From the boardroom to the dance floor and everywhere in between, we leave a little sprinkle of Black Girl Magic wherever we go. A part of what makes us naturally stand out is the confidence we carry in our walk. Whether we’re working the runway, walking down the sidewalk in a fly outfit, or dominating the stage, there’s nothing quite like being in the presence of a confident Black woman on the move.

As we continue to celebrate everything that makes our style unique in anticipation for the 2018 ESSENCE Street Style Festival, scroll through to join us in paying homage to the way we strut our stuff.
