Spring has finally sprung and our love affair with stripes shows no sign of fading. Why? They’ll deliver instant impact and, in this season’s on-trend rainbow-bright hues, they’ll have the compliments rolling in. Worried that stripes will make you look a bit bigger? Don’t – horizontal stripes can be flattering, especially if there’s a dark hue. Or choose vertical, or subtle pinstripes that will make you look taller. Simple shapes form the basis of this look so play with different silhouettes, from fitted to flowing. Convinced? Then check out the international ranges on Bay-One; see bay.one.

IF YOU ONLY BUY 1 THING…
Spring can be a tricky time for choosing the right footwear – it’s not cold enough for boots, but not quite warm enough for sandals either. Enter Havaiana’s Soul Collection. Add a pair of these shoes to your new-season wardrobe for those days when the weather could go either way. And at under R400, they’re a bargain too! Espadrilles, R399, Havaianas.
