Dressing for the occasion can be a bit tricky – you want to look relaxed and be comfortable without sacrificing your great style! What to wear? We’ve put together a few looks that you can easily throw on and look fabulous at any braai this weekend.
What to wear for a fun weekend with friends and family
Stay cool in a shirt dress
A shirt dress is easy to wear., lightweight and chic. The cool cotton fabric is perfect for an outdoor event. Pair with stylish slides and you’re good to go.

Matching sets for the win
Not keen on a one piece? Get a matching set instead and look fabulous! Add a bamboo or straw bag to compliment the neutral tones, and finish off your look with style.

Pretty polka dots
You can never go wrong with polka dots. They’re the one fashion trend that’s stuck around for decades. This pretty A-line dress nips in at the waist and flares out at the bottom, so you’ll feel comfortable and look fabulous. Go for an embellished small block heel – they offer extra support which means you’ll be able to stand in them all day!
Have fun in florals
If you’re looking for something with some colour, try this short sleeved floral jumpsuit. If the sun is too much, pick a fabulous straw hat to go, and you’re covered!

Easy cover ups
If the weather gets cooler in the evening, this simple cropped cardigan is perfect. Throw it over a strappy jumpsuit or dress for a layed back look.
