The Polka dot trend is back and she ain’t never going nowhere ever again. Polka dot is one of those feminine trends that we girly-girls appreciate. And let me tell you, the black and white polka dot owned the Paris Spring 2018 runway. Whether it’s the oversized ’80s iterations at Carolina Herrera’s runway show or Jason’s Wu’s romantic dresses, this trend made quite the impression. There’s just something about polka dots. I ain’t never seen a black and white polka dot outfit that I didn’t like – it’s just so reminiscent of the ’60s.
Can you believe it is the last month of the year? Damn, me neither! Party season is here and like most people on the planet, finding THE outfit can be challenging. I personally do most of my shopping online these days and one of my favourite places to shop is on SUPERBALIST. With over 500 local and international fashion brands, you are bound to find something for you. And with party season around the corner, you don’t have to stress about going to different shops in search of an outfit.
Summer is here which means it is swimwear season. Queue the beach, yacht and pool parties. But first, did you know that understanding your body shape is paramount to getting the right swimwear. For example, I have somewhat of an athletic build, and petite sized boobs so if I am to wear a bikini top, I like it to be padded. I would most likely buy swimwear that flatters other parts of my body that I don’t mind being on display, like my back. I also don’t like my butt cheeks
I’m excited! My two favourite South African online retail brands are joining forces. Two is becoming one. Say what?! Some of you may have heard, Superbalist and Spree are getting married! Queue the angels humming. Yes, Spree and Superbalist will officially be a couple in early October. Spree will be taking on the name Superbalist instead of meeting in the middle with ‘Sprebalist ‘- we know who wears the pants! 😉 As it turns out, 51% of the company will be owned by Media 24 (Spree’s current shareholders) while Takealot Group (Superbalist
Figuring out what to wear can be a nightmare. Most days, I am pretty certain about what I want to wear to any occasion, be it to work or a social event. But there are also those days that I change my mind about an outfit at least 5 times. I hate those days, it literally ruins my mood. Thankfully it doesn’t happen too often. Work in itself is stressful, figuring out what to wear doesn’t have to be. I tend to lay out what I’m going to wear to work
If you’re reading this, I bet you want to know if wearing red can make you look more attractive and confident? Yes – yes, it can. How? Red is often associated with love and passion. Ever read a romance novel? red-hot are some of the adjectives used to describe a steamy scene, right? So, when you wear red it can affect the way that you are perceived. It is such a bold colour and you immediately stand out. A red lip, red shoes, red dress all point to someone who
Are you a rebel when it comes to fashion? Do you follow the rules? Or, do you make your own rules? I’m a little bit of both. I follow some rules and then I make some of my own. I’ve always been a stiletto kind of girl. It dates back to my childhood and how I attributed femininity to wearing high heels. Twenty years later, 95% of the shoes in my closet are heels. I own three pairs of sneakers and that’s about it. Heels aren’t comfortable. Some are but most
Fashion is art. That’s what I think. Much like art, fashion can be a form of self-expression. And even though fashion cannot be displayed in a frame like art, it can be linked to a certain period in time, just like art. International designers, Prada, Oscar De La Renta, Dior and Versace are some of the few designers that have taken the ‘fashion is art’ concept quite literally. From Versace’s 1991 print featuring Warhol’s Marilyn to Prada’s feminist pop art, these designers are taking fashion and art to a whole new
The best and often most difficult part about fashion is styling. Sure you can have all the money in the world but that doesn’t make you a good dresser. What makes a good dresser anyway? Knowing your body, understanding your shape, what suits you and which colours complement each other and your skin tone. Simple enough, huh? When it comes to style versatility is important. How can you wear an outfit multiple times without it looking like a repeat? Or, how can you style a look in multiple ways for
Everyone loves a wardrobe update. Whether it’s needed or wanted there’s just something exciting about new clothes. It becomes a bit embarrassing when your friends know what’s in your wardrobe as well as you do. You find yourself saying “I’m going to wear that pink dress with frills that I wore to Liz’s birthday party and Adeola’s wedding”. Or your tone becomes apologetic when you hear the dreaded question “what are you wearing?” and you say almost begrudgingly, “my black and white dress”. You don’t say much more than that
