DJ Zinhle knows how to strike that fine balance of getting dressed up while still keeping it casual, remaining bang on trend the whole time. Here’s how to get some of her mad style.
Zinhle Jiyane, better known as DJ Zinhle, is widely regarded as one of South Africa’s best house DJs. Her talents aren’t just limited to the turntables though – this star has made her way onto television, designs her own line of accessories and indisputably has a killer sense of style. We’ve broken down her style so you too can rock her hot look.
DELICIOUS IN DENIM
Zinhle’s effortless style usually entails a pair of boyfriend jeans, which she dresses up with a pair of heels. This immediately turns what could be a casual outfit into one you could take with you to the club or evening drinks. You can get the look with a pair of Alexa boyfriend jeans from Forever New (R899). Pair them with some trendy heels from Aldo or Call It Spring and you will be well on your way to completing your style crush outfit. The Kenneson heel (R1 299, Aldo) or something more colourful like the Uliewen peep-toe (R999, Aldo) are a great place to start.
MAKE A STATEMENT
DJ Zinhle always has a statement top, whether it’s a mesh bodysuit, a strappy cami or even just a funky t-shirt. Shop at Edgars, Forever 21 or Sissy Boy for a wide selection of on-trend tops that will suit this look. Adidas offers the best sporty tees – like the adidas boyfriend roll-up tee (R449).
CATCH FEDORA FEELINGS
Zinhle is bang on trend with her love of the fedora – one of this season’s hottest trends. It not only keeps the hot African sun away from your face, but it glams up your look without taking away from the rest of your outfit. Consider this the key piece to any outfit this season. You won’t have any trouble finding fedoras, with Mango and Cotton On stocking some great options (from R299, Mango). Black is the way to go with this item. That way you’ll know it will match almost anything you pair it with.
STYLING IN SUNNIES
Another trademark of DJ Zinhle’s look is a great pair of flashy sunnies – even better if they have a coloured tint. Try the Hannah Half Frame Aviators (R349, Forever New), which have the prettiest pink tint.
Last but not least, a pop of colour is often the way DJ Zinhle finishes off her outfits. It’s something you can add to your outfit later in the day to spice it up or even just to keep you warm once the sun goes down. Mango has a selection of jackets and kaftans that will make your heart melt. The satin bomber jacket (R499, Mango) is a great example of the kind of piece DJ Zinhle would use to finish off her look. It’s got texture and elegance, while still having a sporty edge.
