Tips for Styling African Print Clothing

Every now and then you likely feel that urge to switch things up in your wardrobe and wear something more bright, colorful, and visually intriguing. You just want something different as a nice change of pace, something refreshing. That is exactly when you should pull together an outfit with African print clothing to give yourself something new. This type of clothing is not just beautiful, but easy to wear so you shouldn’t have any problems creating some fun, comfortable outfits that match your lifestyle. Just to show you what these clothes can do, we’re going to give you a quick crash course on how you can wear your African print clothing.

Why Wear African Prints?

Before we even get into some advice for wearing different kinds of African print clothing, we should first dedicate a moment to discussing why you might want to wear it in the first place. We and our customers absolutely adore our African prints here at Advance Apparels and we are more than happy to share in some of the fun with others. We love different styles of patterns and prints in textiles and African prints are some of our favorites. African prints bring out color and pattern when many people have gotten used to wearing only subdued colors like blue jeans and white T-shirts. They offer some fun and variety where it is much needed and appreciated. The designs and colors are eye-catching, the silhouettes are interesting, and the material itself is super comfortable. We use 100% cotton fabric that is breathable, moisture-wicking, and soft to the touch. It is the exact kind of fabric you want to touch your skin. If you have never worn or owned African print clothing before, we would recommend giving it a try sooner rather than later. It is a fun, easy way to switch up your style without completely replacing your entire wardrobe. Just take a look at some of the individual pieces you have at your fingertips and see how each one could fit into your life.

Printed Blouses

African print blouses are fairly easy for anyone to start wearing in their day-to-day life. This is probably the best option for those who do not wear prints or bright colors very often but want to start expanding their horizons. Printed blouses are easy to style around because you can wear them as you would any other printed blouse. Keep your outfit simple with solid colors and just have fun switching out your statement blouses every day. You can also bring down the print a little by wearing them under cardigans and jackets so that only some of the fabric peeks through. The off-the-shoulder styles are particularly fun in warmer weather when you want to bare a little skin, but not too much.

Dresses & Rompers

These one-piece African print garments have got to be the most versatile category and the easiest to wear at the same time, just as long as you are not afraid of a print. These clothes show off the prints proudly and boldly, so you can have a gorgeous outfit already created for you with just an African print maxi dress. Despite mainly making an outfit all on their own, these pieces offer a great amount of versatility, going from daytime casual to evening glamour with just the difference of accessories to transform them. You can wear them as they are with minimal accessories to create comfortable but cute looks for the day, or you can dress them up with classic accessories and heels to create dressier ensembles for the evening or special events. Regardless of the time of day, these types of African print clothing are super comfortable and easy to wear.

African Skirts

African print skirts are fun and fresh, perfect for the spring and summer. To style these, you have a lot of freedom to dress them up or down and create the kind of look you are in the mood for. This could mean wearing a T-shirt tucked into your knee-length skirt or a nice blouse that pairs well with your full-length printed skirt. It is all up to your tastes and the mood you are in at the moment.

Palazzo Pants

For those who are not big fans of dresses and skirts, it is far too easy to fall into the habit of wearing the same kinds of pants over and over again. Black pants are versatile and useful, but they get tired after a while and start to seem like a nonentity, which takes away some of the fun of getting dressed. African print palazzo pants are great for helping you to break out of those habits and to still wear pants but with more style. These pants give you color, pattern, and an interesting silhouette that you might have passed on if you kept your blinders on. You can style these with solid-colored blouses, fitted tops, and even crop tops to create a balance in the outfit. The bottoms provide the color and volume, while the top provides a simple complement so that the whole look does not begin to feel overbearing. You can also dress these up with heels, accessories, and nice blouses for more formal occasions or keep them casual with T-shirts and tank tops.

When you take the time to consider the kinds of outfits you could make using African print clothing, you might realize that it all comes down to your own personal style and what you find to be the best styles for you. You can dress them up, dress them down, create interesting looks, or just easy-to-wear outfits. It’s all about doing what you want with these versatile garments. African print clothing is just great at giving you the options and flexibility to do so and to exercise your creativity to create fun, inspired outfits. Just go ahead and check out all of your options at Advance Apparels. We have a great selection of diverse styles that work for any sort of occasion in your life, be it a party, work, running errands, or just being around the house in style. Take a look at your options for African print fashion and see what new outfits spring to mind.
