No doubt, 2017 was a great year in the fashion industry! Thanks to the creative designers who experimented with different kinds of African prints to showcase Africa to the world.
The possibilities of Ankara prints is endless. We have seen the versatility of the fabric, how women are embracing and exploring more of their culture in terms of clothing. Let me brag boldly that Ankara prints are here to stay! It will be in our faces from local designers who have carved their niche using this texture/fabric and international brands who are exploring the shores of African prints. Did you see Stella McCartney’s SS18 collection?
Anyways, slowly and surely the year is running so far, we are loving these pieces and it’s definitely worth it. From sexy backless dresses to chic casual outfits, these pieces should tickle your fancy.
Look 1: Backless floor length dress
Don’t even rack your head so much, this piece is definitely an eye-turner for formal events. I mean dinners or a get together with the creme-de-la-creme. That is if you don’t want to be “English” about your choice of outfits.
Look 2: A mini dress with the sheer layer
This is quite new but pleasant to the eyes. I can’t wait for fashion events to unfold all the hidden mysteries designers have to show off. First, some people started this trend with pants-in-sheer and got quite a lot of attention and now, the dresses are having it!
Look 3: Chic, edgy & sophisticated.
What better way to start off this year looking like a bag of money. There’s is definitely every need to look good, dress smart etc. A sophisticated top/pants is a good start.
Look 4: Casual chic & stylish
Everyone needs an Ankara Kimono in her closet! Start off your new year week looking redefined in an Ankara kimono, and slim fit jeans whichever you choose. It’s a life saver..lol, ever heard of when in doubt, put on a kimono?
Look 5: The power sleeve
It was love at first sight with this outfit! I loved the puff sleeves which gave the look such avantgarde personality! This is what you should look out for in 2018. Say no to mediocre outfits and tailors that don’t make you look sophisticated.
Look 6: A retro type of two-piece
For once, this look gave me a redefined retro look and i loved it! The two-piece outfit doesn’t have to be dresses or jumpsuits but play around with other types of styles. More importantly, the peplum details gave it all the “oomph” it needed for that classy woman!
