The current trendy African print earrings, necklaces and clutch bags are a must have for women this festive season. And for the guys, a very good gift to buy a girlfriend this Christmas.
These trendy accessories are made out of the commonly known wax print fabric which is in most cases very colourful.
The accessories bring out what is commonly known as Afrocentric fashion.
Efua Hagan, the founder and CEO of Iola Designs LTD that specialises in trendy African handbags and interior décor, advises that these accessories blend well with plain clothes.
“African accessories are good with any type of occasional outfit. But since they are colourful, one should wear them with plain clothes. If for example you wear a kitengi dress with kitengi accessories, it will clash. If you wear kitengi accessories, with a plain outfit, the accessories will standout,” Hagan says.
She further says that one can match the clutch bag with the earrings especially if they are of the same kind of fabric.
“The best thing is to pick one of the colours that is in clutch bag or the earring , for example if they have a bit of red, yellow or black, one can wear a black dress thus blend with the accessories,” Hagan explains.
Therefore in your accessory wardrobe, an additional perfect pair of wax print earrings, clutch bags and necklaces would be great. If you don’t have them, you can go shopping in most African shops around town .Be Afrocentric fashionable this festive season.
