Hollywoodbets, Durban July buzzes through the city as this years theme “show me the honey” hums through the population of Durban.

Patiently waiting, we are stung with the Durban July fever, and “Show me the Honey” says it all. Both local and international fashionistas all abustle prancing and strutting their creations; we are looking forward to dressing Mzansi’s ladies in beautiful, vibrant colours that charm all bystanders and punters alike… like bees to honey!

The essence of “show me the honey” can be showcased in many creative ways through fashion pieces. Dresses in gold, shades of bronzes, nudes as well as shades of blush. 

For our brave, bold fashionistas, transform the “show me the honey” theme with beautiful bright colours. Our top picks… yellow (of course!), green, pink and blue. The theme can also be represented in the beautiful tones of the city’s sunset with rays of purples, oranges and deep shades of red.

And let’s not forget beautiful floral prints and 3D applique. Flowers burst with nature’s most incredible colours and draw bees to them; so should the ladies at this year’s Durban July.

If you’re looking to keep it classic, we recommend a classic little black dress or an understated white dress with a pop of colour. Let your accessories do the talking through classic gold or brightly coloured shoes, bags and statement jewellry.

Make your dress at this year’s premier race day one to remember by showing off your taste of honey.
