Steal Her Style: Beyonce in 'Ankara'/'kitenge'/'chitenge'/African print print Cropped Tee & a high waist pencil skirt

African prints/ ‘ankara’ prints are causing a storm in the fashion world and a few celebrities like Beyonce and Solange have been spotted rocking them. Crop tops are also one of this summer’s hottest trend and you can find them in the high streets after getting inspiration from Louis Vuitton and Pucci catwalk show. 

Beyonce posted this photo of her OOTD (Outfit of the Day) on Instagram and we are totally feeling the mixed print vibe on her outfit.  Beyonce paired her £12.00 tribal Aztec crop tee with a £30.20 high waisted chevron print tube skirt both from Topshop. The singer finished off her look with black heels, leopard print bag and a hat.

African prints

‘Ankara’ prints are chic, trendy and perfect for glamming up a dull boring and uninspiring outfit.  African prints/’ankara’/’kitenge’ are so versatile and can be dressed up or down for a day or evening look. These prints can also be incorporated with other prints just like the way Beyonce teamed up her African print cropped tee with a chevron print skirt for a stylish look. African prints can also be mixed with other fabrics such as sheer or silk fabrics to create a contemporary look or can be worn on their own.

Crop Tops

Dare to bare your midriff is in vogue this season. Crop tops can be stylish and chic if worn the right way. Crop tops can be worn by everyone regardless of their size, shape or age, surprisingly even middle aged women can pull off this look. Yes you read that right middle aged women can also wear cropped tops as long as they reveal a little bit of skin and not go all Rihanna on us. The key rule to remember when wearing crop tops is to make sure you pair them with high waisted skirts or trousers so that the upper rib area will be the only thing on display.

How to wear ‘ankara’ cropped top

Just like Beyonce pair it with a high waisted pencil skirt and heels for a chic look. Wear an ‘ankara’ cropped top with high waisted denim jeans and loafers for an off duty look. For a casual look pair the ‘ankara’ cropped top with printed pants, heels and a clutch bag. Wear the ‘kitenge’ crop top with a pair of shorts, denim jacket/biker jacket and converse for a brunch look.
