For The Love of Ankara

Fashion Outfits Style April 10, 2017 5 Comments

I have a love-hate relationship with Ankara (African print,). I love how colourful and vibrant Ankara fabric is but I have a phobia of delving too far out of my comfort zone when it comes to colour so Ankara is usually reserved for weddings and events in Nigeria. I rediscovered my love for Ankara about a month ago when I decided to rearrange my wardrobe. I randomly pulled out this Ankara dress which had been custom made for me a few years ago but had never seen the light of day. I have since dusted off the rest of my Ankara pieces and to be honest as spring is here, it is the perfect time to add come colour to my wardrobe.

It also had me thinking about an issue I wrote about a while ago that I finally decided to share on this blog. Despite designers using the women empowerment rhetoric as an accessory or a trend, it’s important to remember that feminism is not a trend and it is also important to examine the fashion industry and whether it could be considered anti-feminist.

It’s that time of the year again and as we know, its holiday/ party season so it’s safe to say that for the next few weeks, the dress code is strictly ‘festive’. Tis the season to buy an obscene amount of new dresses and not feel guilty about it because you know they will be put to good use. But, as we all know eating is as much a part of the festivities so here are my top picks of comfortable party dresses, complete with elasticated waists, flattering shapes and frills that are oh-so-giving and will take you from meal time to dance floor.
