When it comes to styling statement pieces with minimalist power, Keneilwe Mothoa wins. This Johannesburg-based fashion lover and freelance interior designer knows how to give staples – like longer length shirts, leather jackets, boyfriend jeans and sneakers – a fresh spin. She also sticks to a neutral palette of grey melange, deep black, inky blue and crisp white. Keneilwe loves styling pieces from Prime Obsession and the store at Work Shop New Town (with an incredible Instagram page), of which she is a co-owner.
Acid wash boyfriend jeans are incredible paired with a long white shirt. To add interest, throw on a leather jacket and black boots. (And don’t forget your game face.)
Comfortable meets chic when layering grey knits. A leather baseball cap and sneakers finish off this sports-luxe look.
This style equation is simple. Button-up shirt + jeans + leather jacket = effortless style.
Whoever said you can’t wear dark blue and black together didn’t know how to style it like Keneilwe.
The ultimate combo is switched up with sneakers, ripped jeans and a fringed leather jacket.
