Rachel Otis is a Senior Journalist and Photographer at Wear Your Voice Magazine. Currently she is producing weekly articles on Body Positive Fashion. In addition, this fashionista is a graduate student and nanny. Since meeting Rachel we've learned that Rachel keeps a busy schedule. Especially after reading her article featuring Rainbeau Curves on Wear Your Voice Magazine, she occupies her time by just being out and enjoying life. By the wy, we absolutely love how she styled herself in this article, she mixed pieces that we never even thought of! (read the article here for more outfit inspirations).
Rachel is the girl that Rainbeau Curves was designed for, who's day consist of going from school to work and to work out but who also has a fashionable style that cannot be compromised.
So below we worked with Rachel on a few outfits that work with her measurements and style.

OUTFIT 1 - Sunday Funday Fit
We love this outfit on Rachel (especially with her teal colored highlights in her hair)! Because she is so active she preferred to have the tank be fitted and the hoodie to fit more relaxed.
"I am a huge fan of this comfortable and cute pairing - these leggings are some of my favorite to be active in, hitting me perfectly at capri length, and again allows me to transition from a tennis game or riding my bike to getting some Sunday brunch or making a shopping pit-stop afterwards! This and all Rainbeau looks allow for layering, which is also one of my own personal fashion tricks of the trade - as is my old adage: "When in doubt pop your hood up and smile!".
OUTFIT 2 - Functional Fashion
Not a lot of people dare to try this three-piece print combination together. Only the fearless fashionista can rock this look, and Rachel makes it look effortless! The fit and feel of the Faith pant is more relaxed, so we grabbed a 2X. The fit of the Addison tank is more fitted than the Jocelyn tank so a 3X is perfect, especially if Rachel wanted to add an extra bra for support.
"I absolutely love everything about the design and fit of this jacket, which is a staple in my own active wear wardrobe. The thumb holes are a dream come true, as is the breathable yet elegant looking mesh material that complements and accents the bold floral pattern in my favorite colors. The top also feels comfortable and supportive enough to double as a sports bra - functional and fashionable is always the best way to go in my book!"
OUTFIT 3 - Transitional Attire
The Naomi tee makes the perfect loose layer for any day and any activity. The tie allows the waistband details on the Meegan pant show. This outfit exemplifies this year's trend of athletic and leisure.
"I love the streamlined feel of these pants, complete with the delightfully surprising teal and green accents in the calf - paired with this comfortable and well-fitting top, which I prefer to tie-up crop-top style. It's perfect to transition from yoga to any daily errands, but I especially appreciate how free I feel in it at my favorite weekend Farmer's Market."
