Accessories are items that add to a person's appearance and allow the individual to express their individuality and personality. Furthermore, they complete an outfit and enhance the wearer's style. Whether it is a bag, a cap, or jewellery, here's a selection of accessories you can pair with your African print clothing to enhance its beauty. To celebrate the Black history month, all the accessories are from black-owned brands
No one wears African prints with hats like Angel Obasi (@styleconnaisseur on Instagram). Hats add a touch of class to any Ankara print, whether you are wearing a gown or a top and skirt. Put on dark shades, a hat, and an Africa print dress, and you instantly look like a very successful CEO. Hats picture credit: @africandesignersmall and @monrowenyc on Instagram
Rich aunty vibes are perfectly embodied by head wraps with African print. You would look incredibly glamorous in a head wrap styled with our Infinity maxi dress, or even just any plain shirt with our African print trousers. The wrap can be done with any scarf or head tie you have on hand or it can be bought from a black-owned business (@shopfeline on Instagram) like the one in the picture. You can also purchase your head wraps from us.
Bags are an important essential for a lady, regardless of whether they are made with African prints or the usual leather bags, and as such you should be sure that they do more than serve the purpose of being a necessity, but also a way for you to express yourself. I like to think of bags from @danieldiyepriye and @anima.iris as good examples of bags that fit well with African prints.
Jewellery can enhance a woman's unique personality and bring out her best features when selected appropriately for the occasion. Brooches, rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and pendants are all pieces of jewellery. African print is made so much more spectacular by jewellery. An example of this is how beautiful Ghanaians look when dressed in traditional kente and gold accessories.

As they say, shoes are a girl's best friend. In addition to complementing your outfit beautifully, they give you a sense of inner confidence. No matter if it is sneakers, sandals, heels or flats, you can wear anything with an African print. This will depend on how you feel at a given moment, where you are going and what you are wearing.
