Light Packing For The Durban July Weekend

So Durban July is upon us once again and the thing with it that can be so strenuous is one, PACKING, a gentleman’s worst nightmare. Packing light so that everything will fit into a carry-on beach bag is a skill not everybody can get the hang of because people tend to over pack. But travelling light is a no-brainer. Yes, it can be done, especially when it’s a beach trip and especially being a man – it spares you from the pressure that makes most women bring their entire wardrobe.

Here’s how you can pack lightly without breaking a sweat…

First, consider the weight and size of the bag itself. Leave behind bag with wheels because they weigh extra pounds more. Just opt for the light one which has enough pockets and compartments to help keep you organized.

You need not pack that much. Determine what and how much stuff you really need to take with you to the beach. Think about what you’ll be doing and needing on your trip day by day. A helpful way is to make a list of the things you would like to bring. Ask yourself if you really will use each item.  As you write what you really need, you will realize what you don’t need. Then try to strip away those that are not necessary. This ensures that nothing essential is overlooked and nothing unnecessary is packed.


A beach trip needs far less clothes than what is in your list.  It’s all about choosing the right clothing pieces to fit the needs of your trip. Choose the right clothes that correspond to the weather. Pack enough clothing to stay cool. The lighter clothing you have, the better. Of course, get rid of the pants and just wear shorts and take more short-sleeve or sleeveless tops. Avoid clothing that weighs more and choose the quick-drying one.

For footwear, leave those bulky shoes at home and bring slippers or sandals. Waterproof, plastic or rubber ones are best. They are lighter and less bulky.

Also, don’t forget to pack other essentials needed for your beach vacation. When heading out into the sunshine, give your skin extra protection by using sunscreen; and sunglasses and hats to protect your face from harmful rays. You can’t afford to leave these items

Men’s Winter Trends

Winter is upon us yet again and boy oh boy do we have some global cooling ahead of us, but you needn’t worry at all cos we have some very sophisticated looks to steam up your wardrobe whether it’s work, play or out on the town with that gorgeous lady (or guy, for others) you will look stylish and suave.I believe this winter we need to break the boundaries of fashion and style, the focal point here is LAYERING, yes, wearing more than just a shirt and blazer.

Layering to me is when you wear two different shirts, preferably a cotton shirt with a jean shirt unbuttoned at the neck, collars popped on to the other (preferably your desired shirt inside and the denim on top) then a cardigan, above it all pair them with a gorgeous earthy colour blazer…..and a trench coat. You can pair this look with a pair of blue denims, a thin woven belt and colorful shoes that you fancy.

Don’t be afraid to fuse your look with men-bags, preferably floral to loosen up the formality of your look OR you can make a bold statement with leather, plush (suede) and other materials.
