African prints, popularly known as Ankara, has gained popularity in the global fashion scene since 2010. The material is primarily associated with Africa mainly because of the tribal-like patterns and motifs. The African print fabric has gone from cultural attire to a glamorous wardrobe must-have and right now the spotlight is on Africa.
Wearing two different prints is a trend that has come to stay but still one that is quite difficult to pull off. While some fashionistas can easily pull any prints off and tie it in with their accessories with perfect charisma and poise, for others may not find this trend quite as easy. Not to worry, Madivas is here to help you in creating statement looks with mixing two different prints.
The easiest way to mix prints is by mixing prints with similar colours.They would most probably look not too far off if you were to wear them together. It could be different prints with quite similar colour palettes and so not too far apart.
Another way to mix up the Ankara African prints is matching up big prints with smaller ones. Big prints with small or thick prints with thin prints would create an appealing yet strong contrast
Wearing them together created a nice harmony and they almost look like they were bought as a one-piece.
