What to Wear to the Lion King Premiere
The Lion King is making a resurgence to bring everything that we love about the original back to theaters on Friday, July 19th. The story about love, redemption and the circle of life was essentially a celebration of African culture. It's only right to honor Simba’s return to the pride lands by taking pride in your African-inspired attire when sitting amongst the crowd.

It’s an event that you won’t want to miss and that the entire family will enjoy. Check out our breakdown of must-have culturally confident looks to rock at the Lion King premiere.
