Liven up your summer vibe with a new men’s wardrobe
For many, summer is the best time of year. The sun comes out after a long hiatus, drawing many out into the streets to show off their summer style and soak up some rays. But, if your summer wardrobe leaves much to be desired, you might not be able to enjoy the season to its fullest.
If you’re looking to update your summer wardrobe and step out in style for all those beach parties, cocktail evenings and hiking dates, look no further! We’ve rounded up the best fashion stores in Cape Town to help you spruce up your style for more than just a while.
Take a look at these retail stores, and breathe life into your wardrobe in time for the height of summer.
Spec-tacular shades at Sunglass Hut
Your first point of call when the sun shows its face should be to find a stellar pair of sunglasses. Your goal should be to protect your eyes, of course, but also take your style statement into consideration. Nothing ruins a fantastic outfit quicker than a pair of sunglasses from the last century, or worse, a pair that doesn’t suit your face.
In fear of boring you with an extensive guide to face shapes and matching sunglasses, remember the rule of thumb. Faces with softer edges, like round, oblong or oval faces, tend to look better with more angular frames. And, inversely, sharper faces like square, diamond or rectangular ones can rock rounder specs like nobody’s business.
Whatever your face shape and personal style, the Sunglass Hut at Canal Walk is one of the best sunglasses stores in Cape Town. Pop by and pick your favourites from brands like Prada, Bvlgari, Ray-Ban and Oakley.
Dress like you’re Forever 21
While sunglasses are the cherry on top, you still need a trendy outfit to step out in style this summer. And if trends are what you’re looking for, Forever 21 is the way to go. This international brand quickly became one of the most sought after clothing shops in Cape Town, and with good reason!
Next time you visit Canal Walk, stop by Forever 21 and take your time crafting looks that are cool enough for any summer event.

You’re guaranteed to find a pair of shoes, be it trainers, sneakers, loafers or oxfords, whenever you visit this popular shoe store in Cape Town.
When hunting for the perfect pair of summer shoes, take a few things into consideration. Context, comfort and quality will always guide you in the right direction. Where and when are you planning on wearing them? You want to make sure they fit their purpose, lest you end up wearing boots to the beach. How long should you be comfortable wearing them? You don’t want to be stuck at work with an uncomfortable pair better suited for a special occasion. And, most importantly, are they made to last? If you’re going to fork out your hard-earned money for a pair of shoes, they’d better be able to last a while.
Where there’s a Twill, there’s a way to stand out
Not everyone can or wants to pull off loud, vibrant outfits on the daily. But that doesn’t mean you don’t want to add a pop of colour and quirk to your look every now and then. For those days, you’ll be grateful you picked up a pair of Sexy Socks from Twill in Canal Walk.There’s no better way to add some flair to an otherwise classic outfit than with a funky pair of socks. And, if that’s not reason enough, they’ll donate a pair of school socks to a child in need every time you buy a pair of your own.
