Ankara Lookbook: Straight Gowns

On the days I choose to wear Ankara, my go-to style is a simple straight gown. I really refuse to walk around restricted with folds of fabric in my hand – the mermaid gown struggle. A lot of ladies have days when they would rather not be restricted by clothing. On such days, a straight Ankara gown will definitely come in handy.

There are a lot of straight gown styles to choose from. Here are a few:

Simple but classy – because Ankara fabric is all the design you need.

Plain and pattern gowns

A lot of fashionistas like this style because of its superb look. You may have to purchase fabrics that come in plain and pattern (either as a single piece or two separate pieces) or you can just trust that your fashion designer will get the right shade to match.

Try to be a little selective about the designers you choose for this dress style – in the wrong hands, it could go sideways fast.
