We love celebrating cultures in many ways, and for many reasons.
Many were looking forward to wearing culture on their sleeves and more in honor of Essence Festival, Coachella, Broccoli Festival, Oz Festival, and movie: red carpet premieres like African royalty at the Black Panther premiere to the kente cloths worn by CBC members at the State of the Union. We’ve seen more black pride from a style perspective (and as a form of protest) this year than ever before.
If you want to show your cultural appreciation this summer (yes, I know it’s Festival season), we picked stunning African-inspired or original looks you’ll love and each look is anywhere from $100 – $400. Pick and click through to find your favorite style!
