Actress Bahumi Madisakwane and self-confessed fashionista Robbie Malinga Jnr’s style can be described as a modern take on the naughts: high-low fashion. 

Madisakwane can sometimes be seen wearing off-the-shoulder denim shirts and crop tops while her hair is styled in a chunky braid up-do. This nostalgia inducing look has had some people refer to her as the late singer Lebo Mathosa, which we find quite fitting.

Malinga’s fashion choices are a true reflection of what you may see in one of the latest hip hop music videos, as he plays around with a lot of diamond encrusted accessories which he refers to as the ice-tray. 

If you’re looking to stand out, here are some style tips to incorporate into your own wardrobe.

Steal her style

  1. Wear fewer colours. Introduce black as the base colour of your wardrobe with additions of beige and whites for a palette cleansing wardrobe.
  2. Be more experimental. Hair is a big part of Madisakwane’s wardrobe, so play around with platinum blonde and silver hair colour; remember the bigger the better.
  3. Forget the latest mini-bag trend and go for the oversized duffel bag or the Louis Vuitton never-full bag to make a fashion statement. Keep your jewelry at a minimum and go for a sleek watch with a matching bracelet.

Steal his style

  1. Load up on your accessories and stack up anything from necklaces to rings as well as sunglasses.
  2. Be a logo-maniac. If you had been unsure of how to pull off a head to toe logo look, just dive right in. Wear a logo scarf and pair with logo printed trousers and complete the look with chunky sneakers.
  3. When it comes to formal wear, keep it clean and go for a sleek black suit and pair with unmissable details such as a red sole shoe and over-sized sunglasses.
