5 Must-Shop African Fashion Stores

It looks like dashiki and African clothing are currently (and have been) trending. Not only are our supa fly black celebs rocking the prints of the motherland, so are our fairer skinned brothers and sisters too. And, we’re all (mostly) here for that—as long as there’s no crazy cultural appropriation happening. (Yes, Kylie. We’re looking at you.)

Plus, with the AfroPunk festival right around the corner, there’s no better way to quell our excitement than compiling a list of some of our favorite places to shop cool African fashion. And while we love the classic dashiki, these shops show how versatile traditional prints can be.

Afterall, it’s 2017—time to step your African fashion game up ten notches.  

RAHYMA

About: Proudly Nigerian, Rahyma’s designs are bold, diverse and certainly head-turning. The styles run the gamut from casual and edgy (check out her African print t-shirt dresses) to glamorous and showstopping. Her Instagram page is what #closetgoals are made of and her fearless style has us wanting more.
