Step in Style with Takunda – Spontaneous and Eclectic

Step in Style is all about sharing and celebrating stylish people, male or female, whose style is impeccable, those who have mastered the art of being themselves. I consider styling the most basic form of creation. The art of figuring out what you love, consistently embracing it and letting it evolve just as you do is nothing short of magic. In this second edition, I interview Takunda, who I’ve also not yet met in person but whose spontaneous and eclectic style grabbed my attention via Instagram. Most of the outfits you see here were created by her and she has amazing pictures, I had a hard time choosing. I hope you draw inspiration from her just as I have. Enjoy.

What is your most memorable stylish moment?

I don’t think I have had one yet!! Actually, it’s whenever I’ve gone on holiday. I always make all my holiday clothes and sometimes they are thematic. It’s always a vibe. 😂😂

Favourite outfit combo?

It changes all the time but at the moment I’m really into monochromatic looks. Actually have always liked the matchy matchy aesthetic. But an all-black outfit will always have my heart.

Favourite item to style?

A suit

  1. These days of austerity plus relative anxiousness about getting debt, most people balk up against the idea of using a credit card to make acquisition of merchandise or perhaps pay for a vacation, preferring, instead just to rely on a tried in addition to trusted way of making transaction – hard cash. However, if you’ve got the cash available to make the purchase 100 , then, paradoxically, that is the best time for you to use the cards for several good reasons.

  2. It抯 truly a great and helpful piece of info. I am happy that you simply shared this useful information with us. Please stay us informed like this. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Thanks for your write-up. My partner and i have often observed that a lot of people are needing to lose weight simply because wish to show up slim and attractive. On the other hand, they do not often realize that there are many benefits to losing weight also. Doctors declare that over weight people suffer from a variety of diseases that can be directly attributed to their excess weight. The good thing is that people who’re overweight along with suffering from a variety of diseases are able to reduce the severity of the illnesses through losing weight. It is possible to see a progressive but marked improvement with health as soon as even a small amount of fat reduction is reached.
