Ankara: Created and Styled by me

African prints known as Ankara or Dutch wax can never go out of style. You can turn things way up with African prints. I asked one of my friends that went to Nigeria 2014 November to buy me Ankara; I was very specific that I wanted Kiri Kiri Star pattern because Pan-African club girls in my school wanted to use African material in their fashion event March 2015. This pattern used to be the old days’ print and it’s only used when women go for their August meeting or when there is a cultural event going on that women have to dance in a group, they will tie the same Kiri Kiri Star wrapper in any color they choose; the most popular ones are the yellow ones. I was excited when my friend came back with the Ankara; it was six yards. The Pan-African fashion event did not hold again so the Ankara wasn’t used anymore, I have no idea what I was going to do with it, I met a tailor and she told me it will cost $120 to make the style I wanted. Omg! $120 just for one dress? This is a

Plaid: A closet must!

Plaids are a wardrobe essential. The prints are season-less because there are beautiful bright colored plaid prints one could wear in spring or summer. I particularly love plaid shirts especially when I tie them on my waist.  I paired my cute plaid shirt with a skater skirt, gray strappy heels, a gray clutch bag, and statement sunglass. I am totally in love with this posh ensemble!  I hope you love how I tucked the plaid shirt into the burgundy skater skirt. We all know that burgundy is one of the fall’s most sought-after hues. I consider plaid prints a “closet must.” What do you all think? Let me know in the comments.

Stripe X Denim

There is nothing more ubiquitous than having stripes in your wardrobe, whether horizontal, vertical, bold or tiny stripes  because they are a wardrobe power player. Stripes are versatile and easy to dress up no matter the personal style; it is the perfect silhouette to wear in any season. It literally works for everyone. I dressed it down by leaving my striped shirt untucked and incorporated it with a distressed denim, a pair of monochrome pump shoes, and a ball bag to keep the swag vibe going.  I just want to look casual to make my outfit look less intimidating without sacrificing any comfort. One can wear stripes in different ways. As long as it’s styled correctly you will look amazing in them.

Leopard Print: A better way to transition into Fall

I have been looking for a perfectly colored leopard print high-knee boots that have black in them and I finally found one at Shoedazzle . I have seen various leopard print colors like blue and black, dark red and black, orange and black, pink and black, bold and tiny pattern, and so on. This leopard color and the pattern was exactly what I have been looking for because the dark hues are directly tied in the leopard print. I paired my leopard boots with a short handcrafted body-con dress and a light tobacco colored wrap cozy coat for a perfect color pop to keep it balanced and to look retro without looking too busy. There is something different about leopard print that makes it look particularly versatile and I think every woman should have a shade of leopard in her closet.  I feel some instant dose of high-end glamor in this outfit, let me know your thoughts.
