Everyone loves Ankara fabrics… err, well everyone I know. Ankara fabric over the years has carved a niche for itself and risen above the wrapper. That one that our mothers used to tie and afterwards keep in their lefe boxes (you remember that red and black box abi). So yeah, Ankara has decided to leave the past behind and get into the 21st century like every other good thing.
There are several ways to rock a statement piece with different accessories; necklaces, wrist watches, rings… but for now, let’s stick with Ankara pieces. Ankara is loved because it’s versatile and not limited to gender, age, personality etc. Anyone can wear Ankara.
You can make different fascinating styles with Ankara fabric.
Here are 8 fabulous ways to stun in a statement Ankara piece:
Look gorgeous in a Jumpsuit
Jumpsuits give me joy. They are so simple and chic; like always if you’re looking to go bold, it can be achieved by blending with a mix of Ankara prints.
As a Top
You can rock this in a whole number of ways; With jeans, a midi skirt, pants, high waist skirt etc
As a Blazer
Step out in a unique Ankara blazer or jackets. This look is classy and chic.
Rock as a Tie
Nothing screams stylish and unique like this. Rock Ankara as a necktie, bow tie or simply as an ascot. While not visit Forge Alkebulan for lovely ties, check the Twitter handle @forgealkebulan, Instagram page @forgealkebulan, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to get beautiful ties.
As a Midi Skirt
Whether as a pencil skirt, high waist skirt, fitted or flared; midi Ankara skirts are just as fab and stylish. To complete the look, pair with any simple pretty top of your choice.
Beautiful in a Midi Gown
Just like the midi skirt, Ankara midi gowns gives you a chic, fun vibe that you can rock anytime and anywhere.
Slay effortlessly in an Ankara neck-piece
Stand out with an Ankara neck piece. It makes your outfit look lively and stylish all at once.
Then my favourite of the lot, wow with a head wrap
Ever find yourself tired of spotting the same hairdo but don’t feel like making your hair? Or you’re just having a bad hair day? Like earlier stated the Ankara has evolved is not just for wrapper tying; now you get to also have fun with a headgear while covering that untidy hair. Can you say killing two birds with one stone?
