This weekend, the annual Afropunk festival took over Brooklyn's Commodore Barry Park with a star lineup that included Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, and Kelis. Some of the eclectic, all-ages crowd went full-on punk for the event, but there were also plenty of sporty looks and a heavy dose of '70s influence. See the best style in our gallery, above.
