Cardi B ” I Like It ” Music Video Look For Less

I enjoy taking it back to the roots and acknowledging where styles originate from. Cardi B dropped a music video today for the song I Like It from her smashing album, Invasion of Privacy. She wore several looks in the video including this Marc Jacobs SS18 beaded top and a $695 turban paired with a yellow custom Alejandro Collection high low skirt and strutted in $995 Christian Louboutin Botticella Alta peep-toe heels. Beaded tops and turbans derive from African cultures so it’s only right that I show you a few other places to shop a look similar to this one at pocket-friendly prices.

You can get Cardi B’s I Like It  music video look for less by going for this $22 slightly metallic yellow Nasty Gal skirt and pair it with a green lace bralette layered with a $75 Topshop crochet beaded vest and a $55.00 Asos satin platform sandal. The best part is these earrings are on sale for $3 right now! No need to spend about $700 on a turban especially since you would pay less than 10% of that amount for a turban from any African country (which is where it derives from). This turban is $14 at Etsy!

Because I’m Nigerian, I grew up wearing beads in a variety of styles, mostly as an accessory but it can also be worn as a layering top. Beads isn’t just a Nigerian style as it originates from all over the continent of Africa.

Virginia based Nigerian hairstylist and accessory designer, Ugo creates beautifully beaded neck pieces for just $60. Braids and Styles by Ugo ships worldwide.

Lunto Accessories is a South African based company that only ships nationwide, yet the beads are beautiful.

L Impressions Jewelry does not only create beaded neck pieces but also turbans and a variety of other accessories. Unfortunately, L Impressions only ships in Nigeria.

    The high and lows is so beautiful that you will not believe that it is a look alike. The colors are sharp and the thread is neatly done. In my country Nigeria, you can wear beads on the hip. It gives sexy waves when walking and shakes with the sound of the music while dancing. God bless you Oyin. Amen
