Everybody loves Ankara! And even though the wax print fabric did not originate in Africa, the vibrant prints have become a part of our cultural identity.

Each day, style stars, BellaStylistas and #AsoEbiBella Style Slayers, use different unique designs to show off the versatility of Ankara.

This new series is a celebration of Ankara – a fashion staple that remains a constant in our wardrobes, despite fashion’s revolving door of trends. Every week we will share the most fabulous styles we spot to celebrate the creativity of these stylish folk we feature, inspire your next look and for your viewing pleasure.

Simple and chic

Chic Ankara jumpsuits are not so conventional, it can either be dressed up or down. Whatever works for you is fine by us.

Nothing screams class like a mix and match of Ankara and check fabric. Nancy Isime added a more contemporary twist to her ensemble with the black and white check fabric.

PVC shoes and Ankara, a match made in heaven!


Do you recall when we mentioned that asymmetric necklines are a thing now? This look further reiterates our point. Her take on the  trend is totally refreshing.


Workwear inspiration


This look screams fun!


Another great take on work gear.


Keep it simple!

Accentuates your curves with a cute waist belt.


Off the shoulder dresses are here to stay


A tiered dress is a perfect way to look extra fancy. Take it up a notch with black court heels.

An ankara skirt is basically a wardrobe staple. Pair it with a deconstructed shirt, a white tee or t-shirt.


Thigh high slits are super sexy, killer shoes best suit this style.


In our last issue, Flavour came through looking dapper in an ankara suit, this week we could not keep our eyes off this look.
