5 Fun Ankara Styles You Would Love

Hello, everyone, How are you all doing?

Is it just me that saves tones of ankara styles for the next time I go to the tailor? Well, I adore my ankara prints and would have far more in my collection if it hadn’t been for unfaithful tailors (I’m sure we’ve all heard horror stories about unfaithful Nigerian tailors). My blogger girlfriends, on the other hand, have been sporting those prints, so I just had to share. So here are five ankara styles to try on your next tailoring trip.



1. The jumpsuit
You all now I’m a huge advocate of one piece sets due to versatility but after much thought, a jumpsuit with our lovely African prints would just pop. I love how the bloggers below each incorporated a mix of two different patterns in their fits, I’ve got to try this some day.




2. A Cute Dress
When it comes to dresses the options are endless! One could opt for a shift dress like Cassie. You could rock the ever trending off-shoulder dress with detachable sleeves just like Larissa and her friend. Or a flared sleeve off shoulder skater dress option like Alma. And can we talk about wrap dresses! They are so flattering on all body types, you just have to find what works best for you. While Jennifer opted for a skater fit in her wrap dress, Chinju went for a more fitted look. Also, let us not forget the beauty of mixed prints like Agatha showed us or the beauty in simplicity as Alexandriah rocked a basic pencil dress with an English twist.
3. The Co-ord Set
The concept of a coordinated set appeals to me because it is so versatile. Both pieces may be worn independently and offer double print overload, which is ideal. Tuke’s ankara jacket and skater skirt have inspired me; I never thought of using ankara in this way. Larissa also looked great with bell bottom slacks and a flared sleeve crop top. Let’s not forget Larissa’s kimono and high waist shorts ensemble. I’m not a lover of shorts, but this outfit has me sold. I’m overjoyed since I’ve made contact with her tailor!
Tee also inspires us with an off-the-shoulder top, a flared skirt, and a bell sleeve combo; she knows her business, guys.
4. The Jacket
A good jacket can instantly transform one’s entire look. I just love how Agatha’s bomber jacket spiced up the basic denim and white t-shirt pairing. Also, Jennifer, who is the queen of ankara prints, nailed it with that bell sleeve jacket paired over a white jumpsuit. It doesn’t get more classic than that. You guys should check her out for more ankara looks.

5. The Wrap Blouse
Last but not least, there’s a simple wrap blouse. I’ve seen this in other prints, but the concept of trying it with African designs is so much more exciting. A striking sleeve, such as a bell or flared sleeve, would quickly lend drama to a wrap blouse.
