Nomvelo Chalumbira, the co-founder and editor of the award-winning youth culture blog Melenial, took us through three of the must-have items for this season. Live SA writer, Ntandoyenkosi Dlamini modeles some of the looks for us.

The new age bomber jacket

Urban Zulu bomber jacket with new age african prints.

“The new age bomber jacket allows you to diversify your fashion style to suite different occasions. Whether you want to dress it up or down, this sports-luxe-inspired essential is a must-have any season.”

Old  school mules are the new cool

Franco Sarto Mule and Stacy Adams loafer from thrifters on President Street, Johannesburg.

“The return of the mule. It makes me happy to see the youthful restoration of the mule. It has become that go-to pair you will be unable to resist slipping into.”

You can never go wrong with African print


Q8 African print flappy shorts and loose trousers.

“We have not seen the last of this trend, and I am looking forward to seeing designers innovatively use different types of African fabric. Personally, I am a fan of the African print two-pieces that we are seeing a lot of. I am a sucker for a matching set of anything, whether it be a crop top and skirt or top and pants.”
