Looks like the holidays are officially winding down. Now that we’ve spent quality time with friends and family it’s time to get dressed to the nines and ring in the new year. While you’re busy getting ready to look your best, it’s a good time to reflect on celebratory and holiday African outfits. 
We’ve mentioned this before, but African fashion has taken the globe by storm, showing up on world renowned catwalks, the hottest designer lines, and filling fashionista closets everywhere. 
Although it’s been almost a year since Black Panther made its debut to historic numbers, remnants of African influence are still sprinkled across the New York Fashion Week runways for Spring 2019
Africa is often called “The Motherland” and for good reason. The continent has shaped culture in diaspora communities in Western countries via migration of its people over the centuries. 
Whether you’re neck scarf deep in the latest fashion trends or just casually googling what was popular 2 years ago, it’s hard not to notice the global take-over of African fashion. Traditional African prints, patterns, and textures have been showing themselves on the runways of the most influential designers more and more every year.

Needless to say, gold is a powerful symbol of wealth, high status, and royalty in many African countries. A woman or man who dares to suit up in the regal gold hue is making a statement.
Today, African fashion takes the traditions of the past and incorporates them into the present. Modern day outfits hold root to their history during ceremonial occasions but have evolved to combine the same rules for street ware.
