This weekend marked the tenth anniversary of NYC's Afropunk Fest and of all the festivals this year, it blew us away with its original street style. Boho fringe was nowhere to be found: instead, popular looks include nose piercings of all kinds, from delicate to statement-making, as well as Manic Panic hair, chokers, and lots of leather.
