Recently, a friend of mine was hosting an all-white African party and I was on the hunt for a fabulous all-white everything outfit.
Now that it’s summer, white outfits are easy to find in stores like H&M, Forever 21 and American Apparel, but here at Face2FaceAfrica, we love us some African brands. Here are a few options for those who love wearing African.
THE CROCHETED LOOK- This summer, celebs like Solange and Cassie have been rocking the crocheted look and this crocheted white dress with a peter pan collar from Ohema Ohene is right on trend.
THE PANTSUIT- Everyone from Rihanna to Eva Marceille has been spotted rocking all white pantsuits. Mimi Plange has the perfect white suit, as shown here, worn by actress, Vanessa Hugdens. This flared panstuit from Ituen Basi also looks fab.
THE LWD- Forget about the LBD (Little Black Dress). It’s all about the Little White Dress this summer, and this twiggy dress by Coccolily is perfect for showing a little skin.
THE FLOATY DRESS- One of our favorite things about summer is the laid-back vibe it gives. Clothing can be more relaxed and loose fitting, so we can breathe. Liya Kebede turned heads when she rocked a floaty white dress to the CDFA awards. Get her look with this Moyo dress by Lalesso, or this one by Tiffany Amber.
THE WHITE DRESS, WITH A TOUCH OF COLOR- This dress by Nigerian designer, Adebayo oke Lawal, is a show stopper and will make you stand out from the crowd.
ACCESSORIES- These flats by lalesso are perfect for an all-white everything outfit, while this scarf by Aiyda will keep the cool night breeze away.
