African Print Clash

Prints and Layering

I don’t know why I wasn’t born in the 50’s, the fashion of that era appeals to me deeply. Here is me turning this beautiful mixed print from Pistis Ghana into a vintage inspired trendy modern look. Mixed print is a favorite of mine. This dress is made from three different prints with enough attention to detail from buttons to the black arm straps held together by metallic pin brooches. The black bands make the back of the dress beautiful.

The dress has this school girl look to it which I love, with the chunky metallic Alexander McQueen chain, black lace cuffs and black shoes I look party ready. Layering with the denim skirt creates additional volume and texture making it even more fun. Layering with a plain denim is ideal in this situation because the dress is beautifully busy by itself.img_5245

Another way to rock this dress can be with either a black turban or denim corset belt. I will be sharing more of my African print favs so make sure you are subscribed to my blog.
