Unfortunately, we’re still often tethered down by the the more serious regulations of the bunch. Think: the gendered sections in stores designating where you browse. But when those constructs are challenged? The possibilities are endless.
Enter one "banana" shape, Jamey Jesperson, rejecting all the norms. Identifying as gender non-conforming, growing up meant they were restricted to shopping in the men’s section and told to wear clothing that wouldn’t accentuate their lengthiness and height. Sadly, many are tied down to the same limitations. Which is why breaking free from those restraints — and breaking down the whole concept of male, female, and the select few shapes of the body in the process — means clothing can take on an entirely new and exciting point of view.
Above, watch the magic that happens when “boy” clothes are swapped for colorful skirts, frilly selections, and bright options. Free of restrictions, Jamey's personality can take center stage. And, in case you had any questions, that’s totally a yes from us.
About F*ck The Fashion Rules
For generations, society has dictated that our bodies resemble food and that we should dress according to our shape. These fashion rules determined our go-to styles, what is and isn’t flattering, and what we should and should not put on our bodies. But it’s about time all these rules were broken — and we start dressing how we please. So, say goodbye to the body shape guidelines. Say goodbye to the clothing constraints and the garment restrictions. These individuals know a thing or two about wholly embracing themselves, head to toe. They’re breaking the mandate with everything from the outfits they throw together, to the aisles they shop in, and their confidence doing so. And it’s about time we all followed suit.
