What to wear this autumn (because being naked gets you kicked out of public places, obvs)


Half sunnies

Nope they weren't sliced in half at the top or the bottom. That's the way they're meant to be. This one has been doing the rounds for a while, and the cat eye is our absolute fave.

Get them from Vogue - the Gigi Hadid collection is epic!

Or lots of vintage stores now also carry them ;) 

Cowboy boots 

Apparently these are back in full force but unlike the return of scrunchies or ugly shoes, this is a trend I'm not too comfortable with.

Maybe it's because I've always found them so uncomfortable and hard to work with my existing wardrobe. But styled like a street style expert, I'm sure they're okay; for sitting. 

Outfits that can't make their minds up

This, I love. Fashion has evolved so much and our acceptance of fashion as a very fluid means of self-expression means that, unlike soufflé, there is no wrong way to mix and match your (wardrobe) ingredients. Layer and flirt with pairing unconventional fabrics together.

Baggy pants

Yes even cargo pants back. Same goes for baggy corduroy and even velvet trousers. Model Binx Walton knows how to pull off slouchy, that's for sure. 

Grey check

We just got a sneak peek from MRP and popping up in blazers in particular, we love a suit in this pattern. 

The look is also trickling down into accessories like bags and shoes. We are all on board. 


H&M Knee-length skirt, R429.

Poetry Lida Check Blazer, R899.

Royal blue with a side of mustard

I have often said that mustard goes with anything! And with royal blue it's a fashion flavour profile not to be sniffed at. It is almost as perfect as Nomzamo in this outfit.

Which by the way she also paired with blue eyeshadow. She knows. 

Also pair your royal blue with a mustard-coloured bag...

I'll pair blue with mustard velvet or satin for a luxe feel. This is my take in scrunchie form from my Instagram store...

Mustard satin. #aw18 #ordernow #justdropped #capetown #local #scrunchies

Also great in a necklace or earrings. Love these Pichulik jewels...

Or as an effortless part of a layered ensemble...
