With street-style looks as fierce as the headliners, this year’s Afropunk music fest saw Joburgers (and visiting festival fans from all over) put on some incredible outfits. Afropunk is known for its excellent fashion, and the crowd delivered one stylish goodbye to 2017.

Why match your bag with your belt and/or shoes when you can grab your bestie and outfit coordinate? This African textile packs a punch with its bold tones and graphic print.

Cool and casual (and all the attitude to make their OOTD that much extra).

An all-black look with utility-inspired accents in the form of a leather waist bag and buckled sliders.

Embracing our South African heritage in fun Shweshwe.

A graphic cropped top + sporty moon bag + flatform sliders make for a look we’d like to call ‘normcore glam’.

This polished all-black look with gold accents makes us think of Gucci’s geek-chic SS16 collection.

This is evidence that OTT-statement shoes can be the superheroes of your OOTD.

Accessorised to perfection with Bohemian-inspired gold jewellery that makes us think of a warrior princess.

The new (and cooler) generation of reworked denim looks something like this.

Spotted: two items on our 2018 style wish list – chic leather loafers and a boldly striped cover-up.

We love how this ladylike ensemble, complete with a velvet dress and drop earrings, is juxtaposed with these sporty sandals.

Layering done right in the form of a turquoise polo neck jacket under a pair of chic dungarees.

Because twinsets are the new one-pieces. We love her head wrap and large-hooped earrings.

Crisp white done perfectly. Highlights are her Kurt Cobain-inspired sunnies and stylish side-stripe pants.

Ever since the ’80s-inspired anorak made a reappearance last year, we’ve been fans – especially when it’s oversized and has a sporty feel.

A slick athleisure-inspired look complete with a baseball cap and Supreme moon bag.

With an A+ for originality, this look with beaded fringing gives us all the feels.

Sheer elements will remain on our style radar this year.

We can just imagine the Boomerang one could nail with this look! From the print to the voluminous pants, this look is goals.

When you take athleisure and add different elements to it, like African-inspired fabric or subtle florals, this is what you get.

Never did we meet a graphic stripe that we didn’t like.

Why be a wallflower when you can stand out in juicy tones and punchy prints?

This queen-worthy headdress adds an exciting dynamic to this fun look.

A statement tee and mesh vest make for a winning bestie look.

When more is more – this is style magic.
