    The most anticipated season is finally here. Summer marks the most traveled time of the year and everyone has marked their calendars to their next destination. The summer always inspires adventures and seeks new discoveries… Colors burst into the light, warmth softens the mood, and lazy days turn into carefree nights. There’s just something about the summer that is undeniably satisfying. Just as amply comparable is the clothing of choice during the heated months as well. Clothes get lighter, shorter, brighter, and flashier as the smoldering days fade away. This makes all the better for fashionable travelling. You can pack a lot more than shoes if you choose to think cleverly, practically, and consciously.

    Check out these incredible looks that inspire you to travel… at your best.

    Promenade in style during your expeditions. Who said your basics can’t be filled with excitement? MaXhosa by Laduma’s lightweight monochrome knit is the perfect choice for ingenuity. Painted with Xhosa-inspired print, the short sleeve golf shirt this traveller adorns is one to consider. Abroad in Africa, temperatures rise but light piping and a partial zip collar keeps this style cool and practical.

    Bring your hipster vibe abroad with you in this boyish-hipster by the bay look. Fitted to style is the MaXhosa by Laduma lightweight golf shirt. With a spread polo collar and Xhosa-inspired print, this short sleeve staple is a must-pack item to accompany you wherever you go. Pair with a slim casual pant and show off just how stylish you really are with a matching pair of MaXhosa socks. Roll-up and roll out in ENZI’s Nkrumah Shoes, made in Ethiopia the soft leather kicks will keep your feet comfy in endless style. Get clever when you pack it all in the Sandstorm weekender, touched with your signature panache of style.

    Pack your favorite distressed jeans and a pair of ENZI’s Nkrumah Shoes to mix and match throughout your trip, as classic mid-cut leather sneakers are always applicable to any day look or evening setting. Pack it all in a roomy bag like this Sandstorm weekender made in Kenya that encapsulates a conscious fashion-forward zest while making your excursion convenient and light.
