“Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself”- Oscar de la Renta

The Style Diaries is about spotting the latest trends on campus. It is dedicated to students who are fashionable, trendy and daring. Each week #TeamVuvu will feature students who define style.

Lebo is sporting the ‘all black’ trend, this is complemented with a denim waistcoat and black Chelsea boots. She tops it off with an Afro-centric turban, adding colour to the outfit. “Sometimes it’s political, and sometimes it’s cultural relativism. I chose the turban because I love statement pieces and piecing items together.” she said.

First-year Actuarial Science student, Chiraag Kathwaroo, is wearing an oversized jersey, faded blue jeans and denim sneakers. He is sporting the trendy ‘man bun’ to complete his outfit. “Everyone goes to Cotton On and Top Shop to buy these jerseys and all end up looking the same. I literally just stole my dad’s clothes from the 80’s and the 90’s, and that’s where I get my fashion inspiration from.”
