Oh! Oh! You missed this month’s big screen announcement? “Black Panther” is coming back to a theatre near you. Yep. Character T’Challa — played by lead actor Chadwick Boseman — returns for a sequel either late 2019 or early 2020, according to a post by The Hollywood Reporter.

The landmark Marvel movie directed by Ryan Coogler grossed $700 million domestically and more than $1.3 billion across the globe. And boy did Black America, the Caribbean and Africans show up representing in their most modish Motherland garbs. I actually met Boseman while we both were vacationing in St. Lucia earlier summer 2018. Even off camera, he embodies African-American pride and is just as humble as his superhero character.

We at Black Beauty & Hair are so thrilled about the next installment that I had to compile the best African styles worthy of outfitting you beauties and beaus in for Black Panther’s homecoming:

D’Piper TwinsSisters, bloggers, models and African fashion designers Danielle and Chantelle Dwomoh-Piper developed bold, sexy African wear that has garnered celebrity and international attention. The twins’ hallmark styles comfortably combine fitted and flowy pieces that make you do a double take. Pictured are the twins voguing one of their signature two-piece sets.
