SUGAR AND SPICE:

ERRTHANG NICE

 

Like the girl next door, a well-fitted skinny and a pop of pastel are all that’s needed to make your getup grown-up worthy. Add some hair deco and, of course, a patterned sneaker for the perfect measure of sweetness and sass. See our YALERI

GO BOLD:

BRIGHT ACCENTS  

 

Who said you have to run to wear a running shoe? Make a statement with the forever-classic black and white ensemble by adding a burst of colour with a tasteful tank or a statement necklace. Mirrored aviators are serious added plus. See our LENTISCOSA.

COOL KID:

KICKIN’ IT OLD SCHOOL

 

Because there’s something about short-shorts that make them a gal’s best pal. Like the good ‘ol days, shorts and long-sleeve combos are a no-brainer. Top it off with a fedora or a bowler hat for those many a missed hair-washing days. Don’t forget to throw on a class-act sneaker for a look that is eternally cool. See our SEDINA.

BAD GIRL ANTICS:

CAUSE YOU CAN

 

It’s just about the most effortless thing since sliced bread: a sports jersey and high tops. If you prefer to leave a little more to the imagination, try pairing your favourite jersey with distressed denim instead. Keep it low key in the accessory department, this look demands enough all on its own. See our YIEVEN

BOXED IN:

SIMPLE AND STRUCTURED

 

Steer clear of saggy bottoms with a structured a-line skirt. Play up on solid lines with a pair of square framed sunnies and easy-wear leather accents. Skip the stilettos – but who would say such a thing? We do! Go for a flatform type sneaker to maintain the formidable appearance of this well constructed outfit. See our ETAULIAN
