There have been a lot of conversations lately among plus size bloggers about the fact that black women–especially darker skinned black women–are often left out of brand campaigns and media coverage, and I couldn’t agree more; we need to speak up because there should be much more inclusion and representation in this industry. This is obviously a huge issue worldwide, but it’s especially noticeable when it comes to entertainment and fashion. I know change is slow, and I think it’s important to celebrate the victories that are happening, but I thought one way to help spread the love would be to feature some of my favorites here, especially since it’s Black History Month. So without further ado, here’s a list of 16 curvy and black personal style bloggers that I adore!
I am purposely focusing on non-light skinned women here for the reason mentioned above. This list is by no means exhaustive! I kept almost publishing it and then remembering another person to add! Please feel free to leave more of your favorites in the comments.
