Ah! African print! How much do I adore thee? Let me count the ways! Not to state the obvious, but the name of this blog has “afro” in it, thereby speaking to some level of affiliation to all things African, right? Well, I am proudly African, and embrace all the dynamic aspects of my African culture. I might, therefore, be a tad biased in regards to African print (lol). The bold prints. The vibrant colors. The “look at me I have arrived” attention grabbing vibe, emitted while decked out in African print. The “I am here to stand out from the crowd” stance. The “I came to turn heads” energy exuded. Donning African print allows for all the aforementioned. I am here for all that and a yard of Holland wax fabric! Let the crowd say “slay on!”
Herein comes this showstopper of an outfit. I mean, do I really have to explain the phenomenon that it is? Off-shoulder, ruffles and a jumpsuit all in one? Yes, please! I introduce to you the Alexis jumpsuit. Who is responsible for this creative masterpiece? Show thyself! Well, l actually know who is (lol). Dramatic much? Melange Mode is the game-changing mastermind behind this stunning jumpsuit. Use of the adjective ‘talented’ would be a gross understatement. Melange Mode is a creative genius! The fit is beyond perfect. It’s meant to be a loose fitting design that just oozes sophistication. I typically wear a size 6/8 so this was a perfect fit. Bear in mind that Melange Mode offers the option of custom orders.
I’m pretty tall at 5’8; therefore, it’s typically difficult to find pants that are long enough. I’m pleased to report that was not a struggle I faced with this jumpsuit! It’s long enough that it completely covered my feet, even in 4.5-inch heels. Can you say, winner! Also of note, the jumpsuit is made of high-quality fabric that will not be compromised when washed/cleaned. The fabric is breathable and can be worn in even the highest of summer temperatures. FYI I’m based in the furnace known in Texas, I believe I can speak on sweltering heat related matters. *chuckle*
I chose to cinch the waist with a silver metallic belt, for an extra dose of spice. I kept my accessories simple, opting only for a classic gold watch. The outfit already speaks for itself, therefore there was no need for excessive jewelry. I completed the look with a black leather bag with gold accents. Yes, I combined silver and gold, sue me! (Lol). For footwear, I opted for a pair of skin tone hued heels, that I had previously written about here.
This is an uber classy look that I can see myself wearing for many seasons to come. The jumpsuit is a versatile piece that can be worn to all manner of events. Out to lunch or brunch with friends. Paint the town colorful on a laid back evening out with your beau. While on a tropical vacation, throw on a pair of sandals and you’re ready for a fun evening look. I could go on and on…
