African Prints
African print fabric has proven to be so versatile that it is now recognized on the global fashion scene and will be seen locally in streetstyle and contemporary fashion. African print fabric has metamorphosed from cultural attire to a glamorous wardrobe must-have, and right now the spotlight is on Africa. Designers like Tanganika by Tangie inspire us to wear the print as a gown, blouse, or by mixing prints with tops and wide leg trousers.

Florals & Stripes
There is no other fashion rule more outdated than "don't mix your prints"! This spring, print-clashing like a stylish pro is easy when you use a beautiful family of colors and prints like black-and-white gingham and florals or black stripes with a red base of florals.

Accessories make a complimentary statement of their own. Take the approach of more is more, and style your looks with bold and colorful accessories. Think the bold and the beautiful! Use the color palette of your wardrobe as a source of inspiration. Jeweled and stone earrings to complement a graphic tee, ethnic necklace pieces to accentuate a flowy dress, a natural and earthy statement piece to add an edge — it all works.
