Black Panther II, the highly anticipated sequel of Marvel's first black superhero, arrives in theaters this week, marking four years since the release of the original and two years after the passing of the film's lead, Chadwick Boseman.
During the original film's release, audiences showed up for the culture wearing Ankara print. This time, audiences will mimic the all-white attire seen on Wakandans in the film's trailer as a symbol of honor and remembrance.
These outfits are sure to spark your creativity if you're putting the finishing touches on your look or need more inspiration before nailing your attire for the showing.
You can't mention the premier without mentioning Lupita Nyong'o and her Balmain dress and crown. The award-winning actress looked breathtaking in a one-shoulder vision featuring cutouts throughout the top and skirt. And that hair! No doubt a tribute to the new aquatic landscape in the movie, she stepped out with a crown made of shells. Mirror a similar waist-cinching ensemble with a skirt and crop top that secures just below the ribs, then adds regalness in the Rye Crown Ruched Headband. While the starlet opted for invisible heels, we suggest kitten-heeled mules just in case you're stuck waiting for refreshments longer than anticipated.
Dress in comfortable classics for your trip down the movie aisle. Ballet flats are back in full effect for the fall. When paired alongside the Snowflake Ruched Headband, the two create a playful intersection of girlhood and the modern woman. As an easy hair solution that's both satin and sophisticated, there's little chance you'll miss any action on the silver screen from hair in your face. Smart add-ons like a chain link bag and ornate earrings take your off-the-shoulder outfit from "running around" to "running the show."
Set the tone for the evening by stepping out in a look that says more is more. Taking up space in voluminous silhouettes like Palazzo pants, billowy sleeves, with the addition of a pouch bag sends the memo you didn't simply arrive, you showed up. Azalea’s soft material wont pull or tug on hair whether you pile your tresses high into a Badu-inspired turban or, in consideration of the moviegoers behind you, tied neatly at the nape. As a headwrap beginner's best friend the ribbed texture makes achieving desired styles possible without missing any action from a trip to the bathroom to adjust.
Nothing says model off duty like relaxed joggers, tennis shoes, and pulled back hair. For all-night comfort, add a small baguette bag that tucks to the side so you're uninhibited when edge-of-your-seat action rises or while elbow-deep in popcorn. Between the freedom of a bare midriff from a cropped button down and the secure hold of the Anbe La Lune Scrunchie, even on the most abundant of styles, you might be inspired to fight crime after the credits roll, or at the least not miss your spin class the following morning.
