Velvet Dresses

In the Igbo language, “akwa oche,” as it is frequently called, is understood to mean ‘furniture fabric’. The velvet fabric of this dress is renowned for being incredibly calming, shimmering, and bright. Velvet dresses gained popularity in the 1960s and 1980s. Because of their silky, fuzzy texture, furniture producers started using them to build furniture in the 1990s. Many women have since moved away from this fabric, but now, some brave women are beginning to appreciate this long-gilded classic.

Vintage Style Ankara Dress

Many African-inspired styles from the past were either blatantly traditional or overly corny. Although most of us in the modern world find these designs uncomfortable, we yet like their African aesthetics and desire to wear them the retro way.

The Fit and Flare Dress

Most body shapes are enhanced by the fit and flare dress since it balances out my top and bottom halves. As you can see, especially for tall ladies with a thin frame and a larger breast. Thus, a feminine and larger form is brilliantly highlighted by this fit and flare dress design. However, if your profile is primarily straight, fit and flare dresses might assist you in giving the appearance of having some curves. What a fantastic trick! Fit and flares are a timeless and elegant style.

Pleated Skirt with Crop Tops

Consider how much I adore midi skirts. Well, this pleated skirt is flattering and comes in a ton of colors. I would have also worn this with a fitting long-sleeved turtleneck and maybe some black shoes, but the best way is to pair it up with a crop top or a strap tank top because it was rather hot that day. With the midi + crop top, you can’t go wrong. I GUARANTEE YOU.
