2013: Colour Blocking
2013 was a year in which colour blocking was the in thing . Pants with one colour coupled with a top with a totally different colour was the crowd favourite.
Celebs like Rihanna were an inspiration for this look .

2014: All white
White on white was the order of the day on the last months of the year 2014 . By the time Christmas came , a lot of people where wearing white on white clothing. White tops coupled with white pants and white shoes ,but more popular ,white sneakers .
2015: All black
The exact opposite trended the very next year ,black on black was very popular . ” All black everything ” trended ,with black on black clothing ,shoes and accessories.
After the popular Mafikizolo ft Jah Prayza video was released ,a lot of people started wearing camouflage clothes . Camouflage pants ,jackets , overalls ,caps you name it.
Now let me bring you to 2017, recently a lot of people have been raving about the “Red Rose” . Beginning of the year it all started with simple jeans embedded with Red roses details .
Sooner or later ,we are now noticing more and more clothing with the same kind of detail , there are sneakers with roses, heels ,chokers even tops and dresses .
This Christmas get stylish with Your red rose embellished jeans ,be it a bum short or long skinny jeans , either black or white.
Some people find the jeans a bit too cliché ,they want the roses but not in that particular manner . Well good news is you can wear red rose embellished tops , like the look down below , pair your jeans with simple red sneakers and a white top with a huge red rose detail .
It might actually be cold this Christmas since its raining ,so have a trendy warm back up plan with that sweater , also as you can see down bellow ,rock a denim jacket with those red roses you love or boots with the same particular detail .
Even if its hot ,well with our unpredictable weather , rock a see through top ,with black bottoms . Because of the growth of this trend ,you can rock similar shorts ,with the red rose detail .
And who said these”roses” only have to be on black tops and jeans ,you can rock them on denim dresses ,like this look down bellow . They can also be on white summer dresses paired with stylish sun hats . They are also on white cute crop tops which can easily be paired with jeans .
Let’s not forget ,”The new girl’s best friend ” ,chockers , get red roses chokers which come in all shapes and stylish sizes.
In conclusion Zimbabweans don’t necessarily follow the “traditional ” Christmas clothes ,we wear what trends .
