We can all buy random items, but how we put them together is what sets us apart. We recreated some of our street style favs - here are the results:


1. Dress over a dress

Street style fashion girls love this look. Be it a dress over a dress or a skirt over a dress OR even a skirt over a dress over a dress.

Yes. It's a lot.

Zakiyah tried this styling trick at ZARA.

Striped dress, R1209.
Dress underneath, R1299.

2. Polka dots and florals

This is another challenging one as mixing prints sometimes just feels a bit off.

Yet Zakiyah managed to make it look chic and polished as workwear.

Polka dot dress, R1399.

Floral peplum blouse, R749.


3. Polka dots and dogtooth/houndstooth

I really love this combo as it is a nice juxtaposition of playful and serious - my absolute fav combo.

I paired a H&M polka dot top, R429 and a dogtooth pencil skirt, R799 (that I'm totally buying soon!).


4. Blazer paired with a mini skirt or shorts

This is all about playing with different lengths.

Afika opted for this oversized blazer from ZARA, R1200 and paired it with some black shorts, R419.
