It’s Friday again! The perfect day to wear Ankara for work.
You’d agree with me that almost every Nigerian lady worth her salt has an Ankara outfit in the wardrobe. Gone are the days when Ankara was only used for bou-bou‘s or buba and wrapper.
Ankara is now considered a chic and exotic fabric which can be used to make different items of clothing; Designers have revamped our unique print into beautiful, flirty chic dresses, cute shorts, jackets, shoes, bags, clutch purses, and even stylish accessories!
Most of them are used to make conventional and classic styles for both the male and female gender. Even the international fashion scene have infused the use of Ankara print into their fashion collections, further driving home the fact that the Ankara Fabric is one of the most versatile prints in the world.
Another great thing about the Ankara print is that it can be combined with various print textures such as chiffon, taffeta, silk, satin, lace, cotton, suede etc. to make exquisite fashion statements
On Fridays in this part of the world, less formal dressing to work can be expected. From denim and branded t-shirts to national dress, we tend to ditch the suit and tie on the last official banking day of the week.
Ankara is commonly the preferred option for most of us on Fridays, and these days it’s used to sew more formal-looking styles that can pass in the office! Check out these awesome ways to wear your Ankara print at your job…
