What is Wildfang?
In June of 2018, First Lady Melania Trump wore a jacket emblazoned with the words “I really don’t care. Do U?” Days later, clothing brand Wildfang responded and went viral with its “I Really Care” collection, a send-up of the controversial jacket. The proceeds of that collection generated a donation of over $250,000 for immigration legal services provider RAICES.
Endeavors like these are at the heart of Wildfang’s mission. Driven by the values of its 35-strong team of employees, Wildfang has made a name for itself as an ethically driven fashion brand. Its cornerstone “Wild Feminist” collection has been with them since they were founded in 2013 with new pieces constantly being added. Wildfang is consistently looking to give back having donated over half a million dollars since its inception to various charities such as PERIOD. The Menstrual Movement, She Should Run, Southern Poverty Law Center, and more, with campaigns often inspired by newsworthy events.
CEO Emma Mcilroy, COO Julia Parsley, and creative director Taralyn Thuot began the brand in 2013 as a way to expand women’s options and tailor a more androgynous style to fit women’s bodies. Mcilroy told Business Insider:
Women’s fashion felt very restrictive for me, and gender roles don’t really make sense at all in clothing as far as I’m concerned. I wanted to smash that, and in doing so we realized there are a lot of other rules that need to be broken for women. That includes how they show up in society, the jobs they get to do, and the way they’re represented.
Why we love Wildfang
As a queer person with a very masculine style, my discovery of Wildfang felt critical to my style expression.
I tend to wear a lot of men’s clothing, but more often than not, the clothes are not tailored to my body. The sleeves are always too long, the shoulders too wide, and there’s never enough room in the hips. But Wildfang takes items of clothing that aesthetically look like “men’s” styles, and adjusts the measurements so they work for women.
Our favorite pieces
When I first tried on one of the brand’s “Ultimate Button Ups,” I was shocked that a shirt that fit my style could actually fit my body. For years I was used to cobbling together a wardrobe from men’s departments, women’s departments, and even children’s departments, full of pieces that fit well enough but were never exactly right. Wildfang changed all that. These clothes were made exactly for me.
Wildfang has also encouraged me to expand my comfort zone when it comes to fashion. In the past, I would shy away from exploring new styles because I hated trying on clothes that I knew wouldn’t fit right. Now that I know these clothes are more likely to actually fit me, I’m more willing to try them on and take a bit of a risk.
Case in point: the WF Workwear Pant ($50). I’ve always envied folks who can pull off the workwear look, but I never thought I was bold enough to be one of them. Then these pants got dropped in my lap, and, twist my arm, I had to test them out for this article. I wound up falling in love with them, so I nabbed the matching jacket too which has since been slightly redesigned, but the Workwear Chore Coat ($128) is a great alternative that’ll give you a similar look in a slightly longer silhouette. I can pull off the workwear look, and I look dang good doing it, if I do say so myself.
If you want to take your workwear look to the next level, the Workwear Coveralls ($188) should be high on your list. Like the Workwear Pant, I was initially hesitant to take the plunge, but once I tried them on and realized how comfy they were and how confident they made me feel, there was no turning back. Though I haven’t tried Wildfang’s Overalls ($168), my partner swears by them and they’ve become a staple of her wardrobe.
In addition to its in-house brand, Wildfang regularly collaborates with huge names in menswear, like Obey, Volcom, and RCVA. Wildfang has encouraged these brands to take some of its pieces and modify them for women without compromising any of the original aesthetic. I have several pieces from the Publish x Wildfang collaboration that came out some time ago that remain some of my favorite things to wear.
Whether you’ve had a hard time making traditional menswear work for your body and want some clothing that finally fits properly, or you just want to add a masculine edge to your wardrobe, Wildfang has incredible options across the size and gender spectrum at modest price points.
Plus, its clothing is consistently modeled by people across the size spectrum, and it shares what sizes the models are wearing as well as their measurements, taking some of the frustrating guesswork out of online shopping.
I consider myself lucky to have discovered Wildfang, and I can’t wait to shop its next launch.
