In a bid to understand Ankara styles more, I just got to know that it’s the capital of Republic of Turkey and the second largest city in Turkey after Istanbul. I would love to travel to this city just to know more about them.
I never knew. Well, no wonder, they say we learn everyday and traveling is encouraged.
Assuming you are like me, that whenever Ankara is mentioned, you think of African print and styles, come let’s take a selfie at the end of this post.
Well, notwithstanding Ankara is still widely known as African print even if it has a different meaning in another country or continent.
To every African, it is not just an African print. It’s our rich culture, our bragging right, our beautiful heritage and our pride. We love it like we love our food!!!
It’s a 100% cotton fabric with beautiful lively designs, no wonder it’s found everywhere in African homes and can be worn to every and any occasion, ranging from church events to traditional events to Weddings. Surely check our recommended posts at the end of this particular post for more.
Infact, any African occasion without Ankara or even a touch of Ankara and it’s rich styles isn’t regarded highly as an occasion especially amongst Africans. Most African occasions are places where you would be judged heavily on how well you look. you don’t want to be the one that will be looked downor forgotten easily just because you didn’t bring your A- game.
Ankara styles abound but outstanding beautiful Ankara styles are few. Like you literally have to think out of the box for Classy styles. Anything good thinking outside the box does in order to leave people you met at an event sending their tailors the style you wore to the event.
Well, worry no more for you can save any of these pictures to show your good tailor later. emphasis on good tailor, to avoid what I asked for versus what I got stories that touch the heart.
Sometimes, three-quarter styles can not be limited to only English wears. have you thought about recreating that non native wear you saw in shopping malls with Ankara material? well, here is your sign to do so today.
This style here should be a proof that what is good for you can be good for me too especially when slayed with the right pumps and bag. This style here can be “legitly” worn to any Occasion with super Queen carriage. This Combination right here is cool. I mean get creative a little, it wont hurt.
African Woman in all of its essence, from the afro-hair to the Ankara wear.
African culture is Rich *drops invisible mic* while y’all continue to argue with your keypads.
Even in a simple style, Ankara is beautiful and fashionable. Especially when sewn beautifully with Love.
Slayers with the banging bodies are not left out when it comes to Ankara. Think it! Sew it!
Can it be used as Accessory?
Like what Ankara can be used for isn’t limited .
If you haven’t thought of any of these styles before or even seen any before stumbling upon this post, then you are in the luck, see and think of them now!
Rush down to a bespoke tailor, show them any of these styles that got your attention and recreate them for that event. We are looking forward to tags on Zanaposh on instagram. We love tags to styles recreated from any of our posts. It encourages us to share more.
