The classic monochrome blouse is an absolute essential for every spring wardrobe. It is a definite staple that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Perfect for when you want to look effortlessly chic. We love that the light material allows you to stay cool and you can complement it with either bold or minimal accessories.  Keneiloe Nkomo – Beauty Intern

Ryan Black Pants R 1599. 95

These Ryan black pants are in my go to colour and a treasured timeless piece.  Definitely a must have item as it speaks to my love of vintage and inspired finds.  For an updated take, pair it with a sweetheart silhouette shoulder-baring shirt and a choker with classic white sneakers serving the perfect cool look for a summer’s day.

This Strappy Floral Dress from Banana Republic is a must have this season! With the bold colors, vibrant floral prints and light material, you can easily take the outfit from day to night with a pair of Banana Republic classic pumps. The flattering cut is suitable for any body type. It’s perfect for the South African summer especially when you go through four seasons in a day. Bonolo Ramathebane – Graphic Designer

Banana Republic

Wide Leg Print Pants R 1799.95

A wide-leg printed pants screams summertime! It’s easy, breezy and resort-inspired, perfect for a day in the sun. I love the idea of throwing it on as a bikini cover-up before heading to a beach bar, or taking it to the office and beyond, in an equally loose-fitting shirt for a very on trend pyjama look, paired with a strappy heel and a pop of colour on the lips. Tarryn Oppel – Fashion Director

Banana Republic

Cellular Floral Skirt R 1199.95

Summer for me is all about separates and this is versatile enough to be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Pair it with a white tee , red lip and pointed flats and I’m good to go! Nicole Newman – Beauty Editor
