The summer is upon our fellows in the west, however the heat is just about to turn itself up on us here in West Africa and we can not lose guard. Stle must be extremely onpoint. Gone are they days you could go viral just because your outfit is made out of African print, so we are here to serve you some amazing tips on how to remain stylish in print before giving you a dose of how it was served by Nigerian style girl Angel Ineh.
Buy African Brands! First and foremost is more a principled tip. Do not walk off to any tailor and make your request, take yourself to a renowned African fashion brand and if you don’t know any, you can get to us here at FashionGHANA.com at our online shop and pick something up. It’s a new day and it’s all about supporting African businesses.
Distinguish yourself! Now for style! Print is grass rooted in African culture and style, it is worn by the average beautiful village folk as well as those living in the high risings. So simply wearing a print outfit will add any chic or expense to your look. You would either need something that has more than print to it, ie. chiffon, leather, silk, etc, or alternatively ensured you style it very well with jewelry and accessories that definitely let people know your class.
Do not overdo your print! and also respect the colors! You can mix match your prints but you have to be tactful about it. See below.
However, since we are looking at summer looks, less is more, and mix-matching in less is too confusing to the eye. Not enough space to outline alternative prints, so please for the beauty of the world, keep it down to one print.
Respect Your Body! It’s own if you don’t have the perfect legs for the summer, we have wide-leg trousers, palazzo pants and a whole lot more to bury your skin under. And please, if your stomach is screaming don’t expose me, listen, and don’t expose it. Yes, we all love for everyone to challenge their insecurities, but then there’s insecurities and then just knowing when something doesn’t work. Don’t serve crop tops when your belly is singing another tune. Know your bust size! Yes, the world is negatively prejudiced against busty women. A slim girl will get complimented in a top that showed of much of her chest but a busty lady with getting comments like “Why does she need to expose herself” etc.
Yes, all these discriminations are up for debate, but our job is to simply show you how to rock the summer. So with no further adiu, get some fabulous inspiration from Angel Ineh below.

Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube. Designer’s registration is ongoing on the AccraFashionWeek.org website.
