Stylist-Approved Utility-Inspired Looks We're Obsessing Over From R299

*Adds to cart*

The struggle is real, fam. We have all spent way too much time on IGTV, drooling over style hauls, wanting to add everything to our cart so that we can look like the Kardashians on their Italian vacay. Instead, we are over here eating dry cereal and waiting for payday.

Don’t stress – our COSMO style team has dissected all the most luxurious looks from Foschini’s spring summer ’19 range, and we’ve found utility-inspired (trending hard this season) pieces that are both chic and affordable – with prices starting at R299! Watch our Fashion Editor, Clare, rock her five fave utility looks that can all be styled interchangeably for maximum wardrobe opps.
