Johannesburg – We may be under Lockdown but that is no reason to live in your tracksuit pants or pyjamas.
You don’t have to be going anywhere to look and feel fantastic for yourself.
We love local and adore Ephraim Molingoana’s menswear collection Ephymol which made its debut at South African Fashion week in 2002.
Known for its bold prints, fusions and fitted suits, he makes me wish I was a man.
The brand has moved with the trends but always retained it’s quality, so we asked him what he recommended we wear to stay stylish in this indoor chill.
1)I recommend leather ….all coats or pants. You can never go wrong with leather as it makes you look rich.
2An oversize coats for women is very sexy and can be dressed up or down.
3) Chunky knits are not just for Christmas so get warm and stylish.
4) You have to get a METALLICS jackets ,dresses and shoes…all metallics, it’s the new Black!
5) Lux sportswear is hot because there is never a reason to look like a slob.
6) You might not like it but vintage multiple colour retro sneakers are very hot right now.
7)As we know trends always make a comeback and this current hot trend is the all 70s glam look
8)It may dull and cold outside but you can brighten everyone’s day with an on trend, bright coloured puffer jackets with patterns or plain.
9) No not the kind that Taxi driver’s wear on their leather jackets but trendy crochet or sequined patchwork on jackets, dresses, coats…
10)Quilted jackets and coats are a must against the cold and are very stylish with pants or over a dress.
11) Forget Bill Cosby and his jersey and get yourself a fussy jersey-don’t be mistaken for an animal.
12) We live for bold colourful checks in dresses, pants, jackets, so get yourself some if you want to be on trend in the cold.
13) Bold monogrammed clothing are another trend which is not confined to Fendi, so try it.
