South African designers who had strong
metallic pieces in their collections. This look is no
longer reserved for evenings.

4. Shoulders: Shoulders made a big
comeback this year and the trend will

major bone and skin.

any summer wardrobe, however each

whimsical, bold and festive. Mixed with fruit and
abstract shapes found on flowing dresses and
skirts. Designer: Tasleem Bulbulia
6. The high-cut swimsuit: Popular in the
late 1980s and early 1990s, the highwaisted,
high-cut swimsuit is the
ultimate sexy beach look. Supermodels
of the time – Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell
and Cindy Crawford – rocked these costumes. But
it was Pamela Anderson’s red swimsuit in the TV
series Baywatch that elevated this look to iconic
status. Designer: Be Yourself by Puma and Raquo
7. Tassels: Tassels can spruce up any
outfit. Whether it’s a small detail or part
of your accessories, go ahead and be
playful. Tassels also add a fun element
to boho tops and dresses, even bags and sandals.

8. The Choker: This 1990s nostalgia
trend came back in various styles and
shapes this year. On the market now
are minimalist shoelace – thick or thin –
velvet ribbon chokers, some with dainty jewellery
pieces. A choker looks good paired with low
neckline tops and dresses.
9. Stripes: Stripes in classic silhouettes
such as fitted dresses, A-line skirts and
wide-legged pants in different colours
are super chic. Pair your striped outfit
with solid colours, for example striped pants with
a solid colour top.
Designer: Jasper Conran.
10. Geometric Patterns: Geometric
patterns and shapes are
increasing in popularity, not only
in fashion but in home décor.
Go for bright-coloured dresses and knee-length
fitted skirts and don’t be afraid to mix and match
different patterns in one outfit.
