How I Style African Print

Hey guys! I’m so glad that I was able to make this video – you have no idea. But with school and not having a camera of my own it was pretty hard to do. I was walking in Greenwich Village, NYC and I came across this guy with a surplus of so many items covered in vibrant colors and beautiful prints. I’m the type of person who doesn’t have a set style but wears almost everything from different styles. I’ve recently been obsessing over Solange Knowles and her perfect pairing of prints, patterns and loud colors. So it was only fitting that I start with some African print. I’ve always loved African print but I didn’t have many pieces besides the skirt my mom made. In this video I decided to show you guys how I style some of my pieces for the summer. I also tried my best to find everything that I wore or similar styles! All photos were taken by Jalessa Montaque. If you are looking for a photographer/videographer in the NY/NJ area contact her. You may use photos [only] with permission from either Jalessa or myself.
