Along side makeup artist/student Mihlali Ndamase, I recently did a fashion shoot at a car park wearing uncomplicated day to night wear looks, specially since Summer time is all about effortless, easy going comfort.
It was a showcase of some of the latest summer items that can be put together. From my side, this was cheeky red embroidered shorts, hey if you got it flaunt it! A simple white vest and leopard print scrappy heels. Worn by Mihlali a black ensemble, this look consists of leggings, an off the shoulder top with a chocker necklace and strappy red heels with details of tussles and pom, poms.
Each look offers a perfect fashion item which can straightforwardly change a look from day to night, or week to weekend. The design detail make of the shorts, can be flaunted at night with a pair of heels adding to the night time look.
Relating to the white vests simplicity and classic nature it is also a great item to mix and match with just about anything, just as the black leggings from the second look. Both can be worn effortlessly matched with either a pair of your best denim bottoms or tops or a gypsy skirt or shirt that flows for the weekend.
And that is the great thing about both these looks, each can can easily be worn from day time into night time.
