It’s one thing to know a few style hacks and a different thing to be style personified. Last week, African celebrities and style stars proved on all fashion fronts that they are fully ready to make this summer a fashionable one. Think floor-sweeping classics, structured pieces, bodycon numbers and bold color takes.
While breezy dresses are always a summer staple, Nigerian style star Toke Makinwa decided to go the unpredictable route by opting for a sporty monochrome dressing in a jolt of joy-inducing color. She looked totally pulled together in an all-pink fit that reminded us of the more relaxed pandemic aesthetic we’ve all come to embrace.
Keeping things feminine and timeless, Ghanaian Star Joselyn Dumas didn’t hesitate to put a dreamy touch out there in a teal green tulle dress, as styled by Kelvin Vincent. On the contrary, South African Buhle Samuels went the fierce route in an all-black-everything ensemble by Fashion Nova. The entire look was an ideal blend of delicate and intense and it’s safe to say Buhle nailed the look!
The looks shared by African celebrities 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.
