The man is wearing khaki pants, brown shoes, and an African-designed purple shirt. Meanwhile, the lady is wearing a purple one-shoulder mermaid dress. They look great even without a touch of African fabric on their attires.

Common designs for Sepedi traditional attires are pleats, embroidery or ribbon trimmings. Women's outfits range from calf-length skirts, pleated blouses and long voluminous dresses. The men would wear colourful kilts, but modern ones prefer Ankara designed attires.
