Fashion In South Africa Should Cover The Whole Body: Opinion
Despite South Africas has long history with fashion, they should take a look at other cultures like Arab and Islam especially I know now the question is why Arab and Islamic rather than anything else? Now, you can read many reasons show to all the ideas.
First, we all admire the beauty of our dresses and styles, but why do these closes not cover the whole body? I think if we try to make the clothes loose and tall with sleeves. This will be more beautiful than our styles today. Look at the following pictures and think if we made like this from our Xhosa or shweshwe style. I think it will be a great design and also from our culture because we will do these styles like what we wear.
After seeing these styles. What do you think? If you wear clothes like that how do you look!
Also, what are the benefits of wearing clothes covering the whole body?
It’s clear the first benefit is you protect your body from sunlight, dust, germs, microbes, scratches and any harmful things.
Another positive thing: it’s not necessary to shave your body each time you go out because no one sees anything of your body.
And if you cover your hair also you no longer get a haircut or wear a wig.
Finally, I see to cover your body and hair will save your body and time also you look stunning.
some of you say how I look stunning by covering my whole body.
The answer is simply any human wants to know what is behind anything covered.it’s human nature. So, If you cover your whole body you become like a precious thing that is put in a box every one sees you but no one knows your body details.
