Fashion Advice: Durban July 2012

Last week’s Dress according to the occasion post was a mini introduction for today’s fashion advice.
It’s that time of the year, where ladies and gents are preparing for Durban July Handicap 2012. Like every other year there’s a theme and this year’s theme is A MATERIAL WORLD. Clearly this theme was inspired by the COP17 conference held last year in Durban. If you are planning to go and still trying to figure out how to stick to the theme….well you are in the right place. Two things come to my mind with this year’s them. Eco Friendly and Red carpet.
Eco friendly: think green, think earthy colors, think recycling fabric/material, think organic fabric, think nature, flowers.
Red carpet: this is quite diverse. The point is to look like "a material girl". Look like the star that you are. The options here are endless. From current lace gowns/dresses, classic silhouettes, refined, glam and elegant.
Of course an outfit is never complete without hair accessories ladies! Yes bring out those hair fascinators, hats, flowers etc. Whatever you choose to wear look trendy, chic, be comfortable (very important) and have funs creating your looks!
This is a red carpet look I was talking about
