The Instagram Look Louw-Down

Francois Louw

Beauty and image consultant Francois Louw has taken a look at what our local schlebs have been posting on Instagram this week, and for the most part, he's not impressed.

This is the best look I have had to comment on for The Citizen. The mixtures of gold, different shades of brown with just a slight hint of animal print makes this fabulous. What makes it even better is the different type of fabrics she uses together! Definitely my favorite for this week!

No, no, no… This entire outfit is a mess from top to bottom.

Guys, lets focus here: when wearing a tuxedo jacket you can never wear a slip-on shoe. Your choice of shoe must have laces. When wearing black on black it at least has to be the same shade of black and fabric, or then go for an entirely different colour. When you wear a pink sock, please do not try to duplicate it with the same colour flower on your chest. You are a man, not a woman playing dress-up. The hat? I have no words…

This rockstar chick is just getting better and better each week. Love the different fabrics together in all shades of browns, copper and beige. Just one tip, when wearing all these neutral colours, try a bright lip. Orange or coral will look fab on this skin tone!

Another bad look of the week. The matrix look alike jacket is not something to be seen in unless it is snowing in Africa. The use of that tight fitting dress with the jacket and boots is just such a terrible ensemble. The tight fitting hair should have been bigger and maybe curly. African ladies do not ever have any excuse to wear a lazy hair style. There are so many easy options to make your hairdo look fab!

I am not sure if I am missing something here? But am I the only one thinking this is just a bad advert for clothes thrown together? The pants are cool though… Let us just ignore this post.
