What To Wear To Cape Town

Cape Town has to be one of the most beautiful of cities in the world, and one of the cities that you could come back to again and again.

Whether you’re planning a activity-filled trip or are going for a relaxing break, there is something for all tastes.

Here are a few activities and some suggestions to help you pack the right clothing.

If you’re planning some day trips or even some excursions within the city, make sure you pack your favourite activewear so that you’re comfortable as you climb Table Mountain.

Whilst you are in Cape Town, you must brunch at least once.

And if brunch happens too early in the morning for you, the I suppose lunch will do.

You will be spoilt for choice for some great food, and there is something that can meet any budget.

If it’s a good day, find a place with a view and some sunshine.

There’s no better setting for a good meal.

If it is a hot day, you may want to try on a pair of  Furla SFU034 sunglasses to keep you looking stylish, as well as to protect you from the sun and awkward squinting.

A Night Out

Cape Town’s nightlife can be tailor made to your preferences.

There are some lovely clubs and bars that can keep you busy until the wee hours of the night.

Alternatively, there is an amazing culinary scene so you could spend your time, and money, treating yourself to some incredible food.

Or perhaps you are in the mood for both?

Choose your outfit based on comfort as well as climate, keeping it looking good but also not too formal.

A good pair of boots, pants and a crop top can do wonders, especially if accented with some elegant jewellery.

One of the most beautiful Cape Town experiences is watching a sunset.

The colours in the sky and reflected over the ocean is breathtaking.

You could go over to Clifton beach and enjoy a couple beers whilst watching the sunset.

It can get busy and that is part of the charm.

Bring a picnic blanket or towel if you don’t want to get all sandy after.

You’d want to be in something comfortable, so perhaps a beach dress and sandals.

Take a Dip

In Cape Town you will not be short of swimming options.

If you are a surfer, you can catch some waves, or if you prefer diving there is that option as well.

If you are keen on something a bit more relaxed there are some gorgeous pools and beaches where you can take a dip at a more relaxed pace.

Depending on your activity of choice, bring an appropriate swimsuit or wet suit.

Regardless of what you plan to do in Cape Town, make the most of it, drink plenty of wine, and enjoy the vibe.

And if you cannot fit everything in one trip, leave something for next time; you’ll want to come back.
