve Fashion Bloggers To Give You All Of The Style Inspo
Love, love, LOVE.
Blogs are the first, best and easily the most inspiring place to look when it comes to a wardrobe refresh, an outfit overhaul, or just deciding which pair of shoes you should wear with that jacket, and right now it’s the plus-size, body-positive community which is totally slaying the style game.
The high street still has a long way to go with accommodating for all body types, but the blogging world and Instagram itself is full of beautiful gals of all shapes and sizes, who know their signature style AND how to own it. Best of all, there’s strictly no photoshop around these parts to dictate how you and your curves should be dressing - just head to toe incredible looks, motivational attitudes and a shitload of ace body positivity.
Here’s a quick rundown of 16 confident, killer fashion bloggers who are transforming the industry in 2017, one OOTD at a time.
1. Callie Thorpe // fromthecornersofthecurve.com (@calliethorpe)
Callie’s site is 100 per cent body shame free, and promotes the fact that guys and gals of any size should be able to enjoy fashion to the fullest. You’ll find dreamy leather jacket looks, an insane shoe collection, and the hair of dreams on Callie’s blog. Her looks are always paired with major lipstick and a huge smile too, meaning that not only does her style totally stand out, but her positivity radiates too.
2. Grace Victory // graciefrancesca.com (@gracefvictory)
You might know Grace from MTV UK’s Sex Squad series, her awesome YouTube channel or her hugely successful BBC documentaries - but as well as not being afraid to chat openly about taboo topics, let’s not forget that Grace’s wardrobe SLAYS by itself. The girl is proud of her shape and knows how to dress it, and the Style section of her website is pretty much a bible in affordable, on trend, curvy girl looks.
3. Unapologetically Paola // unapologeticallypaola.com (@chubbybabe_)
Think you can’t wear that bralette, playsuit or ripped jeans because of the stupid number on your size tag? Think again - and make sure you check out Paola’s fabulous fashion photography while you do it for extra confirmation. She takes all the usual ‘rules’ and proves that they’re totally ridiculous, piecing together wearable outfits that not only look super cute, but also promote empowering, inspiring body positivity and equality. YAS.

5. Gabi Gregg // gabifresh.com (@gabifresh)
Queen of sleek street style and OG self-made blogger, Gabi pretty much slays at taking inspiration from fashion-forward runway pieces, and turning them into effortless personal style - always with a cheeky flash of sexy skin.

Queen.
