â€œCreate your own styleâ€¦ let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.â€Â
â€• Anna Wintour
Mama Liberia will be 169 years onÂ July 26. In whichever way you decide to celebrate her independence, let it be unique to yourself, yet identifiable to others. The 26 is a day to celebrate our freedom, therefore be sure to identify with your African heritage on this day. To stand out in style and confidence, wear dazzling prints, embroidery, bold colors, wild prints, tribal jewelry along with flowing, ripple dresses.
Try to incorporate the colors red, white and blue when selecting your overall 26 look. Color blocking is the perfect way to do so on a sunny day at an outdoor event such as a Cookout or a block party.
For beach activities, a baby doll maxi beach dress, an Aztec print swimwear or a ruffle detail swimsuit is ideal. Bardot Beach Dresses are an absolute for dashiki lovers. Vibrant embroidered Bardot beach maxi dresses is an alternative to dashiki for those who want to go for the traditional look.
For formal events, Have on anÂ eye-catching longÂ dress or play it safe with a little black or cream dress together with color block heels and beaded jewelry.
