Style Daily: Me on Wardrobe Essentials

Gwenyth Paltrow said that: “Beauty, for me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”

Girls have it easy.

Seriously, so much variety in our clothing and so much to do with hair.

So, let’s take a look at some wardrobe essentials.

College girls in Cape Town can be seen in Jeans and Converse All Stars.

They are the uniform of Varsity dwellers walking across many a meters in the rain in order to attend classes.

They are comfy and cheap, comfortable and can be dressed up and down.


 Being innately beautiful is quite an awesome accessory to have in an armory of style.

Spotted this pretty lady manning the desk at one of the shops I frequent called Vintage and the City.

 Beyond her initial beauty, she has some really wicked style mixes.

The top is so reminiscent of Ice hockey jerseys, she has a vintage gold watch, ripped jeans layered above a pair of navy pantyhose, with a pair of white Topshop sandals, and cute wavy hair. IMG_0123

 Just like men and their need for a good leather belt, womans wardrobes require an array of different kinds of belts. Stretchy belts are good for those times when you have a baggy dress or top and need something to kinch it at the waist.

I’m partial to Gold-bar belts but these multi-colored ones from Babette are fresh and affordable.


 People with great legs are usually never shy about donning shorts.

These two show us simple summer street style with plain white Ts, leather bags, Chucks, and a jersey top, light scarf and sandals respectively.


Oh! And dont forget Sunnies for every occasion.

We are partial to the Spitfire’s range.


Braids have gone viral globally now, since Solange Knowles made box braids Instagram famous.

In South Africa, they are a common sight. This lady has the bob level braids that add that special something to an outfit.

I totes dig her skirt too. It’s like a Jackson Pollock painting made simple in print.


Hair game so fierce!

This lady popped out in a crowd with her voluminous hair secured in a scarf.

Let’s not forget the Jean Jacket that seems to be a generation-to-generation fashion heirloom globally.

We are reviving and maintaining the spirit of 60s Hippie.

Regardless of whether you are attending music festivals or just going to buy milk down the road, these babies are just a seasons Must-Have.

Babette has a great vintage collection, as does Second Time Around.IMG_0080

Snapshot of a lady I saw with a light and chilled outfit on campus.

Dig the gold links on her shoes.


Whats a wardrobe without a chest of jewels?

Dont be without some Gold bling this season.

The chunky necklaces that have been overdone and sold in mass quantities, are still trending.


I’ve been thinking: Could I pull off vintage dresses?

I’m no Stepford Wife-looking lady, but browsing never hurt right?

Olive Green Jersey top – Second Time Around

White Vest – Mr Price

Ballerina pink skirt – Mr Price

Oak brown belt – Babette
