Beyoncé, Solange, Rihanna, and even our forever First Lady Michelle Obama shows us beautiful examples of black excellence all the time. From their poise to their fashion, the bar has been set high. Another thing they have in common is the fact that over the years, they have served us some great African Print looks and we wanted to show you how to get the look by using pieces in our new Spring 2022 collection.
Beyoncé is known for uplifting women of color, especially Black women through her powerful songs and bold, body celebrating moves. We have seen her pay homage to the continent in many performances and videos and we wanted to show you a way to tap into that same energy. To achieve this effortless look, may we suggest our ‘Zafia African Print Wrap Top’ in purple mandala, or styling our ‘African Print Head Wrap’ in orange black iris as a top. Bey is serving chill with sexy. Opt to throw on your favorite baseball cap, a set of gold bangles, roll up the sleeves, and throw on your go to all white sneakers or slide in heels. Remember, you want to be cute and comfy yet chic and sexy.
Now we know that Solange can literally do no wrong when it comes to her style. She is eclectic, sensual, and layered in her very own way. She has been wearing Ankara and African Print for ages and has managed to make it look good every time. We are loving these looks! To recreate it, throw on our ‘Farjana Stretch Woven Blazer’ with our ‘Abebe Stretch Wide Leg Pants’ both in our purple blue abstract colorway. This look is great for the office, cocktails, or a chic dinner party.
Before Rihanna was wearing outfits that accentuated her beautiful baby bump, she was giving us looks inspired by all corners of the world. This look can be recreated to match your style easily. Go for our ‘Onika African Print Stretch Woven Dress. Pair this with strappy sandals, gold jewelry, and a sleek low ponytail or a crisp top bun and this look will be complete.
Larenz Tate has been making us weak in the knees since he gave us ‘Darius Lovehall’ in ‘Love Jones’. And these days he is making 46 look really good. Guys, if you want to give this look a go, may we suggest our ‘Ireti African Print Color-Blocked Button-Up Shirt in our black red kente colorway. Paired with your favorite denim, this is a great option for day-to-night.
We can look to our favorite celebrities and their style to give our current looks an upgrade. Whether it be a day time outfit or classy date night outfit, our modern African prints serve up many options for creating your own celebrity inspired style.
