The holidays are almost here, which gives us every right to dress as eccentric or as laid back as we want. It’s also the time to start thinking about Christmas gifts and who really deserves that Hermès scarf this year. With so many amazing night markets and exciting pop-up shops, Jozi sure knows how to keep us on a trial of goody hunting as we sashay with rooftop cocktails into the festive season.

What To Wear:
We recently explored some great trends from New York Fashion Week and with temperatures soaring, we suggest you try out some of our favorite Summer trends. We absolutely adore the use of pastels this season. Try sea-foam green, soft pinks and heavenly blues in your ensembles. For festive events at night, we highly suggest you give your rock ‘n roll side a night out on the town. Think Dolce and Gabanna’s piano skirt and tailored cropped jackets with booties or pumps. Comfort is a huge trend this Summer too, so don’t feel drab when you choose sneakers over heels this season. In his latest collection, Hilfiger shows us that stylish can be comfy!
