How to Style the Ankara Skirt This Fall

Hellooo! In today’s video, I address different ways to wear the ankara skirt this Fall before you pack them up with the rest of your summer clothing. I’m a skirt girl. Always have, always will be. Skirts are great year round pieces that can work from the hot summers to the cold winters. That’s why they’re the first in this series.

Last week started off rough for me because the weather was gloomy, wet and cold. Basically all the characteristics I dislike in a season. Do you experience temperament changes from the weather too? For a print lover like me, it can be a daunting task figuring out what and how to wear your prints when all you want to do is wear black, wrap your body in a cocoon of warmth and never leave your house. I hope this video spark new ideas within you. How do you plan to wear your African print this fall?

Saluttt ! Le video d’aujourd’hui partage des idées  différentes de porter la jupe d’ankara cet automne avant vous la rangez avec les autres vétements d’été. Je suis femme en jupe toujours à jamais. Les jupes sont articles de toutes l’années qui passent de l’été à l’hiver. C’est la raison que je les ai choisi première de la série.

J’en voyais de dures la semaine dernière parce qui il faisait froid, pluvieux et sombre… Toutes les choses que je déteste dans une saison. Ressentez-vous le changement du tempérament avec le temps? Pour moi qui adore l’ankara, je le trouve difficile parfois de decider comment en porter. Je ne veux que m’habiller en noir, me couvrir et me cacher chez moi. J’espère que ce video vous donne des nouvelles idées. Comment allez-vous porter vos tissus africans cet automne?

Thoughts on this look?
“I felt so vibrant in this outfit. I love how the pattern accentuated my heels and lip color. The pop of yellow provided a great contrast that made the outfit stand out overall.”
Look 2
“I loved the purple skirt and how simple the design was to make a semi-formal look. A sleek high bun and a nice throw can turn a simple skirt into a killer evening look!”
