Brownie's Summer Trends: Ankara

Featuring The Ivory Room

Written by: Bella Date: July 13, 2016

Dear Brownie,



So I know I'm not a fashionista but for some reason, this summer, I feel like I've gotten a pretty good hang on what is going to be on trend, at least for me :) So I've started a mini series on my youtube channel, Brownie Bits based on it.

I will be compiling videos, not more than a minute long each showcasing the styles I think will be really popular this summer, pictures included! 

Our first trend just so happens to be Ankara! For those that don't know, Ankara is not just a city, its a type of maerial usually predominant in different parts of Africa. We use this material for all sorts of events because the gorgeous colours showcase our rich heritage. Ankara is fast making a comeback in my generation and this summer, I predict that it's going to be all the rage!

I was invited to the beautiful Ivory Room to take these pictures and I couldn't say yes fast enough! Haven't heard of Ivory Room? Check out the revie I did on them last week HERE


Outfit Details...

When choosing ankara, I always think it's important to chose what matches your skin the best. In this case, I thought the blue complimented my brown skin very well so I went with it!

As for the jellies, I'm all for summer comfort this year and they seemed to do the job while making me just a little bit taller!



What I Wore...

Ankara Outfit- Home/Custom made (would you buy these if I sold them??)

Jellies- Asos, I wore them HERE and HERE as well!


Now, on to the video! Let me know what you think! It was shot and edited by Mo!


Quick Question...

What are your style predictions for the summer?


Be Better Brownie!
