South Africa’s premiere horse racing event, the Vodacom Durban July, is literally just around the corner and one of the worst things that could happen to an attendee at this very moment is being in a style rut. If this is you right now; stuck and confused on what to wear to one of the biggest events in South Africa then be rest assured that we have your back with all the style inspiration you need to either provide you with an outfit that you can recreate to the Vodacom Durban July or help get the fashion juices flowing.

Scroll down to see the four looks we suggest you recreate if you will be attendance at the Vodacom Durban July.


Make like Nicole Chikwe and don on a dress that somehow is  both statement making and simple. With a simple purse and her hair pulled back, Nicole furthers the dress looking laidback – which is perfect for an outdoor event – but the dress packs enough punch for it make all the fashion statement the wearer would want to make.


It’s summer, don’t be shy of wearing colors. Take a page from Elizabeth Oputa’s style book and center colors in a summer appropriate outfit and watch your outfit take centerstage at the event.


This look borders on maximalist but the color palette and the resulting silhouette are altogether utterly bomb and we highly suggest recreating this look for the Vodacom Durban July event.

It’s an outdoor summer event which means a great deal of sun, your best bet when it comes to looking stylish and practical might be a floral sleeveless dress, sunshades and a straw hat.
