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!
P.S: If you want similar Ankara Jackets with your fabric and you are in Nigeria, it costs N5,000. or indicate your interest on my Instagram page/Whatsapp
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;
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.
Patterns can be quite confusing so deal with the basics. Things like a big floral patterns would match with small floral patterns.
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!
