Long Street, Cape Town

On my trips to Cape Town, I always try and find new and interesting places to visit as these places are what Cape Town is all about. My recent trip was no different and before I knew it, I found myself in Long Street – The most hipster slash vintage place I have ever been to.

The stores in Long Street follow everything but the status quo. They are small and each unique in its own way with clothing, shoes and accessories you won’t be able to find anywhere else in the country. Even the coffee shops are decorated in old vintage ways with black and white photographs on the walls and some of the most interesting menus you’ll come across in your life.

Jeffrey Cambell shoes are the main attraction at one of the stores whilst another try to stand out by selling only secondhand old vintage clothes from the early 1900’s. The #1 must see store of this street however, would be A-List, featuring all the hottest new trends in a small boutique with unique as well as 100% exclusive designs. No wonder Long Street is considered one of the fashion neighbourhoods in SA!

So whenever you find yourself in the Mother City of South Africa, be sure to add Long Street on top of your to do list.
