Hey hey now!
I want to encourage people to express their individuality, their independence by showing them how to revamp items to suite their own style. My specific sense of style *and in no way am I a fashionista* is afrocentricity and Indie chic with a splash of bohemian flare. Not everyone knows what this means. So I’m going to start AFRO-INDY 101 sessions. :) Knowledge is power people, know what you are representing.
First things first DEFINITION!
Afrocentric - emphasizing or promoting emphasis on African culture and the contributions of Africans to the development of Western civilization
No motherland roots? No problem! You just may enjoy the colorful patterns, or the chunky beaded jewelry, and that’s fine.
Indie – Independent style, a term used to describe independence from major commercial labels, a Do-It-Yourself approach
Sometimes you just don’t want to wear whats “IN”. Maybe you just made the baddest belt out of buttons you’ve collected for a while, but the style is faux snake skin waist wrappers. Throw that trend to the wind and rock those buttons!
Boho- Bohemian, a style of female fashion drawing on various bohemian and hippie influences
Ready for a date night, but not into anything clingy? Get the gypsy look. Slip on a flattering peasent top, slide on a gang of bangles, bracelets and cuffs. Boho is all about light layers and nifty accessories.
See people, its really simple. :) As usual I'd love to hear your feed back. Is your style definition of these three? If not what is your style?
