In any case, this outfit will emphasize your femininity and help you attain a refined and elegant image. There are many options that allow a lady look fresh and young.
3. ANKARA TOP
Ankara fabric offers unlimited possibilities when it comes to making Nigerian traditional wears. Its bright colors and unusual patterns can bring a festive atmosphere to even the dullest and most boring day.

To create a beautiful combination of such tops, you can wear pants or skirts of similar colors or just go with a regular pair of jeans. This is a good option for daily activities or for a party.
4. ANKARA MAXI/MIDI SKIRT
Being one of the most feminine elements of the wardrobe, long skirts, or as they are also called, maxi skirts, are loved by most girls, regardless of their figure and height. They are a great alternative to trousers and can successfully mask the imperfections of a woman’s figure by making it visually slimmer; they also add a chic touch and elegance to almost any image.
This item can be found in the latest designer collections, it comes in different varieties of shapes and colors like flay, heavy, restrained or playful; these models are all lovely to behold.
When choosing a style and color for a maxi skirt, it is recommended that you put the wearer’s figure into consideration.
Women with wide hips should go for dark colors and floor length skirts that will make their thighs look narrower. Tight long skirts with high waistline will balance the figure of a woman with a lush chest and broad shoulders. If a person has narrow thighs, they can safely choose a pleated lush skirt. It visually adds volume to the hips.
5. ANKARA DRESS
Regardless of the contemporary fashion and style trends sweeping the fashion industry, the requirements for women’s dresses remain the same – they should be light, feminine and comfortable. An Ankara dress that gently envelops the smooth curves of the body and starts widening from the knee line is ideal to pull off a fashionable look.
At first glance, it may seem that Ankara fabrics all look the same; but stylists has proved to us that one can take advantage of the various patterns of Ankara to create so many unique styles.
The main attractive features of Ankara dresses are their unusual design and bright colors. The soft fabric nicely covers and complements the chest, waist and hips of women. The lower parts of such dresses often greatly expanded and take different forms. You can also make styles with free cuts, mini length and many other variations.
The top of the dress may be made without shoulders or sleeves and with straps across one shoulder or neck. This draws attention to the beautiful outlines of the neck and decollete zone.
In addition, you can add deep cutouts with unusual shapes, asymmetry and various weaves or inserts made of lace. Such models come out looking quite original.
6. BLOUSE AND WRAPPER
We have already talked about skirts and dresses, but there is another style that cannot be forgotten when discussing beautiful feminine traditional attires – the blouse and wrapper. To get it, you just have to wrap the fabric around your waist. The wrapper and blouse can be made from the same material or simply harmonized in color and style. You can choose contrasting shades to create a bright and memorable composition. The people around you will surely appreciate your impeccable taste.
The wrap can be made in any length from mini to maxi. When selecting the length, you need to focus on the occasion and the beauty of your legs. If you have nothing to hide and want to walk with friends on a hot day, then feel free to show off your beautiful legs.
If you are attending a serious event, of course, it is better to choose a more restrained style. The wrapper can be made straight or with different folds, it all depends on how you want to tie it and whether the fabric can maintain an unusual shape.
This style is loved by fans of free cut; a lot of ladies feel very comfortable in BouBou. Because of its practicality, it can be worn in everyday life. Making this style out of expensive fabrics decorated with embroidery, rhinestones and fabric patterns will give you a wonderful evening outfit. Even though this style is traditionally worn by married women, young girls also find modern stylish options.
8. ASO OKE
The aso oke is traditionally worn by Yoruba people; it is a special fabric used for sewing headdresses, blouses, skirts, capes and many other items.
Attires made from aso oke are often worn at weddings. Picking the right style and a combination of colors transforms women to very charming brides.
9. ATIKU STYLES
If you want to relax and forget about bright colors or difficult styles for a day, while also bringing comfort and harmony to your life, then this is one fashion option you should choose. In most cases, the Atiku fabric comes in calm, soft colors that are perfectly for everyday use.
10. KAFTAN STYLES
