PLUS Model Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Madeline Jones and Blog Editor Marcy Cruz Take On Simply Be’s #EmbraceCurves Challenge
Last month, our Editor-in-Chief Madeline Jones and our Blog Editor Marcy Cruz attended the Anna Scholz For Simply Be #EmbraceCurves Event in New York City. You can find that event recap here.
As part of the event, they were each gifted the Jewel Print Jacket and matching Jewel Print Pencil Skirt from Anna Scholz’s line for Simply Be (see below pic) and were invited to wear one piece or both and style it in their own unique way as part of Simply Be’s #EmbraceCurves challenge. The person with the most blog comments and likes on Instagram wins the challenge. To find us on Instagram, click here.
Maddy opted to wear the skirt and style it her own way whereas Marcy decided to wear the jacket. Both pieces have a distinctive, pretty print that is versatile so it was interesting to see the final outfits that Maddy and Marcy came up with.
Maddy styled her pencil skirt with a simple black button-down top and yellow skinny belt for a pop of color:
Marcy paired her jacket with a simple v-neck black cocktail dress, black wide belt and a teal clutch for a pop of color:
The #EmbraceCurves challenge was a fun and empowering experience for both ladies because styling a piece that you did not personally choose requires thinking outside of the fashion box, sometimes breaking some fashion rules and embracing your curves to the point where you know how to style an outfit to flatter and embrace your wonderful curves. Every plus size woman has that opportunity. Many of us avoid prints at all costs and may bypass a beautiful piece like this jacket or skirt when it could actually be the key piece in creating a fabulous outfit. All it takes is being fearless enough in fashion to go for it!
