JUMPSUITS ARE BACK…AFRICAN STYLE

 

We say they never left !…….

Jumpsuits/Rompers/Boiler Suits have been around since the late 60’s , 70’s, throughout the years as always with fashion its had many makeovers.

In Spring/Summer 2013 Jumpsuits were re introduced to a new generation of fashionistas, GONE were the 80’s denim dungarees your mum got you to wear to school and IN were the one shoulder, off shoulder, strapless jumpsuits.

Then in 2014 we got hit with floral and patterns, so now you had jumpsuits in a floral print. In 2015 the boiler suit made an appearance. Forget your standard uniform boiler suits these were trendy and had flattering cuts that cinched in the waist to show the womanly figure teamed with accessories and some strappy heels or stilettos that was it for your night on the town.

One thing i love about a good Jumpsuit is its perfect for all occasions, you know that dress code ( Smart- Casual ) well a jumpsuit is perfect for that. Or if your going to a wedding, awards party, night on the town with the girls..with the right accessories and shoes its a wrap. We obviously will not focus on the matter of having completely undress in order to use the washroom. – Whoever said looking good was easy 

So as you all may know by now  i am an advocate for Bold Colours, Prints and Patterns so our 2017 Jumpsuit collection definitely had to incorporate this.

We currently have 3 Jumpsuit Silhouettes in our catalogue each of these pays homage to the jumpsuits from the late 60’s, 70’s, 80 and 2000’s ( notice we left out the noughts ) the less said about that decade the better lol.

So lets introduce you to Jumpsuit 1: OHEEMA CAPE JUMPSUIT- Meaning Queen in Twi Dialogue native to Ghana – Click Here to Shop 

This Jumpsuit gives a throwback to the 70’s/current trends, the use of the cape is very 70’s, then the one shoulder shows a bit of skin just to create that allure feel but not to much, the trousers are tailored cut and comes with a fitted waist to create a beautiful shape and silhouette. This definitely one of our favourites as seen worn by @kishmykurls. This design teamed with African print is amazing and can be worn to any event and is truly a showstopper.

Jumpsuit 2 : SOFI OFF SHOULDER JUMPSUIT Click Here to shop 

They say the shoulder is one of the sexiest parts of a woman’s body…so if that is the case why not create a jumpsuit that shows exactly that. The Sofi Jumpsuit has a big bold flare that simply skims off the shoulder then has the latest trend to come back from the 50’s and 60’s ( The cigarette pants )  so combine the 2 together and you have a jumpsuit that shows off not only those sexy shoulders but also gives the illusion of having long gorgeous legs.

Jumpsuit  3: HALI DEEP PLUNGE JUMPSUIT  Click here to shop

Well this jumpsuit is not for the shy, 2016 was all about the deep plunge and we have carried that over into 2017. Teamed with tailored trousers, again this is one of those jumpsuits teamed with strappy heels with gorgeous accessories looks amazing definitely a show stopper.

Matching Duo Contemporary African Print Outfits

Happy Monday Everyone,

With Valentines Day around the corner it’s time to talk: Couples, Duos, Partners etc, so today we thought we would share with you our matching duo collection. One of the reasons we started Styles Afrik Occasion wear was to allow couples to match without having to be too traditional.

Last year my partner and i were invited to a wedding and although we did not want to match exactly we thought it would be nice for him to have maybe a Tie or Bow-tie in the same fabric as my dress. Lord and behold it was like looking for a needle in a haystack, although we were able to get the fabric and get my dress done with no problem, finding a tailor that made Ties, Bow ties was almost impossible.

This gave us the idea to expand and source quality well made Men’s Accessories, so if you want something subtle or your ready to make a statement with an African Print blazer, it’s time to start matching with your partner.

These Duos Outfits are perfect for Prom, Weddings, Galas or a simple night out…..

Winter Blues OUT and Winter Brights IN

So many of us around the globe are currently facing snow storms, blizzards or dreadful rain, however there is also a large proportion of us who are currently sunbathing in scorching temperatures. Unfortunately i am one of the many people living in a city that only experiences 2-3 months ( if we are lucky ) of sunshine a year and the majority of the time filled with either snow or rain….Have you guessed where yet?

That’s right the lovely city called ( LONDON ). So for those of you sunbathing right now or enjoying a nice stroll in the glorious weather [please spare 1 min to think about us while your sipping on a lovely cocktail with the breeze blowing through your hair.

So as i am sitting in the office drinking a cup of HOT Chocolate with the wind blowing outside and snow falling i had a thought!

“Should the weather dictate what we wear or should we dictate what we wear?”  So many of us wait until we see a little sunshine before we start folding away the Greys and Blacks in our closets. ( Why is that? ) Surely if you feel liking wearing Pink or Yellow in the winter then you should go ahead and do so and not be looked upon like a complete lunatic.

I never understood why retail outlets immediately change all of the colours in-store as soon as Autumn/Winter appears forcing you to wear Blacks and Greys and Dark colours.

Winter should not be about blending into the dark miserable greys of the clouds. So today i say lets stand up to the WINTER BLUES and and bring in the WINTER BRIGHTS.

Many of you who may know me know that i have always loved and appreciated colour and building Styles-Afrik has given me the platform to embellish on that.

I don’t agree that you should wear that little black dress to the party or the club , why blend in with 100’s of other women  surely those events are about standing out and bringing out your inner brightness.

So ladies and gents here is my suggestion every time you think about purchasing the same Black or Grey outfit think about this blog.

Here are some some suggestions to help keep you warm but also help to release your inner brightness. img_20170104_084500_504

African Print in the Workplace

Our topic of discussion today is: Would you wear African print to your corporate workplace.

For years we have been told that Dark Blues, Black and Greys are deemed as corporate colours that should be worn to the office. Some of you may decide to add a splash of colour with your blouse or shirts, but typically speaking even when you decide to vamp it up lord behold you are definitely going to get some comments from other colleagues who deem this as being too bold and bright.

So the question is should we be afraid to wear African print or bold colours and print  in our workplace for fear of either being type casted or ridiculed.

What are your thoughts..should we risk it an wear whatever we want to wear including African Print into the  workplace, it doesn’t have to be a full outfit it could simply be Ankara print skirt, blazer.

Send us your views in comments

Here are some ideas of what you could wear to the office
