Without much ado, here are a few African street style trends we PYTs in India can learn and adopt from African trends and fashion ways. A sneak peak to all things vibrantly good and colorful, now unveiled!
Long Printed Maxi Gowns
Summers can be harsh and cruel much in Africa as it is in our own country, and this is why the rule of wearing loose fitting clothes, such as maxi gowns for work or pleasure is often noticed. The same African street fashion can be applied to our PYTs here at home; beat the heat in total style and look chic too!
Statement Necklaces And Three-Quarters
What we love about this look is that the ‘trying-too-hard’ aspect doesn’t come through, and yet makes the figure stand out so shapely too. Heels with three-quarter shorts and a sleeveless top is chic enough for a walk to the mall, but accessorizing it with a beaded fantasy on the neck; steals the show!
Simple And Pretty
Coffee with the girls out on a summer evening and you want to look cool without too much on you? Play with colours and textures, so lightweight and trendy, you’d grab eyeballs around the city for sure. Notice how the African community celebrates women in all shapes and sizes, beauty galore!
