    Co-ords for Summer…

    Coming in hot this Summer are co-ords.  Co-ords, also known as “twin sets”, are matching tops and bottoms. I have always been a fan of twin sets because they are so easy to put on as oppose to rompers. With matching sets you don’t have to worry about combining other articles of clothing. One of the best things about Co-ords are that they are tailored for every shape and come in all kinds of silhouette. They also come in every color and/or prints imaginable, which is a plus.

    Mixing Prints with Ankara…

    As you may well know, I have a thing for prints and patterns hence incorporating it into my looks is one of my style norms. Mixing prints are great for adding fun to an outfit, especially for this warmer climate. Depending on the prints, it can be uniquely unpredictable but specific to the individual’s choice of color or material. I decided to pair two different prints to achieve my Ankara blocking. Personally, the bolder the print the better however, you do not want to make your outfit overwhelming hence minimal accessories are your best choice. I complimented my look with a solid colored mule. In addition, be mindful when mixing…
