10 Reasons Why We're Crowning Nadia 'Bragga' Nakai an SA Street Style Star

SA rap queen Nadia Nakai is our street-style star of the moment

Nadia Nakai aka Bragga aka South Africa’s rap princess has been slaying street style looks lately. Whether it’s for her latest music video or just appearing at an event, we’re absolutely obsessed with Bragga and her unique, edgy street-style looks.

Here’s why she’s got our vote in the style department:

1 She rocks oversized denim jackets with sewn-on patches, layered beaded necklaces and Queen Bey-inspired sunnies.

2 Can we just talk about how she has a pink custom-made tracksuit from online store Sauvemaxia, with her name on the back? If that’s not the dopest thing we’ve ever seen, we don’t know what is.

5 Like her Instagram caption says, ‘Bragga doesn’t sweat the small stuff’. This is where effortlessly cool street-style comes from – a badass attitude. And Nadia Nakai owns it like no other. We’re also loving this graphic monochrome cropped top!

8 We love the way Nadia adds edgy touches with unique accessories, like this lip ring and mirror shades. Kim K predicted the lip ring would make a feature in this year’s hottest trends and we think she might be on to something here.

10 Speaking of legs, what’s a street style star without an Instagram snap in front of an insanely sexy car, showing insanely sexy legs and just looking, well, insanely sexy?
