Ankara print is an African wax print which mainly derived from West Africa, the style consists of bold colors with inspired print beautifully displayed. I’ve seen pieces that are high-end quality and those that fit my budget; but still beautiful none the less.
This Ankara skirt was gifted to me several years ago and I just adore it. The fabric is cotton, as many of the industrialized ones are, the detailed print is very eye catching along with the deep side pockets and trail of buttons in the front.
I styled the skirt in two different looks choosing to tie the belt in front for high waist look then in back for longer waist affect. I also did a shoe change up, more looks below.
The white faux leather deep neck bodysuit gives this style a less dramatic edgy street look and the denim jacket just ties it all together. The pretty pink shoes, I gave them a nick name, are such a wonderful pop of color with the entire look. I’d definitely wear this style on a date night!

What am I unapologetic for this week:
My hairstyle choice. There is some discussion about how our hair should look in a business arena, mainly straight or how the powers that be like it. Frankly, it bothers me that anyone would have to defend how they choose to wear/style their own hair. I am unapologetic and overjoyed to have my locs, my hair the way I deem it should be; it truly represents who I am. I’ve heard some negative remarks about the look and everyone has there opinion yet NO ONE has the right to tell me or you how to style our hair.
Thanks for stopping by, until next time nzuri, keep styling YOU unapologeticly!
