Special Blog Post - Juanita de Villiers Velts

Juanita de Villiers Velts is a freelance actress who recently starred in the Afrikaans film “Somer Son”. This leading lady says that she has a wonderful stylist for events, but for interviews and smaller events she has to decide on her own what to wear and that can be scary at times – mainly due to the fact that she is still learning what her style is. Juanita says that getting the combination of feminine yet sexy in a look can be difficult at times – and this is something I can relate to as well.

Juanita’s favourite clothing item to wear is a pair of jeans and then of course a beautiful evening dress. This spontaneous, friendly and passionate young woman describes her personal fashion style being comfortable, safe and fitting with a hint of sexy. Her favourite time of day is after 9 am as this is the time where she is full of energy. Juanita says that she is currently not very happy with her current style. In her twenties it was all about comfort, but now she is trying to go for a more feminine with a hint of sexy. Her best friend, Lindi Delport, has a massive influence on her personal style. Juanita says that Lindi can put stuff together so that it looks stunning. Another woman also influencing Juanita’s style is her stylist that helps her with her evening looks.

 For the inspiration for this look I decided to stay with lighter shades of cool colours and combining it with shades of grey and metallic. I love spending many hours on Pinterest looking for inspiration for the looks I style. For Juanita’s look I found images ranging from interior to nail colours and even paint swatches.

The main idea with this look was comfort, sexy and to go from day to night with simply changing the accessories. I decided to use this stunning sweater dress in a pale pink colour. This will complement her skin tone and hair colour perfectly. For the day look I then decided to keep things fresh and hip by adding the gold metallic sneakers and the east-west tote bag. When it comes to accessories, simplicity is key, but that doesn’t mean she cannot make a statement, therefore I decided to use the stunning wooden flower necklace and to finish this look off with a pair of large cat eyed sunglasses in a mid-brown colour. 

When it comes to the evening look changing I first started by changing the shoes. This pair of laser-cut high silver heels immediately got my attention. i then decided to pair it up with the floral laser cut silver clutch bag, oval flower drop earrings and a big dial watch in grey and rose. The Bvlgari fragrance and True Aubergine lip colour will pull this look together and Juanita will look like a Hollywood celeb.
