In a huge shift recently, Old Navy made a change to how they do business. It really is welcome and amazing news.
First off, they’ve created a large section of gender-neutral clothing and they are marketed as such. This really makes people that identify as gender-fluid or neutral more comfortable when shopping at Old Navy. This is the case both online and in store.
Second, was in women’s-wear. Not only are plus sizes sold in the same department as standard sized clothing, but every piece is offered in ALL sizes up to size 30. And, AND, all pieces are the same price, regardless of size.
This is also true both in store and online (although size 30 is only available online for some reason).
So, no more dark cobwebbed corner of the store where plus sizes have a couple of racks of clothing. Also, no more modifications to the styles for plus sizes (which I never understood), and our wallets can breathe a sigh of relief since we pay the same price now!
It. Is. About. Time!
So, thank you Old Navy for doing this. I showed my support by shopping Old Navy for the first time in several years. I bought a couple of cute cropped tees and a pair of joggers. I cannot wait to just be able to go buy leggings for a good price when I need some new pairs! This really is much appreciated.
I recently got into cottagecore (once I realized that it is just a small step from goth). I really love the comfort and flowiness of it.
But, as a plus-size woman, how do you wear this without it looking too tent-like?
Well, the key is the accessories. I have three looks here that are a goth/cottagecore, but with accessories, I have drawn the eye away from the more voluminous areas so people take in the whole look. That way it doesn’t look just “baggy”.
