Traditional Style we like: Zambia


today i decided to give you a taste of Zambian style.  These are pictures of a good friend of mine who has always been stylish regardless of what she is wears.  Her hair..her makeup and everything on point. 

My friend is Lozi so these are are pictures of an African attire.  The traditional Lozi dress called the MUSISI.  The bold colors are just beautiful.

I just love this head dress

 Traditional Lozi dress for a wedding.  This is so unique..she was a bridesmaids on her brothers wedding were she wore a lovely Musisi.  The bride was dressed in a purple and white Musisi.  Preety!!

  3. Lovely outfits. I have been told the original floor length dresses were inspired by the crinolines worn by wives of settlers and missionaries who came to Zambia from the UK during the reign of Queen Victoria in the 1800's. The headgear is certainly not to do with the Victorian women , they wore bonnets : )
