With almost 43 000 followers on Instagram all looking to her for inspiration, Nasiphi Ngcwabe knows a little something about what it takes to be stylish.
Never mind #STYLEGOALS, a dip into Nasiphi’s Instagram feed is a lesson in #LIFEGOALS. When this Cape Town-based beauty isn’t jetsetting off to her next #OOTD location, she’s dining out at the trendiest spots or attending the most happening events. You know what they say about dressing for the job you want, so we picked Nasiphi’s brain for her approach to fashion.
“Style for me is timeless and classic; I love a good feminine silhouette,” she says, adding that she likes to play around with her wardrobe and channel many different eras. We’re loving her casual jeans and longline cardi look – perfectly rounded off with layered necklaces, oversized hoop earrings and a felt hat. “I’m currently rediscovering colour and comfort and enjoying an edgier approach to style,” she says.

Pick up these items to pull off this look yourself:
SNUGGLE UP IN A LONGLINE CARDI
Whether you’re layering up over jeans and boots or shrugging it on with a bodycon dress, longline cardigans are a go-to item for the season.
Pick one up with a pop of colour – like the Longline Cardigan in copper or gold (R247, pictured middle left); or the Metallic Edge Knit Cardigan in pink or violet (R511, pictured middle right, both Next). If colour isn’t your thing, you can still get the look with the gorgeous light grey Marsha Cardigan (R650, Old Khaki, pictured left). As the weather gets warmer, go for something lightweight and bright (pink Crochet Cardigan, R370, Next, pictured right).
BRING ON THE BLING
Take a tip from Nasiphi and add an edge to your outfit by going big and bold with your accessories. Your first step is the perfect pair of oversized hoop earrings – and trust us, babe, they go with everything. Pick up a budget-friendly pair from The Fix for just R29.99 (pictured left), or go the convenient route and order them online from Superbalist (hoop earrings – rose gold, R99, pictured right).
Next up is the perfect combo of layered necklaces, and lucky for you, you can buy them in matched packs. We love the Trixie Ditzy Jewel Layered Necklace (R229, Forever New, pictured middle), which has a soft rose-gold finish and diamante stone detail, while the Crystal Layered Necklace (R79.95, Edgars, pictured left) has a gorgeous vintage vibe with its multi-coloured jewels. To get in on the awesome coin necklace trend, check out the triple layer option from Cotton On (R179, pictured right).
If you can find the perfect neutral number to go with every outfit, you’ll be looking for excuses to have a bad hair day! We love The Luna 100% Wool Felt Rancher with Ribbon (R450, Poetry, pictured top left) and the classic black Frankie Felt Fedora (R399, Cotton On, pictured top right). If you want to add a little interest to your look, check out the Ombre Thermo Fedora (R499, Accessorize, pictured bottom right) and the Western Fedora Hat (R449, Missguided at Superbalist, pictured bottom left).
