SAFW, Street Style -Color popping

Fashion is happy again! This is definitely a fact if attendees of the recent South African Fashion Week SS/2012-13’s sense of wear is anything to go by. For a long time fashionistas wore black and made it tres chic. This “uniform” has since been skopped in the behind by Elle Magazine South Africa’s Poppy Evans’ black ankle length leather booties. Stylistas came to play and wore pops of color, some blocked, some fabulously layered and the rest in full gear of happy neons.

FAIRLADY Magazines’s Fashion Editor Chu Suwannapa is the king of color in this gear. I love that T-shirt and die for the Missibaba satchel!

I don’t want anything out of life if not feasting my eyes on those fab-tastic Miu Miu stunneres worn by Poppy Evans. She opted to layer her yellow print dress with a pair of opaque tights and a leather bicker.

Designer; Gert-Johan Coetzee wore an amazing stain print blazer, with tangerine skinny jeans and blue silk neck tie. How about that all-kinds-of dreamy fringed bag?

Sekelo Zondi from EDCON brought the gentleman to play with his canary yellow shirt kitted with a pair of pleated denim jeans and a waist coat.

This trio of young fashion folk took it to a whole new stylish level by rolling in shades of corals, burgundy and blues. Talk about fashion fest not worth missing!

Seventeen Magazine Editor Janine Jellars is stunningly draped in this floor lentgh number and nude pumps cinched at the waist. Amazing blues, I say!

Solly Moeng and his friend here keep the pop of color with their tops. Dearest Solly went for strong shoulders and blocked lapels and brass buttons bare chested, while the friend styled his for a more sports luxe feel with jeans.

From TrueLove magazine with love. Fashion duo Palesa Mahlaba and Nondumiso Mazwi. Palesa wore a high waisted pair of blue pants and Nondumiso donned a dusty floral form fitting full length dress. Whats not to adore here?

Chipo Mapondera from Styling Concepts is a perfect candidate to wrap this edition of street style because she took is straight to the street by styling her romantic dress in a pale blush pink, a bright mini box satchel and those awesome NIKE trainers. Taking personal style to a whole new level.

See ladies and gents. fear not a bit (or a lot) of color. Fashion says so and we should follow suit.
