Bonang Matheba is no stranger to high fashion, she is as at home on the red carpet as she is on her reality TV Show, hosting a huge event or on the cover of a magazine. Read on to see the rules of style we’ve gleaned from one of the most consistent BellaStylistas on the continent.

Denim is A Wardrobe Staple

Be like Bonang and treat denim like a wardrobe must have – whether it’s cute cut-offs or distressed jeans, it’s a seminal piece in your fashion arsenal. Pair your denim with anything from lightweight, billowy blouses to the ultimate foolproof summer outfit formula – A pair of jeans and a crisp white shirt. Or you can go fully fashion forward with a kimono-style robe. Either way, our guess is, denim will be on heavy rotation in your wardrobe.

Co-ords the Word

The first step to working your coords is choosing the right print or color. Go for a color palette that flatter your skin tone like Bonang. You can also opt for prints that elongate your frame like her striped set. Coords are perfect for playful weekend outfits – paired with sneakers or sandals. For events, amp it up with edgy and polished with badass heels and heavy metal jewelry.
