So, its now very easy for women to be very much fashionable, with the affordability and availability of their clothes, the variety of designers whether there or here, you would assume that every woman would be fashionable or infact somewhat stylish.
But, i’ve learned to differ, as these things only make women very much lazy when it comes to acquisition of unique attire or style, especially with the ankara trend. I love ankara, it obviates a love for everything afrocentric, but for some reason women seem to use these beautiful fabrics to do seemingly fashionable pieces, but no stand out pieces.
So if you’re interested in rocking ankara but rocking it with a difference, here’s a few items you should acquire;
• CUTE SHORTS: People have assumed that when it comes to African fabric whatever you use it for has to be something ceremonial i.e. something you can’t really wear on achillout day but more for a wedding or a fabulous event. But true patriotism only comes when you can rock our fabric even in the simplest of manners, even in your everyday life. So why not make a pair of cute shorts which you can pair with blouses, shirts, cardis or what not and rock ‘em on your day or even night out with the girls or a luncheon of sorts, or to the beach and so on, and enjoy the fabric to the fullest.
HAREM: Harems haven’t been totally accepted for some reason but I think they are absolutely gorgeous and especially when made in our ethnic material even better,so try to make or even buy em, they are comfort food for the edgy African fashion patriot.
• ACCESSORIES: Ituen is one of my favourite people to do this and I totally Loves It, every African woman should have some African material accessories ranging from necklaces to bracelets, to headbands and what not, every African woman should have one or if possibly more of the above.
