You’ll wonder how you never put this together before! 

Feature by Ashan-wa Aliogo


One of the many reasons I love Ankara besides the bright colors and patterns is its ability to turn any outfit from zero to a hundred real quick- especially when it’s a jacket!  However, the same reasons we love them could sometimes leave us wondering how to style them.

Not too worry, my loves! Here are some tips to help revive your inspiration. So pull out that Ankara jacket you’ve abandoned in your closet and start taking notes! Here are 3 important tips to help you.

Play off the color palette

Ankara prints usually do the job for us because they are designed with colors that complement one another! Don’t be scared to play off and use these colors that are featured in the print!

Neutrals are your bestie

Since your ankara jacket is already loud, why not tone it down it some neutrals? When all else fails, black, white and brown will never fail you. Hold on to them and hold on tight!

Go full out with prints on prints

Contrary to popular belief, you can rock different prints and patterns up and down! Yes, it’s a little more daring but it’s all about making them complement each other plus who doesn’t like turning heads? On your more daring days, take advantage of it and go all out!
