TIPS AND TRICKS  |  SEP 10, 2021


Seasons change, and so do trends, but one thing stays the same – you can always shop essentials and more at Capegate Shopping Centre. The new season is here, and you might be looking to chop and change your wardrobe to welcome the warm spring and summer days. Guess what? We have a list of stores to give you the right gear and some tips on how to build your summer wardrobe. 

First Things First: Sets

Sets have evolved over time. And what used to be classified as simple loungewear has turned into a fashion trend amidst the new normal. Work From Home fashion is in, and more and more people are finding exciting ways to mix and match some of their favourite home-comfy wear for every kind of indoor meeting or event. Invest in a couple of loungewear sets if you haven’t already, and if you have, then it’s time to pick up some new summer treasures. You can get a range of different sets, shorts, tops and more to complement the warm days indoors effortlessly at Pick n Pay Clothing and Cotton On in Capegate Shopping Centre

Whether you like the tight and hugging kind of comfy wear or the free-flowing and loose kind of fits, there is something for you. There are also different sizes for everyone to choose from, and the colour ranges are amazing. Stock up on some new comfy gear and make lockdown fashion great again.

Summer Dresses and Shorts Await

When it comes to the latest fashion clothes for ladies, you can trust Capegate Shopping Centre’s Legit and Foschini. There are lots of beautiful floral dresses that compliment any kind of gathering, as well as something for when you have to go enjoy the summer sunsets or nights. Come to Legit and Foschini to also witness some collaborative fashion projects with local and international designers that offer brand new and trendy designs for women to enjoy. 

There is also a wide selection of shoes and accessories, perfumes and makeup, plus there are gift cards for you to spoil your loved ones if you feel like the pressure of choosing the gift is too much. Pro-tips when it comes to picking summer dresses: 

  • If you want something casual and carefree, go for skater dresses and shirt dresses. They offer free flow and picture-ready beauty.
  • If you like something poised and fashionable, maxi and floral dresses are for you. You will feel like a queen taking a walk on the castle’s lawn.
  • Wrap dresses and slit dresses are lovely for when you want to go out to a brunch or a tasting event. Easy to wear with just one or two knots and no complications.

There are more options for you. Always go for something you are most comfortable with, and we will have you looking like a model daily.

For The Smart And Smart-Casual

If you enjoy a little bit of formal and chic wear, as well as some smart-casual looks, then Capegate Shopping Centre’s Contempo has got everything you could ever want and need. Here you can shop some classic and chic pieces curated to give anyone who wears them the right amount of confidence, comfort and class for every event. The Fix in Capegate Shopping Centre also offers lovely selections of smart-casual clothes for the Work From Home people who want to suit up every now and then but also want to keep it cool and casual. 

We’ve Got Something For The Guys Too

If you’re looking for stylish clothes for men, then you are at the right place. Capegate Shopping Centre has lots of stores to choose from. Spoil yourself or the guy in your life to some picks from Refinery. They’ve got everything from striped and floral shirts to the simple yet stylish solid colours. There’s also a lot of cargo shorts and linen pants to choose from that will compliment any summer day or night. 

A great tip when shopping for guys for summer is to avoid mixing and matching. Pairing a solid colour with prints, stripes, or flowers may give you an effortless yet well-curated look when you have to attend a gathering of some sort. Accessorising for guys is also fun as you can get a range of watches, necklaces and wrist bracelets to complete any look.

Now It’s Time To Enjoy The Warm Days

Don’t forget that though these summer essentials are important, you also need to stay safe and healthy during the warm season. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen regularly and stay hydrated in the spring and summer seasons. Enjoy your shopping experience at our local shopping centre in Brackenfell, and remember to continue to practice social distancing protocol whenever in public spaces. We can’t wait to give you your new summer wardrobe and specials.
