You can’t get inspiration for ankara styles from just anyone. There’s just something about making the vibrancy and versatility of ankara work, that only a few can pull off. And that’s why we only take style cues from the very best.
Award winning TV Presenter and documentary film maker, Bolanle Olukanni, is goals when it comes to ankara styles. We would be kidding ourselves in 3D if we ever thought otherwise. Her ability to transform her style with the use of ankara makes us so envious. Why can’t we dress like her? *insert sigh here*
Well, like the old saying goes, the best form of flattery is imitation. So let’s tuck our envy in our back pocket and get amazing inspiration for ankara styles from Bolanle.
Bolanle in Sue Manuell
For a speaking engagement at Babcock University, Bolanle rocked a stunning ankara style by Sue Manuell. We love how pretty and simple the silhouette is, leaving the prints to do the talking.
At Covenant University, Bolanle rocked a Sue Manuel ankara style again with a sexier approach. The dress featured a mono strap sleeve and fan detailing which brought the dimension!
Bolanle in SGTC Clothing
Bolanle looked very African chic at Afro Punk in South Africa. We love the fact that she paired her SGTC Clothing outfit with sneakers. Sometimes nobody has time for heels abeg!
Is it us or is ankara the best fabric for lazy days? Bolale whipped out another SGTC Clothing outfit for a fun brunch that had us feeling some type of way.
Bolanle in wonderland
The Mose Store had a wonderland themed event and Bolane was every bit Alice. We loved the ankara theme and had more love for Bolanle’s outfit.
Feeling envious yet? Join the club. We meet on Wednesdays. And if you’re a very curvy girl who thinks these looks won’t work for her, check out Taje Prest’s Ankara styles.
