Durban July 2019 : How to dress to the theme
Stars of Africa’ is this year’s theme to Durban’s prestigious racing event, The Durban July. Not sure what to wear ? We have broken down the theme into 5 elements.
Embrace your African roots and go in traditional African fabrics and Shweshwe prints. Bold colours and dramatic full skirts are the way to go. Animal print is on trend so why not wear a stylish leopard print dress this year.
Shine and Sparkle
Enhance the star in you and shine, shine, shine to the starry aspect of this year’s theme. Fishscale sequins, mirror sequins and foil fabrics are our top choices for you.
Country lanes meet Suburban streets
This year’s theme calls country and suburbia to collide. Jumpsuits are not only on trend but look perfect in traditional fabrics and animal prints for the ‘Stars of Africa’ theme. Pair a beautiful pair of slacks with a dramatic African printed top for an alternative look.
Step out with pride at the Durban July in fashion and being South African. Incorporate Zulu beads, ostrich feathers and bright colours to your dress to compliment our multi cultural country.
