Fashionista: Sharon Wanjiku

Posted by AfroElle On 2:30 AM
2Our fashion inspiration is fashionista Sharon Wanjiku, a Mass Communication student, business lady, fashion blogger, and an upcoming stylist.

What is your signature style?

Sharon: simple, effortless and chic.

Whats your favourite accessory?

My favourite accessory would be necklaces. I love bold chain, the longer and chunkier, the better.

Outfit: "This outfit is stylish but in a very relaxed way.The shorts are from Mr.Price. Tshirt and half coat from Gikomba.The jeweller; Shyxx accessories. I like flat shoes, they are comfortable and efficient especially for school, would love to own a pair in every single colour."

Who is your celebrity fashion icon and why?

I have so many style icons, though Blake Lively and Jessica Szor top the list. I love their eclectic taste, the unusual way they combine vintage and high street is just super. Locally,I would say, Namtero Mdee; she always looks glamorous, Nancy Mwai also stands out with her incredible versatility.

Outfit: In this outfit I on a red satin dress that i bought from Elegant exhibition for 1500 bob.It was a rather cold day so I paired it with stockings and a mini mac.I got the lace booties from Toi market for Ksh.1000."

What is your perfect everyday shoe?

I would say flat shoes of course. From elegant sandals to colourful ballet shoes. I do a lot of walking and I always like being comfortable.
Outfit: "I recently purchased this nautical dress  from Collabor international.I love the shoulder detail and cotton feel to it.I added stockings since it was daytime and a black necklace from my collection.The lace up ankle booties were a cheap bargain at Toi Market."

What style best describes your work outfits?

 I run my own small time business so my dressing is not restricting. I like to wear something casual, creative and stylish.

Outfit: "I have on a pair of rolled up faded  blue jeans that I bought from Jamia Mall and a blue vintage blazer from Gikomba market.I finished the look with beige heels an a matching bag from Asile(shop next to Nakumatt City Hall).

What will you rock on a night out with the girls?

On a girls night out I would definitely rock a sequined blazer with matching harem pants, a vintage clutch and bright coloured heels. OR a pretty dress with a long shiny layered neckpiece.

Outfit:This is my favourite. I have on a military striped jacket and a pair of black slim pants.The shoes are a recent purchase from a boutique in town.I love the look as i can rock it during the day or even on a night out.

What do you consider as fashion no-no's?

I have a long list of those; however, showcasing underwear and chipped nail polish are just the worst. Tight bras; don’t you just hate it when you see a lady (or maybe not) all squeezed up in a bra two sizes smaller? Wearing heels and walking on bend knees in town is just a crime, we can all see you are struggling! Practice always makes perfect.

Outfit: "I wore this outfit on a really cold day.I had on a grey sweater and stockings,both from Toi market and a black mini trench from Ngara.Green is my second fave colour(well,it shares with purple at first place).I got the green handbag from Karen Designs,the green shoes from Toi and the necklace from my collection.

Any fashion advice?

Keep your style individual, don’t copy everything you see. Get ideas and try to come up with your own style.
