Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - LOVE LUST -

COM­BINE STA­PLES AND STATE­MENTS ‘ The per­fect wardrobe has a mix of clas­sic pieces and bold items. Keep an open mind when it comes to the state­ment pieces – if you go to the shop with an agenda, you could miss out on great and un­usual finds. That’s why I love head­ing to the Skip Fash­ion Ex­change, where you can swap un­wanted clothes for spec­tac­u­lar pieces you didn’t even know ex­isted.’

EDIT, EDIT, EDIT! ‘In­stead of hang­ing on to the gar­ments that never make it out of your closet, head over to your near­est Skip Fash­ion Ex­change, where you can swap them for some­one else’s pre-loved items. It’s a win for your wardrobe.’

CHOOSE QUAL­ITY OVER QUAN­TITY ‘It’s a bet­ter in­vest­ment to buy a few high- qual­ity pieces that last, than to buy loads of cheaper things that date or wear. Good care, such as wash­ing with Skip, can also give your clothes longevity, guard­ing against colour fad­ing. Yes, please!’

STICK TO YOUR STYLE PER­SON­AL­ITY ‘ There’s no rule book when it comes to style: it’s about what suits you, and about find­ing your own sense of fash­ion. Don’t like a trend? Don’t fol­low it! Choose pieces that make you feel con­fi­dent.’

WANT TO SWAP OUT OLD PIECES AND RE­JU­VE­NATE YOUR WARDROBE? Join Shashi and re­fresh your closet at the Skip Fash­ion Ex­change at Sand­ton City from 4 to 31 July 2017.
