I’ve always wanted to try out an ‘African look’. I said to myself that if I was to try it out I would start off with a blazer seeing as I love blazers because they go well with any look you pick out of your wardrobe. I felt left out since every guy I know has been on the African print vibe and I didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to represent the Mother Land. It has really taken the streets by storm right now, so I would advise you, yeeees you reading this post! Get an African statement piece in your wardrobe and wear it proudly.
I am currently wearing a piece by. Shiyenze who is an African based designer currently in Kenya. The Kamba in me decided to go with this tone of fabric which complimented my skin tone 😉
I paired this look with chocolate brown pants, a milk white v-neck t-shirt and a pair of white and gold tone sneakers.
TIPS: When matching, try to find a colour on the print of the item that will match with the rest. When in doubt go for white, black or blue.
* Pair the blazer with a plain trouser. I went with a brown trouser.
*The colour print of the blazer should compliment your skin tone.
