Style Thief: How to Dress Like Jazzmyne Robbins

Even if you don’t know Jazzmyne Robbins by name, you’ve probably seen her in a bikini. The BuzzFeed video producer and star made waves last year by documenting her first time wearing a two-piece as a plus-size woman, racking up millions of views and inspiring others to celebrate their own beach bodies. Robbins is a dynamo, a pal, a babe, and a personal fashion icon of yours truly. Here’s how to get her style.

Sex-Positive, Body-Positive Pieces

Robbins literally wears her convictions on her sleeve in queered-up, feminist as fuck pieces like fat-positive and anti-misogynist statement tees, and, of course, The Tata Top. You should too!

Sheer Shit

Plus-size people are supposed to cover up, say the rules — not that Robbins plays by those. Sheer, lightweight fabrics are just her ticket for showcasing every glorious, sexy, thoroughly human lump and bump.

Something A Little Dangerous

Whether it’s metallic details, leather-y looks, or fabric that’s slashed or bound together with laces, Robbins often has a spectacular Mad Max: Thunderdome-type thing goin’ on. Hot.

The Brighter, the Better

When she’s not swathed in black, the pendulum of Robbins’ aesthetic swings in exactly the opposite direction. Take a cue from her in these pieces, and never get lost in a crowd again.

A Sprinkle of Sporty Spice

The importance of comfort cannot be overestimated, and Robbins makes the athleisure look her own. After all, why work out when you could always work it?

  1. Pretty sure the bra she is wearing in the “something a little dangerous” section is this one from Torrid that I’m OBSESSED with: http://www.torrid.com/product/lace-up-bralette/10638299.html?cgid=intimates-bras-bralette-bandeau

    It comes in a few colors and now lace!!! I’m a walking Torrid commercial because I fucking love walking into a store where everything FITS and makes me feel cute and sexy.
