Black Panther is out on 16 February in South Africa!
Now, you know that Black Panther isn’t just a movie: it’s a cultural and fashion event – so you need to make sure your outfit is on point.
The premiere was a splash of traditional African designs, patterns and prints and you can bet cinemas will be packed with fans in their finest African garb.
We’ve picked the best pieces that will have you slaying at your Black Panther screening
The perfect panther fit
Don’t be afraid to go over the top – the bolder the better. Black Panther’s costume designer Ruth E. Carter has not gone for minimalism in creating unforgettable looks for the cast, and neither should you. She was inspired by pan-African traditional garb, infusing pattern and prints used by tribes all over the continent.
Head to toe tribal or animal prints are what you’re going for and don’t be afraid to wear clashing patterns – that’s a look that always stands out.
