There’s something that just feels right about wearing a great outfit to an event you’ve been looking forward to.

It’s a spring in your step, a certain swagger that you can’t really explain, but it definitely helps to make the most of a good day out.

If you happen to be down in the Cape this weekend you’ll have heard about the Cape Town International Jazz Festival, taking place this Friday and Saturday at the Cape Town International Conference Centre (CTICC).

It’s the kind of festival where you might want to dress to impress – after all, it is ‘Africa’s Greatest Gathering‘ – and we’re going to steer you in the direction of some local talent that is pretty impressive.

We’re talking about bluecollarwhitecollar, and here’s a peek inside one of their stores:

Stylish, fitted and retro-classic shirts for days, and all produced right here in the Cape – perfect to impress at the Jazz Fest.

Of course there’s the added bonus of standing the chance to win the VIP experience to the Festival if you’re buying anything from bluecollarwhitecollar – details HERE, but hurry because entries close today.

Who doesn’t want a little extra strut as they ready themselves to listen to some of the world’s foremost jazz musicians rocking out in the Mother City?

With shops on Kloof Street and Canal Walk in Cape Town, The Zone @ Rosebank Mall and Montecasino in Jozi, and Menlyn Park Shopping Centre in Pretoria they’ve covered most bases, but we hear you Durban.

Fear not, because a new store is set to open at Ballito Junction very soon.

If you’re wanting to dress to impress you’ll want to check out Magents while you’re at it, with shirts like their Bikonscious range proving incredibly popular.

You’ll also get to take a look at the Magents range, as well as bluecollarwhitecollar, Democracy of Denim, and Wear South Africa, at the Jazz Festival itself.

Keep an eye out for their snazzy container on the west side of the CTICC, next to the Baseline Stage and underneath the flyover bridge.

There will also be photo opportunities created just for you. Snap a picture and share it on your social media feeds with a hashtag thrown in, and you might take home a nice memento of you looking all dapper.

Here’s hoping the Jazz Festival is one the Mother City looks back on fondly, and if you happen to look the part while you’re at it then everyone’s a winner.
