Hope you are doing well Iya Ekos. Today I will like to share with you some contemporary fashion ideas made out of African fabrics and Prints.
I like to call this blog post AFROPOLITAN because it is modern, fresh and styles you can also find in some of your favourite high street stores. It is Afropolitan not because it was necessarily made in Africa but originated from Africa.
The Hi-LOW DRESS
I recently shared a hi-low skirt made from Ankara on our Facebook page and our dear followers couldn't get enough of the style. They loved it as much as I did. It was only natural for me to include this hi- low look into this post. I love it and I hope you do too.
RED BOTTOMS INSPIRED.
We all know how talented and famous Mr Christian Louboutin is. I absolutely love the idea of this red bottoms ankara inspired heels with transparent sides, the heels are very chic and would add a nice va va voom to any look.
LEATHER MEETS ANKARA
Love the pop of ankara fabric on this leather look. It is trendy.
I love date nights and there is no better way to show up than to show up sexy. Even though I do dress to express myself, I also love a little sexiness for my boo. This look is a perfect date night look. Well maybe not for the first date, at least get to know him a little so you don't look like you are trying too hard. Go on ladies, show some legs.
POLISHED & CLASSY
I recently saw the Vogue 73 questions with victoria Beckham and one fashion advise she gave was less is more. This look is a definition of less is more, it is sleek, polished and sophisticated. It will take you from day to night without even trying and with a flawless and simple make up like this, you can never be less than gorgeous.
A laid back look is all we need after working hard during the week. I love this jump suit made from ankara. It is a perfect laid back option.
ALL THINGS MIDI
You all know how obsessed I am with anything midi. It is on trend and will be around for a long time. A midi dress like this one is perfect on the job. Finish your look with a large tote or top handle to hold all your goodness.
You can also go midi in a sleek jacquard look skirt like this one. It will be perfect with a white shirt.
I love a sleek look with a statement necklace. An african inspired one like this one is perfect to glam up your look.
Wear your statement necklace with denim and look as chic
Every girl needs a fitted and well tailored dress. This one is good and will take your from desk to dinner. It is simply chic.
You can also rock the one with an oversized collar. It is simply fabulous
The shirt dress is so chic and this belted ones are spot on. Gorgeous.
Make your home bright and beautiful with this African inspired cushion look. I love them and will put them in my home.
