Neave Dare is an influencer from Essex finding her niche in the social media sphere. With so many gorgeous looks, she has that English "soft touch" predisposition. It comes across as humility and decency that make her quite an interesting personality to follow along with.

As a content creator, Neave's large social orbits formed by doing try-on haus for various clothing lines (and some interesting accessories). Socially speaking, Neave Dare has been a notable success. Like other influencers, Neave has leveraged this niche to build her fanbase, interact with her followers, and even give them something to genuinely connect with. But first, I want to talk about Neave's try-on hauls, especially the ones done her and other high-end influencers.

Neave Dare wearing her signature Gucci pendantNeave Dare is a medium-profile influencer, at least by my standards. As far as I know, she has about 10,000 YouTube subscribers, which is not so much for an influencer.

You know what that means? She has not yet contracted the celebrity ego syndrome ( I mean the kind of disease where celebrities are put under pressure to conform to some ideal standards and paint an ideal image for their huge fandom). I can say the same for her Instagram, which has about 150,000 followers ( she follows a lot of people, too!). Being of English origin, something I noticed from her accent, she is alluring, especially to people west of the Atlantic ( you know, the Americans with an English accent!). Neave Dare is barely in her 20s and has been quite a success for her age, something that I can attribute to her intelligence, brilliance, and beauty (don't worry, it gets better).

Getting To Know Neave Dare's Social Media

Neave Dare smiling in a green two-piece swimsuitI have never been particularly a huge fan of try-on hauls, despite their growing popularity and being the hit thing. Hear me out, and I have to be hones about this: not being a fan is an understatement; the actual word is I despise them- a bigger cringe. My main reasons? Pushing consumerism and fast fashion culture is not even on my list. I can't generally stand a few seconds of seeing some content creator or celebrities talking about what they both at x and y brand, how they like it, and such talks. As a matter of fact, these videos or reels have never made any sense to me. I have a hard time trying to see what is entertaining about some content creator going through a pile of outfits or accessories (and whatever I used to think they do).

Well, that was until recently; see, this far, you can tell I am not a fashion enthusiast, and it explains my hardwired contempt for content creators who take it to show their fans the latest and coolest trends. See, at the beginning of easter, my niece was visiting; she is a teenager, twelve years old. She is a shy type, and I noted she is the kind to find it hard to fit in among her peers. Something about her self-esteem and social anxiety: as a good uncle, I took matters into my own hands; I knew getting her closet updated and "cool" would give her self-esteem the so much-needed jumpstart. I mentioned not being a fashion enthusiast, and you can already tell how much of a struggle it was going to be trying to match her looks with the kids she admires from TikTok. I didn't even have a clue about the best boutique around; even if I did, I don't think I would have survived five minutes of finding the right outfit, fitting, judging the looks, and so on and forth. That process takes days, even for experts; it would take at least two weeks of fishing through the stores to get just two sets of the right outfit. So, unfortunately, a visit to the physical store was ruled out. How about checking those online catalogues? I mean the sites where they showcase the clothes, and you have to select them based on size! About that, the last time I had an outfit delivered, it was an utter disappointment, and trying to replace it or get a refund was an even bigger nightmare. That was a huge no. I don't have that much money, and easter was not far off.

Neave Dare is known for her taste in clothesI was cornered and thought to myself, how about watching those Neave Dare try-on hauls? We might pick a few outfit matches and use that to make purchases from whatever channels we could land on. See, I already knew getting a good set of outfits was the most challenging part; getting the right size or a store was not so hard ( though hard enough to be a risky gamble). A quick search on "easter try-on hauls" and YouTube did what it did best. There are so many results- so many matching results.

