This is it! Black Panther, the film the culture and the diaspora has been waiting on is being released THIS WEEKEND. Everybody and the mama done bought tickets and this weekend, henceforth known as Wakanda Weekend, is about to be so lit. And if you haven't yet made plans to go see this movie, you need to get your whole life before Monday (because we all know us Brown folk cannot withhold spoilers, sorry not sorry.)
So, what are we wearing? Of course, leave it to the fashion girl to ask the question most of us would be asking an hour before going to the theatre. But this is a momentous occasion. A bomb movie based on an incredible kingly Marvel character with an amazing cast is being released on our holy month, you better be showing up in the building with a look to make you and the ancestors proud!
Here are a few tips to help you craft your perfect look for Black Panther.
Garb It Up
|This is the time to break out the seasonally appropriate garb you have. Make Wakanda and the diaspora proud in your prints and patterns.|
|Give traditional prints a 2018 makeover with modern elements or contemporary pieces.|

It's The Little Things
|African influences, no matter how small, will definitely wake up any look.|
Do You Boo-Boo
