Street style: 'Ankara/Kitenge'/chitenge/African print Dress
‘Ankara/kitenge’ styles have recently gained headlines in the fashion world and I love everything about Charlotte’s ‘Ankara/kitenge’ dress, the length the design the print everything about it is simply gorgeous.
Ankara/kitenge prints are versatile, the colour and patterns have given rise to so many possibilities and they can worn by everyone regardless of their race, background or culture.
Ankara/kitenge prints can be tailor made to suit any occasion (casual and formal wear), and they’re usually colourful and appealing and a few celebs have been spotted wearing them.
Ankara prints can be sewn by blending different prints/materials together or just using one print like Charlotte’s dress.
These prints can make outfits from office, casual to wedding wear and there also accessories such as earrings, bangles, shoes, bags, necklaces and rings made using Ankara prints.
Here are a few ways of wearing Ankara dress, pair your Ankara dress with a plain blazer and heels. You can also team up your Ankara dress with a cardigan and pumps or trainers.
