Head-wraps: I know that you are already thinking “malukazana/muroora” traditional Africanism right?
By Monde Black
There is a new global obsession with head-wraps, which have always been our thing as Africans; you see women have always worn them as a symbol of respect and modesty. However, lately, fashionistas from other continents have begun to adopt this trend.
Headwraps are very fashionable and can be worn fabulously to finish off your look. Oh, you know what, I argue that instead of “finishing ” off your look they actually “start” your look. I mean, it’s one way to cover up when you’re having one of those crazy bad hair days.
You can just pull your hair back and wrap your head with a “doek;” and you know what, they go well with almost everything. You can wear your top or whatever your clothing is and, accessorize with a pair of round earrings and sunglasses and add-on that sassy chocker.
The good thing about head wraps is that they can be worn both casually and formally. Throw in that white shirt, your huge neckpiece to create that statement, your studs and high heels.You can compliment that cool African look by adding thick bangles.
You might think that since this is a ‘modest’ look, minimal or no makeup is appropriate, but as you can see on this photos you can rock your makeup however way you want, fancy, black lipsticks and all.
Bedazzle your rainy spring day
Knit-wear on a rainy spring day is awesome with your head wrap. It’s absolutely fashionable and gives a laid-back tone, which still screams “feisty and African.”
We all love these headwraps, but they don’t just have to be one style we are all used to, you can pimp it up however way you want to.
And since we are in spring, rock this look with a pair of sunglasses and your summer dress with beautiful stud earrings. All in all African girls rock the most and this look complements us so so much, so why don’t you get yourself a cute Ankara print head wrap and get in style.
