Tip: How To Wear a Dashiki

 A traditional African garb thats often tried, but not always worn properly in the states.The warmer months are on there way so why not try this out.

Note:
1. Don't try to wear a full dashiki gown and expect it to flatter your body.
2. Play with the look a bit and put on some beads or bangles. 
3. Try to buy authentic if possible. The colors and patterns will be most true and look natural. Go to a predominately black side of town and your sure to find a shop of two that sells them.

I've never thought of wanting one of them but I love the prints that are on dashiki's. I've seen it and never looked back but know I think I want one.
