Fundie Fashion Risk: Jinger Duggar Dares To Wear a Mini Skirt During ‘Counting On’ Premiere

“Um, yeah. I wear what I want now. Deal with it.”

Jinger Duggar Vuolo continues to buck the super-modest fashion guidelines she was raised with!

Last year, Jinger became the first Duggar gal to forgo her family’s strict “Skirts and Dresses Only” rule by slipping on a pair of pants. During last night’s season premiere of Counting On, Jinger took it a step further by wearing a short tennis skirt and a sleeveless top!

This marks the first time one of the Duggar gals wore such a short skirt in public. (Jinger’s mother, Michelle Duggar, has discussed the family’s modesty standards in the past, stating that the girls were to be covered from “the neck to the knees” when it comes to clothing.)

‘Counting On’ viewers praised Jinger for taking yet another fashion risk (by Duggar standards, anyway!)

Get it, girl!

“Oh snap Jinger! Sleeveless shirt and a short skirt. You better work that outfit,” one person wrote on Twitter.

“Jinger in that tennis skirt… #Rebel #JimBobIsCrying,” another tweeted.

“Jinger looks so happy and beautiful,” another viewer wrote. “So happy to see her living life as a normal adult woman!”

Since marrying Jeremy Vuolo in November 2016, Jinger has demonstrated her independence from her family’s super-conservative dress and living standards. In April, Jeremy gave a sermon that seemed to address why he has no problem with his wife wearing less conservative clothing.

“It is your liberty as to whether you dress modestly with a modest pair of pants, or with a skirt, or with a T-shirt, or with a blouse,” Jeremy said during a December 18 sermon at Grace Community Church in Laredo, Texas. “It is not your liberty, women, to wear sensual, seductive clothing that is designed to draw the attention of your brothers.

“The emphasis of the gospel is not food or clothes,” Jeremy said in the sermon, according to Inquisitr. “Jesus does not save people to make them wear skirts.”

Jinger’s fashion risk-taking has already inspired her older sister, Jill Dillard to shuck the skirts and start wearing pants too. Jill is the only other Duggar girl to wear pants publicly, though; her other sisters and sisters-in-law are still sticking to sporting only dresses and skirts…for now.

  1. Jeremy was a great addition to the show, and I love that he has helped Jinger become genuinely happy! I’m sure both of you read these comments — now help Jana find a good man (if that’s what she wants), the way Ben and Jessa helped you!


  2. I didn’t wear short dresses or skirts, because when my mom or dad would take me out of a vehicle at church, my butt would hang out, if it was too short. For some reason, my mom never noticed that, and she said short hems were in. I actually like hems that are just above the knee I always felt better after I was back in my wheelchair..


  3. It is not your liberty, women, to wear sensual, seductive clothing that is designed to draw the attention of your brothers.

    I understand the “brotherhood of man” metaphor, but maybe this isn’t the best family to use it with.


  4. Well being covered from neck to knees didn’t keep them safe from their own brother while they slept, so yeah, I don’t blame these women for ditching the Jim Bob Little House on the Prairie look.


  5. She looks great, and completely appropriate. I’m glad she’s so happy. I hope all the Duggar kids live their lives to make themselves happy.


  6. Good job Jinger. Now I’m just waiting for Jana to buck the Duggar rules and get far away from Jim Bob and Michelle. C’mon Jana, you deserve so much more than dedicating your life to taking care of kids that aren’t yours! We want to see you happy too ?


  7. Holy shit! A Duggar knee! The time has come, The Ashley, that a Duggar girl may indeed actually brush knees with a male!


  8. OH NO! Her mini skirt will destroy marriages left, right and center! (If we believe her mom)

    xD

    YOU GO GIRL, more power to Duggar women, one less baby making machine!

    (I honestly would love to see Jana married one day. Cuz I’m sure she will be one of those ditching the rules too!)


  9. I think she looks great and still quite modest! Any man who looks at a knee and pops a woody has his own problems lol You do you Jinger 🙂 🙂


  10. She is a queen of her own kind. I like that girl. Could you imagine growing up in that family? She’s like, the ONE girl I was stoked for getting married. Like YAS girl run off to that hot ass man of yours and wear your miniskirts!
