Asking a guy to dress his girlfriend is a tricky one. Asking a guy to dress his uber-stylish girlfriend is a much bigger ask.
But we asked anyway.
This is part 1 of a series where we asked 4 Cape Town guys to dress their stylish girlfriends for a day.
See Ahlume's everyday style:
Lakheni dressed Ahlume in:
- a fitted skirt,
- a tight fitting top,
- high-heeled boots,
- and an oversized jacket.
Ahlume on her style: My normal everyday style is very minimalist and boyfriend chic/lazy. That has emerged from me falling in love with the idea of borrowing items - whether it be from my brother, from a fashion era or from my mom.
Lakheni on why he chose this outfit: I chose these items because its something I once saw her wearing and she has never repeated the outfit. And I found it very different to what she usually wears in winter.
Ahlume: I like the jacket that he assembled with the outfit, that to me shows how much he knows me. I always throw a jacket over to whatever winter look I’m pulling. What differs from what my boyfriend chose is that it looks very put together. When I choose an outfit I don't want it to look like I tried too hard to achieve the look I’m going for.
Lakheni: I would like to see her in heels more often even though they can look impractical.
