Brooklyn was on fire this weekend!
While celebs were twirling and twerking at the MTV Video Music Awards, everyday people were getting their life at this year’s Afropunk Festival, held at Commodore Barry Park.
The Fashion Bomb was on the scene, and took the following street style snaps for your viewing pleasure.
Take a look:
A gorgeous crown of locks topped this eclectic ensemble, comprised of a printed one piece and a vintage floor length jacket.
It wouldn’t be the Afropunk festival without the Afros! This street style subject showed off her mane, then flexed her toned tummy in an abbreviated top, balanced out by roomy pants and a vintage bomber jacket.
Afros come in various forms. This young lady popped her tufted tendrils under a red cap, and opted for simplicity in a white shirt dress and clear heels.
Another glorious Afro! A destroyed white sweater, matching shorts, chic shades, and a TWA completed this casual look.
Eli Pryor aka KingKidLove made a splash in a high top fade, red pants, and a vintage Versace button down.
It was all about the statement shirt! Purple pants and a gold chain added extra flair to this attendee’s eye catching aesthetic.
A top hat and polka dotted shoes added verve to a black v neck and cuffed jeans.
A crown of sunflowers adorned this young lady’s braided hairstyle, while crochet and tough boots mixed fashion with function.
This young man paid homage to the mother land in overalls and a medallion emblazoned with the African continent.
The 90’s were in full effect with cropped tops, high waisted skirts, shoes with ankle socks, and bunned braided coiffes.
Another ode to the 90’s! A side braided style and a Bart Simpson printed romper were apt tributes to the earlier era.
A marijuana leaf two piece was this concert goer’s choice for the day.
Calling Grace Jones! This young lady channeled the edgily androgynous artist in all black, dark shades, and a sun blocking hat (with red lips for added emphasis).
There’s so much to love here, from the cartoon infused pants to the purple boots and rabbit ear shades. Do it!
A floral vest and matching pants? Yes please. A yellow bustier top toned the look down just a tad.
And men embraced floor grazing hems as well. I’m living for our last street style subject’s striped kaftan.
And that does it!
What do you think of these Afropunkers and their style?
