Sure, keeping up with street style and runway trends is important, but more than that, keeping up with our followers’ tastes is our priority. The point is to bring you guys fashion you can vibe with and that means keeping an eye on what you’re into. Our #Superbme entries are in and we see that billowy sleeves and front knot details are the flavour of the month. Two major style moments in their own rights, at the moment, this is how our fashion faves are pulling it off…

In monochrome…

As mundane as they can be, black and white are failsafe choices when you want to make a solid statement - their true power lies in how the effect depends on your execution. A classic wrap shirt with a cuffed billowy sleeve detail, the poplin blouse give as much in function as it does in style. You can see that in how effortlessly our winner Tasarna and Camille pulled off equally impeccable but completely different looks, in the style.

With stripes…

Seamlessly transcending season as they accentuate style that packs a punch, stripes are an evergreen print that ensure that heads turn. They’re back on high rotation and we’re getting all kinds of style inspiration from Deeshy and Zoliswa’s looks that are either knotted or gathered in the front. Depending on the slant, stripes can be elongating or widening but the key take out here is that they are best worn when you feel like “bigger is better”, and as seen on these entries, a front knot does wonders for accentuating the waistline.

In living colour…

Bold brights undoubtedly breathe life into any ensemble. Khwezi shows us that a front knot is just as effective on trousers as it is on a top, the light floral wide leg pants provide a stunning contrast with the tee and structured purse. Lending a fashionable update to a dress that would otherwise have been pure function, Pelontle's midi bell sleeves keep a basic as comfortable as can be while still ticking style boxes. These two ladies are all about sensible combinations.
