Singer and actress Kelly Khumalo has a natural flair for fashion. She knows just how to show off her assets with the right figure-hugging ensembles. Here’s how to get her look:
Kelly is an award-winning singer, popular actress, loving mother and fashionista deluxe. With over half a million followers on Instagram, this superstar is a trend-maker rather than a trend-follower. “The beauty about style is that no one else can tell you what to do,” says Kelly. It’s safe to say we are all crushing on her fearless style. So grab your RCS Card and get ready to shop – here’s how to pull off her look:
MAKE A STATEMENT
Kelly says she loves to express herself through personal style and to dress according to her mood at any given moment or day. “Style, to me, is liberation,” says Kelly.
Recently Kelly made a statement in a chic, dusty pink two-piece suit. The first thing to look for in a two-piece is a good fit – try a set from Mango (jacket, R949; slim-fit pants, R449) or Edgars (formal jacket, R499.95; sateen ankle-length pants, R349.95).
If you’re feeling brave, go bold by wearing nothing underneath except a beautiful lace bra. If you’d prefer a little more coverage, pair with a shimmery top for an evening out or make it work-appropriate with a silk cami and toned-down accessories. Forever New has an awesome sparkly body suit (R599), as well as their collection of pastel camis (R399 each).
A two-piece is a wonderfully versatile ensemble – you can mix and match it with other items in your closet to create numerous different looks.
There is nothing quite like a statement ring, pretty necklace or sparkling earrings to perfectly round out an outfit. It’s all about these finer details to bring a look together. Kelly has this trick waxed, bringing an elegance to her outfit with minimal jewellery. She keeps it simple with pearl earrings and a long necklace that emphasises her plunging neckline.
Try out the look yourself with semi-precious stone earrings (R250, Poetry), which lend character to your outfit without being overbearing. Pair them with this three-string necklace (R89.95, Edgars) or beaded tassel necklace (R349, Accessorize) to draw attention to all the right places.
BAG THE LOOK
Last but not least come shoes and bags. While there’s no harm in splurging on the odd fashion piece, look for high-quality pieces that you can invest in, which, if looked after carefully, can last you a lifetime.
Kelly finished off her look with elegant golden strappy heels – much like this pair found at Aldo (R1 399). Pair them with a striking metallic clutch (R299.95, Edgars) to complete the look.
