From cute co-ords to dainty dresses, there are now more ways than ever to introduce a touch of African culture into your wardrobe! With so many places to purchase, we’re spoilt for choice, but Grass Fields in particular is one brand that’s totally killin’ it in the style game. Whatever your size, shape or style they’ve got you covered, so I put together a list of my top 10 African print pieces from their end of season sale (cause it really is hard to choose!)
1) Irisa African print mid-length dress
Best for: Flower girls 🌸🌸
If anyone else is obsessed with flowers, this dress is definitely the one for you. Featuring a bold floral print on a gorgeous orange background, Irisa is an absolute dream. There’s nothing I don’t love about this beauty- from her elegant Bardot neckline to her classy midi length (which is super tall-friendly), this is one piece you don’t want to miss out on! Grass Fields were kind enough to gift me this, but it’s still in stock in their end of season sale, so snap one up for yourself here.
2) Genevia African print maxi dress
Best for: Hungry Girls 🍩🍩
Perhaps it’s just the foodie in me talking (and also me being a teeny bit weird), but the pattern on this dress reminds me of donuts… in the best possible way. With her candyfloss-like colours she’s super feminine, but the front cutout detail adds a flirty twist- perfect for girly girls who like a bit of ‘ooh la la!’ Snap her up here if you fancy getting a lil’ sugar rush every time you look in the mirror!
3) Kohahu African print dress
Best for: ‘Make ’em stare’ girls 👀👀
Featuring balloon sleeves, a statement bow and a showstopping print, this is one dress that’s bound to make sure you turn heads at any occasion! With its bold primary colours and high-low hem, it combines modern and traditional seamlessly… without missing out on comfort. Grab it here before it flies off the shelves… ooh, and don’t forget to finish off with a slick of red lipstick for a bold, bright and beautiful style statement!
4) Joasia Crop Top and Maxi Skirt
Best for: Colour lovers 🌈🌈
Tired of co-ords in broderie anglaise and chiffon? Meet Joasia: the on-trend co-ord with a mixture of African flavours! With her killer pattern combo, she’s perfect for ladies who can’t get enough of colour… not to mention you can mix and match both pieces for endless outfit options! Each piece is sold separately but they’re both on sale currently, so whether you get the one or both, it’ll be a total style steal! Check them out here and here ASAP to make sure you don’t miss out.
5) Eria African print maxi dress
Best for: Autumn lovers🍂🍂
It may still officially be summer (just!), but autumn’s just round the corner and it’s never too early to start thinking about transitional season styling! This dress is actually part of Grass Fields’ current season collection, but something about the colours is servin’ all the autumnal vibes too! If like me you love autumn but can’t wait till next year to launch your bargain buys, Eria might just be the girl for you! Pair her with closed toe courts and a cardi in a contrasting hue as the temperatures drop.
6) Malvina African print co-ord
Best for: Long-legged ladies 🦵🏾🦵🏾
For my legions of long-legged ladies (yes, I know you’re out there), don’t worry- there’s something for you too! If like me you’re ‘blessed’ with long legs and a super short torso (it’s a blessing until you’re jean shopping anyway…), then Malvina is such a godsend. Featuring 45 inches of length in a pretty floral print, she’s a floor-sweeping stunner, but her thigh slit means you don’t have to miss out on showing off your best feature! That’s not all though: there’s also a matching elasticated crop top, which will stretch or snap back to fit your proportions perfectly- talk about style and substance! Buy both pieces here and here (or cry later when they’re sold out!)
7) Neresa African print shorts
Best for: Petite Girls 🩳🩳
They say good things come in small packages (all my petite sisters, say ‘amen’) and luckily for you, that doesn’t exclude these super cute shorts! At just 15 inches long, they’re perfectly tailored to your petite frame, plus, like many of Grass Fields’ pieces, they’re part of the ‘it has pockets’ gang (yaaaaaaaay!) They did come with a matching top which is now sold out, but you can pair ’em with a t-shirt for a cute, casual look or mix and match with your favourite African print top. Get the shorts here now and figure out your styling options later!
8) Nele African print dress
Best for: Big girls 💁💁
If you’re looking for cultural clothing that’ll flatter your curves, look no further than Nele! With her off-the-shoulder neckline and ruffle detailing, she’s such a pretty lady, plus her loose fit and elasticated detailing will keep you super comfy too! Wear her free and flowing for effortless style, or add a belt to cinch in your wast for instant ‘va va voom’. Good news- she’s still available in quite a few bigger sizes, so catch her while you can here!
9) Daraja African print jumpsuit
Best for: ‘Skirts ain’t for me’ girls 👖👖
Love being feminine but not about that dress and skirt life? The Daraja jumpsuit was totally made for you! Featuring a wide leg cut with a plunging, off-the-shoulder neckline, she’s the perfect balance girl formal and feminine… without being overly girly. Pair with neutrals for a casual, understated look or add a slick of red lipstick for the perfect day-to-night transition. Being such a darling, Daraja’s been super popular, but there are still a few sizes left- why not try your luck here?
10) Minata African print pants
Best for: Girl bosses 👔👔
Think African print is only for playtime? Think again, girl! With her high-waisted design and muted colourway, Minata’s ideal for making your catwalk debut down the office aisle! Grab her right here and pair with a crisp white blouse and a nude shoe and bag combo for boardroom-friendly style.
And there you have it- 10 super affordable African print pieces to suit whichever kind of woman you are! Leave a comment letting me know what your favourite piece was (and tag me on Instagram to show me how you styled it!)
