According to our sources in Cape Town and Durban, South Africa's trendy chicks are keen on mid-calf leggings topped with flowing, knee-length cotton dresses. South African fashion blogs show us how the locals rock this trend. Below, purple leggings are paired with a light cotton dress, and gray gladiator sandals. And pictured to the right, a brown sixties shift is made modern with leggings but kept authentic with the Alice band and brass earrings.
You can get the South African look easily: throw on a gorgeous flowing dress like this one from Sue Wong ($330) or this appropriately named Capetown frock by Tibi ($355) and then pull on a pair of mid-calf leggings to complete the look.
