We’re already counting down to the holidays and we’ve got our trendy outfits planned. Here‘s how to wear this summer’s hottest trends without blowing your budget.
The dress and sneakers trend lives on
We loved it last summer and we still love it now. The dress and sneaker trend is the perfect mix of fun, flirty and casual style.
This fit and flare dress is easy on the pocket and a great foundation piece for your wardrobe; wear it with strappy sandals or wedges for a smarter, smart-casual look.

Bermuda shorts are nothing short of perfect
Judging by how popular paper bag pants and shorts have been lately, it should have been obvious that Bermuda shorts were on their way back onto the rails and into our wardrobes.
If you love paperbag pants, you’ll love Bermuda shorts. If boyfriend jeans and paperbag pants had a baby in the ‘80s it would be Bermuda shorts. Soften the look with a crop top or light and feminine cami and strappy heels to complete the look.
- Stone linen shorts R159.95, Ackermans
- Legit tie front cropped cami R129, Zando
- Block heel R179.99, MRP
Button down midi skirts are a hit
A printed midi skirt says simple, carefree and breezy. It’s effortlessly stylish and needs minimum effort to complete the look.
A plain white t-shirt and comfortable sandals are an amazing way to finish off this simple look.

- White fitted cami R45.99, MRP
- Utopia multi weave ankle bar sandals R119, Zando
Cycle shorts aren’t just for cycling
Cycle shorts are just one of those looks that aren’t for everyone. If you aren’t sure about wearing cycle shorts as casual wear, then you might be convinced by these awesome leopard print tights that are definitely meant to be seen (and not just worn under your skirt in case it’s lifted by the wind).
Since cycle shorts are already on the sporty side of fashion, chunky sneakers or ‘trainers’ are the perfect shoes for this look.
- Cycle shorts-multi R249, Superbalist
- Statement fitted t-shirt R69.99, MRP
- Trainer sneaker R179.99 MRP
Off the shoulder style
The bohemian, hippie look is a practical trend for the hot summer we’re heading into. Show some shoulder in a gypsy off the shoulder dress or top for the Woodstock look.
This brown gypsy dress epitomises the look, combining rusty brown and the dress style for an unmistakable nod to 1969. Accentuate your bare neck and shoulders with drop earrings.
