Marvel Studios’ highly anticipated Black Panther hits the big screen on Friday February 16 and we’ve received a number of requests asking what to wear to show up and show out for the film’s premiere weekend.

Reader @iamashantii from Instagram writes, “In anticipation of the Black Panther movie release, do you plan to do a What To Wear Black Panther edition? I think it would be well received.”

For a casual chic look, dress up a graphic Black Panther tee with a leather embossed blazer and a pair of black high-waist skinny jeans.

Pull the look together with a pair of fringe embellished sandals, a canvas and brown snakeskin top-handle bag, gold bangles, and a pearl-embellished wide belt.

For your second wardrobe option, dress up a “Queen” slogan print t-shirt with a black velvet blazer and a pair of Stella Jean tribal print high-waist pants.

Add the finishing touch with an acrylic ark bag, black cutout suede booties, gold chandelier tassel earrings, and a stack of gold bangles.

Reader Kristina writes, “Hey, have you thought of doing a Black Panther/Movie Premiere kind of post? I’m going and I’m looking for some inspiration.”

Opt for bold animal prints in a jacquard print bodysuit styled with black jeans and a zebra print trench coat in a rich red clay hue.


To complete the look, add a few statement accessories with a fox head embellished leather handbag, cutout leather lace-up sandals, a gold tassel necklace, and beaded wood bracelets.

Lastly, keep it casual in a Melanin Apparel slogan print t-shirt, sleek black leather leggings, and a panther print satin bomber jacket.

Rock the look with a tribal print clutch, black ankle-strap sandals, gold horn pendant necklace, and thick gold hoop earrings for the final touch.

And that’s it! What will you wear to see the Black Panther?
