this, fashion that!” “What to wear, what not to wear!” “What are the trends for
this year?” “Girl please, Wedges are so two years ago!” “Am I still allowed to
Colour-Block?”- Yes people, we all hear these types of questions and statements
at the beginning of every year and if you say not one of these questions have
passed your lips, punch yourself in the throat because your are lying!! We are
only human; we all want to be NOW and at the TOP of our fashion game and CHILD,
there is nothing wrong with that..
I have been
pleasantly surprised at how Namibians have taken to the “idea” of fashion and
so quickly over the past few years. Last year was definitely a turning point
(hopefully for the good) in the way we approached FASHION. Trends have come and
gone and we seem to have come to grips with what’s trending. Now, a piece of
advice to you budding fashionistas out there, just because something is
trending, does not mean it works for everyone. Those printed leggings that you
bought the other day, yes you, don’t necessarily work for you just because they
work for your best friend. And those shorts, brother man that you are
determined make you look good, actually don’t. We need to learn to dress for
our bodies but still keep that edge and individuality that makes our style
different from others.
fades but style is eternal”- Yves Saint- Laurent. REMEMBER THAT!
Here are a
few tips from me to you for this year. Don’t want to say dos and don’ts because
I am not trying to be your parent. Just a push in the right direction, is what
I’m giving.
·       Remember always
to try and be individual and unique but don’t get crazy
Bermuda shorts are very big this year.
 Comfort, family friendly and they are ultra chic for the summer.
Black and white is also back.
Yes ,most people put strong emphasis on floral etc but they forget that
its very classy , wearable all year round and can be used for both date night
and work.
Peekaboo pieces are in. this includes Cutouts, Midrift bearing, sheer
fabrics, slites. Etc… take a risk and go in but remember what I said earlier
dress for your body.
Statement sunglasses are a must have.
Bold strips are back
Shorts – suits
Beautiful beading and sporty dresses are also on the menu for this year.
Sorry I left out the men, this time but ill definitely have some for the
brothers out there next time.
Yours in fashion
