The weather’s behaving for a change and we’re feeling the need to breathe some fresh air into our wardrobes. Well, here’s the perfect way to keep it simple and summery – with a flattering Kitenge print dress that will take you from weekend casual to summer soiree stylish with just a change of accessories. Add a jumper and you’ve got yourself covered for the cooler weather.
This classic dress from Kenyan label Njema Helena is a must-have look, and comes in another gorgeous print which you must also check out. We’ve added a recycled aluminium cuff, also crafted in Kenya by Embody, and recycled silver earrings made in Niger by a Tuareg family enterprise. So how do you like it?
Our Stylist has picked this look for those days when nothing else will do but your Sunday best. Whether it’s for a posh afternoon tea or a wedding, we think this look, accentuating the beautifully-coloured, flattering maxi skirt from Kutowa, is elegant and confident. This versatile skirt looks just as fabulous with a black chiffon top for the evening as it does here with a demure cream number.
