Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park saw a burst of color, unbroken unity, and an overall fierce takeover of its grassy lands! Afropunk was here and ready to let us in its secret magical world of fashion and history.
Here are some of the most inspirational looks, that will have you screaming ” yaaaassss” and other obscene words that we won’t mention here!
Let the annual Afropunk 2017 commence and feast your eyes on melanin-rich beauties, who come from every generation and represent every walk of life.
Burning away the competition is Nyanayul who reinvented everything we know about festival fashion by walking around in heels and a crisp pant.
We can’t decide which part of this outfit we like best. From Mckensi’s 90’s inspired box braids to the quirky touch of those feminine socks mixed with the festival ready boots, everything is on point, much like Mckensi herself!
Everyone should take a page out of Yaaserwaah book and use fashion as a way to start talking about topics that actually matter. This “trend” was even followed during NYFW!
Flower crown? THAT IS SO 2015! Flower bread is where it’s at! Not to let the ladies have all the fun, Thadious took this trend and made it his own and we are living for it.
How many times should we scream QUEEEN at Hazel for her to come and help our sad ootds? Probably an unthinkable number!
Rochelle took the pretty in pink to another level by even adding touches of the color in her hair and makeup! We are obsessed with her feminine take on Afropunk without compromising on the quintessential bold style of the festival.
When it comes to Afropunk, this look is considered “simple” and yes, Tushiya is rocking a full crown braid and a multi layered choker.
If you think YOU have a strong style game.. well, think again because Kenneth and Jaquam just destroyed the game, the board and also our mind!
Sade stayed ahead of the trends and debuted her style and those killer abs in this one tone two piece number. We are dying after those Africa silhouette earrings and well, her entire outfit, really!
We got double trouble with this on-trend couple who matched together by using tones of none other than millennial pink!
Sometimes all you need is a t-shirt and a beautiful smile.
You know what is true fashion? When your drink perfectly matches your outfit and that is exactly what Nickolas did here.
Take a moment to truly just admire the detail, love and craftsmanship that went into creating Akua Sha’s elaborate bead work hairstyle.
That shirt says it all.
Different textures, different patterns, and different styles all come together to create an outfit that is just as memorable as it is stylish. Now, that is how you slay Afropunk, Devin and Otis!
Let it be known that Helen not only is a master of color coordinating her outfits but also can rock a killer hairstyle, that us mere mortals can only dream off!
We loved the low-key way Jessica and Amber coordinated together – they are wearing matching chains- without losing their own personal style.
