I’ve gotten a little behind sharing my daily outfits from the African print series on the blog. However, I haven’t skipped a beat sharing each look on Instagram like this Ankara flared dress by designer-extraordinaire, Maggie Gold.

Two weeks ago, I shared the very first outfit of the series. I recounted the story of how my sister gave me the idea to showcase beautiful African print styles with you. Sometimes you have to push yourself to do things that you’re uncertain about. And believe me, I was skeptical about doing this series.

And this brings us to the featured designer of this ankara flared dress. Maggie is the queenbee of Maggie Gold. She birthed this brand while pursuing a full time career and mama duties. Like most of the femtrepreneurs in this series, she wanted something more. Something more rewarding. And something she was/would be passionate about. So she went for it!

Now Maggie uses her talents to shine light on the beauty of Africa through the creation of one-of-a-kind African print styles. And there’s no stopping her! What do you think of this stunning ankara flared dress? The beaded collar and full flare style is a fresh new look in this series.

Another feature that makes this dress unique is the marriage between contemporary styles and understated African print fabric. The style of the dress also makes it a comfortable and breathable dress for the balmy summer season to come. Sadly, my ankara flared dress is not currently available on Maggie Gold but here’s a similar flare dress.

A fool-proof technique I use in putting a look together with multiple colors is to pick jewelry and accessories that is evident in the color scheme. Doing so creates cohesion and smooth transition. For my shoes, I picked a classic patent nude pumps (similar) and a pair of matching Ray-Bans.

Using the beaded texture of the collar as a focal piece, I chose a beaded clutch purse (similar) to bring the look together. Playing with colors, textures, and details create a look in perfect unison.
