African prints are popular on runways but are also wearable in many situations. If you like African inspired fashion or want to show off your heritage, here are some ways to incorporate these styles into your wardrobe.
Wraparound skirts are traditionally worn in Nigeria and other parts of Africa. Bold colors, patterns, and eyelet designs may represent elements of African style. These skirts are the perfect summer wear and stand out beautifully when paired with simple sandals and a tank top.
Iros are a type of rectangular African garment that wraps around the waist and stays in place, whether worn as part of a skirt or as an embellishment to any look. Depending on the style, an iro can serve roughly the same purpose as a chunky belt and be worn at work.
Those who want to add a little color or flair to their outfits but are not that confident wearing bold patterns and bright hues can still add excitement to casual or dressy looks by using the right accessories. Wazzala bracelets and Maasai bangles, for instance, offer varying degrees of color, and range from slim to chunky bands. If you want to make a statement with your jewelry pieces, you can’t go wrong with these tribal or wooden necklaces.
If you find African inspired clothing that you love, it is possible to make it a part of your wardrobe. Fun and vibrant African fashion can help you look and feel great.
