How to Pull Off The Same Ankara Print in Different Colors

First of all, this isn't a dress. It's a two piece. Surprising right? This ankara print is a classic. It's been around for decades and comes in different colors. I've always wanted to design an outfit with it using at least two colors. So when my sister @ijelefc had the yellow and orange for sale I had to purchase it.


It was a no-brainer that I'd use it to make my signature double print skirt. I also chose to make matching tube tops and head scarves. The cherry on top was when I realized I already had a purse with the same fabric but in a lighter shade of orange. This purse was a gift from my friend, Yemi, a couple years ago.


To pull this look off I knew I'd have to limit my accessories and stick to simple sandals. I wanted the focus to be on the actual outfit. Plus, the outfit is colorful and distracting enough. Summer might be ages away but a sunny look like this is always a sight for sore eyes.
