Local fashion bloggers show us how to accessorise like a pro

March 12, 2015

Fashion blogging is huge around the world and South Africa is no exception. Bloggers are invited to all the hottest events and parties, and show up looking super stylish.

The recent Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Joburg was no exception.

All of the top bloggers showed up looking like fashion royalty. They can teach us a thing or two about always looking amazingly put-together and how to accessorise like our lives depend on it. These are the hot fashion trends to copy right now.

Bigger is better

Both Raya Rossi, fashion editor at A Fashion Friend and blogger at A Visual Journal, and Chu Suwannapha, fashion director at You, Huisgenoot and Drum magazines, know that size really does matter. Especially when it comes to sunglasses. Here, Raya is rocking oversized Dolce & Gabbana sunnies which are the perfect complement to her mod suit. They both also know the value of a sharp suit, mixing prints and the hottest shape handbag of the season.

Sporty is in


Sports luxe is a trend which won’t be going anywhere, anytime soon. Thithi Nteta of Tee Tee Is WIth Me showed us how to rock our favourite sneakers with a super stylish dress. This look combines comfort with style, meaning you’ll be able to go to the after party without limping.

It’s all in the details

Ladies, watches are still very much a must have fashion item. We may look at our phones for the time more often than not, bare wrists are just not trendy. If you’re not stacking a pile of chunky bracelets and bangles, choose just one classic timepiece to accessorise your wrist in style. Aqeelah Harron of Fashion Breed knows the power of understated accessorising.
