Your outfit should be simple and classy
When choosing an Ankara outfit for formal events, keep it simple. Whether it’s a dress, skirt or a peplum blouse, remind yourself and your fashion designer that you are attending a formal event hence you need to keep your style very simple and classy. For the ladies, it is best to sew a simple dress or pair up your peplum top with a nice plain colored trouser or skirt. A flair skirt with a single print shirt also looks very good and girly. The Ankara print can also be used to sew a very simple blazer that can be worn over a fitting dress to give you a very Afrocentric look.
