The HSBC SVNS event in Cape Town is set to host the best in the rugby business this weekend, with South Africa’s Blitzboks leading the charge as current series leaders after their triumphant performance in Dubai last week. Beyond the scorching on-field action, the weekend promises to be a sartorial spectacle with over 40 artists gracing three stages around DHL Stadium.
Scheduled from December 9-10, this event is undeniably the place to see and be seen. Speaking of being seen, we had the opportunity to catch up with Tiaan Pretorius, a trendsetter on the South African men’s team, who graciously shared some valuable style tips with us.
1. Versatility is Key
Achieving a stylish look doesn’t require boldness; simplicity can be just as impactful. Invest in classic wardrobe pieces and opt for neutral colours that seamlessly transition from casual to formal settings.
2. Mix High-End with Affordability
Balancing high-end and affordable pieces creates a well-rounded look. It’s not just about brand names; the overall aesthetic matters.
3. Fashion as Self-Expression
Use fashion to express individuality and confidence. Experiment with patterns and textures, but remember the importance of balance in your overall look.
4. Less is More: Embrace Minimalism
Accessorise thoughtfully. Less is more when it comes to accessories. Choose a few key pieces that complement your outfit rather than overwhelming it.
5. Dress for Your Body Shape
Understanding your body shape is crucial for effective dressing. Ensure your clothes complement your physique, enhancing your overall appearance.
6. The Timeless White Shirt
Invest in a classic white shirt. Timeless and versatile, it creates a polished and professional look, making it a wardrobe staple.
7. Dress Code Mastery
Understand the event’s dress code, ranging from casual to formal. Incorporate statement pieces like a blazer, belt, or stylish shoes to add personality to your outfit.
8. Black is Always In
When in doubt about colour coordination, black is a foolproof choice that suits everyone.
9. Invest in Quality Footwear
Shoes or sneakers can make or break an outfit. Don’t hesitate to invest in a quality pair to elevate your overall look.
10. Stay Updated with Trends
Fashion evolves constantly, so keep abreast of the latest trends to stay in vogue.
In conclusion, style is a personal statement, and there are no strict rules. The fashion industry is ever-changing, so wear what makes you feel good and own your unique style.
