We Found The Best Street Style Looks From This Year’s Afropunk

“I’m calling this one ‘Carol Brady ratchet realness’”

by Hafeezah Nazim

From gold body foil to fish sandals (no, really), this year’s Afropunk festival saw some of the most inventive outfits of the festival season. NYLON web editor Taylor Bryant got up close and personal with some of these fashion killers and found out what inspired their looks.

“I feel like black women are literally gold,” says Afropunk-goer (and gold body foil-wearer) Erin McLin. “So that’s what made me inspired to do this, just to be golden and fierce and black and eccentric—just everything!”

Get inspired by the looks in the video, above.
