Naturally Fresh: 7 Hot Shirts and Accessories Inspired By Natural Hair

Article also on Black Girl with Long Hair!

The natural hair movement has inspired a lot of things -- from meetups and shows, to songs and sororities. Although some things may make you want to cringe, a lot of naturally-inspired creations will have you hunting down Etsy shops and pop-up botiques to get your hands on goods. But before you start scrambling for Pins on Pinterest and googling "natural hair accessories", check this short list out. It's a great launching pad for getting your feet wet in accessorizing your TWA, locs, coils, curls, and kinks.

Mind you, there are plenty of online shops and boutiques that sell natural hair apparel and accessories. These are just a few of my hand-picked favorites. Be sure to share yours in the comments!

Dynasmiles iPhone and Samsung Cases --

Created by incredibly talented graphic designer, illustrator, and owner of DNT Dynamite Designs Daveia Odoi, the Dynasmiles brand offers tech accessories, stationery, event invitation, and apparel all with a colorful flair. But can we talk about these cases though? Curls, coils, fros, and locs galore!

Kinky Chicks  Educated Natural Queen Slouchy Sweatshirt --

There are a lot of natural hair inspired sweatshirts ripe for the online picking, but the Educated Natural Queen slouchy sweatshirt from Kinky Chicks Lifestyle Apparel is my absolute favorite. Not only is the message self-affirming, but the print itself is a delightful nod back to the wonderfully funny Black sitcom many of us grew up on -- Martin. Enjoy, 80's and 90's kids.

Tees in the Trap Natural hair Made Me Poor Tee --

In the same way that there are tons of natural hair sweatshirts to choose from, there are infinitely more tee-shirts. The Natural Hair Made Me Poor tee, from the very tongue-in-cheek Tees In The Trap is a standout jab at us product junkies. I'd rock this shirt proudly, any day of the week (while out shopping for hair products, naturally).

Cotton Candy Playground Blend in for What Tote Bag --

The home of the official #BlendinforWhat?! campaign, supporting women in owning and defining beauty for ourselves. The handmade Blend in for What?! canvas bags are stylish, handmade, and a great way to make a statement.

The Wrap Life Electric Lady Head Wrap --

Temperatures are starting to drop (although LA is a bit on the late freight), and some of you ladies may be looking into protective styling to shield your tresses from the elements. Wraps from The Wrap Life are a great way to keep your hair protected while turning heads. My personal favorite design is the Electric Lady. Oh, and they show you how to wrap them too!

Toni Daley Earrings --

Featuring carved wooden designs, Toni Daley's earring collection is a natural's paradise. For the ladies that love big, bold earrings, there are designs like "Pick Yo Afro" and "Love My Hair". If you're not in to big earrings, there are more subtle stud designs to choose from. I love the "Africa" and "Princess" crown studs. You can also purchase the "Get Well Meechy" ribbon earrings, to support natural hair vlogger Meechy Monroe's expensive recovery from brain cancer. All profits from the sale of the "Get Well Meechy" earrings will be donated directly to Monroe's medical expenses.

Global Couture Locs and Lipstick Mug --
Have your morning coffee or sip some hot Teavana (#nokermit) from Global Couture's Locs & Lipstick ceramic mug. It is simple and chic, and also comes in a Curls & Lipstick option. This mug is the perfect subtle statement for ladies on the job (can't you just see this mug on your desk?) who can't always boldly express themselves and their love for natural hair.

These are just a few of the many, many clothes and accessories out there for ladies with natural hair. What are some of your favorites?
