Summer is just around the corner, which means that party season and beach day season are upon us. 

If you want to look your best this summer, look no further than South African actress Linda Mtoba.

She is considered one of the most fashionable women in Mzansi and with good reason. Linda won the 'Most Stylish Performing Artist in Film or TV' award at the SA Style Awards in 2018

Her 'Bump Fit of the Day' outfits stole the show during her pregnancy in 2019.

Linda, who welcomed her daughter 'Bean' that year, would regularly share pictures of her maternity style on Instagram. 

Who better to look to for summer fashion inspiration than her? Here's a look at eight of her outfits you can copy this summer. 

#1 It's giving... summer dress goals

This off-the-shoulder cream-coloured dress is perfect for those summer days when the sun is shining but it is a tad bit chilly outside. Linda completed the outfit with a pair of gold lace up sandals. 

"Giving all kinds of graciousness and beauty," one of her followers gushed. 

#2 On Wednesdays we wear pink

You can't go wrong this summer with a pink denim skirt and white vest. Linda's white sunglasses added a touch of chic to this playful, casual look.

#3 Silk shorts? Say no more!

Linda's silk shorts are perfect for a night out on the town. You can dress them up or down, but one thing they will do is keep you cool as a cucumber this summer. 

#4 Barbie after sunset

We're not going to say that pink is Linda's favourite colour, but it sure does look good on her. The former 'Isibaya' star looks like she is ready to dance the day away at a summer beach party.

#5 I'm that girl

Linda's all-black outfit screams Beyoncé from head to toe. "Très belle," one fan commented. 

In the words of Queen B, Linda is THAT girl. 

#6 Boring colours for what? 

This light and airy spaghetti strap dress is all kinds of amazing. The bright green colour is also perfect for summer. One thing is for sure; Linda's outfit colour choices are not boring. 

#7 Summer nights 

There is only one word to describe this white strapless dress - fabulous! It's perfect for a summer date night, a work party, or a night out on the town with your girls. 

Swipe to see this white dress in all its glory. 


#8 Linda Mtoba's favourite things

We're rounding off this summer fashion list with three of Linda's favourite things - the colour pink, shorts, and hoop earrings. Sadly, the outfit does not come with the summer body!