Except that it was not as easy. Five videos down the line, I realized that these try-on hauls were, by far, worse than I had believed. Well, for a fact, my niece is not an ideal body size. The searches between "for kids "and "adults" only led us to a bunch of exceptionally good-looking models and content creators. Those outfits looked good on them. Everything they said about was how good the outfits were, and in some cases, it was openly the opposite. But that was not all; the camera lighting, post edits, makeup, and all that made everything look exceptionally perfect. We admired how they looked but were smart enough to know that it was unwise to believe my niece would look nearly half as good. I did not want to put her through another emotional torture and myself through another wasted time and finances. There is something else- these try-on hauls were heavily promoting whatever brand they got the outfit from. Well, I understand they have to get paid for their time, but the promotion was too blatant. It made me think that try-on hauls were no better than the traditional high-end brands using beautiful models to market their looks. In the real world, not everyone is built like a world-class model. We thought try-on hauls would fix this. I kept asking myself, where is the authenticity if even our low-level content creators are much into promoting ideal body appearances, marketing for the brands that sponsored them, and never giving honest reviews on how the outfits made them feel? I hated try-on hauls even more, and our shopping experience ended with that.

Are Neave Dare's Try-on Hauls Better Than The Rest?

Let us face it: I do not like try-on hauls purely on the grounds of lack of authenticity from the content creators themselves. I am talking about large ring lights, well-lit rooms, heavily edited videos, and highly curated personal physiques, which are by far unrealistic standards even for people who are trying to draw inspiration from these tastes. I can add on the promotional aspects. Well, everyone already has their "place," and there is a good chance the brand being promoted is not even available in most viewers' regions. Obviously, they should not cut the hand that feeds them by sidelining their sponsors, but there is a need to make it less obvious to the eyes of the viewers. We are looking for that personal authenticity in reviews. I can't say much about consumerism culture and sustainable buying. I have bought so many things in the past that I did not actually like and ended up throwing, and the purchase was not even driven by a try-on haul I watched. But you catch my drift.

Neave Dare delivers a different, more authentic experience. She is charming, self-effacing, and surprisingly genuine.

Is that supposed to mean that we are better off spending a day at the thrift store looking for a single outfit?

Not even ordering from a trusted place is that good. The fact is chances of making a purchase on an outfit that ends up disappointingly bad are still there, wherever the motivation came from. For people like me, choosing the right outfit is the real challenge. Much as I hate to try on hauls, I see having a real person whose background I can trace (atleast by social media). It is easier to define their body sizes compared to the models' brands on their websites. While the comments are mostly neutral, they are a good starting point for knowing how the outfit looks and feels. I see it as more time- and cost-efficient than taking a whole day at the thrift store. They are entertaining, too, especially if you are a fashion enthusiast. There is just a line that needs to be drawn between soliciting likes, comments, and viewership in exchange for sponsorship gigs and influencers trying to help their fans who struggle with picking outfits.

There Is Hope For Neave Dare! A Way to Break the Runway Mold

Yes! I do look at a lot of these try-on hauls with high contempt; a lot of influencers either get carried away with self-obsession at the expense of having a very interactive presentation on what the outfit is actually like. I never last longer than 8 seconds looking at those ones. They call it self-love and something about body positivity, but there are limits! Limit!

Apart from that, there are influencers who are doing very recommendable work when it comes to try-on hauls. Before writing this, I had to make sure that my beliefs and take-on try-on hauls were not biased. In my searches and scheming to try to find one who does not conform to this "stereotypical view on try-on hauls," I was disappointed to find one, and even more disappointing that I did not have to search that hard. And this is why Neave Dare piqued my interest.

Why Are Neave Dare's Try on Hauls Worth Watching?

My first video was her  All New Summer Haul Huge Shein Try on Haul posted on YouTube. The first notable thing about the video is her camera positioning and room lighting. I have to admit that I am not much of a videography expert, but it is easy to tell a video recorded using a smartphone, with no try pod stands and no extra professional lighting gear. There was not much makeup or any notable enhancements on her looks. I easily made out that this was one of those rare, raw, made, and authentic videos. There was no hint of scripting or excessive editing to enhance the video. Just a little girl being natural and real with her audience. I had talked about try-on-haul influencers being heavy on promoting their sponsors and how that takes away the authenticity when it is made too obvious. On my first watch of this video, I did not even focus on the name and missed the part where she mentioned that Shein sponsored her outfits that day. That was exceptional.

