This week, ELLE Style Reporter in association with BlackBerry Trevor Stuurman took inspiration from our big love issue (on shelf now). He says:

‘The ELLE Style Reporter in association with Blackberry mentorship programme with Sharp Sharp photographer Ed Suter kicked off this past week. My time with Ed was a fruitful one as he showed me the ropes of streetstyle photography. Inspired by the Febuary issue, Ed and I hit the streets of Cape Town to find out what people loved about what they were wearing. The Adderley Street flower market was the perfect backdrop. There’ just something romantic about it. So here are the looks we loved, and the answers to the question, “What do you love about your look?”.’

Hlomi Jack

‘I love the mixture of feminine and masculine. This is an affordable outfit – nothing costs over R50 except for the shoes which were a gift.’



Sibulele Sikuni

‘My look is easy and simple. I love these Mr Price brogues plus they’re super comfortable.’



Aisha Baker

‘My accessories – each one holds a dear spot in my heart.’


Siki Msuseni

‘I am in love with clashing prints with a touch of neon. This Lalesso skirt is at the centre of my heart and the entire outfit was worked around it.’


Terry Mullins

‘I own a vintage shop and I have always been in love with my vintage things.’


Michelle Oberholzer

‘I love insects, especially the shape of wings. The moment I laid my eyes on this necklace, it was love at first sight. My dress is vintage and I love the softness and colour of it.’



Nangi Noruku

‘I love the marriage of all the various textures, from the lacy bustier to the wrinkled effect on my blouse and the rope neckpiece. The floral print brings life to the entire outfit as it adds great detail.’



Yumna Martin

‘I love that the dress was my mother’s, way back in the 70’s, and that it’s still relevant today. It has simplicity with detail and primary colours.’


Stella Onyejeose

‘It’s the bag that I love because it embodies my African heritage.’


Alicia Mbaya

‘That’s easy – it’s the monochrome colour of my hair!’


Style pops up when you least expect it: this woman was breezing past and a snapped her floral backpack. It’s a key summer accesssory that I love!
