Fashion Trends: 2016 Afrocentric Prom Styles

Prom season is here, and I'm loving all the Afrocentic looks!

Since Kyemah McEntyre broke the internet last year with her Afrocentric Dashiki prom dress going viral, it comes as no surprise that this years prom season has been overflowing with Afrocentic looks.

All over social media, prom goers are sharing their custom made African print prom outfits. Within this trend, we see a lot of styles made out of the currently very popular dashiki print as well as a lot of kente print styles.

Check out some of my fave Afrocentric prom looks...

I absolutely love this look! She slayed it!!

Another fabulous look!

I wish I did this for my prom :(

It is great to see young people embracing their African culture and roots. I also love that more are now recognizing that African fashion does not have to stay within a niche market but rather can me a mainstream fashion style for everyday wear and  special functions.

Lets hope this movement continues to grow and African fashion styles becomes a normal style choice during the prom season.
