ASO-EBI INSPIRATION, THEASOEBIJUNKIE FABRICS, TREND ALERT

 ANKARA TOPS X DENIM

Hello everyone, 
Today we will be looking at one of the staples in our native wear wardrobe ANKARA TOPS as I shared sometime ago in this post HERE

The Ankara Top is a must have   for those divas and lovers of print that want to pull off that casual chic look to work on Fridays or that Saturday hangout and sometimes to church on Sundays. Best way to rock your Ankara top is to wear it on a denim pant with flats or heels depending on what is most comfortable and appropriate for the event or place. 

So today, I will be showing some really nice Ankara top designs that you can replicate or redesign to suit your body type and most importantly slay stylishly. 

Let’s the gorgeous prints that reflects our African heritage in our casual chic style :

What do you think about these tops? Share your thoughts in the comments section. 

P.S: our next post will be on Ankara sales post and this time we will be selling in    3yards and 6yards. So watch out and please follow the  blog so you can get our notification mail as soon as the post is published. 

Have a great week ahead.

THEASOEBIJUNKIE FABRICS

Native Wardrobe Staples

Through this blog I have discovered that some people do not know ‘jack’ about fabrics and their native wear wardrobe is as good as non- existing.

They wear blazers, suits,shirts, corporate dresses and pants to work during the week, tank tops and jeans on weekends. Am not just talking about people living abroad but there are people like that in Naija too.
Their first native wear might be their traditional outfit on their traditional wedding day or a very close family member Asoebi.
Some people have never even tied gele on their head before *lol*

And I think it is necessary to infuse our roots/heritage into our closets as African prints and African fabrics are taking over the contemporary fashion world.
That’s why I have compiled a small list of staples I think every African woman should have in their closets for that traditional look to work on Fridays or to worship service on Sunday as well as any event that you didn’t get their Asoebi but still want to rock and slay them elegantly.

ASO-EBI DIVA: KENNY

Hello all,

Am so happy to bring you another edition of the Aso-Ebi diva series once again.

The ‘Aso-Ebi diva’ series is a monthly series, where i pick a Fashionista/diva who is well involved in African fabrics/attires and show case their personal style for us all to explore.

 This month of August am featuring a very beautiful woman- KEHINDE BROWNE !

Kehinde was my classmate in school (Unilag), and even as at then she had an amazing sense of style which makes her exudes so much grace in all attires.

This ebony black beauty has a model-like sexy body. You know those kind of people you refer to as

‘slim shady’,’ lepa toh badt’ lol

I also noticed she has a huge flair for African fabrics/fashion which is why i just had to choose her for this post.

Kenny (she is a twin obviously), knows how to combine colors to match her ebony skin tone and makes black truly beautiful.

Her accessories are also always super gorgeous on all outfits; from exquisite necklaces to bracelets, rings, earrings etc.

 So, let me leave story and move on to the beautiful pictures of our elegant aso-ebi diva:
