African Inspired Fashion Trends and Tips

Staying on top of each season's fashion trends can be challenging, but one fun and affordable way to do so is to select one or two trendy pieces and coordinate them with existing wardrobe staples. 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.

Trendy and timeless jewelry pieces are one of the easiest ways to keep up with changes in fashion. African inspired earrings, with their warm, rich shades of amber, gold and chocolate brown, are common sights in runways. Beaded styles as well as large glistening hoops coordinate well with office attire and make it easy to switch into a casual look for a night out.

Printed scarves are another chic way to dress up a suit for the office or a casual top and skirt for running errands. Try using African printed scarves as headwear or in lieu of a necklace or belt.

Shells are sleeveless tops with nearly unlimited versatility in any woman's wardrobe. A rich African print with its vibrant colors pairs well with slacks, a pencil skirt or a flowing pair of pants for any occasion. On warm days, a printed shell can be worn without accessories. A sweater or shawl can be added for cooler evenings, at church, or for wearing in chilly offices.
