We know that there are a lot of Ankara lovers out there constantly searching for new styles to try out. While this may not be a “trendy Ankara styles to try out piece”, you just may stumble upon a few new styles that catch your fancy.

Work places generally allow workers wear non-corporate outfits on Fridays. This is usually the time a lot of us break out our fresh Ankara outfits. The sad part is not all your native attire qualifies to be worn to work. You can’t wear your iro and buba made with exquisite lace and you definitely shouldn’t wear your mermaid gown that gives you the hour glass shape.

It’s best to keep it simple – the simpler the better. Go for simple attires, pair with quiet jewelry and a nice pair of shoes. Here are a couple of Ankara styles that are simple and fashionable enough for the work place.

Ankara bodycon dress

This style is simple, figure-hugging and fashionable. No need for excessive jewelry. Your purse and shoes are all the accessories you need. Or you could use a tiny belt like the fashionista in the picture below
