There is a spectrum of style, and most of it is influenced by culture. In any capacity style has a lot to say, a message in the silence which becomes the signature. In this post we are going to celebrate taste makers who have a sense of self that rocks so hard, inspite of how many times it’s duplicated, the master’s can not be replaced. Notice the West African influence with a timeless look. She is owning all of it, flawlessly.
This also is a futuristic version of a classic look. A fear e homage to time past paired with the regal foresight of what is to come.
Sade Adu, sultry in both song and style. With a constant vibe like waking up in the beauty of the Caribbean and being wonderfully inspiring just by being in the room

Classic starlets of the big screen were many things, beautiful, smart and mesmerizing to audiences. She wears it well.
Mix prints with Amandla, she knows. There is a rhyme to the reason, not just anything goes.
Chaka new all about her aboriginal roots and reflected it instead of becoming a polly doll. I am so grateful she did.
“Be cool, or whatever, but get your self together, don’t be clever, trying to talk that nonsense.” Her look says all of this.
Style can also refer to writing. Alice Walker wrote a book named Meridian, my dad gave it to me in high school. Fresh from getting my heart broke, I read a chapter “Giving him back to his own”, changed so much about my outlook at the time.
Well she is style living and breathing. She made a comment featured below where I realized that brilliant is as brilliant does

Thrift print and wear it. A vintage button up paired with a chain and an updo. Simple but smart.
The faux color style is back and assist the striped look and circle frame glasses. A smart burst of orange next to the blue hues is tropical and that makes a chic statement in the corporate sphere.
The Indian elements that were introduced in this picture show a revolutionary spirit with an ode to freedom fighters and the picture reference of Ghandi, Carl Marx and others are located in the photo as well.
The skirt, the main of the outfit, after you find your skirt, the outfit pretty much puts together itself. I love a skirt that flows in the wind.
This is layered like a crepe, and I love all the folds. It’s a party dress I would wear for no reason.
Flora and fauna, this summer goes through glitches of heat, swim wear and sit there. Hey, why not?
Another classic, Dorothy Dandridge is still an actress with no equal. From Carmen opera to singing with her sisters, she was a triple threat, and a force to be reckoned with.
Updo and beads, stripes wrapped jewelry. Very much inspired by Western Africa, the updo is so smart in this heat, and the bead embellishments just make the whole style.
