This week, we got to pop some street style with recording artiste Amanyea. Having always loved the idea of looking different from everyone else while staying trendy, she has explored mixing patterns and prints with colours that pop and announce themselves when she walks into a room. This vibrant lady has never disappointed when it comes to surprising people with her outfit, literally, from head to toe.
“I don’t plan my outfits from the night before like most people because I end up changing my mind on the actual day,’” she said.
Instead, Amanyea wakes up and goes with how she feels, bearing in mind the occasion.
So, where does she get these waves of inspiration? “Just walking on the streets downtown, interacting with the different personalities and thrifting. There’s also one particular person on Instagram that I definitely look forward to. Her outfits speak to me on a different level,” she said with a chuckle.
Besides animal prints with which she expresses some amount of obsession, platform shoes of all kinds can be found in her closet. “I had knee surgery and I was told that I would never be able to wear stilettos again. But, being so tiny, I wanted to be off the floor, so from sneakers to loafers, everything has a platform,” Amanyea stated. With ribbons, clips, and rings on every finger, each ensemble ties together for a refined look worthy of a magazine cover.
Joining style forces with Loud Fashion and Campari, here are seven outfits, chosen by Amanyea, each for a different affair:
