AFRICAN PRINTS- MIDI SKIRT
Happy Sunday lovelies,
Back then, you knew she was really from Africa if she owned 1 or 2 pieces of African prints/ chitenje /ankara / kente or whatever you want to call it.
The thing is, The fabric has been here since forever. I remember as a little girl wearing the chitenje fabric because it was a traditional outfit and quite honestly, it was also one of the most accesible kind of african inspired prints that could be worn very casually or out for an ocassion.
Everyone wore it. My mom would buy yards of chitenje fabric, then give it to a tailor/seamstress to make us an outfit of our choice. It seemed like there were only a couple of styles everyone stuck with.
Well, the story is obviously different today because African prints now have gotten so much recognition from designers all over the world and they are now made ready to wear. They are pouring down runways with incredible designs and breathtaking prints.
I bet you this trend is not going anywhere anytime soon, so I will be rocking some of my skirts in fall with a cute blazer or cardigan.
I paired this skirt with a leather crop top from new look, my African princess accessories (beads, bangles and headgear which can also be worn as a necklace) and a pair of sandals.
I hope you guys enjoy!! For orders for similar skirts, Email us at the firstname.lastname@example.org
