Sudanese fashion includes a variety of styles, and it often features a mixture of influences from African and Middle Eastern fashion. Braids are popular in many African countries, but in Sudan it is more popular to wear your hair down and straightened. This model chose to wear her hair in box braids, rather than wearing it straightened. This style of clothing can be worn by married women and single women who want to look mature. This is a modern outfit that would usually be worn with high heels. Moreover, this outfit is typically worn to graduation and special events.
