These statement pieces can be strong, African inspired patterns or fabrics that bring attention to a person's best assets while providing a fun, clean, and professional look.
African clothing for both men and women has always been characterized by loud and vibrant colors.

Perhaps what makes it great is its ability to complement darker skin tones and make those who wear them stand out. Here are some great color matching tips you can take to your wardrobe:
African clothing can be traced back to as early as 3000 B.C. Many archeologists have found various remnants of cloth in Central, North and West Africa. During the earliest phases of traditional African fashion, many groups traded clothing and other symbolic objects. Fabrics were woven to create decorative dresses, wrapped clothing, shirts and trousers. Many of the costumes were made for ceremonial purposes and worn by African dancers during ritualistic performances. These designs were also very elaborate and multi-layered.
