5 Chic Ways To Rock Your Ankara Flared Midi Skirt!

A full flared midi skirt is synonymous with '50s fashion and has proven itself to be one of the coveted styles of all time. It is fun, stylish, and uber ladylike. The ankara print version has become a wardrobe staple and the fash pack's skirt of choice. So whether you're heading to brunch with friends, church, or a glam night out, you just can't go wrong with it. Thinking of giving your midi skirts a refresh? The options are endless, but see below for 5 styling tips... 


Don't you just love making a simple yet strong statement look? This doll makes the skirt the focus of her ensemble by pairing it with her plain white shirt and nicely folded sleeves. Her barely there sandals are bang on trend and i'm awarding double beauty points for her coloured 'fro and dark berry lips. She looks blooming lovely.

Looking to ward off the chill? Take your cue from Busola of The FashionStirFry and pair your skirt with a black turtleneck jumper. Gain full warmth with a pair of knee-high boots and up the glam factor with a statement neck candy. Notice the playful touch added by her knotted belt? Such a fun look....no wonder she can't stop smiling.

Make a style splash like Folake of StylePantry by teaming your stripe shirt with your skirt. Stripes and florals always equal a clever combo and we can see the outcome is nothing short of chic. Extra style points for the nude loubs.

This StyleandPoise doll looks very sweet and pretty in her ankara skirt but the denim jacket lends a tough touch to the entire look. Her tan sandals complements her skin tone nicely and I love how she matched her toe nails to her vest.

Print Clash!
The rule here is go hard on prints or go home. Bold enough? Mix and match your ankara prints like Stella Jean for a daring look. To avoid looking fussy, wear large prints against smaller prints. Don't be afraid of patterns...and have fun doing it.
