LOOK BOOK: LET'S PLAY DRESS UP

Words: Taryn Bester | Photographs: Danielle Cloete from DanniC Photography | Styling: Taryn Bester


Hey Fashion lovers, as you guys might know this past weekend was the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town. I unfortunately, only had the time to attend the David Tlale showcase on Friday evening 24th March, which was held off-set at the Cape Town Club (more about the showcase here).

When I received the invite, the dress code stated… ‘LET’S PLAY DRESS UP’ and I immediately thought of the “Great Gatsby” as a theme to go by. However, I was a bit unsure and played around with a few other ideas. Eventually, I decided to just go with my initial thoughts and ran down to the store to buy a pair of fishnet stockings, which by the way was my very first time wearing.  When arriving at the 1920s themed location for the event, I honestly expected more people to dress up to the theme, but unfortunately was not the case.  

Nonetheless, I was pretty happy to dress up and show off my inner Queen Elizabeth lol. Besides, fishnet stockings are super on trend right now and I can see myself wearing it underneath a pair of distressed denims soon. I used this bell sleeved bodycon dress as my canvas and added accessories to bring the vintage look together.
