Words: Jabulile Dlamini-Qwesha | Photography: Steve Marais | Styling: Akim Jardine
By our definition, “must-haves” are pieces of clothing that set you up to tap into any micro trend moment that’s happening in a particular season. So, they’re part basic, part classic, part statement item in equal measure, but low key enough to prop your slay up in a number of different ways.
All things considered here are the key items you’ll need to pull off looks worth their value in street style cred, in the next few seasons to come…
An evergreen staple, denim details get a colourful face lift in the era of the revival of collegiate cool and preppy style. Opt for dark washes, primary colour splashes and pastels to keep with the youthful yet polished mood of time.
The heel of choice for style aficionado with a flair for elegance, block heels are the seasonal staple for whether you need to complete a look Blair Waldorf would love or elevate a casual combination.
Referencing retro sporty-chic vibes, relaxed fit t-shirt silhouettes are now a top style pick. Opt for pieces with brand logo, graphic slogan or athletic striping and maximise on its versatility by wearing it under a two-piece suit, with denims or as part of a tracksuit.
