With this week being the last of our focus on all things independence, we’re on the look out for the pieces that’ll bring you some style freedom from the regular fashion followings wherever your headed for Halloween – taking inspiration from the wardrobe of one of our favourite songstresses, plus a Curvy Tbt with influences from about the globe…
Steal Her Style: Erica Atkins-Campbell
This week, we’re stealing the style of Erica Atkins-Campbell – a curvy singer that’s more popularly known as one half of gospel powerhouse Mary Mary. With the singer and TV star recently flaunting her independence by launching a solo career, her style has evolved in bounds to really show her determination in stepping into the limelight alone – and we at SPICE have been watching and taking note for our own wardrobe too…
Never afraid to move between neutral hues to beautiful bold colours, this mother of three knows exactly what works for her and her curves, and is the epitome of class, rightfully earning her a place in many best dressed lists.
We love her looks as they encompass the three ‘S’s all curvy women should aim for with their ensembles: sophistication, stylishness and sass! Hence, we’re looking to steal her style with this figure-hugging, angelic white dress – a piece that’ll make you stand out for all the right reasons. Or why not go for a pair of the star’s gorgeous high-waisted trousers, if a hint of masculine-chic is more your thing?
Try any of these pieces and you’ll have the songstress’ independent style attitude down to a tee;
Curvy TBT: Iman McDonnaugh Plus Model Mag’s September’14 Issue
Who loves a good editorial? We do! Especially this one from Plus Model Magazine‘s September’14 issue, starring new curvy model on the block, Iman McDonnaugh.
Showing us different style influences from around the globe, the Trinidadian, Italian, Jamaican and Irish beauty draws from her cultures to highlight some beautiful things to wear – from evoking the romance of Italy in a stunning Roberto Cavalli maxi, to emulating the cool beach breezes of the Caribbean in Baby Phat and BCBG MazAzaria.
The six-page spread, titled “Portrait of a Global Muse” was styled by renowned celebrity stylist Susan Moses, who has worked with stars such as plus size model Emme and actress Mo’nique, and is a great mix of casual and luxury.
