Trendy, cool and comfortable are three words that best describe Cape Town’s laid-back aesthetic. However, practicality also plays a big role. With the city’s unpredictable weather conditions and ‘four seasons in one day’, locals have learnt the art of versatile layering – dressing for the moment as well as what’s to come. This edgy, layered look is ideal to take anyone from a meeting to a night out on the town.
