OOTD : Ankara (Wax Print) Style

ankara tribe appeal styling


This outfit was inspired by the beautiful flared ankara top that I found on Pintrest. I paired it with another ankara print pencil skirt and a fly purple turban. The yellow accessories really bring  a pop of color to the outfit. The Dolce & Gabbana floral cat eye glasses give the outfit a great splash. Take a look above.
