Cleo Marcopoulos, COSMO Fashion Editor

From R1 033, Quiz at Takealot

Why Cleo loves it: ‘One sure way to look hot to trot when the weather’s not? A red coat! I absolutely adore this tie-belt red coat. It’s the perfect winter item to make your outfit pop. Infuse new life into your off-duty denim look or go all out and top your bright-red coat with a cobalt-blue skirt.’

From R79, Lily & Rose at Takealot

Why Cleo loves it: ‘Don’t underestimate the power of a belt. This gold-buckle belt is perfect for belting over an oversized coat, a mini coat or blazer, or even over your half-way-open coat. It’s a cool and easy way to accessorise and will totally help you slay your #OOTD.’

From R884, Quiz at Takealot

Why Cleo loves it: ‘After years of skinny jeans taking over everything, we’re happy to announce that frill-hemmed jeans have reached staple status in any fashion girl’s closet. And if it’s got Gigi Hadid’s stamp of approval, you know we’re here for it! Team these fierce fray-hemmed jeans with a pair of lace-up heels or ankle boots.’

Aphiwe Khambule, COSMO Beauty Editor

OPI Nail Envy Original Nail Strengthener, from R379 at Takealot

Why Aphiwe loves it: ‘This OPI nail strengthener is a lifesaver! It works to strengthen nails with wheat protein and calcium, and provides my nails with a treatment for these cold winter months.’ 


Marc Jacobs Daisy, from R1 899 for 100ml EDT at Takealot

Why Aphiwe loves it: ‘This is one of my favourite scents! I love how summery and fresh it smells – it’s like a vacation in a bottle. The notes of violet leaves, ruby-red grapefruit, gardenia, musk and vanilla create a soft, floral aroma.’ 

Cantu Shea Butter Tea Tree & Jojoba Hair & Scalp Oil, from R139 at Takealot

Why Aphiwe loves it: ‘This hair oil moisturises and nourishes my scalp, and leaves my hair feeling silky and soft.’


Koketso Masuluke, COSMO Digital Editor

The Land Is Ours by Tembeka Ngcukaitobi, from R280 at Takealot

Why Koketso loves it: ‘In a bid to reading more books authored by Africans, I found The Land Is Ours. This book is a story about South Africa’s first black lawyers, in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It’s an amazing read and is available as an e-book or paperback!’

Polaroid Bluetooth Headphones, from R399 at Takealot

Why Koketso loves it: ‘I love that these headphones are wireless. They’re perfect for the office and I don’t need to worry about wires wearing and tearing. It also has a built-in microphone for hands-free calling and has a playtime of about six hours! Amazing.’

Crosshatch Holster Quilted Backpack, from R299 at Takealot

Why Koketso loves it: ‘I’m constantly on the go and my laptop and gadgets go wherever I go. So I’m always on the hunt for a comfy backpack to carry all my goodies. This denim baby has a padded inner laptop pouch which is perfect for protecting my laptop, plus it’s super-stylish!’
