This fashion stylist, personal shopper and wardrobe organiser knows a thing or two about what’s hot and what’s not.
Fashion isn’t just a passion for Tshepi Vundla – she’s made it her business too. With her love affair with clothes starting in her childhood, fashion has seen Tshepi studying to be a designer, modelling, styling, doing personal shopping, and finally consulting under her own brand, Twelve12.
"I love dressing according to my mood, and of course dressing for the occasion,” says Tshepi of her personal style. “Knowing my body and what works for me is very important, and it’s honestly okay to miss out on trends because they don’t suit you instead of forcing things,” she advises.
One of our favourite of Tshepi’s looks sees her smouldering in statement sunnies, a bold blouse, ripped jeans and strappy heels. We’ve searched high and low for all the best buys, so that it’s as easy as a swipe of your RCS Card to recreate the look for yourself. With up to 55 days’ interest-free credit on every purchase as well as access to cash, an RCS Card is the easiest way to stay as stylish as Tshepi.
Aviators, wayfarers, round or oversized? What’s your sunglasses steeze? Tshepi favours a slim, cat-eye style that’s the height of cool.
We’re loving these cheap and cheerful options from Exact (R89.99), Foschini (R130), and The Fix (R79.99), but if you’re wanting the real deal to put your prescription in, check out these divine Escada frames from Execuspecs (R3 595).
Fading into the crowd isn’t an option in these sassy statement shirts. Go for casual but cool in the Striped Wrap Shirt (Edgars, R249.95), or something a little more office-ready with the Addisyn Printed Blouse (R399, Poetry). If you’re really wanting to make a splash, the Soft Shirt from Next (R381) is where it’s at.
The right pair of heels take just about any outfit from drab to fab. Tshepi’s look is all about the stylish strappy stilettos.
Whether you go for a wardrobe staple in a neutral tone – like the Barely There Heels (R349.95, Edgars) – or something with a little more glitz and glam – such as the Multi-Strap Heeled Sandal in Rose Gold (R399, Foschini) or Kira Asymmetric Heeled Sandal (R849, Forever New) – a set of strappy heels is sure to elevate your look to all-new heights.
