Anita Nderu shows us how to make an affordable dress look expensive (Photos)

Money can't buy style

And yes I might have given her that title myself but it's totally befitting and comes well deserved. Anita is intrinsically stylish and exudes glamour and confidence in whatever she wears. I particularly like the fact that she's one of the few celebrities that dresses herself instead of soliciting the services of a celebrity fashion stylish. For the Capital FM presenter, style is all about having indefinite classic items that lean not just towards high end labels but also thrift items. They say money can never buy style and class.

When it comes to fashion, sometimes, you don't have to splurge on expensive designer wear to look the part. Identify different thrift stores that sell uber stylish basic pieces and mix them with luxury pieces such as a designer clutch or a carefully selected shoe to serve some celeb-style fashion.

Anita was attending an event at Dusit D2 hotel and wore a one hand sleeve black gown with a mermaid bottom and a tail, just long enough to steal the show.

While accessorizing the gown with dangling earrings and a clutch encrusted with crystals, she kept her makeup subtle and wore her hair into a slicked back ponytail.

You'd think she was dressed by Prada or something but turns out, the stunning Ksh 2,500/- dress was from Tungare 254 a popular Instagram boutique that deals in trendy perennial pieces for the average fashion aficionado.

So, next time you're about to spend ten k on a dress, ask yourself, What would Anita Nderu do?
