The weather has been a bit cold this past few weeks, therefore it didn’t come as a surprise that a lot of people were seen in sweaters, coats, cardigans and scarfs. For those who are in countries like the UK, US, Ice land etc The trench coat is a wardrobe staple, this heavy but gorgeous piece of clothing helps to warm them up when its cold during autumn or when its snowing during winter. Unlike our counterparts, in this part of the world we just make due with cardigans and this is because the weather is not so cold that the trench coat can be accommodated.
Fashion designers, who have spent time abroad fell in love with the trench coat and who can blame them, asides from keeping a person warm the trench coat can be very elegant and stylish and a lot of people style it differently. This gave the fashion designers an idea, why not create a light version of this for the African market and that’s what they did.
Now we have our own trench coat made with the African print fabric, the Ankara trench coat just like the one’s abroad can be styled differently, take a look at the ways and be inspired;
The Ankara trench coat can be worn as a dress, depending on how you see fit, style it with simple accessories.
The trench coat is meat to be layered and one of the cool ways you can rock it is when you wear it on top of a tank top and jeans.
The trench coat can be work to the office when its cold out, all you need is the perfect pats and shirt… Viola!
Your Ankara trench coat doesn’t have to come with elbow or long sleeve, you can apply creativity by trying a string sleeve design like this one.
The idea that you can only pair your coat with tight pants is outdated, for a classy and sophisticated work look, a wide leg pant would be perfect.
You don’t have to do the same thing all the time, if you have an Ankara trench coat with sleeve why not try an Ankara cape trench coat next.
The sleeveless Ankara trench coat is whats in vogue, everyone wants a piece, it has become a must-have and if you don’t have one then you need to get one.
