The Ankara Top is probably one we don’t see being paired with other pieces as often as the bottom counterpart. With such a beautiful print,, here is how I styled my pretty SGTC Ankara top on jeans.
Apologies for going MIA after my last post, would explain later.
Personally, I’d always find a way to style a beautiful Ankara piece, they’re like my fashion weakness. Before settling on a casual street style look for this Ankara top, I already styled it for Work, Church & Corporate events. As a serial outfit repeater, I’m pretty sure this Ankara top will be a hit back to back.
SGTC is one Nigerian brand that took us all by storm, it came like “bengdengdengdeng” and appealed to the bold-in-fashion & creative fashionistas. Their pieces are edgy, super creative & eye-catching. I’ve been eyeing their pieces for sometime so when they sent me some, it was like candy from the fashion gods.
I used to prefer the peplum Ankara top style but this Ankara top is not basic at all. It is collared and has buttons at the back on a black lapel. I’ve not been feeling the “back-to-front” shirt trend but this gave me half the look and I liked it. It’s long-sleeved but for this look I had to fold it (coupled with the crazy heat in Lagos these days).
Paired with a pair of carrot mom jeans, nude heels, straw bag (my latest love) & a beret, this has to be one of my favorite street style looks especially since I’ve got my African print popping in it.
Now for some quick good news. I’m launching ThriftStoreNG as an e-commerce website for all thrift lovers! So either you’re a regular thrift seller or you want to de-clutter your wardrobe, you can now signup to be a vendor. We would be launching with a Thrift Shopping party on April 2nd (Easter Monday) in Lagos. There’ll also be a Meet & Greet session with some of your favorite style influencers & other creatives. It will be so much fun! Please follow our page for more information. Come through with the support for your girl!
Back to the outfit, how do you style your Ankara top? Have you heard of SGTC? Do you like their pieces? Please drop a comment & let me know.
