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
Let me tell you I was terrified to wear this outfit in public last night. Telling myself "you don't have the body for this" "you shouldn't be wearing this." Then I stepped back in the mirror and said "Jazzmyne you buggin. Rock that shit." And so I did?

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?
