Top African Print Accessories You Need This Year


African print accessories for your wardrobe

Bright and bold, yet intricate and delicate, modern and fashionable, yet infused with rich history and culture.

Few fabrics can boast such a diverse description. However, African print fabric is all those things and more.

The African fabric industry is extremely old, originating in 5,000 BC when Egyptians began cultivating and weaving flax into linen. It's still in fashion today, with superstars, such as Beyoncé, Rihanna, and even Michelle Obama, rocking the look.

Are you brave enough to try it? Maybe you're a bit hesitant to try a full-on outfit, but what about accessories?

Read on for the essential African print accessories you need to brighten up your wardrobe this year.

Adjust Your Crown

Headwear is a great way to incorporate African prints into your wardrobe.

Headwraps are culturally important in African heritage. They're also taking the fashion world by storm with top designers using them on the catwalk.

If headwraps seem too much for the occasion, how about a subtle headband? Kids look super cute wearing funkily patterned headbands too.

Baseball caps covered in a variety of prints make for a cool addition to a casual outfit for both women and men.

Just because the weather is dull doesn't mean your outfit should be! Beanie hats with bright African prints look awesome on a cold rainy day for young and old alike.

Life's Short - Buy the Bag!

An African print bag is a perfect accessory for all occasions. From the office to a night out, you'll always look fabulous with a well-chosen bag.
