XO is small online accessories brand based in Durban, South Africa who aims to source and create effortless and unique adornment for those with a discerning eye. Combining their backgrounds in interior design, photography, marketing and fashion merchandising, XO was created by a sassy mother-daughter trio - Karin, Maxine and Natalie Elphick.
XO designs and locally produces all their leather goods and clothing and imports other elevated essentials that are sure to become treasured and admired pieces of your wardrobe. Each product is created in small, limited collections to ensure exclusivity and a focus on slower, more thoughtful fashion.
WHY WE LOVE THEM
Nats and Max follow trends but have a way of adding their own unique edge to their collection. I often find amazing pieces that transition beautifully from day to night. By rocking flats or sneakers I can feel perfectly styled for a lunch date or day full of meetings, then easily amp up the glam for an occasion or event by adding heels or boots and accessories.
They have also started to place a lot more emphasis on a slower fashion business model with focus on sustainability and the need to inspire a love affair with the clothes you own. This stylish trio is thinking further than design with fabric selection. production and wear being high priority when it comes to their newer collections.
A force to be reckoned with! I am so enjoying their journey as I watch this Girl Boss brand go from strength to strength.
FAVOURITE FINDS FROM THEIR LATEST COLLECTION
HONEY WRAP TOP
ON MY WISHLIST
With the Honey skirt being such a firm favourite, the XO sisters couldn't resist making its other half!
I already own the Temptress Wrap Skirt in honey so I am super tempted to purchase its partner in crime.
The only thing holding me back is the Bra factor.
Needing to wear a bra all the time is not only the bane of my existence, but in this case, it means the back to front option is out.
I did try to make this style work with the lilac bad girl wrap but it didn't happen for me.
Despite it's super flirty butterfly sleeves, and flattering wrap style that can be worn a number of ways to compliment your style and vibe...I would consider my concerns above if you aren't able to go braless.
If you are,
firstly, I'm jealous!
Secondly, here are your styling options:
regular front wrap over, for full coverage
back-to-front, for a high neck look (tied in a back bow)
front twist + tied to the back, for a low cut look

Plain and simple, yet sultry and charming...the Cleo is an instant outfit booster.

Had the best experience with XO. I found them on the Epiphany directory. They were professional and so efficient! I bought the gold animal jacquard maxi dress, black bucket bag and zodiac necklace. All so beautiful!!! And the packaging is so cute. The dress fits perfectly and the leather bag quality is perfection! Can’t wait to make my next purchase and fully trust that the brands Epiphany endorses are quality brands <3
