This is just a perfect jumpsuit.  I’m going to tell you why; it can be worn with or without the inner top. It can also be worn without the belt. Its colors are uniquely combined as they draw more attention than the style. This jumpsuit can be worn with a beautiful turtle neck top to the office or worn casually without the inner vest to an evening date with boo. It does not need too many accessories because it’s better to be as simple as possible in this jumpsuit.

“The Lord of Adire fabrics” as I call him, Adekunle Gold never disappoints.  Well with this attire, there’s no two ways to this, you can either look good or look good. This adire shirt and pants can be rocked with sneakers as seen above, leather sandals with little detailing and oxford shoes. Please, avoid trying out leather slippers unless one with simple designs on it. Always put into consideration the design on the fabric. If you’re going for a less busy fabric, then a busy footwear can work, that way more attention will bed drawn to your footwear with less on your outfit and vice versa.

This Ankara dungaree just struck me in the deepest part of my heart, no kidding. Sadly, the gladiators are getting more attention than the dungaree. Nevertheless, it’s still gorgeous. It can be worn with a tee or a camisole, it all depends on you. Aside sandals, sneakers, loafers, ankle boots (with or without heels) would fit too. It can be worn for a party or any casual occasion.

She’s as happy as the styling. This Ankara shift dress isn’t a bad idea for a fabulous Thursday look. She rocked it just the perfect KAYOJA street style way; the white sneakers gives the shift dress the very classy and swift look. When you try this style out, remember to keep the accessories simple.

First, I would like to acknowledge the beauty in the golden yellow pant and how well it suits her skin color. Secondly, the fact that the pant is sauced up with an Ankara off-shoulder blouse makes it more gorgeous and yeah the footwear- perfect! It can be worn any where except to the office, a wedding ceremony and to church. It is the perfect look for the girls’ day out.

That’s it, our top 5 the Streets of Ankara first edition. Always remember, when getting your street glam on, try to keep your accessories as simple as possible so you don’t end up looking like one “money miss road” like that. Have fun while walking the streets of Ankara.
