With Ankara, there’s no going wrong. Although some people with bad tailoring experiences may beg to differ, there’s a reason Ankara co-ords are back. Besides the fact that they are simply chic and trendy, they make all the styling work easy.

Rather than contemplate on what style to make, you can simply put on the already made piece. Sure, you can trust your tailor to make it for you, but some people would preferably purchase it, and could have it customised.
Ankara’s have evolved with the trend and we have all the inspiring fashion designers and stylists to thank for that. In the latest trend, the fabric is used to make the mix and match co-ords celebrities have recently started rocking.
The latest and most common trend is the mix and match Ankara skirt and shirt. The shirt is a regular button-down type, while the skirt is a sheath silhouette short kind. It is simply fantastic if you want to show off those legs and figure. What’s more amazing is that they are in two different patterns. The only similarity, however, is that they have the same colour tone, so don’t go running off now.
Celebrities and Influencers like Nancy Isime, Rhonkefella, Tomike Adeoye, Sharon Ooja are among the few who have been spotted slaying the trend.
They bring diversity to the styling technique. Some opt for strappy sandals or heels, and others opt for simple slippers. You can strike a gap between casual and fancy by how you style yours.
It’s one thing to wear a matching Ankara, and it’s another to wear a mix and match type.
Our verdict? We love it!
We love how you can dress it down and still dress it up without missing a beat. You can rock yours with sneakers and look casual, or you can adorn yours with whatever accessory you choose. Another way to style it is to wear a round neck t-shirt over it for an extra formal look to work. We’re not done yet because there’s also the option of wearing the top with jeans or the skirt with a fancy top. There’s no pause to its creative outlet.
To get your hands on one of these pieces, you can reach out to the pioneer of the style’s popularity, SGTC Clothing.
