Wow number 4 is for "cooler" days! Where I live in California it gets pretty cold in the fall and winter and that is not a cali outfit for a cool day... Who writes this stuff??

Why do you say California specifically? I'm just curious, because people from other places wear these kind of clothes too.


Calm down cherri. The infamous print that women in West Africa wear is originally from Indonesia which went to hollandaise but it wasn't received well so it went to West Africa and it worked so in a way you can argue that these women are wearing Asian clothes. Remember the world belongs to all of us. The so called Caucasian style as you put it is a style that belongs to everyone. It either suits someone or no one. Let's not delve into language that segregates people instead of integrating people.

Like Vanessa Hudgens White maxi and there's some nice stuff in the mix

Is there an age limit to wearing crop tops and high-waisted shorts? You see everyone from Taylor Swift to JLo rock in that look?


I love these styles so much

I feel this is more white culture.. It's more Caucasian sense of style. I feel we should have a variety of styles n cultures from all races. Feel this is racist
