1. Karrueche Tran aces two major trends in one look. Not only does she shine bright in yellow; the embellished sleeve detail makes this look a winner.

2. The queen of versatile style, Nomzamo Mbatha pulls off a double-ruffled number in a matching skirt and off-shoulder top. This outfit is an absolute must-have for summer, and we’re obsessed with it.

3. Never one to do things in half measures, Rihanna absolutely slays in an over-the-top ruffled gown. Only she can take an eccentric piece, pair it with sneakers and sunglasses, and make it look this cool.

4. A plain button-down shirt is so last season – these days it’s all about dramatic finishes and interesting cuts. One of the biggest shirt trends is the exaggerated ruffled sleeve worn by Thuli Phongolo. It is the easiest way to take an outfit from drab to absolutely fabulous!

She’s here for everything that they said she couldn’t dare have! ? | ? @siya_majozi ❤️
