Meet the Kings and Queens of Afropunk Street Style

Afropunk street style just somehow keeps getting better. The Brooklyn edition of the Afropunk Festival got underway Saturday with sets by Kaytranada, Miguel, Jessie Reyez, and Lion Babe, with Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae, and Tyler, the Creator still to come on Sunday. But the real show wasn't on stage—it was in the audience, where fans turned out in their most impressive festival ensembles that make Coachella look positively tame. With the peace and festive love all around Commodore Barry Park in Brooklyn's Fort Greene neighborhood, Afropunk invites its attendees to create a space of body-positivity, and that apparently extends to its fashion. As the last major New York festival of the summer, it closes out the season on a high note. See all the best looks—and the many crowns—from the 2017 Afropunk Festival street style, here.
