Pastels always ruffles always adds a beautiful romantic flair to your sunny wardrobe. I added a bit on an edge, by playing with rose and berry pleathers!

Anchor your ruffle top with a fitted skirt, to balance the sleeve volume.

A sheen jacket is sassy, chic and trendy!

Team up your look with a chunky neckpiece and a gorgeous platform to complete your look. 😉

This summer, the sheer ‘Ballerina’ trend is probably the biggest allround. I decided to show it off in a beautiful, whimsical style instead of the layered urban looks we see so often.

I designed an empire maxi with an angel sleeve which could provide some arm coverage, if you need it!

The empire lengthens your torso…

And when layered over a tonal (similar colour) dress, it softens the look.
Try yours with a shorter dress as an option to the maxi and slightly show off your legs!

There is nothing more beautiful than an African woman rocking her beautiful fro. It is undeniable that a movement has started, where woman celebrate their natural hair…and I love it!

I recently shot with a ‘fro’ and it took me 6 hours to get my hair to at least look like some sort of ‘jerry/springy’ curl. Sadly, my natural hair is ‘wavy’ and dry, rather than ‘springy’ and fabulous…… oi! In an ideal world, I would rock this look all day, evrrrrrrry day, but let’s call a spade, a spade, and just work the best with what you have!Heeeheeehee.

Pleather dresses are always on trend, and a shift is a fab way to still add sophistication to what may seem a ‘very tough’ look.

Fringe is back, baby! So why not a cute cropped jacket with boyfroend jeans, and the imfamous ‘leopard’ heel?

That biker and statement – skirt – and – T combo! Yes – you need a biker. Its aseasonal and you can wear it with anything!!

If you don’t know it yet hun, the pleated skirt is here for life!

Sheers – Mesh, chiffons, eyelet mesh, anything ‘see-through’ is spot on trend this season. So instead of rocking it with a flat, I opted for a sneaker! It’s not only ubercool, its comfy darling!

Have fun experimenting with looks. Remember – dress for your shape, and use elements of fashion to complete your looks. Style always preceeds fashion!

This is one question that is undeniably one of the most concerning questions that affect every woman. How do I know which colour suits me? Well hun – you can pull of any colour as long as you keep the colour that does not work for you, away from the face…..Excuse me? Away from the face?

Yes – if you are blonde and struggle with dull greys and melanges, why not wear it as a ponti jacket, and wear a colour that compliments your skin in a shirt, scarf or top? Yes – it works!!! Have a look at the colours that compliment you below 🙂 And please take risks too!!

Milky – Vanillas

You have natural blonde or caramel hair colour, with blue, hazel or green eyes, and
quite fair. You look great in pastel or sorbet hues, including pinks, soft blues, mint, etc.
Dare to wear deep pinks, aquas, and brights as well!!!

Dark chocolate –

You have deep beautiful dark skin and can wear most colours! Even if you may not feel confident, you can look it!! Go for bright bold colour!!!

Don’t be afraid of golds and bronzes, this is so gorgeous on you. Make sure you do not wear
extremely deep chocs without a pop of bright lipcolour.

Fiery

You are a natural red head, with freckles (in most instances)

You pull off autumn colours beautifully – Deep shades of reds, purples, browns, etc.
However, you can look pretty fiery in brights as seen above

I love how Emma Stone experiments with bold colour – yellows and oranges. You should too!

Toffees

You are olive skinned and mostly brunette. You can tan beautifully and probably one of the most desired skin colours, because of your versatility.

Much like dark skins, you break rules of colour, but ensure that if you wear nude, that you add some sort of pop in colour, be it in an accessory or bold lip!

Be adventurous with your colours! Take risks, and if you are still a bit uncomfortable with bold colour, introduce it in bite sizes in your accessories. 🙂

I love mixing up prints! Especially if it the same family/hues. For example monochromes (Black and whites)

These Images show monochromes mixed with a slight pop of colour! Great for work!

I opted for a more laid black monochrome mix, with a white 60’s frame…

.. a black and white palm print off shoulder, teamed with a grid print skirt…

…a plain black sling back with chrome handles..

…and a metallic flat!

There is no need to restrict or contrive your look. Play around with prints.

As long as they are similar hues….mash it up! 🙂

I am a sucker for sneakers and denims. At times you just want to kick of the heels and rest your feet.

Below are some easy ‘off – duty’ looks, which are effortless and comfy, especially in transitional weather!

Peak caps in cute prints are fun, and an easy way to camouflage
‘bhd’ (bad hair days)!

Team it with an old school biker….

…..a plain t……

…….statement sneakers….

…and a super stride!!! Woopwoop!!
