As sad as it is for some (especially the teens) I think Summer is officially over here in Sunny Cape Town and it's something we all have to deal with. For me it's not all that sour as winter fashion amazes me more and more every year. I know I haven't done a trend post in a while but it's got to happen sooner or later right? (Right)
So here's a quickie
As excited as I am for the winter layering looks, I'm hardly excited to get out of bed when the rain falls at early hours of the morning. Personal struggles aside though, Camo/Camouflage is one of the main trends that has hit SA stores for winter 2013. From jackets to trousers and even snap backs, local stores are stocking them piece by piece. The garment that caught my eye the most while doing some window shopping with our fashion contributor was definitely the military jacket. I've seen a few at local stores such as: Sportscene and woollies and they come in plain military styles as well.
The Baseball hat
If you've seen some of the latest international fashion weeks for Autumn/Winter you would have noticed these almost leather baseball caps being a runway-trend by the hottest designers and even rocked by locals who attended as well. It's so easy going but chic at the same time due to its leather finished front. Not to long ago I spotted a few at a Legit Fashion store here in Cape Town. Take a look at the collage below to see the trend in full swing.
So news went out a couple of weeks back that Grammy Award Winner and Fashion Icon 'Rihanna Riri Fenty' will bless Cape Town shores later this year with her ever changing style and amazing vocals. As excited as I am, I'm a bit put off by the fact that she performs her Diamonds World Tour in CPT on Eid night. I guess this means no airport stalking for me then. Non-the-less, I will obviously be attending the concert after celebrating the day as I'm a long time #RihannaNavy.
Take a look at how Rih wears both trends shown above and completely rocks it with confidence.
