Dare to Wear: Charlotte Tries Bodycon
We dared 3 team members to tackle their fashion fears in 2018. Meet Charlotte, our Senior Social Media Strategist and resident fashion “it-girl,” who always models the latest styles but shies away from anything bodycon. Check out what happens when she faced her fashion fear head-on.

What did you dare you to wear?I dared to wear bodycon pieces.
How do you feel after taking on your dare?Honestly, it was a lot more emotionally challenging than I had anticipated. I was glad I tried it, but it also made me consider the fact that you have comfort zones for a reason and that everyone moves at their own pace. If you want to try something new, go for it! If you’re comfortable where you are—in your style, health, relationships, career, etc.—it’s also okay to sit tight and enjoy that comfort.
Which style/look surprised you’re the most?I was most surprised by the Puff Sleeve Jacket and Ruched Miracle Skirt look. The skirt was very form fitting, but in a great way; it held in my curves, while the ruching was very visually forgiving.
Will you take more dares in 2018?Yes! I really want to up my accessory game in 2018. I know Coco Chanel’s age-old adage was “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off,” but in 2018 I’m challenging myself to look in the mirror and add one more accessory before I leave the house.
Get to know Charlotte: an ELQ&A
Go-to accessory? My 6lb rescue pup, Benjals—though she would argue that I’m her accessory.
One thing you always have in your bag? Lipstick! My current favorite is BITE’s multistick in Macaroon.
Your anthem track?“Oui” by Jeremih.
Wine or bubbly? I never turn down a glass of champagne!
Your next trip? I lived in Paris for four years in my early 20s so I’m planning on heading back sometime this year for a visit. A few of my Parisian friends have had babies (!) since I last visited in 2016, so I gotta go smush their cute little baby faces irl.
What are you most excited about in 2018? All the beautiful new ELOQUII clothes dropping this year!
