Music may make the world go round, but fashion just makes it all look so much better when it’s invited to the party. Singing sensation Toya Delazy is embracing both and winning fans at every turn. Her current single “Love Is In The Air” is proof of her instant appeal and so with beats tripping LEGiT went backstage to find out if clothes the mega-music star make.
Describe your personal style
Style is a way for me to express myself. My mom was very stylish. I come from a very conservative background, but I like my street wear and I mix it up with vintage items. I like to arrange my outfits so it’s still funky with a classical touch. It’s called “Formal Funk”.
What’s your number one tip for on-trend style?
Style is incredibly personal and I think it’s important to not only follow trends, but find what you like – and develop it into your own personal style. But my one tip would be, accessorise. Don’t be afraid to accessorise, it can really transform your look.
What’s your favourite occasion to dress up for?
I love getting dressed up for shows and performances. I want to give my fans a great show and that includes looking good.
What’s your Number One Summer 2012 essential?
I would have to say vests. They are great, and they come in a range of different colours and patterns. It’ll definitely get people in the summer mood.
Heels or flip-flops?
What is your most treasured fashion item?
I absolutely love my suits; especially my blazers and I love my shoes.
Do you have an item in the back of your wardrobe that you'll never wear?
What are your first-date wardrobe staples? Which items make a fantastic first impression?
I think it’s important to keep it simple, and definitely feel comfortable in what you’re wearing. It’s probably a safe bet to stay formal casual. So I would recommend a smart shirt, and a pair of skinny jeans.
