Ways to incorporate African-style dress into your wardrobe

African-print is the hottest thing in fashion right now and best of all, it’ll never go out of style. Here are a few ways to incorporate African fabrics into your everyday wear as well as dressing it up for formal occasions or at the office.

African Print Tops

Trip’s slit top is perfect for dressing both up and down. Add a blazer and slacks to go formal or simply wear with a denim skirt or your favourite pair of jeans for a casual day or evening out.

Our halter top is for super fun days in the sun and is an essential piece of casual wear. You could go full African print from head to toe or mix and match with items already in your closet. Rock an African headwrap with it to finish off your look.

African Print Skirts

Trip has both mini and midi and maxi wrap skirts available in different prints. The skirts are perfect paired with a solid tee or button down shirt, perfect for both casual or formal situations. And of course, the skirts do look great matched with our halter and slit tops and head wraps.


When it comes to accessories Trip has got you covered. To add the perfect finishing touch to any outfit we have purses; canvas, print and leather sling bags; beach and shopping bags; head wraps and genuine leather tie belts.
