Most people cannot wait for the moment when they are finally able to pack away their dull winter clothing and replace it with their lighter and more colourful summer wardrobe.

Here at fbo, we have been busy preparing for the coming season and we are very excited about the new, hot trends that are coming your way!

We are fast becoming South Africa’s favourite brand outlet for finding beautiful brand name clothing and, whether you choose to shop on our easy-to-use online outlet or you prefer one of our convenient brand outlets in Johannesburg or Pretoria, you can always be assured that we have all the latest trends and the best brands to choose from.

Spring promises to be very exciting in terms of fashion. A key colour for this season will be green, in all its fresh and pretty shades. The good news about this is that green is very versatile, and you can build this into your wardrobe with a beautiful sage green blouse, a green dress or accessorise with a bright green handbag.


In addition to green, we are set to see a lot of pastel colours and monochrome looks this Spring. This means that there will be plenty of dresses and skirts in pretty pastel shades and outfits in one bold colour.


Skirts will be making a comeback, and this is a very welcome change as previous seasons have seen a multitude of skinny jeans and trousers.

Most of the fashion you will see in all our brand outlets will be accessorised with feathers and dainty sequins, giving a whimsical and girly look to some of the garments.

Another trend is the wearing of wardrobe staples. Many timeless and classic pieces have been worn on the catwalks such as your blue Oxford shirts, classic black tailored pants, body suits and of course, the little black dress.  Although this is a very simple, tried and trusted trend, you could always accessorise your look with an oversized handbag, some statement earrings or a pretty necklace to compliment the colour of your shirt.

Floral print dresses will also be big this Spring and this is your chance to channel your inner girlishness and go all out with a floral dress that suits you.


Here at fbo, we have an extensive range of floral print dresses in a variety of fabrics, such as silk, chiffon and cotton. We also have plenty of mini, midi and maxi length dresses so there is something to suit everyone!

Team your floral print dress with a pair of strappy sandals and an oversized hat and you are ready for anything this season.

Finally, puffed sleeves are something to look out for. Blouses and dresses with puffed up sleeves in the shoulder and arm area are very hot right now. If you aren’t comfortable with this trend, you may want to opt for a blouse that has subtle puffiness in the sleeve area as these also look amazing when on.
