Cape Town Onesie style guide

How to style your onesie for Cape Town living

With the number of options for a onesie Cape Town is now seeing, wrapping yourself up in awesome has never been easier, but where do you go from there? Celebrities are known for kicking everything up a notch, adult onesies included. From various prints, to some accessories that might be more suited to the next LMFAO music video, there are no boundaries.

From the perspective of fashion there is so much you can do with a onesie, wear it up wear it down, wear it any which way round. So we’ve taken it upon ourselves to put together a ‘Wear-To & How-To Guide’ for those of you who want a little more out of the latest fashion trend.

Taking a note from Henry Holland, designer and man behind the House of Holland, here is a look paired with brogues and a denim jacket.

A similar jacket is available at Woolworths for R999

Various styles of shoes are available from Woolworths, where a pair of genuine leather brogues would set you back a good R600. If this seems like a splurge, which it is, there are other alternatives at stores such as Markhams, Truworths Man, Mr Price. Nothing says trendy Capetonian in a onesie quite like this!

The next look is for the ladies and is inspired by the Queen B herself, Beyoncé. This effortless look is a festival go-to movefor locals. What better way to kick up some dust at a festival than with this simple fusion of Cape Town and the onesie?

Grab yourself a pair of cowboy boots, or even ankle boots and click your heels together to celebrate fashion! We love the black studded take on the cowboy boot (R479 from Style36) as well as the other alternatives.

Back to the boys we have Justin Bieber holding down the fort for our final men’s look. The kid is a lot of things, one of the best being his impeccable taste in onesies. To pull off his look all you need is a decent peak cap, some swinging bling and a pair of “kicks”. For the men of Cape Town kicking back in a onesie has never been better!

We love the blue pair of genuine leather Fitflop high-tops that go for around (R1629) and these other alternatives! They are from Bullboxer and Diesel and all available online from Style36!

For the final women’s look we have the lovely Rihanna who seems to turn every moment into a fashion statement. Here she is seen pairing some vintage sunglasses with strappy heels to add and not distract the eye from her blue and grey onesie outfit. This look is for the ladies who want to add a touch of elegance to the latest trend. This high fashion look is perfect for summer days where you can still wear onesies in Cape Town.
