Scrolling through our Instagram feeds we come across IT girls and trendsetters and it’s easy to see that when they don Ankara made outfits, they pull it off effortlessly. As a typical Naija girl, wearing Ankara made outfits is something that comes naturally to me and seeing as I have an okay tailor, I often rock my custom-made Ankara pieces the way I imagined it. However, there are many other women who find styling their Ankara or choosing the right Ankara trend to follow a big deal.
Styling an Ankara fabric is not as easy as it appears. The outfits that look effortless on these style influencers might look a bit off when worn by someone who’s trying to mimic the look. Rather than try to remake a particular look, you must first understand how that look was put together and if it would suit your body type. The secret to styling your Ankara well enough to be compared to your favourite style bloggers lie in…
1. Finding a good tailor…
Your tailor can make or mar your overall look. A good tailor goes a long way, trust me. Naturally, when your tailor is not at par with your vision they end up making a mockery of the style you’ve chosen to sew. It’s always best to seek out someone who is very good when it comes to their work or get a fab style from ready to wear Ankara brands.
Accessorising is such an important part of any dressing. Your earrings down to your shoes must perfectly complement your outfit! The fabric in itself, due to the numerous colors and patterns makes for easy styling so you could always match your accessories with the colors on the fabric.
