What’s hot and what’s not?

30 November 2018
Each week, the Windhoek Observer’s entertainment crew takes an insightful, yet amusing look at the performance and arts industry, lifestyle and fashion happenings in Windhoek and across the world, and judges whether they are hot or not.
We fan glitz outfits

Taking a look worldwide for our hot and not this week, check out Cressida Bonas and how she looks gorgeous in a gold and orange evening gown at the recently held 2018 Evening Standard Theatre Awards in London. We do really admire the design of this dress. It is so amazing to see how it grabs her right at the top and them widens at the bottom.  Take note Namibian designers:  a dress of this fashion, could be adapted with our richer materials and colour combinations to make some of us look great on the red carpet too!
We love soft fabric and blue dresses
Our own Frieda Karipi, have a way to make us smile and go, “Wow, we like that!” to her fashion statements. African prints still got us screaming “Hell-yes!” Blue is surely one of those colours that one can never get enough of. It will certainly not die out anytime soon. You look great! 
 We hate sloppy designers
Dear…we are not too sure what fashion statement you were trying to make here. Yes, I know that those wishing to be edgy are into the pulled back (off the shoulder or revealing the belly), buttoned top-trend these days, but what you did here, made you look uncool.   To be honest, we laughed when we saw you.  We do love edgy, but we also like to see outfits that make sense, are ‘wear-able’ and at least look comfortable.  Yours looks contrived; more like a stage costume chosen for effect.   Instead, wear outfits that say who you really are, not who you would like others to think you are.   Goodness, those pants are impractical and too long.  Keep it real.  You are young and pretty – let that shine out.  Reach inside yourself for what makes you comfortable, what makes you happy and what shows up your many physical attributes the best.  Everything you wear should reflect that.
