Hi my lovelies,
Welcome to August! Sometimes ago I did a post HERE on Staples that we should have when it comes to native wears in our wardrobe/closet. I mentioned Ankara tops and Ankara bottoms( skirts, shorts or trouser pants) as essentials for that casual chic look to work on Fridays, market or saloon ‘runs’ on Saturday or just when you want to hang out with the girls or family.
I also made a post of Ankara tops on denim HERE with pictures of gorgeous ladies rocking the ever green Ankara fabric on the ever reliable denim pants.
In today’s post I will be showing us how we can rock Ankara bottoms with casual tops for our not so formal event and for the casual chic Friday look to work as we say TGIF baby😊.
We can use the Ankara fabric to make maxi skirts, pallazo pants, shorts, pencil skirts or fitted pants which can match all kinds/colors of casual tops because of the versatile nature of the print fabric.
Here are some trendy yet affordable styles you can make with the Ankara fabric to add some ‘spice’ to your closet.
Don’t forget we stock best of quality Ankara prints in super gorgeous colors at best rates available in 3 yards and 6yards as well as for aso-ebi quantity.

Do have a fruitful week.
Its still February and we are still celebrating Love, which is why we are bringing back one of our old but inspiring series tagged ‘Love looks like us’ where we showcase beautiful couples in outstanding traditional wedding outfits from different parts of Nigeria and across Africa to help intending couples make decisions on how their outfits will compliment each other .
Also it will help in coordination of colors, fabrics and style in order to become the cynosure of all eyes on their own big day.
My best part is the display/expression of love between the couple in pictures, you can literarily feel the emotions ,bond and above all the fire of love burning!
Let’s see some love birds in their lovely outfits :
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.
