Our suitcase starts here…
Crochet bikini, pyjama shirts and a ton of raffia – this is the start of your wanderlust wardrobe.
The island villa
Raffia, frills and a soft pastel palette create an exotic island worthy wardrobe.
Style tip – splash out on an off the shoulder sundress and tick off the season’s most talked-about trend. Add texture to the soft colour palette by mixing in a raffia bag and hat and a whole lot of frills!!
The long haul
Travelling somewhere tropical? Be sure to pack your prints for a spritz of poolside glamour.
Style tip – slip a versatile pyjama shirt over your bikini as a luxe cover-up while beside the sea. Alternatively, team it with wide-legged pants and sliders by night.
Enhance sun-kissed cheekbones with a liquid highlighter.
The SA road trip
Take your inspiration from the runway and hit the road with knitted stripes and a base of tan and black.
Style tip – pile on the pom-poms, tassels and stripes – more is more for this BOHO vibe.
Saving your bucks and staying on home ground? Grab a pair of Birkenstocks and stay stylish by mixing casual denim with khaki and stripes.
Style tip – update your look with a stylish tote in rainbow stripes and playful smiley logos.
Feel good accessories
Flip-flops with soul
After Rob and Paul Forkan and their 4 siblings lost their parents in the 2004 Tsunami, they were inspired to create Gandys- a cool travel accessories brand with a mission to give back to the devastated Sri Lankan community. Ten percent of all Gandy’s profits go to their charity orphans for orphans and the initiative has been so successful that they’ve not only built ,but then extended, an orphanage in Sri Lanka and have plans for similar projects in Malawi and Nepal. So look for their products online – you’ll not only look good, you’ll be doing good too.
You can do some winter reading with their book “The Tsunami Kids” available now on takealot.com.
This month – tennis fever…

Jealous? Us too.
Talk about acing it…
