My Style: Lynda Ddane Uwamahoro – Day 6
Meet Lynda Ddane Uwamahoro, our style star this week. She’s a TV host and media personality currently working with UBC TV.
My personal style in a few words is “comfortable, daring and flamboyant “. Black is my favorite color as it somewhat sneaks its way into everything I wear. However, I still love to play with colour in my outfit choices better than a preschooler does with their crayons. This is what fascinates me about African print. The colour galore is breathtaking.
I do not have an exact shopping spot. I buy different things from different places and many times I tweak them to suit me and my character. Like adding cut outs or prints to make them different from the usual because I find normal a bit boring.
Style icons … I’d pick Rihanna because I’m always drawn to her fashion sense. Her character and mine are not so different. If you asked me for another, I would pick Meagan Good because I just have a crush on her.
I work with different photographers like Mujumbura Oneal, Fred Bugembe, Daville of Multiways Photography and Benie Popie among others. They are all super talented but with totally different points of view.
The good old combination of a crop top and leather shorts, my idea of an elegant chill out outfit. That’s like hitting two birds with one stone.
There’s no better way to flaunt what you’ve got than in a crop top. It flatters the waist beautifully. Since I have a small upper body … I can throw on a crop top any day !!! Pair it up in different ways to suit different occasions.
With a high waist skirt or chino pants to work, with jeans and sneakers for a casual look or with shorts for an outdoor event.
The leather shorts or pants add an elegant touch to what would otherwise have been a super casual look, had the shorts been of denim or in African fabric.
