Try something fresh this festive season and rock a jumpsuit instead of the traditional frock. At just R475, this floral number from Contempo is a steal! Pair it with some stilettos (Kurt Geiger strap sandal, R1 995, Spitz) and a trendy pair of statement earrings (hammered shapes earrings, R199, Accessorize) and you’ll be ready for anything the holidays can throw at you.


If you’re wanting to dress up a little more formal, the Beverley Lace pencil dress (R1 599, Forever New) is a vision in rose. Add a pair of funky sandals (like the women’s low block heel, R260, Exact) and something sparkly (vintage flower bracelet, R1 299, Sterns) for a perfectly polished look.




For something cool and casual, pick out a shirt with a fun print (like the tropical printed shirt, R349.95, Edgars), a good pair of chinos (Kiro men’s chinos, R550, Old Khaki), and some smart lace-ups (men’s smart lace-up, R340, Exact).


If you’re getting dressed up, add a snazzy shirt to a pair of smart slacks (navy stretch slim-leg suit trouser, R1 725, Kurt Geiger), and top it all off with a nice blazer (blue check formal jacket, R1 650, JCrew Menswear). A smart pair of sneaks will complete the look (Nike men’s Air Max 97 Ultra ’17 grey sneaker, R2 599, Sportscene).




A sundress and sandals is just the thing for little ladies in the summer holidays. We love the blue Shwe Shwe dress (R249, Keedo) paired with a comfy pair of denim T-bar sandals (R169.95, Edgars). The Owl clic clacs (R59, Accessorize) are the perfect flourish.


Your little princess will totally feel the part in the Iris tulle dress (R399, Superbalist), complemented by some charm-trimmed pumps (R99.95, Edgars). The flower Alice band with butterfly clips (R89, SODA Bloc) will be the cherry on the top of this sweet outfit.




This bright and breezy tropical print shirt (R199, SODA Bloc) will set the mood for the holidays, and pairing it with a comfy pair of chino shorts (R159.95, Edgars) will mean your little guy will be free to play while looking sweet as a cherub. The boy’s brogue plimsoles (R160, Exact) will complete the outfit while keeping him comfortable.


For a more formal affair, a button-up shirt (boy’s gingham long sleeve shirt, R199.99, Exact), with a good pair of trousers (guy’s chino, R279, SODA Bloc) will do the business. A lace-up shoe will round it all out (R299, Foschini).
