DASHIKI-ISH VERSATILY

Hi loves!
The day after MLK day! Hmmm…well, let’s just say I woke up in a dashiki-ish mood this morning!

Generally speaking, when I see people rock their dashiki garments, it’s always in casual outfits. But, in actuality, dashiki pieces can also be dressed up. Here is my take on a more put-together dashiki outfit, and I hope it will get you inspired!

I paired it with a pair of black leggings, topped with a black military-style fitted  blazer. To kinda keep it on the minimalist side, I went for black on black accessories, with these gorgeous peep-toe zipped front booties and and black and gold purse.

It is as simple as it looks really. Obviously, the highlight of this look is my dashiki shirt in pink tones. You can take any direction with it. If you want it a little more formal, throw in some suit pants and a pair of black suede pointy heels instead, and voila!! I might actually try it myself pretty soon, and let you see the final result. Meanwhile, let me rock this one look for the day!

  1. Nice idea…. nice outfit… instead of wearing it with a jean… a black legging is also perfect… and I love the shoe… it matches perfectly with the outfit👌
