Mr Price SS/16 – The Next Wave Review


I have been a long-standing fan of Mr Price clothing – not only are their clothes extremely affordable, fair quality but they’re also on trend (up to date). I was beyond excited when we scored ourselves an exclusive invite to go to Cape Town for the day and preview their new Spring/Summer 2016 collections.

Mr Price sure did not disappoint because they have dropped some real bomb stuff.

The new SS/16 has various ranges to choose from.

The artsy range is for the girl who’s a little more daring and creative with her dress sense, as the “bare shoulders, ruffles, lace and embroidery take key items to the next level.” This range has many cool and funky bomber jackets, slip on dresses, mesh crop tops (of course everyone’s fav) and cheeky bodysuits. There are many pops of colour, a floral flair and an Oriental feel. I believe that even if you are not so out there with your dress sense, there is something for us all. My personal favourite pieces were the mesh bodycon dress, bodysuits and platform sneakers. I can’t get enough of this range.

The Oakridge SS/16 is the real winner this coming season. With many fun cute girly dresses that will have you the talk of the office or summer party, there is something for everyone. Many of the pieces have soft, chic silhouettes and hues. I really love the colours that are prominent in the Oakridge line – the whites, blush pink items, navy pieces, bright orange and floral detail. I am quite a fan of  the whole collection.

I am usually a big fan of the limited Project range. However to be very honest, the sports luxe look that Mr Price Project focuses on this time around, didn’t quite do it for me. On the other hand not all is doom and gloom for the Project line. Athleisure is making a strong come back this season, so there is definitely something for everyone. Yes even me. The new Project light up sneakers serve too much greatness for one’s sole. I can’t wait to get my pair. I think I may even get them in all the colours.

The Mr Price accessories game this SS/16 season knocked it out the park. “The Pop culture and novelty accessories continue to fuel the DIY trend.” The quirky clutchs, purses and phone covers served a whole lot Andy Warhol and Tumblr cool-kid feels.

It is very difficult to pick which items to buy. I can already smell the broke life once I have bought everything on my wishlist. Oh well, it is all worth it. I’m Keen to have a banging new wardrobe this Mr Price SS/16. And trust me you don’t want to miss out.


Remember, talk is cheap, fashion cost money but Style is a way of life. What’s your attitude?
