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!
