Frocktober is back and the first thing you need to do is get registered to get loud for ovarian cancer. It's a silent killer that too often gets overlooked. What have frocks got to do with ovarian cancer? It's a creative, fun way to raise urgently-needed funds and raise awareness while channelling creative flare through favourite frocks and being a Frocktober Girl.
For a day, a week, just on weekends, or for the whole month of October, check out some popular ways to frock up on the website via ideas and resources provided, or get creative and design your own challenge. Get the FAQs here. What's a frock if you can't show it off; hence be sure to recruit as many friends and family as you can to participate and make it a whole lot of fun, while doing good. You could even get the men to help a sister out.
Whether you choose to wear 31 different dresses or try choosing a few dresses to style differently for 31 days, this is the all-in challenge. Make sure you take some time to plan your wardrobe in advance so that you have your loudest, brightest and most wonderful Frocks and outfits ready to go from October 1st!
Getting #FrockedUp means different things to different people. For the ultimate frock collectors, it could mean wearing 31 dressed in 31 days or wear one dress in many ways - for the accessory buffs and slow-fashion conscious. You could also create your own masterpiece if you're a Frock maker, or simply don a gorgeous gown at an event. Why not get creative and experiment with clashing patterns and textures or get into that bright blazer or power-suit. Swooshy skirts with deep pockets could also be a way to make a statement.
Get out of your comfort zone or lean into your signature style, it's about the clothes you wear starting important conversations about ovarian cancer and raising funds to support research. How will you frock up this year? Keep your social media busy during Froctober to keep everyone informed and excited about your fundraiser. What fun to post your Frocktober outfit of the day using the hashtags #Frockober2021 #ocrf or use some of the ready-made tiles on the website to share information about ovarian cancer, or promote your fundraising.
