Ankara top & cropped pants


Considering the fact that it snowed over the weekend and temperatures keep dropping well into the 20’s here in NYC, it is safe to say that winter is here to stay and there’s a pretty good chance that we may have a white Christmas this year. But as we’re getting into the holiday spirit, everyone’s bringing out their best outfits – exuding the Christmas cheer through anything from their PJs to their party looks, in the brightest shades of red, as it is the unofficial official color of the season.

Shades of yellows and browns are pretty festive too in their own way. As soon as I received this gorgeous ankara top in the mail from the lovely folks at Laviye, I knew I wanted to style it in a way that would accentuate the yellow details. The bow details are very feminine, the print is quite captivating, the colors are vibrant in true African print style, and the bell sleeves take this top from a basic button down to a fabulous piece that will get you noticed from a distance. Why blend in when you can stand out? Check out Laviye for all African print attires and accessories.
