Fashion: Summer Time Fine in Makeda Couture

Yaaayyy!!! Summer is officially here!

It is now time to bring out all my cute, colourful summer outfits and of course my African fashions. One of my favourite African fashion designers is the Georgetown, Guyana based brand Makeda Couture. Makeda is the place to find African inspired clothing, fabric, design concepts and culture. They have such a diverse selection of high quality and stylish African fashions that cater to both male and female clientele. They also offer a selections of beautiful African inspired accessories to compliment you outfit.

I have a few pieces by Makeda and this green striped dress is my absolute fave! I particularly love the unique striped detail over the African print. So of course, to start off my style looks for the summer I had to feature this beautiful dress.

Dress: Madeka
For this look I was styled by Afrofusion Squad member Stylist Keshia Charles. We wanted to keep this beautiful Makeda dress the focal point. Therefore, we accessorized with items that kept with the green theme as well as added colours that complimented the neon green stripes on the dress.

Jacket: Urban Behaviour / Shoes: Target
I've had this green lather jacket for the longest time and have only worn it once I have been waiting for an outfit it would compliment the best, and I finally found that with this Makeda dress. The deep green tone of the jacket provides a not contrast to the light green in the dress. For my footwear, we chose a pair of black booties with cute gold buckle accents.

Bag: Call it Spring
Furthermore, to add a pop of colour, we chose to pair it with a simple yellow purse with gold details. This worked great as yellow always compliments green well.

Watch: Winners / Bracelet: Winners / Ring: Aldo
For my accessories, we chose neutral pieces to balance things out. Therefore I wore white accessories with gold accents. We did however include a subtle touch of green with my ring.

Necklace: Coach
