STYLE NOTES: Above, Nollywood actress and fitness guru, Kate Henshaw, dazzles in a block-print high-waist ankara maxi pencil skirt paired with a flutter sleeved top. She completes the look with a black Turban Gele with rosy front-knot, and a clutch purse in hand.
2. Ankara Peplum Pencil Dress with a Chiffon See-through Top | Toke Makinwa Glows in Burgundy Chiffon Top Dress Mixed with Ankara Bottom and Completes with an Emerald Green Turban-Cap
STYLE NOTES: Above, Toke Makinwa, looks radiant in this chic peplum-style ankara-and-chiffon dress. This cute outfit features a burgundy-coloured sheer chiffon top with funnel sleeves.
She completed the look with a ruffled velvet turban cap and a cute little black handbag. Toke is a master of delightful colour combinations. Her overall attire looks perfectly coordinated and well-blended in colour.
Her pencil ankara skirt has a combination of emerald green, blue and a touch of burgundy which ties in perfectly with the burgundy top part of the dress. Again, she ties-in the emerald green in her ankara with that emerald green turban cap, and also a matching colour mini-handbag. How cool is that?
3. This One Shoulder Ankara Pencil Maxi Gown with Flower Details Design Looks Amazing on Toke
STYLE NOTES: Again, media personality, Toke Makinwa, slays in a fitted one-shoulder ankara long gown with pink flower design details on the skirt area. She complements her ensemble with a turban-gele and a gold clutch purse for added bling.
Here again, Toke displays her colour combo mastery with this number: purple turban cap combined on a mahogany asymmetric neck ankara dress with pink flower details.
4. Halter Neck Fitted Ankara Pencil Dress Style to Show Off Your Buff Shoulders
STYLE NOTES: This chic has the most beautiful shoulders and she knows it, and shows it off. Above, Ebony Life TV girl, Bolanle, was spotted at Akah and Claire’s Wedding looking all glam and flaunting her buff shoulders.
She looks well put-together in this long, yellow and black fitted ankara pencil gown with halter-neck style. She complements her look with a brown headwrap and a clutch purse.
