Prints are never going to go out of style and are a great way to incorporate them into your wardrobe is to use African prints. Here are a number of ways to rock Africa fabric (also know as “ankara” “kente” or “dutch wax” depending on the region) easily with items already in your clothing collection. Feel free to go head to toe if you’re really feeling it.
Think crop tops, peplum tops, boxy cuts and even blazers! Just wear with a black pencil skirt or your favourite pair of boyfriend jeans for a quick evening outfit.
Pair a flared, mini, skater, midi or maxi skirt in an African print with a solid tee or button down shirt and you’ve got yourself a perfect brunch, or date outfit.
Similar to skirts, pair African printed pants and shorts in cuts that flatter your shape with basic tops for casual wear that has an element of sophistication.
Turn things all the way up with a one piece African print jumpsuit or stick to two coordinating pieces for a stellar pant, skirt or short suit.
The options with dresses are endless – every style imaginable. A-line dresses work for almost all shapes, but the details (frills, patterns, embroidery etc) is what makes these dresses stand out from the crowd.
If you’re hesitant to wear African print all over, incorporate the style into your accessories with hats, bags, head wraps, shoes and jewellery fit for a queen.
