It’s another beautiful month and I am excited about some stunning African clothing this season. It is no lie that African print clothes are one of the most elaborate pieces of clothing you can find today. Anyone can rock this piece of heaven regardless of age, race, gender or nationality.
Huge celebrities like Beyoncé and Rihanna have been spotted wearing African clothing. I grew up in West Africa, Nigeria to be exact and every girl dreams of the day when she gets to pick her “asoebi” for her wedding.
Asoebi can be likened to the clothing/style that brides select for their bridesmaids. Of course, asoebi outfits are typically made from ankara print (not the city of Ankara!).
African print clothes have become such a hot commodity that even giant retailers like Amazon now carry a plethora of ankara clothes. Here are just a handful of some of the best-selling ankara pieces available on Amazon right now.

Ankara is one of the several types of African print. Other popular prints are Kente, Dashiki, and Kitenge. What I love about African clothing is that the prints hold a significance to their area of origin.
These days a lot of African clothing have been modernized to trendy and contemporary styles. It’s no surprise to see an off the shoulder African print blouse with ruffles and exaggerated sleeves paired with denim jeans.
Astounding African Clothing This Year
Without keeping you waiting any longer, here are the most-wanted African print clothes to get your hands on this year!
A decade ago, you would mostly see traditional African print blouses, wrappers, and skirts with the major distinguishing factor being the quality and weight of the fabric used as well as embroidery finish. Now, we are seeing a major shift, particularly from the younger generation towards styles with western influence.
This post is one of my several series of posts featuring some of the best African clothing available right now. These pieces are handmade with love and typically cost more than ‘fast-fashion” clothing.
To buy any one of these African clothing, simply click on the photos above to be directed to the seller’s store. There, you will get more information and instructions on how to shop the look.

Sadly I do not make these African styles. Once an item sells out, it might be gone forever. If an ankara clothing appears to be sold out or not available, reach out to the seller. The African style may still be available but not relisted in the seller’s store. It never hurts to ask!
If you are interested in getting any of the African clothing above, click on the photo to be taken to the seller’s store. One feature I love about ankara styles is that no two pieces are exactly the same.
African clothing is a piece of my heritage that I love and share. Although the press is inundated with things that are “bad” in Africa, I’m happy to say that African clothing is not one of them!
I hope you love these Ankara styles as much as I do. I’ll make more of these roundup posts in the future so make sure you stay subscribed to the blog to get notified about future posts. Thank you for reading!