Before getting into her first look, Neave makes an effort to inform her audience about her body size and the range of clothes that can fit her. This is exceptionally brilliant as, for many people, it is hard to gauge how the outfit would look like on them without the body size information; she also takes her time to introduce the basics, something I find very interactive and engaging. She is a talker, and that is exactly what is needed for an honest review; I would prefer a talker over a much-show person.

In the video, when trying on the blue corset top, one noticeable technique and something I find very brilliant is how she balances showing her outfit and giving her personal reviews. This is the point: a lot of influencers get carried away and overdo one side, and I would say most do overdo the showing part.

In her second review, the top appears to fit perfectly nicely on her, atleast from a viewer's perspective. But she goes ahead and makes a negative comment about how it makes her feel. She is also honest about the potential wardrobe embarrassment moments that the outfit can cause her in public spaces- something that I don't think an average influencer trying to promote a brand would do. This is exceptional, and it is exactly what made me rule out that she is authentic. Her comments and personal takes generally seem to portray the looks for what they are and what they make her feel. She still leaves room for her viewers who feel otherwise, making an intricate balance between honest reviews and promoting the brand.

Neave Dare's expert make-up touchesI observed the same trend when she was reviewing the skater skirts. Neave seems to have a gorgeous body, but she is still humble and sensitive enough to admit that she has gained some weight and does not look as good as she used to before that ( A hard hit to take). She even admits that she does not feel comfortable in skirts or dresses, so she goes ahead to try on the skater skirts. I think she still rocks in it; anyone would feel so. However, her choice to talk about how it makes her feel and how her body changes have affected her confidence resonates well with the majority of her audience. This is pure brilliance as it brings her down to the level of her audience, who struggle with body insecurities. It makes them feel normal and such that it is a universal feeling not even their idolized influencers are immune to. Tell me, if that is not authentic, what could it be? This modesty is observable in the rest of her reviews.

I checked through Neave's other try-on haul videos. There is one she did in January 2024, and it seems to be one of the most recent videos; you can check it out on YouTube. I have to admit that I had my suspicions that maybe the previous video was from the time she had not advanced much in try-on hauls and, therefore, could not invest much in professional video gear. But this recent video shows that she has retained her modesty from two years back. She shot the video in her small living room and used natural lighting as well, but still no hint of any extra professional filming. Neave's review of the outfit still shows her honest opinion, and she takes an extra effort to critique the quality of the materials used, how the looks make her feel, and her personal recommendations. Unfortunately, I managed to watch about four of Neave Dare's try-on videos, each no shorter than 15 minutes.

Final Take on Neave Dare

Neave Dare is an exceptionally beautiful and lively influencer, and not in a way that her style and approach to try-on haul videos resonate with my expectations, but in every manner, she balances the entertainment, information, and creativity aspects of the content creator. As a content creator, I find her work exceptionally creative and a much-needed break from the stereotypical try-on haul videos. Neave Dare is intelligent, creative, and very engaging in the way she talks, something that her viewers must find engaging and stimulating. The most important part is the authenticity. She did a great balance of giving the credits and acknowledging her sponsors, but again kept it in mind that her viewers have different and unique needs, all of which she properly attended to.

For uptight and boring people like me, it takes a lot for a trendy or viral culture to impress me. I admit to having this skewed bias toward content creators; I tend to think of them as unoriginal and one-dimensional, which, for me, past their looks and, most of the time, curated appearances, they don't have so much going on. When I come across pure brilliance, intellect, and creativity like Neave's approach, it helps me restore my hope in humanity.
