Ankara shirt Dress

We are back this week with a style post from my closet and it is an ankara shirt dress made from Veba fabric. ankara styles

I fell in love with the idea of making a shirt dress with prints after the GT Bank Fashion Weekend. Tayo Couture had tailored a collared dress  which I wore on the 3rd day and as soon as I had that dress on me, I knew that we needed to make some more of that. However, there is no need replicating a design you already have in your closet. Hence the search for another design when I stumbled on this shirt dress on reality TV star, Masika Kalysha.

Picking the right fabric to bring this to life was of utmost importance and Tayo Coture (@tayocoture) did a great job bringing this design to life. Well tailored, great cut and the finishing is nothing short of amazing. ankara style

Being a shirt dress, I decided to wear a short underneath since I was going for an event where I was likely to deal with the wind. So, I opted for an old short made from a similar fabric design but in a different colour. veba
