  • 41 Natural Styles To Inspire Your Afropunk Hair Moment

    Even though it's technically a music festival, our favorite part of Afropunk is always the glam. There's no such thing as being overdressed or underdressed at the annual festival, held at Brooklyn's Commodore Barry Park. Anything goes, meaning that you'll see just about everything. Unicorn box braids? Check. Curls that defy gravity? Absolutely. And of course, you'll get your fair share of Afros in every curl pattern, height, and shape, too. Black Girl Magic is very real, duh.

  • 'Modest fashion is knowing that your body is yours'

    “American Beauty” is a new series in which Yahoo Lifestyle takes a virtual cross-country journey to discover what beauty means — reimagining the American flag through the diverse group of faces that make up the United States of America. For our first installment, we’re focusing on Muslim-American women, highlighting what makes this group unique while showcasing the common threads that bring us together. Historically, Muslim women have leaned toward pious fashion, many wearing a hijab that conceals their hair and various body parts because of their religious beliefs. However, there are multiple ways to uniquely wear a hijab, so while many in the Western world may find them a limitation on creativity, the reality is fashion has no limits when one has a unique perspective or imagination.The true expression of one’s identity in fashion lies in the idea of uniqueness; it doesn’t have one look, or style, or trend. One can dress modestly and and still be stylish — the two are not mutually exclusive, and it seems the fashion industry is finally beginning to catch on.This is certainly not the first time faith and fashion have intersected. Just this year, the Met Gala’s theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” explored the impact of religious art on fashion, tapping into the work of designers such as Dolce & Gabbana, Thom Browne and others who have used spiritual and religious references in their sartorial collections. As times have changed culturally and politically, fashion has as well. Culture is slowly catching up with the times and needs of Muslim women, largely due to influential hijabi bloggers who have used their platforms to normalize Muslim women embracing their style.From Dolce & Gabbana’s hijab and abaya line to H&M’s modest collection full of frills, pleats, and sass, designers for brands have begun to understand that fashion options are a necessity whether there are religious aspects or not. And more Muslim women are stepping up to show it is possible to both follow your faith and find fulfillment in fashion.Fashion bloggers such as Saufeeya Goodson, Habiba Da Silva, Dina Torkia, and Amena Khan have drawn hundreds of thousands of followers who tune in to their daily #OOTDs (outfit of the days), demonstrating that fashion is its own language and identity, and that anyone can experience it in their own way. Truly, that’s what fashion should be about — making honest self-expression work for you — however that looks and feels.Yahoo Lifestyle interviewed six Chicago Muslim women to discuss their personal connections to faith and fashion, as well as the misconceptions they face about their their identity while living and working in America.Photography: Jamie Berg for Yahoo LifestyleRead more on Muslim-American women in our American Beauty package:

  • 8 Fashion Photographers On Why Diversity Is Harder Than It Looks

    At every turn, the fashion industry's key players are using their social platforms to call out its biggest issues — racism, sexual harassment, body diversity — both on and off the catwalk. On top of ebbing interest in street style as an outlet for inspiration, it'd seem the art of documenting current trends, and the people who wear them, feels more dated than ever. After asking a group of street style photographers, from Tommy Ton to Melodie Jeng, a series of questions on the state of diversity in the industry, the imbalance between diversity on the runway and the streets, and just why we're all so angry, their answers highlight a problem that inspires a lot of tweets, but no real solutions.
