These Western clothes are definitely inspired by indigenous African fashion

Dashiki

It seems just like yesterday when wearing dashiki was the trendiest thing to do. Beyoncé, Chris Brown, Zendaya, Rihanna and others showed us just how it was done. One would have thought it was a western style clothing by the way it was made popular in western countries. The Dashiki, however, has its roots in West Africa and played a more serious role in the past, just like berets. The most popular of the Dashikis is the brightly coloured loose shirt design mostly donned during the summer, though there are many ways this fabric can be worn.
