Ethnically Inspired: Colorful Casual Wear!

 

For a woman who wears black most of the time, even in the summer months, a blast of color is a welcoming change. I love Afrocentric clothing; especially when accented with a basic staple, such as this denim jacket.  As you can see, I just threw on a simple T-Shirt that I got for a couple bucks at a discount store, topped it with a jacket that I found at a thrift shop for a few bucks and, of course, my go-to accessories to make it pop.

A friend of mine and I purchasedthese wrap skirts at one of my conferences from a vendor who specializes inethnicdesigns.  Youcan(should this be can’t?) tell by looking at the picture that it is actually a wrap.

This is a wrap skirt that can fit anyone whose size is from a 2 to a 22. I can envision this skirt paired with so many different tops, blouses, sweaters or jackets. It will also make a great beach cover-up. There are so many colors in this skirt that you are bound to have something already in your wardrobe to wear with it. I am even considering taking the skirt into early fall by adding a big sweater and a pair of suede boots.

Although it is a maxi on me, it is still versatile enough to be worn a little shorter on a taller person. I tried wearing with flat shoes, but it was too long, so I opted for a lower heel sandal.


I got a lot of compliments when I wore this skirt. Even the older ladies at the church seemed to have lovedit. I recommend this look for a casual night out at the movies, girl’s night out on the town or just a stroll around a summer festival when you just want to look cute and,of course,”Stand out”!
