I know how frustrating it is when you find a gorgeous ankara piece like this African midi skirt only for it to be sold out before you got the chance to buy it. Luckily, this genuine African print skirt is still available in sizes small through extra large (S-XL), has pockets, and is currently on sale!

And, I just ordered this kitten heel version in nude color; it’s perfect! I love how well it fits; it’s also a fantastic dupe for the $995 Valentino Rockstud pointy toe sandals that is literally on fire this summer.
However, my designer-inspired Valentino dupe is under $40. And so is my wooden bamboo bag, a high-quality dupe for this summer’s ‘it’ bag, Cult Gaia. Peep my $9 matching bamboo earrings (yup! it’s a dupe for these $98 version).
But on a more serious note though, I’m so happy wearing more African print clothes. I left like the summer months were never long enough in Alaska to truly enjoy my collection of African wax print pieces.
My beautiful sister, Alco, was a willing participant of this ankara skirt and blouse photoshoot. Together, we did a dressed up version wearing this gorgeous Boriah African midi skirt.
Each piece of this locally sourced 100% wax cotton patchwork skirt was handsewn by artisan women employees in the bustling Eko market of Lagos, Nigeria. But if you want one, don’t sleep on it. There are only a few of these skirts available on Amazon.

I’m wearing a super lightweight scallop blouse (similar) from a few years ago. I bought it in pink and orange, but I find the pink to be more versatile with the pieces I already own. Here’s a similar scallop hem blouse that’s on sale.
My wooden bamboo bag comes with a removable purse insert. I removed the palm print insert to keep the outfit clean and focused on the hero piece, the African midi skirt. The strap detail of my studded rivet sandals (very similar) are a match with my wooden purse, and the patent leather matches the colors of my skirt and blouse.
Alco allowed me to style her for this shoot. She’s looking like a shnack aka a bombshell in that ankara skirt! Although I’m bigger than Alco, we are both wearing a size small thanks to the elasticized waist. The skirt also has a zip closure and hook at the back.
In terms of styling, I would trade the heels for this braided sandals or ballet flats for a dressed up but casual look. And the bamboo bag for a small wallet (this is hot right now); and the bamboo earrings for simple stud earrings. You can also wear a simple black tee to tone down your overall appearance even further (but, why would you? ;)).
Once fall weather approaches, you can comfortably wear this African midi skirt with a pair of riding boots and cardigan or oversized sweater (yay for the elasticized waist).
Do you see where I’m going with this skirt? Yes, you guessed right. This ankara skirt is a versatile piece! Grab one while you can and recreate these ankara skirt and blouse outfits with your unique touch.
