The Tailored simple silhouette of the A-line design ensured that the 70’s fashionista’s stayed elegant and feminine. In fabrics like suede for a soft and delicate touch, adding patchwork or fringe elements to boost the design aesthetic.

What would the 70’s be without the retro high waists, whether that’s a mini, midi or maxi skirt or a pair of jeans, pants or shorts, pair it with slim-fitting tops in order to emphasize the waist design of the bottoms.

Summer Style: Culottes

Shorts can be a tricky one. Either you’re a massive fan and love getting your legs out for the summer, or you hate your knees and shy away from even a cropped pair of trousers. However, this summer there could be a solution: culottes.

WEARING PINK

Pink, reminds me of being a little girl and as an adult the last thing you want is to look like a little princess when you are wearing it. Here are a few hints and tips on how to wear pink like a woman and not like a little girl.

You just love pink but as a strong career women you do not want to seem to girly. Wearing pink in an office setting, opt for a fitted shift dress or a power suit in the shade that complements your colouring. Stay clear of girlish fabrics like lace, chiffon instead go for silk, cotton or linen.

If you are going for a brighter pink shades, can be a bit much in one outfit. So rather go for a splash especially if you are wearing muted colours, that hint of pink will liven it up.

Mixing pink printed pieces are great way to spice up the colour. Add elements like contrasting accessories to break the colour.

Stylish Destinations - Cape Town

1 South Africa Menswear Week February 2015

South Africa is one of the most diverse and captivating countries in the world. Last month, I had a chance to spend three fabulous weeks travelling around the country and getting to know its vibrant and cosmopolitan cities.

Cape Town is the second-most populous city in South Africa and Africa's most popular tourist destination. It is a city of contrasts, where old colonial buildings stand side by side with architecture from the 1960s and contemporary designs. It is easy to get around on foot as most of
the major attractions are concentrated within the walking distance.

"Cape Town is the quintessential melting pot: it is a city alive with creativity, colour, sounds and tastes. While walking through the city's streets and meeting its people, you will fall in love with its natural beauty, creative freedom and incredible spirit. Cape Town is a city where
the unexpected is always just around the corner." (Source: Cape Town's tourism website)

The line-up for the fashion showcase in February 2015 hosted an impressive list of South African and African fashion designers, ranging from emerging talent, Rich Mnisi, Jenevieve Lyons, to the up-andcoming,Lukhanyo Mdingi and the more established designers, Craig Port, CSquared, and Shaldon Kopman's Naked Ape.

This initiative was the first men's focused fashion platform in Africa,showcasing three days of menswear on the runway.

SHOPPING IN STYLE

Long Street is lined with fashionable shops, street cafés, dance clubs, and some of the best wine bars in the city. The area is constantly buzzing with activities and it's one of Cape Town's best spots for browsing during the day or for a big night out with friends. Try Mama Africa for tasty food and live music performed nightly by young local
musicians.

Cape Town boasts many upmarket malls and shopping centres where shoppers are truly spoilt for choice. Adderley Street is not only the city's most historic main road, but also one of the busiest shopping areas. The Adderley Street Flower Market adds a splash of colour to the historical city centre. For the last 100 years, the flower market has sold an inexpensive selection of fresh blossoms to the people of Cape Town and has become a must-see attraction for visitors to the city.

A nearby St Georges Mall, with a combination of street stalls, traders, art galleries and African souvenir shops, is an interesting shopping destination. Once a busy city street, it is now a comfortable pedestrian area with a wide range of live entertainment, stylish restaurants and
coffee shops.

Maya Prass is a young label offering bright colourful clothing and accessories. Their pumps are hand made locally and are available in a wide selection of prints and colours. Each shoe is made with a tan resin
sole, low heel, and functional ties. They are 100% cotton, comfortable, and what's really important, animal friendly. Maya Prass designs are available at upmarket retailers across the city.

Unique and captivating, The Bromwell Boutique Mall offers a great selection of limited edition and one-off pieces of art, jewellery and highend fashion and accessories from South Africa and abroad. Located in the up-and-coming Woodstock district - one of Cape Town's oldest suburbs - this fashionable place should be a must-see destination for every fashionista visiting the city.

Happy shopping!
