Stunning! These Ankara Gele Styles Are Nothing Like Your Grandma’s

There’s something about African Prints that is just so irresistible. No matter how many prints you already have, you never have enough if you’re like the average African woman. One of my favourite things about African prints or Ankara is its versatility and texture. This versatility and its exoticness are part of the reasons they make a great headwrap or gele like it’s popularly called in Nigeria.

The Ankara gele is an in-thing right now and it’s easy to see why. Asides from its cultural symbolism, the texture of the fabric, unlike damask and aso oke, is softer and easier to deal with.

Another interesting thing about the Ankara gele is that you can mix and match the scarf with any type of outfit – and that’s that versatility factor again. There are lots of creative Ankara gele styles out there but for the purpose of a do-it-yourself approach, we are sharing simple yet sophisticated inspirations that wouldn’t have you roaming the streets looking for a professional.

What’s more? These Ankara gele styles are very contemporary, celebrity-approved and nothing like your mom’s or grandma’s.

Here are 8 Ankara gele styles that you can tie yourself…
