These Power Suits Prove The Versatility Of Ankara Prints

2018 came with plenty of new fashion trends, many of which we expect to spill over into 2019; one of which is the African print suit. From pantsuits to skirt suits and other structured suit looks, we saw 2018 building up this super stylish trend and we can already see the trigger get pulled by 2019.

But before you claim we didn’t prepare you enough, we’ve curated 7 African print suit looks to help you step fiercely into the trend. One thing that I find fascinating about the pant/skirt suit is the powerful vibe it gives. A well-dressed lady in either combination gives off some serious “working girl on her grown woman ish vibes” and what’s not to love about that?

Now that the power suits are back in full force, there’s no better way to celebrate your style and culture than to rock a power suit made with African print. And while we already knew that African prints are versatile, the power suit designs really nail the fact. Ready to test drive this look?

Here are 7 African print suits to inspire your SLAY…


What’s a power-suit without a bit of drama? The fringe detailing is what makes this look so bold and so fun!


A simple look only makes sense if the fabric used is gorgeous and the suit is form fitting. This look right here offers both perfectly.


For an unexpected yet ultra sexy work-look, a skirt suit is definitely the statement-making choice that you need.


Give yourself and the people around you something to talk about. A belted suit with flared pants would give you that hourglass silhouette every stylish woman love.


There’s no dressing down the African Print. The Ankara is a busy fabric and the best you can do is limit the accessories and allow the style to shine.


There’s no law against shortening things up. This kente look provides a short sleeve coat and a calve length pant. This might not be a classic version of a power suit but it’s certainly Rave-worthy.


Embrace a longer coat and a free-form skirt. It is a classic 60’s style. The result is still very polished even though the look is quite unexpected.
