Love At First Fit
I blog about fashion, because drip is immortal!
*insert Uche Natori British accent* “Hellooooo my loves! I’m Kamvalethu Cengani (ig : @cengani_k) and welcome to my blog Love At First Fit !
A bit about me — I am 20 years old, South African (umXhosa), commercial model living in Johannesburg. I study Architecture at Wits University. My interests in fashion and social media are probably the biggest drivers of this blog ... followed by a lack of blogs/ information on the internet that showcase the kinds of styles that I like. I am an introvert so I spend more time admiring drip on pinterest & instagram than in real life you know...
I’m a huge fan of street style , layering & rich tones (i guess i’m a “skrr skrr”, but i prefer not to be called that :)) & i’m also into a bit of make up ... & by make up i mean @naezrahlooks kinda make up, because i’m a coloful girl.
Sooooo ...! This blog is here to give you tips on how to create simple , yet playful looks out of basic clothing items without having to overspend!
My Winter Top picks (2019)
- The Puffer Jacket
The puffer jacket has been worn for quite some time now , it isn’t really a new trend but it is definitely still on the move !
The Long Puffer
Because this is a long almost-ankle length jacket , what you want to do is pair it with lose leg (idk what i’m saying) pants . This couple gives that ‘on the move’ ‘booked & busy’ kinda vibe . You don’t want to wear the long puffer with e.g skinny jeans , because a tight ankle doesn’t really bring out the greatness of the long puffer. With that said , all you’re trying to create here is that ‘layering’ vibe without actually layering.
A Colors Show
The best way to rock color is adding a dash of it on that facebeat/hair/claws etc to enhance the outfit!

Neon - Make Up
Here she has paired two fresh bright colors using white (or any other minimal color in your case) as the base color & neon green as the main subject. The simple eye shade is created to enhance the aesthetic and the whole look . You’re probably already impressed with this outfit without even seeing the rest of it yet!

Now this one is specially for the gram because obviously you can’t carry a gate around with you 😄. The base colors here are white , black, cream & beige (minimal colors , remember) & having the greens at different shades , creates a more interesting aesthetic (other than your bomb outfit) that drive followers to actually engage with the photograph without getting a headache.

If you’re planning on going full monochrome you might wanna add some bling so that you don’t look too flat . By adding jewelry , you’re pushing the desired color’s ability to the limits because drip never rests !!
Instagram Special - Editing
Vintage/Retro fashion has been a thing from 2013 & has only been getting better since . Not only do influencers dress the part but they also curate the part.
Take a look at these apps that you might like to use to serve feed!
App #1 - iOS Editing Feature
With a bit of maneuvering & playing around this app , you can create that 80’s daylight photography/ polaroid camera effect. The main features to look at are the contrast (decreased) & the shadows (increased) features.
