every day should be women’s day

APART FROM THE FACT it is my birthday month, an event I regard with growing ambivalence, August is a month I love, if only because winter is dying and spring is being born. More significantly, August is Women’s Month. It, too, is something about which I feel ambivalent. On the one hand, I wish that a Women’s Month wasn’t necessary; that every day was Women’s Day. On the other, it’s a time to celebrate women’s growing emancipation and focus on what still holds us back. In many societies (though by no means all), women have come a long way. We can vote. We are not confined to the bed or chained to the kitchen sink. We have access to contraception. And if he’s a bastard, we can divorce him. Many of you…

‘A white button-up shirt is the ultimate evergreen,’ says Amy Venter, founder of Durban-based label Jane Sews. It’s this focus on high-quality wardrobe classics that underscores the brand. Choosing to take the unconventional route of not designing seasonal collections or showing at local fashion weeks, Amy and her team instead create ‘the kind of garment that will be relevant in your wardrobe forever . Amy launched Jane Sews in 2011 – during her final year at Lisof fashion school – after a childhood of pulling apart vintage dresses with her mother. This hands-on approach is still evident today, with all Jane Sews pieces created by a small team of craftspeople. ‘We believe clothing should honour all the hearts and hands that touched it along the way,’ Amy says.

a warm up

I am drawn to decadent tones reminiscent of merlot or pots of turmeric. There is something regal yet effortless about a deep burgundy lip and this season dark makeup has inspired a warmer approach to the gothic vampire-esque look. Adopt a minimalist take with precision-lined lips paired with a fresh-faced canvas, dewy highlights, and a dusting of burnt orange or apricot on the eyelids. These tones don’t have to stop here: Work a matte bronze contour into the hollows of the cheeks over barely there coverage and channel a sultry scent with amber or floral notes . @ntnt9 @londam_holland_ WIN!

The new ponytail trend is a modern blend of sophistication and childlike charm as seen at Prada, Dior and Michael Kors. Loosely bound locks at the nape of the neck and weavings of accessories bring this trend from playground to office. Run mousse through the hair to lift the roots. Comb through and pull hair loosely to the nape of the neck, positioned slightly off centre. Catch flyaways with a finishing spray, and clip your high ponytail to the side with an embellished barrette. COMPILED BY NOKUBONGA THUSI PHOTOGRAPHS IMAXTREE.COM, ISTOCK/GETTY IMAGES, SUPPLIED…
