Having beautiful skin is simple with OPTIPHI®, all you need is the latest fashion to match. Here is OPTIPHI®‘s summer fashion guide to help you look as cutting-edge as your perfect complexion:


  1. Top summer colours

Pistachio green, very similar to mint, is all the rage this summer and so is yellow.  Any shade of yellow as long as it matches your complexion – be bold, there is a shade of yellow for everyone. For a subtler option, choose an all-white ensemble, black & white mix of interesting shapes or small checks. And last but not least, army green.


  1. Must-have styles

This season is all about shirtdresses, culottes (yes, you might have to apologize to your mother for trying to make her throw hers out in the past and now appeal to her to open her wardrobe to you), the same goes for ‘roomey denim’. Lightweight trench coats that look like a kimonos and one-shoulder cuts are also favorites.


  1. Summer hair

Hair trends this summer include crimping, the slick-back wet-look, middle partings and simpler hairstyles with minimal styling needed.


  1. Glitter roots

Grab your hair gel, some sparkly bits and bedazzle your roots. Not only does it add a unique touch for a night out, it also hides re-growth.


  1. Makeup

Smokey eyes, heavier, darker lids and eyeliner wings paired with nude lips. Add some subtle pastel eye shadow for a little extra colour.


  1. Sunnies

This summer it’s all about tricky geometric frames and large squoval lenses. Take a look at Dolce & Gabbana’s Mama Brocade limited edition sunglasses. The price tag can be hefty but they are worth a look.


  1. Flat out shoes

Girls the world over are pleased as punch that comfortable summer shoes are the order of the day – flat sandals, slip-ons and sneakers are all the rage.


  1. Nail glamour

Essie has summer covered with their range of awesome summer colours, including pistachio green.


  1. Handbag overhauling

The bucket bag and tote aren’t going anywhere and neither is the clutch, even for daytime.  Florals adorn bags of all shapes and sizes. New ways of holding bags from wristlets to hang straps, the possibilities are endless. And since this summer incorporates 70s style, the saddle bag is making a big comeback with new embellishments.


  1. Fashion must-haves

This summer brings with it cutting-edge colour, encourages you to wear the same items in a variety of different settings (change things up – take it from the beach to the office just by changing shoes and accessories) and gives firm favorites a new look. It’s all about wearing the latest fashion without compromising on comfort. Wear underwear that classes with your outfit.

Wondering what to give your friends and family this holiday season? Look no further than OPTIPHI®‘s gift guide. While we at OPTIPHI® believe that the ultimate gift this year should be our new Body Lotion in a tantalizing Evergreen fragrance, here are some more ideas:


  1. For the budding Master Chef

Cooking is fast becoming a very popular hobby, it is a great opportunity to express creativity, experiment and at the same time a means to take charge of healthy eating as opposed to restrictive dieting. From simple daily cooking to lavish meals prepared for friends, cooking is very much part of our lives. YuppieChef.com has a wide range of Christmas gifts for the special cook in your life, from books to gadgets to decor – there are even voucher options. Our 2015 seasonal cookbook will be TWO, written by Seline and Leandri van der Wat – available at Exclusive Books Nationwide.


  1. Kindle, the gift that keeps on giving

E-readers like the Kindle are designed to be gentle on your eyes and offer hours of entertainment. While many people will argue that holding a book in your hands just doesn’t compare, and that is very true, just imagine being able to read almost any book you want without having to wade through the masses to make it into book store. That is the convenience of an e-reader!


  1. A new take on vouchers

Whether you are a lover or hater of vouchers, the variety of vouchers on offer is changing the way that people see them. Good old fashioned store vouchers are just one way to treat someone special. You can also buy iTunes or Google Play vouchers so that users can splurge on apps, music and movies of their choice. Then there are charity vouchers which are perfect for someone who has everything. Look for a cause that is close to their heart and make a donation on their behalf or buy a voucher directly from the charity.


  1. A gift that grows and grows

For the ladies, how about choosing sentimental gift that you can add to with each occasion. Like a Thomas Sabo Charm Bracelet that you can add charms to as memories are made. Choose charms to add to special occasions, token people dear to you and mark milestones.


  1. Heaven Scent

Knowing that you smell divine just feels good. Wondering which scent is the one to get these holidays? Visit My Perfume Shop to find your favorite fragrances at discounted prices.
