All about those stripes!

All about those stripes!

Give a girl the right stripes, and she can rock any look! Well, in my case at least! I could live in stripes and IMO you can never have too many striped options in your wardrobe. I just love how stripes add that street style look to what ever you’re wearing, plus they are such versatile pieces.

Wear It Now: The Longline Waistcoat

Wear It Now: The Longline Waistcoat

One of my current obsessions at the moment is the longline vest. Also called a sleeveless waistcoat or sleeveless trench, the only thing you need to know, is that you need it in your life! It’s such an essential piece – great for layering or transitioning into different seasons, and it can be worn in so, so many different ways! It can add structure and form to any look and perfect for layering without the bulk!

One Perfect Parka, 3 Stylish Looks

One Perfect Parka, 3 Stylish Looks

I’ve wanted an olive green parka for the longest time. And I found it! I found the world’s perfect olive green parka, perfect in absolutely every way! I swear, there is nothing about this parka that I don’t absolutely love! Who ever designed it thought about everything! The fit is perfecto. And it’s got “options”; like a zip off hoodie and zip off front panel. The front panel is really cool! It’s made from a different fabric to the outer, which gives it great texture. Plus it doubles as an extra layer (between the buttons) to keep you warm. The hoodie is cute with it’s tribal print. I love the drawstring waist and the front pockets, which are in just the right place. Like I said, Perfect! It’s from Old Khaki (the best place to find amazing quality jackets) and I was amazed to find that this beaut was only R999! Pity they didn’t have more colours in the same style! I’d have bought them all! I even got to meet football legend Ryan Giggs the very first day I wore my perfect parka! On a perfectly crisp Jozi morning. Sadly, not the clearest pic, and a very rare opportunity…

5 Stylish Ways To Cuff Your Jeans Like a Fashion Blogger

5 Stylish Ways To Cuff Your Jeans Like a Fashion Blogger

Cuffed jeans look so cool and offer an easy way to create new and innovative ways to style the same pair of jeans – and make them look totally different! But there are cuffs, and then there are stylish cuffs! Check out these 5 stylista’s whose looks will inspire you to transform your jeans with nothing but a stylish cuff. 1. Supersized Skinny Cuffs I am obsessed with 5inchandup‘s style, and the way she’s supersized her cuffs in this outfit is amazing! I can’t wait to try this look! I have a pair of super long MissMe skinny jeans that I am terrified to shorten! I have yet to find someone who knows how to tailor jeans correctly, so I would rather just leave them long. Thanks to this look I am inspired to try this trend, and I quite honestly LOVE how it gives the jeans a little more detail! Just cuff your jeans, with one single fold, making sure that the end of the jeans are not too short. You want them to sit just right; skimming your ankle, all the way down, but not past your shoes. This is also a great little style trick, if you’ve got…

Trend Alert! Tartan

Trend Alert! Tartan

Hello wonderful readers! Cam from Jane Wonder here. A trend that has been poppin’ up all over my feed is tartan! Skirts, shirts, bags, hair accessories, pants, you name it. I have to admit that this is definitely more of a seasonal trend, one that is more of a winter vibe, but I have a tingly feeling in my fashion senses that this is going to filter in to South African fashion in the coming weeks, and will definitely be a hit when our shores get a little chillier next year. I’ve already found a tartan shirt at Mr Price, but they only have a few super smalls left 🙁 Here are some bloggers working the tartan trend: Ashley Madekwe from Ring My Bell | Maria, showcased on Stockholm Streetstyle |Alexandra from Lovely Pepa |Christina from Passions for Fashion | Zina from Fashion Vibe What do you think about the tartan trend; wear-it or trash-it? You can tweet me @CamGildenhuys [poll id=”35″] x Cam x

All White, All Right! How To Wear White Without Looking Boring

All White, All Right! How To Wear White Without Looking Boring

Wearing all white is no longer a trend reserved for Spring and Summer. You can see white on white year round, worn in a very imaginable way. Personally, I don’t own many white items of clothing, but I do own enough to mix and match. And that’s the point of this post, to give you a few ideas on how you can wear all white without looking boring. Here are my tips for wearing All White: Head-To-Toe White I love how Rumi Nelly of Fashiontoast is wearing white from head to toe! Don’t be afraid to try this. Just make sure that the proportions at the top and bottom are well balanced. Also, make sure that the white shoes you choose don’t look old and matronly. Accessorize! In the picture above, I am wearing white jeans and a white peplum top. It’s a very simple look. What makes this look stand out is the accessorizing. I have accessorized with a floral printed bag, pink heels & a statement necklace. By adding pops of colour or a print to you accessories, you are able to give the all white look some depth and create interest. Monochrome Black & White I love monochromatic…

It’s In The Bag! Chic, Stylish Handbags For The Bag Lady!

Hey StyleScoop readers! Brett here from Fashion by Brett Robson. With Winter slowly approaching here in SA, I know we are all starting to think of how we will be taking our style from season to season. One of my favourite ways to update a look is to add an accessory. In this case a handbag… Handbags are such a fun way to update your style without breaking the bank, unless you buy leather, but remember a leather bag will stay with you for a long time, so they are definitely an investment! Either way, you’ll come out a winner! Being a bit of a bag lady, I found some great pieces that I love and think you may too… so go ahead, be a bag lady too! 1.  Jinger & Jack R649 @ Zando 2.  Blackcherry  Handbags R299 @ 36 Boutiques 3.  Nine West R699 Black handbags are the most versatile as black goes with almost everything! Now, instead of showing you (more)plain black bags, I have chosen a few embellished ones, that will make trendy arm candy this winter. 4.  Selina R999 @ Stylemology.com5.  Zoom R459 6.  Skull bag R795 @ I LOVE The Lot7.  Zoom R299 @…

Somebody Call A Doctor…

Somebody Call A Doctor…

I think I’m getting a fever! Dr Martens… are back in! Doc’s are just one of those items that will keep coming back in fashion – kinda like bell bottoms, bad eighties hairstyles and plastic fantastic accessories. Makes me regret lending my pair of 10 ups (yes they were quite rare) to a “friend” who never returned them! Grrr! If you’re reading this, I want my friggin shoes back! I lived in my Doc’s – I seriously remember wearing them every single day for about two years solid, and they never came apart. I was so hooked on them that I bought another pair in oxblood – remember those? – despite them being two sizes too big. Needless to say I was young and stupid and I wore them. Those buggers I do still have, but I doub’t I’ll be rocking boat feet anytime soon! What do you think? Would you wear them? Take our poll below or add your comments at the end. For now, here are some cool styles of Doc’s and how fashion bloggers are rocking them… White Docs? Carla Estevez via the blog The Fashion Through My Eyes Ruby Red anyone? Cute look for a festival…
