I Mixed My African Print Fabric And I Loved It!

Mixing African prints or Ankara prints as you may know it has been my pastime. Like I blogged earlier last week about tips on mixing prints, I followed the principles and guess what I got the perfect combo!

My Ankara jacket has similar colour with my shorts so, I decided to match it with my black body suit top and voila it came out really nice.

Take a look!

How To Mix Ankara Prints So Easily!

Mixing Ankara prints is something I have come to love. Although many are still trying to get it right, I can say reluctantly that it’s that easy to mix Ankara prints.

To get it right, here are few ideas to consider;

  1. Consider the colours before you match. E.g. If you have a blue themed Ankara print, think about the colours that can match blue. Colours like grey, yellow, red. 
  2. Patterns can be quite confusing so deal with the basics. Things like a big floral patterns would match with small floral patterns.
  3. Let your desired style be simple and chic: It would be better to sew a two-piece with different Ankara print than trying to “patch” a dress with another print (it could work but it may not turn out well).

Let’s see how these fashionistas are bringing their A-game with the mixed prints!

EASTER INSPIRED!

Happy Easter Holidays!! How is the hols coming along for ya??–I’m excited!! So..some few years back I traveled to Accra,Ghana (in West Africa) and I had the opportunity to visit their local market (Mokola) which was so much fun and I thought it best to shop for Ghanaian prints. Well, I was inspired by the meaning of Easter (Resurrection of Christ) to come up with this combo. The bright colored top signifies bright light and the print patterns signifies the different parts of the world!…I was a bit agitated about the combo.. Id like to know what you think!
