When I was growing up, I didn’t appreciate the beauty that was the African textile. I viewed it, as something the old mama’s wore. Which they did to be fair. Forward a few years later, and I’m now the old mama, ha! African prints are bold, vivid and eye catching. These are all the qualities that I look for in a print. You really do feel like a Queen wearing Ankara or Kitenge.
I came across Grassfields on Instagram and they stock the most beautiful and stylish outfits. They also have accessories to go with the outfits like matching head wraps. I wore this outfit to death this summer and I cannot wait to build my Ankara collection.
I paired the co-ord with a kiondo (straw bag) that my mum got from Kenya. A bold lip and earrings completed the look.
