What’s everyone wearing this Summer!?

18 Nov What’s everyone wearing this Summer!?

One thing we love most about South African’s and their style, particularly the likes of these 7 cool kids, is the clear fact that their wardrobes are not purely dictated by trends but more so by their own personal style and certainty of who they are. So, as fashion lovers we simply had to do our bit and delve into the minds of the most stylish for some summer wardrobe inspiration. We asked 7 of South Africa’s most recognised style aficionado’s what their favourite must-have wardrobe item is this summer and here is what they had to say!

“DENIM!! Why denim? Because it’s comfy, stylish, warm in the winter & cool in the summer. It’s something I feel will never go old or out of style. Whether it be denim shorts or a denim shirt, finding ways to style it becomes effortless. This is my summer must have!”

Irina Doman – I’ll Take It All

Beauty, Travel and Fashion Blogger.

“I am obsessed with the off-the-shoulder trend. I think women often forget how sexy and seductive their shoulders and back can be. This trend is all about staying sexy but subtle this summer.”

Off the shoulder is a definite fav of ours too!

Jerri Mokgofe – According To Jerri

Blogger, photographer, creative master mind, personality with the most and really someone who doesn’t need much of an introduction from our end!

“I am all about the neck scarves, be it bandana or silk!”

Model, Fashion Blogger, MC and TV presenter.

“I am slightly obsessed with my new Nia Masi jumpsuit because you can dress it up with heels or dress it down with a pair of crisp white sneakers or even throw it over your costume after the beach with a pair of Havi’s. It is so versatile!”

Ricci-Lee Kalish – Big Bad Wolf

Fashion Blogger

During summer it is all about Kimono’s for Ricci-Lee.

“Being a true winter girl I struggle to dress in summer without all the lovely layers, but I have finally found a fabulous solution- Kimono’s. Fun, flirty and the perfect item for this summer. Whether attending events or walking the streets of Jozi this is certainly my summer must have item, she adds.”

Darrin Thomas – The Fully Packed Bag

Marketing Manager, Travel Blogger and GQ Top 10 Best Dressed Men 2016

“Gold or silver? Metallic shoes are the street style trend from London Fashion Week you can wear now. The metallic shoe is everywhere from the runways to the high street and while some consider it over the top, others believe that it is a great fashion trend that is here to stay. While it might look terrific and certainly turn heads, it is easily something that can become overkill if not worn perfectly. I love to pair my metallic shoes with a simple monochrome outfit to make it stand out. I am loving the new Gucci metallic sneakers and am currently in the process of designing a pair of striking silver Nike ID’s!”

Trevor Stuurman – Stuurman Style Diary

Blogger, stylist and creative influencer. Faultless style, taste and incredible camera skills have made Trevor a well-known, household name in the South African fashion industry.

“Anything by Laurence Airline, made in the Ivory Coast. This shirt is beautifully constructed and speaks of modern Africa.”
