Summer is Coming: The Fashionomics Africa Seasonal Style Guide

There’s less than a week to go until we enter the summery month of June, and while we’re all hoping towards a season of respite following a tough winter and spring, we are all very well aware that this summer, is going to be very different. All the things we usually associate with the coming season have been pretty much put on the backburner. The festivals and concerts we’ve been fevering towards for months; the fashion shows we were going to attend to prepare ourselves for trending seasonal styles; the holidays, weddings and parties we’ve all been looking forward to – they’re all going to be postponed this year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, this does not mean the summer has been cancelled altogether.

Summer is coming, and while many of us aren’t feeling our bright and colourful selves at the moment, we can still bring a little joy to our lives and that of others, by keeping our fashion choices creative and positive. The right outfit has the power to boost your confidence and alter your current state of mind, and this vibe extends to those around you as well. If you’re feeling optimistic, chances are you’ll infect others with your attitude too. To help you get there, we’ve put together Fashionomics Africa’s ultimate seasonal style guide with all the best garments available via our online marketplace. Get to browsing today, start spreading fashionable joy as soon as next week!

Ara Dress by Mieko Michi

The summer season calls for bright, eye-catching colours that match the tones of the season – vibrant yellow sunflowers, turquoise waters, scorching soil in hues of burnt sierra. Mieko Michi’s Ara Dress comes in the kind of yellow that simply cannot be ignored, like a sunflower reaching toward the sun. This beautifully fitted midi-length dress features quarter sleeves with Ankara hems and a cloth design attached at the waist, contrasting wonderfully against the demanding yellow. The Ankara buttons at the front center of the neck, complete the one-of-a-kind Ara dress.

This bold item is all about the detail – the craftsmanship, intricately hand-knotted applique and breast pocket. This item will be sure to make you stand out in a crowd. Kiki’s shirt dress can be worn with a pair of skinny jeans and white canvas leisure trainers for a chill day look or sexy satin trousers and a pair of high heels for an evening look. Keep the jewellery simple, because the shirt dress is a statement in itself.

Something special happens when you merge simplicity and extravaganza, as is the case with this gold satin midi dress by Kenyan brand StyleTech by Teshie. With a curved hemline and an accentuated bodice, the Kenyan Lioness dress is figure-flattering whilst still offering optimum comfort. Its thin, animal print spaghetti straps match the delicacy of the satin fabric, whereas its golden shine captures its luxurious essence.
