Why We Love Modcloth In the Winter – An Empowering Style Guide For Every Body


It’s no secret that we love Modcloth. They were one of the first clothing labels to sign the ground-breaking anti-photoshop pledge created by the Brave Girls Alliance.

They are huge advocates of representing real women in all shapes and sizes, and that is something to promote any day!

With so many negative and harmful messages about body image forced upon women, it’s important emerging labels like Modcloth stand apart from the rest and lead the way for other up-and-coming designers to take stock of what is important with their brands. It is only about the bottom dollar? Or do you care enough about your customers to cater to them in order to build lasting relationships, healthier self-esteems and in turn even MORE money because of customer satisfaction and loyalty?

Seems like a no-brainer to us! So when Modcloth reached out to us to feature our favorite Winter items, we didn’t hesitate. Normally we aren’t the type of site to just promote straight fashion trends (unless there is an empowering or unique angle to it) but this gives us a chance to tell more of our readers just how important it is to support brands that support women of all sizes.

No matter where you live, Winter means something different to us all. We are based out of Los Angeles, CA so winter means 75 degree sunny days with a light breeze, that just about allows for ugg boots and sweaters when the sun goes down. For those in more Siberian temperatures, it means constantly keeping warm with various items of clothing and accessories.

Layering is a win-win for everyone, because it allows you to cater to your temperature surroundings, while also styling a look for yourself where you feel somewhat fashionable. We’ve put together a list of our favorite Modcloth items that make us feel fashionable AND empowered.
