Paisley Kitenge


Just as some of us thought of hanging up our vitenge and dashiki printed outfits, wham! It makes a comeback with the likes of Bey and Breezy strutting the trend. I will admit, am rarely a fan kitenge. Not because it’s a print I have grown up seeing, nooo not at all! Not because I have seen families dress up in kitenge uniform from Father to fifth born, #guilty. The style has never grown on me, until recently.

So this outfit is styled with the paisley kitenge top and olive green hat that I picked up from the Pop Up Bongo event I blogged on a while ago. I went for these black tights on the bottom to give the look a casual-ish vibe while the nude heels to blend and give the look an effortless dress up feel. Did I succeed?

I won’t lie, I wouldn’t mind my whole family dressed in this print 😀 hmmm maybe I will be taking that back once Paul reads this post, ha.

    There is many things I have in common with the words in this article; " The style has never grown on me…." Coincidentally, i thought to myself this morning, passing by the road side Kitenge shop on Kibuli Road, I should try one out. 🙂

    Stumbling on this good read was quite relieving on a boring afternoon. I am a ‘closed in’ individual that never really notices anything, except for the "never grown on me" thing. 🙂
