I traveled in Cameroun. My advice is to be modest. Non-African women already stand out so don’t make yourself obvious. Stick to tops with cap sleeves and a reasonable cleavage line; stay away from short shorts and miniskirts. Research the religious influences of the regions you’re visiting – areas where Western religion is the norm are more apt to accept Western-style dress, but the Muslim areas are less forgiving. Modesty is the key.
