Day 5 of SAFW was all about the men and it was also the last day of fashion week. To continue with honouring the ‘no colour’ theme, I decided to wear a crisp white button down shirt that I got from Woolworths from the men’s section and wore it as a shirt dress. This is what I love about fashion lately, you are free to move across departments and styling has really become androgynous as gender barriers are being crossed.
Put the corny nature of my title aside and let’s just appreciate that there’s nothing better than when your clothes kind of come alive. The flower appliqué on this shirt is truly unique, and the bell-end sleeves give it that vintage class. It’s like you can almost pick flowers off of me lol. I’m always contrasting styles and textures so I paired this delicate shirt with a distressed denim skirt.
Keeping it clean is the fundamental rule when trying out a minimalist look. To be a minimalista, go for fits that have little detail and clean lines, also try to keep things somewhat monochromatic. Minimalist styles are all about unexpected proportions and don’t be afraid of mixing textures. All these elements add to the architectural influence of a minimalist look.

People always have something to say about you, the way you talk, the things you do and the clothes you wear. I’m personally not here for that anymore. You’ve got to put that aside and step into your purpose.
