Hey Divas,

Somewhere between our hectic days and relaxing evenings, we are often on a quest for the most appropriate dress that fits, that most comfortable, yet stylish piece of clothing that we can walk all around in, making a bold and astonishing statement while we are at it.

This is where the ”Shirt dress” comes in.  What is a shirt dress? Basically it’s a longer version of a shirt, button-down usually, slightly over-sized, gown, that looks like a shirt but acts like a dress. It is a style of dress that borrows details from a man’s shirt. The details could include a collar, a button front, or cuffed sleeves. Often, these dresses are made up in crisp fabrics, much like a men’s dress shirt would be.

Still in the business of promoting our very own African Ankara prints Fabrics, the Ankara shirt dress is one of the staples you will need in your wardrobe this summer season.Ankara shirt dresses are party-worthy, unique and stylish. It is a more creative way to rock the African fabric with a unique twist and still remain trending.

It is as fashionable as it sounds, as you can wear it cinged at the waist with a belt, if thin belts are present, or layer it up with big belts. Or, you can leave it un-belted for a more sophisticated effortless vibe.

Thinking about rocking this style next? Or perhaps wondering how to describe it to your tailor? You’ve got our Ankara shirt dress look book below to help you with that….
