Black Business Month was founded in 2004 in response to the under representation and acknowledgement of Black business owners. It’s a direct call to give both longstanding and emerging business owners their flowers, taking the month to make a conscious effort in supporting Black-owned companies and boost sales. With so many fashion-forward and innovative fashion brands offering up fun and unique pieces alongside classic staples you’ll never want to get rid of, it’s no challenge to find a handful of pieces, all designed by Black creatives, that you’ll want to add to your closet this month – and they’re brands you want to keep returning to for years to come.
Our favorite brands aren’t ones to disappoint, but this time around, there’s feels to be even more flare market. There’s going out tops with statement shoulder details, crochet maxi dresses you’ll be dying to pack for your next vacation, funky twists on classic button ups, and more. These designers and more have earned their rightful places in the forefront regardless of the month, but in any case, you don’t have to tell us twice to add these to the cart.
