What are the finer things in life?


1.     Thebe Magugu pleated skirt, R1 199, Woolworths

This asymmetric skirt creates such an interesting silhouette, taking the on-trend midi skirt to a whole new level, giving you a uban-chic aesthetic immediately. Designed for Woolworths by South African-born designer Thebe Magugu. P.S. Navy is the new black!

2.     Estée Lauder Pure Colour Envy Hi-Lustre light sculpting lipstick, R410 (in Drop Dead Red)

New season means one thing: new red lipstick please! This Estée Lauder lipstick saturates your lips with lustrous colour. 

3.     Chanel Chance Eau de Parfum spray, R1 600

There is always room for a classic scent and, even more so Chanel, in your beauty routine. This floral fragrance intertwines pink pepper, jasmine and amber patchouli, laced with white musks and vanilla…

4.     Sandal booties, R1 299, Country Road

One of the biggest feet trends for summer 2017 is shoes that emphasise your ankle. These sandal booties do just that and are an easy season-transition heel. 

5.     Cross-body satchel, R1 349, Witchery

Invest in a cross-body bag this season: structured and stylish, this leather choice is finished with a glam bold buckle, and features a lined inner and a sleek strap for ease.

6.     Prada sunglasses, R3 990, Sunglass Hut

Yes, these are showstoppers: round sunglasses that enjoy a sleek grey frame and dark ombré lenses to keep your look on point. 

7.     Velvet loafers, R899, Witchery

While velvet can be seen all over the runway this season our favourite velvet version is without doubt the velvet loafer. Rich velvet, in navy, make these loafers the shoe to obsess over this season. They can be dressed up and will add depth to your looks. 

8.     Kimono, R2 399.95, Ted Baker

This sensational floral kimono is for spring. Its soft, eye-catching print will not only say “welcome to the new season” but also come in handy for when you need an extra lightweight layer. 


1.     Fisherman's jacket, R999, Woolworths

This is the perfect jacket to take on outdoor adventures, especially those that may be wet and windy. Made from lightweight, quick-drying fabric, its slim-fit cut is a stylish spring coat that will be a long-lasting transitional item in your wardrobe. 

2.     Longmarket Barber aftershave balm, R130, Woolworths  

A lightweight, cooling aftershave balm leaves your skin feeling soothed and moisturised. The anti-bacterial lotion is formulated with a distinct woody aromatic scent.

3.     Classic leather belt, R499, Country Road

Finish off just about any look with this classic leather belt, featuring a cool metallic buckle for a touch of style. 

4.     Ace denim shirt R599, Old Khaki

The denim shirt is a menswear essential that deserves a place in any style-conscious modern wardrobe. Stay away from pairing this shirt with jeans or any plaid, though. While denim is western inspired one doesn’t want to go too cowboy! 

5.     Sweat shirt, R699, Billabong

Melange became big a couple of years ago and it has stayed right up there in the trend lists. A soft grey version is basically the only tracksuit top an adult man can get away with wearing out of the house, and it adds an easy urban style to your wardrobe.

6.     Chinos, R2 399.95, Ted Baker

These smart-casual tan chinos with a modern slim-fit cut feature all the right style touches for extra comfort and style. The best thing about chinos is their versatility so don’t be worried about what you pair them with.

7.     Persol spectacles, R2 690, Sunglass Hut

These two-tone glasses are a stylish twist on a classic spectacle frame.

 8.     Arthur Jack Woodstock messenger, R4 499, Thread and Miller

Make an impression with a stylish 100% leather messenger bag. The contrasting leather accents draw your eye to the details. Practical, too, with sturdy handles and three different compartments.
