If Tolula Adeyemi were a superhero, then she would be known as, “The Chameleon.” The London-born model/actress/DJ keeps us guessing with her apparent love of shaking things up stylistically. One day she’s embracing a rocker chic look, the next she’s emitting bohemian vibes and the day after that she’s almost unrecognizable with a fresh hairstyle.

The best part? No one questions it. She isn’t pegged as ‘a woman that tries too hard’ nor does she become lost in the clothes she’s wearing. In fact, her innate sense of style inspires others like Vivienne Westwood whom has labeled her a muse and numerous publications that have profiled her style like Essence and Vogue Italia.

We’ve decided to join their good company and round up our favorite looks by the style maven. Click ‘Next’ and prepare to be impressed!

This gown is anything but safe! She’s giving us peek-a-boo shoulder, an abstract print and crisp white simultaneously, yet it all works. Gold earrings and a simple black clutch compliment rather than compete with the dress. Tolula is working it!

Shimmering fabrics are not everyone’s friend, but Tolula and this gleaming top are besties! We love how it’s paired with a white high-waist pencil skirt. The pastel lights give us the impression that this shot is from one of her modeling gigs – and most likely styled by someone else – but doesn’t she look great?!

Lime green is one of those colors that you either love or you hate, but we’re betting Tolula makes you love it on her! She tones down her top and purse with neutral colors. Those navy shorts and a tan structured jacket work great! For that extra oomph, she dons embellished heels. So easy and breezy!

If you were looking for an example of how to wear the colored jean trend correctly, but in a simple manner, then look no further! Tolula makes a great decision by pairing bright red jeans with neutral separates. Black, white and red is a classic combination, but it still looks fresh on our girl! Big ups to her for making sure the white had extra personality thanks to some properly placed polka dots.

This vibrant blue print dress makes a statement all on its own and we love that Tolula recognizes that fact. Accessorizing with black and touches of gold keep the focus on the dress. Just look at that smirk! She knows she hit this one out of the park!

Who else can make a fedora and a top that resembles a deconstructed mop look this high fashion? Tolula that’s who! Paired with those frayed shorts, these elements combine to create a boho chic ensemble that works oh-so well for day, but especially night. White, done right.

Tolula should be holding an electric guitar because she looks like a rock star! Pronounced shoulders and bright colors appear to be a couple of her favorite details and in this outfit she boldly dons them together. She pushes the envelope even further with sheer printed leggings and teal satin heels. Still, with so much going on, we are most impressed with her huge grin. Tolula proves that confidence is key. WORK!
