Party dress guide: what to shop for party season
1. The white dress
White dresses and summer go together like mint, lime, soda, simple syrup and rum. Yes to Mojito weather!
Shop: Printed Shift Dress White, LUMIN, R1,399
Or shop this short lace dress, R 899, from H&M.
2. Prints are always a good idea
Show some shoulder in printed dresses with cut-out shoulders or try a shirt dress.
Shop this local design by Loin Cloth & Ashes Medina Shirt Dress, R 990.
3. The slip
Wear it on its own or with a white tee underneath.
Or switch it up and opt for a strappy slip top and pair it with a high-waisted pair of black trousers and heels.
We love this V-neck strappy top, R 529, from H&M.
4. The unexpected statement piece
Stand out among any fashion pack in this a-symmetrical dream dress:
Shop: Springfield Printed Apron Dress Camel, Rich Mnisi, R1,799.
Or go the skirt route with this Cordelia Skirt Silver, Tamara Chérie, R2,499.
Sleeve game on point. We are coveting this dress by local designer Matte Nolim...
6. The Boho babe dress
Yes to floral dresses! Whether mini or floor-length, we are so keen to party in these fun festival looks.
Shop them here.
7. The classic LBD
Whether bodycon or off-the-shoulder, the little black dress should always be your fashion bestie.
We love these ones from MRP...
Shop them here.
Go for gold or silver metallic dresses this summer and pair it with a bright statement lip.
Or why not add some bling to your feet and opt for some gold mules like these fab ones from MRP? I think I might just get them.
Crossover gold mules, R189.99.
And why not pretend you are a giant disco ball in this sequin dress? Wear it with flats for a more relaxed vibe.
