No matter how many times you go to buy clothes and accessories, you may never actually have enough. There are times you just get home hands filled with shopping bags and it occurs to you that you may have left out something. Accelerate is here to bail you out. The next time you go to the mall, only start grabbing whatever you like after you’ve made sure all these items are in your wardrobe:

hoodie and sweatpants


Hoodie and sweatpants: This is left for those days when you don’t feel like doing anything. You don’t always have to look like you are on your way to the red carpet- some days have to just be chill. The day you have to get some snacks at the mall and don’t want to force your body into skinny jeans, then you will be happy that those sweatpants and hoodie was purchased.


baseball cap

Baseball hats: Hats are wonderfully useful. They protect your eyes from the sun. They’re a godsend whenever you’re having a bad hair day. And whenever you need a quick change up to your usual style, hats are there to save the day.


a black dress

A black dress: This always comes in handy when you have a last minute engagement and are confused on what to wear. It is just the emergency dress for a formal event or a date. This doesn’t have to be ‘little’, it could be little enough for a night out but decent enough for some formal event. Basically, one that’s firmly on middle ground.


fresh shades

Sunglasses: This is an obvious  one. We are in Africa, we have cloudy moments, but one thing we don’t lack is the sun. As well as the extra stylish chic sunglasses automatically add to any outfit, they’re a protective measure for your eyes. Everyone needs to have at least one pair of sunglasses in their possession.
