This time of year always seems to have a very full social calendar. From weddings to graduations, office parties, Christmas parties to meeting the in-laws, not to mention spending time with your loved ones. With tailors and designers getting more and more creative with Ankara designs, why not incorporate these in your holiday outfits? Below I have selected 5 outfits to help you get celebration ready.
Outfit 1: Office party
For this year’s office party you need not restrict yourself to dark coloured outfits. Why not opt for an ankara pants with a matching peplum top that is sure to leave your colleagues admiring your creativity.
And if trousers aren’t your thing, make a statement with a one-of-a-kind skirt with a contrasting top.
Outfit 2: Meeting the in-laws
I usually think that when you have to meet the in-laws you want something respectful that will not offend anyone. Maxi skirts are a great, not to mention safe bet. Get one in your favourite colour combination and pair it with a simple top. You can add some personality with a gold belt, some chunky jewellery and matching headgear.
Outfit 3: Wedding
Wedding season is upon us and nothing screams wedding attire like a statement ankara outfit. A flared skirt with an equally stunning top will leave other wedding guests asking you where you got your outfit made. And in keeping with the stunning theme, ensure you have a well-thought out hairstyle be it braids, a weave or your own hair.
Outfit 4: Graduation
I like to think that your graduation is one time you can push boundaries with little to no judgement. Even if you have to cover-up with your gown, make sure that when you do remove it, your dress makes the best statement of the year. Not everyone gets a chance to graduate so savour the moment. Get a matching clutch bag that can still make the much needed statement even when your dress is hidden.
Outfit 5: Christmas Lunch
If you celebrate Christmas like I do, it means that for that day at least you will not count how many calories you have eaten. A nice simple free dress like this will keep your food baby hidden without forcing you to abandon your carefully thought out Christmas outfit for an old t-shirt.

One of the things I promised myself I would do, ever since this pandemic started and life slowed down, is that I would dress up every single day. Granted, I had nowhere to go, but putting on an outfit, no matter how simple, uplifted my…
