Print on Print, Fashion Forward Style

FOLKSHELF.COM recently released some campaign pictures for their upcoming Aberdeen African Fashion Pop Up Shop. I am here wondering why I am late to print on print fashion.

What’s not to love?

The colours, the skin tone, the skirts, tops, bangles….

Print on Print Fashion, my official go to this summer 😘.

This is gradually evolving into a Fashion and Beauty Shopping and Networking event, by local African Inspired businesses in Aberdeen showing interest in showcasing their products and services.

What to look forward to are African print fashion styles and statement accessories, cultural crafts and dècor, beauty products and services, enjoying AfroBeat music as you kick back to have drinks with friends and family.

African Print and Lace,The Sophisticated Look!

There is something about African Print and Lace combo in a dress. There is this sophistication about the look. African Print fabric is described as exotic that gives this bold colourful style, while lace is a tender girly fabric. So its understandable to agree that African Print and Lace can give you the sophisticated style you want.

The Ziva Dress is a classic example; simple dress with the ability to be a head turner at an event. 

The shoulder detail on the Gaia Dress is simply gorgeous and I do have a soft spot for mini dresses 😉😎. I like simple, yet intriguing styles. 

I know I should be focusing on the Piper Dress, but all I am thinking of are the outfits to slay with that chain bag the model has on…. 😩Swooning over!

The Piper Dress, everyone needs dresses that accentuate their figure. Even better when done by lace details 😉. 

African Print Style in Winter

I noticed that people ditch their African Print clothes or should I say there are less African Inspired Fashion trend setters during the cold months. This really shouldn’t be the case.

Most African Print styles are cotton fabric and aren’t cold resistant. That said, there are lots of ways to use “summer” declared  clothes in Winter. 

Due to the boldness of the African Print fabric, a good way to rock your print during the cold months is wearing it as a sort of accessory. I know, you are wondering what I mean by that. 

This whole outfit can stand alone with out the African Print mini skirt from FOLKSHELF.com. But without the skirt, this style completely looses the edge that makes it fascinating. This is what accessorising your African Print clothes in the cold months look like.
