Have you guys seen Janet Jackson’s new music video, “Made for Now”? It is filled with such beautiful Ankara fashions and accessories. Even though Summer is drawing to a close, there is still time to get out and slay!
I have long been a fan of mixing prints and decided to do a print on print Ankara mash-up inspired by this video. I’ve had this maxi dress sitting in the back of my closet for years now and decided to pull it out. This dress was custom made for me in Nigeria, and when it first arrived it would not go over my hips. But I was happy when I pulled it out recently and it actually zipped up, won’t he do it?
The key to mixing prints for me is to pull a color that appears in both prints. The green in both the dress and turban jumped out to me, and I loved how everything worked together. Have you all dabbled in print-mixing?
I wore this look to dinner but switch out the shoes and it can be worn to a festival or day party!
