FASHION AND STYLE: GOING TRIBAL AKA ANKARA

I don't know about you but I love the fact that international prints are so in right now. In the fashion world it's known as tribal print but in Africa (Nigeria) it's origins, this very cool style of fabric is know as Ankara. Ankara has a very interesting history (google it, this is not fashion history lol) and is worn anywhere from everyday to special occasions. Major designers like Burberry and Marni have showcased tribal prints in their collections indicating it's presence in mainstream fashion. My tribal look consist of a peplum top made of red and black Ankara (get the look here). Peplum tops are totally in so when I saw this I fell in love. In order to breakup the print I added a vintage belt. The belt also makes my waist smaller, making me love the top even more. Depending on what color your prints are you can either go with another print but in matching colors or a simple and sexy pair of Capri pants like I did. A pair of pencil heel stilettos and a classic bag complete my tribal meets sexy look ready for any occasion.
