let the good times roll

The festive season has arrived in all its heat and glory. The popular question from the office water cooler to WhatsApp conversations then becomes, “What are your holiday plans?” As South Africans, we celebrate in different ways. Our experience is not only limited to our country or to the urban surroundings we work and live in, but culturally as well. December in some South African families means initiation ceremonies, weddings and other celebratory family gatherings. When the festive season rolls around some think of going back ‘home’. There is that specific period from mid December where some of us pack our travel essentials and make the big commute to wherever ko gae is. The soul craves a family bond, traditional food, the rural surroundings, the humble way of life away…

Barbara Polo, Witchery womenswear design manager, shares tips on the upcoming swimwear trends for the season. THE SPRING/ SUMMER ’18 TRENDS THAT ARE GOING TO BE EVERYWHERE High-waisted bikinis. Printed or plain, high-waisted bikini bottoms and bikini tops with square necklines are key. INCORPORATE SWIMWEAR INTO YOUR DAILY STYLE For day-time dressing, wear darker pieces, like navy, deep red or burnt orange, with denim shorts. For summer nights, I would style black with black for a sleek evening look. Berry tones are also great for swimwear, and can make you feel beautiful in the height of summer.

If you must wear some pale colours, or are eyeing up flirtatiously revealing necklines, clear it…
