Love bright, vibrant coloured clothing? Excited about the thought of wearing striking, bold patterns? Want to be a bit more unique in your clothing choices and stand out from the crowd?

Then African fashion is definitely for you. Say hello to your new statement wardrobe that looks simply gorgeous throughout every season.

African fashion is oh-so-versatile and allows you to experiment with colours and patterns to create a new look every day if you so desire.

Here are our top 5 reasons why you should take inspiration from the world of African fashion and incorporate it into your daily wardrobe. 

1. Easy to incorporate into your every day style

Over recent years, African fashion has grown in popularity with many fantastic designers and bloggers in this area. The best thing is, you can really make it unique to your sense of style. There's an outfit for every occasion - whether you want to go casual, add colour to your work wardrobe or have a friends wedding coming up - you can dress your outfit up or down to create the desired result.

2. Bright, bold and beautiful

One of the best things about African fashion is the array of bold statement colours and prints. You can either make your whole outfit bright, bold and beautiful or just choose a statement piece to incorporate into your look to add a new element of interest to that black blouse. Whether that is through a pair of shoes, stunning necklace or a flowing skirt, the end result is as fantastic as ever.

Perhaps the best thing about the variety of colours is that you can really match it to your personality and play around with the right tones that complement you and your skin tone the best. We say, have fun with it and experiment; you’ll soon learn what works for you.

3. Prints Galore 

You walk into a high-street shop and most clothes have safe prints and patterns. African fashion is a lot more interesting with many different prints to choose from and all with a different meaning. The prints are used tell stories, proverbs and traditional tales.

We particularly love that you can clash your prints, which ensures your outfit truly is unique. It can be tricky to pull off, a top tip is to put together the style of pattern or colours used, so that the two prints you are planning on wearing together almost match, but not quite. 

4. Dress to Impress

With African fashion in your wardrobe, there are never ending options to dress up your outfit, whatever the occasion. For example if you fancy going out in your little black dress, breathe some new life into it by adding a focal point such as a sash, scarf or printed headband.

5. Easy to put together 

Believe us, there is nothing difficult about African fashion. The trick is to subtly add it into your style as little or as much as your personality and fashion statement allows. 

Not just a trend; African fashion is here to stay.
