South Africa’s wonderful weather means that summer dresses are a staple in our wardrobes. Short dresses, maxi dresses, sleeved, sleeveless… women of all shapes and sizes love a summer dress. Read More
This season we not only love comfortable, stretch fabrics but natural fabrics like linen and hemp make a strong appearance. Natural fabrics like these take little water to produce and are biodegradable. Brands like Asha Eleven and Isabel de Villiers have created wonderful, South African-made summer dresses in many styles.
One of the on-trend styles of the season is the tiered ruffle dress. This style is wide and loose and makes you want to twirl! The Isabel de Villiers version comes in mini and maxi length and in various vibrant colours.
Isabel’s colourful linen tunic dresses are beautiful easy-wearing dresses that can be worn belted or not. Her wrap dresses in stretchy fabric are a flattering must-buy.
Asha Eleven‘s summer hemp dresses have beautiful ruffles and ties with a boho-feel. Light, breathable and pretty.
JMVB’s Rain Maxi Dress is a best seller that returns every summer. Made from stretchy, Bon bon fabric the ankle-length dress is versatile enough to be worn out to dinner or even over swimwear.
ERRE has added slip dresses in bright, happy colours with bold sleeves to their collection. The signature “power sleeve” remains on some of their more formal dresses.
