The Duggar family from "19 Kids and Counting" is very well-known for their continuous expanding of their family, as well their strong and public faith. Even though the original show was cancelled, the spin-off series following the older Duggar children, “Counting On,” has also been a big hit with believers.
As many Duggar fans know, the celebrity family follows very conservative values. Women in the family are expected to dress modestly, including keeping their legs and shoulders covered.
Intouch Weekly mentioned that these values relate to honoring their husband with the way they portray their bodies to others, and more importantly, to honor God. However, Jinger Duggar has strayed from the “typical” Duggar dress code multiple times.
Earlier this summer, Jinger’s outfit sparked controversy when she wore sleeveless tops and pants, instead of long dresses or skirts. She sparked controversy again in August after her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, posted a photo of Jinger wearing skinny colored jeans and a pair of Jordans.
See Jeremy Vuolo’s Instagram post below. He added the caption, “Her first pair of J's.” (Note: The first photo shows Jinger's sneakers; please click the arrow on the right hand side of the image to see the picture of Jinger's "controversial" outfit.)
Fans immediately responded to his photo; some were outraged, while others praised her for "going against her family." One user wrote, “Love the new fashions you're rocking! You always look modest and tasteful and I'm glad you're branching out a bit. I'm sure there are a lot of haters out there but God knows your heart and loves you beyond all imagining.”
Another user commented, “I don't know why people criticize Jinger and say she's rebelling for changing her style of dressing,” targeting the many critics of Jinger’s outfit choice.
