Now I must admit I am a sucker for any kind of upper torso action in fashion, but I especially live for shoulder details; shoulder pads, structured shoulders, or a capped sleeve to enhance the shoulder, I love it all. Amazingly, this summers biggest trend bares it all, the off the shoulder detail! So, needless to say I am in social media heaven. I have searched through Instagram and Twitter feeds, and yes even Pinterest to find beautiful looks that make me have to sit on my hands to avoid the “must buy” itch! Why you ask? because I’m addicted!
Bloggers and everyday Fashionistas alike have rocked the trend and no two shoulder looks are alike. As one would imagine, what you could do with an off the shoulder look seems limited, but not so in 2016. We have seen some of the most innovative off the shoulder dresses, tops, and even some looks that have incorporated a mean sleeve. Many of the outfit of the day styles have been supremely minimalistic and it seems to be the perfect combination of style and smarts.

Now there are a ton of cutting edge .com’s dedicated to head wraps and the like, but is this beautiful cloth that we have fallen oh so in love with a fad waiting to leave us longing for it to roll around again like shoulder pads and track suits? Will it be one of the fashion trends we associate with some of the most fashionable times in our lives? Some say it’s here to stay and here’s why, in Nigeria, for example, 43.7 percent of the population is under 15-years-old. This is driving immense creativity and growth as the regular lists of Africa’s emerging entrepreneurs signals.
All signs are pointing to yes for the longevity of the vivid fabric, market places are being created for African artisans to sale their goods globally with ease and large retailers are collaborating with Africa’s entrepreneurs to bring their brands to the masses. Furthermore, high end designers like Stella MacCartney have introduced the print into their collections with much success. It’s our sincere hope that the African print trends is here for good, its bold, unforgettable and gives a much needed jolt to the fashion world.
