Superheroes don’t always wear capes. Sometimes, they take the form of the most stylish stars serving fashion looks we readily pin to our inspirations boards for when the need arises. It’s because of this singular act of heroism by the fashion takes of African women that we can confidently say to our friends, “Say no more, I know just the right outfit for the occasion.“
Last week, we got a heavy dose of inspo as style stars across Africa came through dripping in pure glamour. Celebrities and top influencers played with it all: expressive patterns, bright colors, muted tones, and tailored silhouettes. The sartorial set was consequently dripped in finesse; the kind that’s only reserved for trendsetters.
They don’t call Nigerian A-list actress Rita Dominic the Queen of Style for nothing. Every piece she touches glows up instantly. Last week, she slipped into a two-tone red and hickory brown silk-satin mini dress by The Studio by S.B Youme and owned the look effortlessly. We can say the same for social media influencer Bukunmi Adeaga-Ilori who wowed us in a gold flowy dress by Accost Collection. She complimented the outfit with matching gold ornaments and a ponytail that completed the Coming to America vibe.
Looking all shades of glam in pastel peach, South African media personality Blue Mbombo was a vision to behold. She stunned in a two-piece suit by South African designer SCALO for a birthday celebration. The couture piece boasts intricate details of delicate flowers on the sleeves and statement bows on the blazer as well as pants. Finally (but in no way least), SA content creator, Mihlali Ndamase said to boring clothes “not today, not ever” in a delightful dress by Keys Fashion. The fabric, sleeves, and silhouette speak boujee as a first language.
The styles shared by African women and top fashion influencers last week were nothing short of chic, edgy, and glamorous and it’s safe to say that we are, as usual, living vicariously through them.
