Trending Now: Angelina-Print Dashiki Fashion

Check out how girls and guys from the continent and diaspora are rocking Angelina-print dashikis styles this summer.

DIASPORA—Dashikis, specifically the Angelina-print dashiki, are enjoying a roaring resurgence this summer. This modern take on traditional West-African clothing is available in several colors and prints, however, the most famous style—by far—is the Angelina-print. This ornate and distinctive pattern looks gorgeous when applied to a traditional dashiki, however, fashion minded folks throughout the diaspora are also remixing this style staple in innovative new ways.


From blazers to bikinis, the Angelina-print is no longer only applied to loose fitting tops.

Check out how girls and guys from the continent are rocking Angelina-print dashikis—and beyond—with pride this summer.
