Hi Guys! I know its kinda too late to say this but Happy New Year! This month has literally been 99999999 days so I’m still allowed to say that haha. This post is the final post on journey I went through to show y’all how to wear your African print outfits and hopefully embrace them more.

DSC_0643-1DSC_0644-1For this outfit, I just couldn’t resist the urge to do and off shoulder design. I’m obsessed. I initially wanted to do an official fitting outfit but I decided to do something more fun and casual. I worked with the great Whitney of @el_afrique_ (on Instagram) who brought my design to life.DSC_0669-1DSC_0676-1I paired the dress with lace up chunky booties although I first gravitated towards a sandal heel that i would usually go for but this year is all about getting out of our comfort zones, no?

DSC_0659-1You can wear this outfit to church, a fun day out at lunch, brunch or meeting the girls. Cute sandals would also probably the more comfortable option if you’ll be moving around a lot.
Please, Please don’t forget to wear a strapless fitting bra with your off-shoulder outfit. The whole point is to show off your shoulders hunnie so ditch the bra straps.DSC_0679-1When working with designers or fundis I would advise you to already have a design in mind, make sure you pick one that you know is bound to do the work just how you want it. Insist on perfection especially when it comes to the fit of the outfit as well as the specific material you want them to work with if you don’t already have one and I assure you that you’ll have a variety of amazing African Prints that you can pair with literally anything.DSC_0720-1
