Trends come and go, however, you never can beat classic fashion, and it’s arguably even more important to build a wardrobe that you’ll love for years, if not decades.
classic fashion is a style that lasts for several seasons, sometimes even
years, and is accepted by a wide range of people. For example, a double-breasted
blazer is one of the classic fashion items that repeat themselves year after

variety of bright colours.

This year, the snakeskin trend will continue to slither into your closet, like this pleated snakeskin dress from Havva Closet, that is a definite must-have in your closet.

“I grew up with a fascination for fashion design since the early primary. I would draw ball gowns in all my schoolbooks. Post matric, I made a calculated decision to study Metallurgical engineering and worked as a Mining professional for 13 years. Whilst still working in a 9-5 job in 2014, I was inspired to open an online boutique in partnership with my sister under the name Havva (Arabic name for Eve).

Our brand is positioned to give a voice to women who want to match their style with a bold attitude towards work and life, a brand that partners with you to “go for it all. I’m looking to build a team in the next few years and ultimately, we see ourselves designing and manufacturing collections in-house, once we are confident that we can offer the best quality which will compete with international fashion brands,” says Paula.
A handbag can be the only street style bait you need, so
long as you’re carrying the right style. There are so many ways to welcome the Spring/Summer
season: a candy coloured croc, a teardrop-shaped crossbody, or many a modern
twist on the lady bag.
Somehow the world’s teeniest, tiniest mini totes have proven
to be a big smash in 2019. These days, rather than one overarching silhouette
or finish leading the charge for all bags everywhere, you’ll find that each
fashion brand has the style that most suits their unique aesthetic.
So, forget the notion that only bags can be stylish when
shoulder bags are out or that bucket drawstring totes are the only thing to be
seen carrying. There’s a stylish bag out there for everyone.
If you like your investments to be loud, flashy and noticeable, but reasonably priced, it’s likely you’ll be drawn to Dress-Smart’s bag collection. Find some of the best women shoulder bags from Dress-Smart.

Dress-Smart is an online accessories store owned by Oyama Dangazele. They provide elegant and good quality women and men’s purses, bags, and wallets.
“What inspired me to start Dress-Smart is the fact that I grew up in a small village in the Eastern Cape, where all these glamourous items were only seen on TV. We had limited access to just about anything. I want to make a name for myself. My wish is to create a platform where anyone, anywhere in Africa could have access to my collection. I want to also inspire the younger generation to know that no matter where you are from, you can still follow your dreams,” says Oyama.
“We are all about collaboration, hence we look forward to crafting our own designs, in partnership with local designers soon. We also hope to open physical stores and introduce a new range wardrobe for both males and females. Our products will be locally produced, ensuring that our local suppliers are supported. I see this company as a fast-growing company. After launching in February 2019, we’ve already expanded our business to the Eastern Cape market,” she says.
