Have you decided on what trends you will be sporting this spring? You have a variety of options, ranging from prints and pastels to bold and floral colors.

 

Another ‘It’ trend we encourage you to consider incorporating into any outfit of your choice this spring is Ankara, African print from West Africa. There are also a lot of African designers and local tailors with the right aesthetic that can create amazing and lust-worthy designs to suit your personality.

 

Below, we have identified some Ankara inspired styles that we hope will inspire you to enhance your looks this season.
