This time of the year calls for out with the old in with the new when it comes to your wardrobe. Throwing out is easy. It’s deciding what to replace last season’s fads with.
Here are some of the fashion staples we find necessary for your closet this time of the year:
A Midi Skirt
It can double up as a work and play outfit, covers up enough flesh for those cool days, but still offers some breathing space for warmer days. In Pretoria, this item is a must, as it caters for all your needs wardrobe-wise.
Jeans, of course, come in handy in any season. The high-rise denim is still very much in fashion and a high-waisted denim is therefore a must-have fashion item for your closet. Try getting hold of loose jeans, a comfortable, current trend.

Block heel, black ankle boots are the in item for fall. Add some silver studs and a buckle, and you’re sure to look the part when it comes to being in fashion.
A Light Jacket
Corduroy blazers are very much a thing now. Wear it with anything – from jeans to fancy slip dresses.
If you’ve been keeping an eye on the runways, you’ll know that cargo pants were all over the show. It’s definitely a must-have for autumn. Throw in a pair of leopard skin slip-ons and you’re Pretoria’s biggest fashionista! According to Siyavuya Dondolo, stylist for Top Billing, leopard will be hitting us hard this winter – from shirts to shoes.
They’re big and they’re back. Headbands haven’t looked so chic in many years. Combine your autumn wardrobe with some trendy headbands and you’ll surely be the talk of the town.

Siyavuya Dondolo says that pieces taking you back to the 60s, 70s and 80s will be in the spotlight this season. Think bell-bottom pants, retro patterns and funky sunglasses.
Speaking of sunglasses, wearing a pair of specs has become the new sexy. Luxottica’s optical trends suggest that transparent framed glasses like those from Vogue or Burberry’s leopard print glasses will definitely put you on the A-list.
100% Bamboo Socks
Your feet will need to be kept warm in some way and why not with Sexy Socks? For every pair of socks sold, a pair of school socks are given to a South African child in need.
