When Pinterest dropped its 2019 trend report, I was thrilled to see that African print clothing was predicted to be huge this year. According to Pinterest data, searches for African print fashion were up a whopping 229 percent over the previous year. Since Pinterest says you’re interested, I’m sharing another great source for African-inspired styles.

When I was in Memphis for Memphis Fashion Week (read all about that here), I got connected to one of the featured designers–Tanganika by Tangie. African print fashion is Tangie’s specialty. Her designs rely on African-inspired prints because these patterns tell such unique stories that she shapes to suit her clients.
For Memphis Fashion Week, I was so lucky to have a pair of pants custom made for me in a featured print from Tangie’s collection. Be sure to swing by my Instagram page to see some of Tangie’s designs rip the runway.
To balance the relaxed vibe of joggers, I knew I wanted to show off my shoulders. My top is an oversized button down shirt. I draped it off the shoulders and tied it in the front to add a little flavor.
