It’s officially that time of the year when you want to start wearing Fall colors, but you don’t want to leave out your Summer looks. There’s probably 10 more days before Fall hues start to become an official part of your identity! But there’s always one caveat to this rule: African Print! I don’t care what anyone says, but African Print works throughout the year. Since it’s a cultural print, no one can tell me, “This is too bright for the Fall!”
One brand that works on providing on trend African apparel is Grass-fields. What sets them apart from most vendors who sell African printed clothing is that Grass-fields spends time sourcing their best fabrics from Cameroon, Nigeria and Benin. How can you not support a brand that is supporting the economies in which they are authentically derived from? Grass-fields is also a brand that works wonders for plus size women because they go up to a size 4x! Although I love my seamstress but,Grass-fields is friendlier on the pockets. I always had a hard time looking for plus size African printed clothing. Ordering online can be a risk because you never know when you’re getting something from China– for some reason China’s 3x is like an American Large.
I got two items from Grass-fields just in case the sizing was off. But since they both fit, I wanted to start with the Ducos Dress. If Fall and Summer had a lovechild, the Ducos Dress would be it. It’s one of the most breathable dresses I own. Any anything that doesn’t require a girdle sounds like my type of dress!
Oh yeah, AND IT HAS POCKETS!!! SCORE!! So what do you think? What items can you see yourself purchasing?
This dress is sold out but make sure you visit Grass-fields for more options! Please tag me in any pictures wearing their pieces!!
Also a huge shout out to Jess! These images are to die for!!! Check her out if you’re in the Boston area!
