With the Durban July fast approaching here are a few useful do’s and don’t’s to keep in mind.
Do: KEEP TO THE THEME
In essence of the Durban July event, sticking to the unique theme “Timeless” is mandatory. This year you have a chance to represent the iconic silhouettes of historically popular designs.
Don’t: SUPER TALL HIGH HEELS
The Durban July is a long, fun filled day which consists of a lot of walking around and socializing. Keep this mind when picking your perfect shoe this year. Remember comfort always lead to a more enjoyable time.
Do: PACK YOUR SUNGLASSES AND COATS
With Durban’s recent unpredictable weather it would be wise to have both on hand. Applying a layer of sunscreen will help prevent any unwanted sunburns.
Don’t: OVER ACCESSORIZE
Never pair a flashy necklace with an equally flashy pair of earrings, bracelet and shoe. They will compete with each other and distract from the timeless look you are trying to create. The Durban July theme this year definitely embraces the ‘less is more’ rule.
Do: WEAR A FASCINATOR
With the recent royal wedding having just taken place fascinators are everywhere. The hardest part will be to decide on the right one for your Durban July outfit, be bold and stylish in your choice. Remember if you do wear a fascinator keep your earrings small.
Don’t: TAKE ANOTHER’S WORD FOR IT
You and only you know what you like and what you feel most comfortable in. A second opinion can be used as a guide but ultimately what you feel great in is the really the only option.
Do: DRESS ACCORDING TO YOUR BODY
Emphasize your top features instead of hiding them. But keep things classy as the last thing you want to do is be the talk of this year’s Durban July for the wrong reasons. Looking and feeling great does not come from false ideas of beauty. Plus size ladies opt for the A line skirt instead of killing yourself in spanks for the entire day.
