This year has been another big one in the fashion and beauty industry. We’ve seen a lot of trends, moving from 2015’s all white to this year’s pajama trend. Above all, there are those trends that almost everyone loved, from our A-list celebs, to ordinary fashion lovers. 

Pajama trend: It was not so long ago when fashion slayer, Bonang Matheba appeared on Destiny magazine cover, wearing Gucci pajamas. Knowing how Joburgers love things, almost every street in Jozi was selling the same pajamas, probably not Gucci but looks very similar. Since then, sleepwear has become the new day wear.

Red roses: Ever been to a concert where everyone is wearing the same thing and you kinda feel left out because you didn’t get the memo? That’s how the jeans with red roses were trending. Almost every girl on Instagram would slay those jeans.

Fur slides: If you don’t own a pair of these, you’re probably against comfortability. Becoming a popular trend ever since Rihanna dropped the Puma Fenty slides, other outlets joined in and created more of similar slides, mostly with bigger furs and almost every girl I know has a pair a two.

Net stockings: Thanks to the cool kids who break the rules and make it a trend. Net stockings are now worn with torn jeans and cropped top. Come to Braamfontein to see how the fashionistas do it there.

Kimonos: These are probably the best thing to come out of 2017. Kimonos can we worn with anything, even on its own. They can also be used as sarong, light shoulder cover up, you just need that creativity of playing around with your clothes.
