23 Street-Style Stunners That Prove Afropunk Is Mind-Blowing

Quietly, in Commodore Barry Park, Afropunk Fest has been consistently upping its game, year over year, to be the alternative-music festival of Brooklyn. Built on the concepts of equality and inclusiveness, emphasizing diversity, and encouraging its visitors to come dressed to the nines, the crew that heads over to Afropunk tends to be the coolest, and the music featured is always cutting edge but also expertly picked. In short: It is really one of the best musical experiences of the summer in New York, which is saying a whole heckuva lot.

Honestly, we had a hard time finding the best street-style photos for Afropunk, because we actually wanted to take a photo of every, single person inside of the park. (Yes, it was that good.) So we edited it down to some of the most killer, stunning, and inspirational beauty and fashion we've seen pretty much, well, ever.

Everything about this look is on point: The braids, the paint-splattered overalls, oversized sunnies, pink watch, purple lip, and that bag. GIMME!
