Fashion trends designed for you

The biggest trend of 2018 is you! Kelly Fung fashion expert at Superbalist says it’s all about individuality. “2018 sees a continued embrace of identity and individuality; it’s about really expressing who you are through what you wear. So in other words it doesn’t really matter what you wear, as long as you’re sporting the real you and throwing in a trend or two you are good to go.

 For Women


  1. Florals


One of the die-hard trends that will never really go away. What is important here is that shapes and prints change as do the garments they find themselves on. For the beginning of the year, floral slip dresses as well as two-piece sets are a hit. Fast forward to the cooler months and you’ll be seeing a darker, moodier floral in the form of embroidery, digi prints and even in a painterly effect.


  1. The Blazer


Another item that won’t ever really get old, if you haven’t invested in a well-fitted blazer yet, now is the time because the spotlight is on this power item. Channelling the 80s, we’re loving the checked blazer, be it in gingham or heritage check. Think strong, power shoulders and slightly oversized shapes. If you have to, borrow from your grandfather’s closet. Trousers are an obvious pairing but for a true fashion take, try it with a mini-skirt a la the 1988 Working Girl film.


  1. The Trucker Jacket

For a more casual trend, the trucker is having a moment too. What makes this piece of outter wear so special is its oversized nature, almost as if you stole if from your boyfriend. Wear it with anything really, but also don’t be afraid to throw it over a sparkly dress for some high contrast. It will be sure to turn heads.


  1. The Mini Skirt

Also making a comeback is the mini skirt. Tuck in a logo tee or a pretty blouse and voila – effortless cool. Of course, denim is the go to option here, but as winter hits, switch to vinyl, velvet, suede or even corduroy.


  1. Pleats


There are some of us that aren’t too keen to show leg, in which case we are thankful the pleated skirt is going nowhere. The ease of movement of the pleated skirt is what makes this garment a keeper. Flattering in all forms, the mid-length skirt goes perfectly with this season’s kitten heel.


 For Men 


  1. The Mandarin Collared Shirt

A fresh take on the typical work shirt, the mandarin collar is a must have for the sophisticated guy who is looking to do something different and experiment with his daily uniform, without compromising on the polish of course.



  1. The Trucker Jacket

As with the girls, the trucker is as big for the guys. We love it paired with anything, even pushing the idea of denim on denim. Take it one step further by switching out the casual tee for a dress shirt.



  1. Investment Denim 

For 2018, men will be looking to invest in denim, if they aren’t already. This means spending a little more for jeans that will only get better with age. Imagine a pair of trousers that, as they get older, mold your body better or its fabric gets more character. Quality is key.


  1. Stripes

Stripes for boys, in the form of tees or soft shirts. Layering a shirt underneath is one way to reinvent the look.


  1. The Long Line Tee

When it comes to tees, the updated long line tee is still cool. Last season it was paired with a pair of skinny trousers, this year, match it up with a pair of loose, but tailored  cropped trousers and high top sneakers

Bespoke baby gear, designed with the supermom in mind!

When it comes to baby brands, there are so many great companies out there producing some incredible stuff. On an international level, we are of course envious of some of the adventurous, fun and fabulous products on the market (not all of which we can always get our hands on), so we simply cannot contain ourselves when every now and again we stumble across some equally great brands produced on our very own doorstep…


50 Shades of Pink

When it comes to wine, especially rosé, there are loads of guys who won’t touch it. Maybe it’s because they prefer a beer or a more refined spirit; maybe it’s because it comes in a stemmed glass, who knows?. What we can say though, based on the confessions of our local wine fundi, Jan-Nico Coetzee, is that even the tough guys have a palate for rose, and thanks to the bottled beauties listed below, we now know just why.
