McArthurGlen: Microtrends | Jumpsuits

When you can nail an outfit with one key piece, what’s not to love about the jumpsuit? From the runway to the streets, Fashion Month was awash with a style rainbow of all-in-ones. What’s more, the jumpsuit is a wardrobe classic that you can pull off day or night, and dress up or down.

Start writing your shopping list as we round up the best jumpsuit micro trends to be seen in now.

Colour Block
Unexpected colour combinations show off a bold and directional take. We love futuristic neon with raw denim, or acid tones next to fierce animal print. To style it up, pair your jumpsuit with a trending bumbag or bright statement heels.

Floral Print
It’s a given you’ll get style-mileage in florals. Team jumpsuits with feminine accents like the top-handle bag or classic pearls. Contrasting them with a menswear-inspired blazer balances the ensemble.

Whether it’s eye-catching white-on-white or head-to-toe beige, tonal looks win the versatility challenge – and look great on every skin tone. Elevate your look for the new season with a wide waist-belt or designer sunnies. Then, play with texture (think crisp cotton against smooth leather) to give minimal, light shades maximum stand out.

When function and aesthetics combine into a fresh trend, you know it’s going to take off. Keep things uniform with one of fashion’s best transitional themes. Case in point: pocket-laden boilersuits are having a moment right now; simply layer under a padded bomber jacket or a timeless parka coat to get the look.


South African Airways: Restriction on carriage of duty-free Liquids, Aerosols & Gels (LAGS) for passengers transiting/transfer to the United States of America

South African Airways: Restriction on carriage of duty-free Liquids, Aerosols & Gels (LAGS) for passengers transiting/transfer to the United States of America

South African Airways would like to advise its customers of the additional restrictions for passengers transiting on the way to the United States of America. The restrictions relate to carriage of Liquids, Aerosols and Gels (LAGS) purchased in duty-free areas of the airports by passengers in transit on flights originating from Johannesburg, Accra and Dakar.

“In terms of the United States’ Transportation Security Administration (TSA), there will be additional security requirements for flights to the United States of America (USA) and these will be in the form of restrictions to carry certain specified items in the cabin under specified circumstances. These restrictions are imposed on all passengers in transit/transfer to the USA and will apply to both SAA flights to the United States,” said SAA spokesperson, Tlali Tlali.   

SAA has two flights daily to Washington D.C and to New York. The flight to New York is a non-stop operation, whilst the flight to Washington D.C goes via Accra and Dakar (four and three times a week respectively).  

LAGS may not be transported in cabin baggage (accessible property) of any passengers connecting to the USA from Johannesburg, Accra, and Dakar. This requirement does however not affect duty-free purchased at the last point of departure (Johannesburg, Accra, and Dakar).

For SAA to comply with this restriction, SAA’s Security Gate Search Teams conducting current gate passenger screening will verify any duty-free items purchased at upstream airports and will deny the carriage of such items on the flight, regardless of whether such items are packed in security tamper evidence bags (STEB’s) or not.

Passengers are advised to factor this in when planning to transit/transfer through Johannesburg, Accra, and Dakar to avoid unnecessary discomfort and/or possible loss of their items. 

“SAA apologises for any inconvenience that could result from the restrictions imposed. We trust that our discerning passengers will appreciate that from time to time there will be changes introduced in the industry by the regulators or by agencies of jurisdictions to which SAA operates. These measures are aimed at improving security and safety of all across the value chain,” explained Tlali.

“The restrictions will apply to all flights to the United States only, with effect from 25 March 2019,” concluded Tlali.

The analysis performed by FlightStats reported that the Alitalia’s on-time performance was, in February, more than 12 percentage points higher than the average punctuality index of world airlines (77.6%).

The data related to the month of February confirm the Italian airline’s excellent on-time performance in January when Alitalia had ranked second most punctual airline in the world. A positive trend also registered during 2018 when the Italian airline, with 83.2 per cent of flights landed on schedule, had ranked second most punctual airline in Europe and eighth in the world.
