It is already hot hot hot in Joburg. This week mid-spring feels more like mid-summer. It can be a challenge to stay cool and stylish when you’re running about in this heat as we invariably are each day. Inspired by the girls of L.A., a city which stays relatively warm throughout the year, we’ve put together some outfits using summer fashion from South Africa to beat the heat, and stay cool in style.
SUMMER OUTFIT 1
A simple tank and statement trousers
Up-style a simple black tank top with high-waisted statement trousers like the gorgeous JMVB St. Leger Palazzo Pants. Accessorize with a simple gold earring and strappy sandals for a cool, comfortable yet sophisticated summer style.

SUMMER OUTFIT 2
We’re loving the GOOD tailored shorts this season. They come in a navy linen blend, and the fun exclusive GOOD Oranges print in a natural rayon. Combine the GOOD gardening shorts with the matching navy linen-blend cami or Oranges boxy top for a playsuit vibe. Alternatively, you can mix them up or simply pair your shorts with a white cotton tee, some cool flats and a crochet handbag for laid back summer style.
