Glamour Tip - Why Africa is everywhere right now...

Open a fashion magazine and you see tribal prints. Ethnic fashion and African influences are everywhere. Look at any international designer and they have taken inspiration form Africa...Herve Leger, Balenciaga, Balmain and Isabel Marant. 

African fashion is inspiring every S/S'15 mood board and collection...colours, prints, patterns, bright beading, bone and shell accessories, animal printed bags and exotic skin leathers...all can be incorporated into your everyday style...

My Glamour Tip is to choose an item and keep the rest basic. The above outfit is the perfect adding simple accessories and a pop of colour, to make just enough of a statement. Another option is to bring the trend in with accessories like shoes, sunglasses or bags and jewellery.

By adding one or two statement pieces to your style you can embrace this trend and bring a little piece of Africa into your everyday look.
