Please tell me am not the only one who think this trending Angelina Print aka The Danshiki is a beautiful work of art.
I saw a picture of my cousin and her husband in this piece of clothing and i asked why she was wearing this oversized gown and she said “jokes on you, that is the trending style”. Funny enough, not until then did i notice how this piece of fashion clothing has been trending.
Yes, of course the Danshiki has been existing since the 1920s. Its a clothing line started by the Oba of the Yoruba land in Nigeria which had a dominace in West Africa, but its been under the radar for some time.
The Danshiki started trending again when the Nigeria Super Afro pop star Wizkid rocked the cloth in his Music Video “Show You The Money” and according to research the presense of danshikis grew by 80% after his video, so it safe to say he revived the clothing line and since then its been trending, not only in Nigeria or West Africa but the Whole World. Since Then we’ve seen some of the most famous celebrities wear the Danshiki, obviously its trending!
Although the Danshiki can be said to be of men’s fashion, but boy you need to see how lovely ladies are rocking this outfit. The beautiful part about the Danshiki is that it requires very little accessories because of its graphic design as well as it flashy colours.
In addition, it can be combined with almost anything, jeans, chinos and am sure if you are a creative person, you can find a way of rocking it with a skirt.
