Luxury Cape Town Shopping On Kloof Street
Spring is slowly getting the edge on winter, and we all know what that means. It’s time to pack away those winter woollies and replace them with the latest Cape Town luxury style for the warmer months.
If your wardrobe is a little last season, take a walk with the well-dressed down Kloof Street in Cape Town CBD, and stock up for the summer.
You’ll no doubt be needing some gym time (and clothes) to shake off the results of all those tempting winter specials that comforted you throughout the dark days of the last quarter. At least pounding the paving among the elite boutiques of this trend-setting district is a good start.
In Kloof Street you can pick up everything you need from soothing sounds to glittery gems to see you through the sultry days of December. Now’s the time to start fattening up those Christmas stockings so you can clear your calendar for greater things.
