Update your look with these summer essentials

Your wardrobe needs these summer essentials!


Another season has come and gone, and summer is finally on our doorstep. And a new season brings new trends. But don’t feel as though you need to rush out and buy a whole new wardrobe to keep up to date with the ever-changing fashion industry. By incorporating these few items into your wardrobe you can revamp almost any outfit you already have.


Culottes are the perfect pants for hot summer days. They’re loose-fitting, allowing space for your legs to breathe, plus they’re really flattering. Shop this pair at Mango for R449.

The off-the-shoulder top is a huge trend and we don’t predict it dying out anytime soon. It keeps you cool by revealing your shoulders but also covers the arms, which is perfect if you’re not 100% happy baring them completely. Try this classic white off-the-shoulder top from Mango for R499.

Add an on-trend pleated skirt to your wardrobe. We love this blush-coloured pleated skirt from Spree for R299.



The nomadic trend is huge this summer and tasselled accessories like this pair of ruby-red earrings from Spree for only R129 are one of our favourite ways to update a look with one single item.



Bell-sleeved tops and dresses are back this summer and we love that they’re so flowy and unrestricted. Try this striped shirt with floral embroidery for R649 from Mango.
