The sun is coming out, the weather is warming up, and there are flowers everywhere. Even dedicated goths are sporting a bit of color in honor of this beautiful, fruitful season. It’s spring, and this is the season for ultra-feminine looks that mimic the flush of the first blooms and intensify as we move into summer.
Color can be a bit intimidating for those of you who are more comfortable sticking to a neutral palette. If neutrals are your thing, more power to you. But if you merely default to a neutral palette because vivid colors are intimidating, let’s unpack that.
As plus-size people, we get the message that we’re not supposed to shine. We’re not supposed to draw attention to ourselves or be loud. Few things are louder than a brightly painted pout which emphasizes every word and idea that comes out of your mouth. Gazes cannot be averted when your eyes are lined with attention-grabbing colors or gleaming with glitter.
