African prints are still in vogue this summer! Kaela Kay has you covered with a great selection of African print outfits and they are just nothing short of gorgeous. Okay, so you guys all know that I write about every new collection they have because Kaela Kay is that good. I mean, I wouldn’t be blogging about the brand if I didn’t think they offered beautiful, high quality clothing. If you are looking for that perfect summer outfit for any occasion, look no further.
If you live in Toronto, you have every reason to be excited. It’s not easy to find an African fashion designer who really knows their stuff and does it well. I live in Kitchener and most times, I find myself just wishing that a designer would decide to relocate here from Toronto – either that or maybe this is a call for me to rise up to the task a launch a fashion line? LOL… Maybe, but that’s a topic for another day. If you would like to know more about designers close to you and be notified of new collections, make sure you sign up for my quarterly newsletter here. In return, you will receive a mini copy of my Bold Style Guide.
In the meanwhile, Kaela Kay is exceptional and the styles speak for themselves. While there are many superstars in this collection, my ultimate favourite has got to be the Aela Top which is a lovely backless piece in yellow and brown leopard print. Next, I would go for the Hadassah top and pants set with thin straps that can be worn straight or crossed – very creative. The top drapes into a cinched peplum around the waist over the shorts! For the dresses, I couldn’t help but notice the Ferai Sonna off-shoulder dress which is on-trend right now. These are my top picks and recommendations.
Want to know more or make a purchase? You can browse all the items at Kaela Kay’s online store here and let me know what you think. In the meantime, I would like to hear you say something about this collection because most designers go away unappreciated even in their own close communities. It is important to affirm local and upcoming designers in every way possible and at every stage of their expanding growth. This is why I am pretty excited about the African Fashion Week Toronto and the African Industry Awards coming up in August, which recognizes various individuals in Canada’s AfroCaribbean fashion community.
I’d like to engage you in a short conversation around this collection. It’s very easy to participate and will only take less than 5 minutes by leaving a comment at the end of this post. Tell me, which of the outfits below is your favourite and why? Second question is do you think they are reasonably priced?
