Afro Boho | An Alternative Aesthetic Style

Afro Boho – For many years I was unconcerned and did not know what is my style. Until recently, when I decided to go through my clothes. That’s when I noticed that I had a color palette and an interesting clothing design that I was attracted to naturally.

About 80% of my clothing has color to them, design, embellishments, or texture. Even my choice of Jewelry set a statement. All I needed to do was put it all together. That’s when I started to research my style. Afro Boho is what it is.
