We’re delving into the style secrets of one of SA’s favourite celebs – Mapaseka Koetle-Nyokong. Want to copy her style? Keep reading for all the secrets behind Pasi’s flawless look.
Scandal actress, MC and voice-over artist Mapaseka Koetle-Nyokong may be a new parent, but there are no mom jeans in sight here.
“Being a new mom doesn’t mean you have to forget about yourself,” says Pasi, who never looks less than immaculately turned out. It’s hard to believe that her little one isn’t even a year old, and yet Pasi looks every inch the catwalk queen.
“I make sure that I’m comfortable in everything I wear, and that my clothes are a perfect fit.”
Pasi’s number-one go-to item for style and comfort is a well-fitted pair of jeans – important when you describe yourself as having “a small waist and a big bum.”
Whatever your budget, there’s a pair of denims to accentuate your assets. The trick is just finding them – which fortunately for you, we have! Splurge on a pair of 3301 Low Waist Skinny Jeans (G-Star RAW, R2 399, pictured right), because after all, you can’t go wrong with dark aged denims. Want to spend less? The belted skinny jeans by Kelso (R399, Edgars) or ripped ankle grazers (R199.99, Jet, pictured left) do the trick in a cinch!

“I love boots,” declares Pasi, and a glimpse through her gorgeous Instagram feed shows she’s a shoe girl through and through.
Boots are a super versatile addition to your wardrobe, and if you opt for a pair of classic ankle-highs, you can easily take them from winter to spring. We’re all about the Gusset boots in gorgeous tan, perfect for daytime strolls with the kids or relaxed dinners with friends (R90, Jet, pictured middle). For a more sophisticated evening look, opt for a black velvet finish (R599, dailyfriday at Superbalist, pictured right), or let your wild side shine with the eclectic patent boot in pewter (R499, dailyfriday at Superbalist, pictured left).
JUMPSUITING FOR JOY
“Jumpsuits are easy to wear and style, and I love wearing them,” says Pasi. And we have to agree. Jumpsuits take the guesswork out of mixing and matching an outfit, with the added benefit of looking super stylish too.
Our favourites this season are the Caitlin denim utility playsuit (R799, Forever New, pictured), which pairs perfectly with the Gusset boots. For a smarter night-time look, we can’t get enough of the high-neck lace-up jumpsuit by dailyfriday (R599, Superbalist). And of course, don’t forget to pimp your jumpsuit with an awesome accessory or two. We’re particularly partial to the Pretty Vintage Chand earrings (R269, Accessorize, pictured) and the leather bucket daily bag (from R599, Matandmay.co.za, pictured).
