Durags: The Most Evolutionary Fashion Headpiece For Men

Durags, originally worn by men on the coasts of Africa to maintain hairstyles from becoming frizzy like waves and braids have so much evolved as a top-notch fashion accessory all over the world, no longer restricted to use by African males.

Dated back to the 1990s and the 2000s, Durags came into the limelight of fashion as they were used by music icons and were most popular in the hip-hop communities to symbolize urban and street style trends. Popularised by the top music icons of those times, Durags gained attention through many public and music videos, thus marking the real beginning of the durag trend in the fashion scene.

The global fashion scene has so far adopted this type of fashion style and has incorporated it into diverse wear as it fits naturally into corporate, casual, and traditional. be it runways at major fashion shows, drugs have been paired exhaustively with many streetwear and high-fashion outfits to further show how adaptable and all-around it goes to make its wearer stand out in the darkest crowd.

Moreover, durags have taken on a stand on cultural significance beyond fashion as they are now seen as an identity of black pride and cultural belonging and are often worn to support movements that advocate for racial equality and justice.

Today, you can see that wearing durags does not solely mean fashion but also belonging and they are aesthetically pleasant as they come in monochrome, vintage, and even intricate designs that speak volumes about the journey of the most evolutionary fashion headpiece, Durags
