Tell me a fabric that looks incredibly more stunning than an African print and I will show you better ones that surpasses your choice. These fabrics are known for their unique designs, rich colors and patterns which although originated from Indonesia by a Dutch Entrepreneur back in 1846, quickly became accessible in Africa because of their high demand and by Africa, I mean the continent which comprises of 54 individual countries. Vlisco was first introduced in Ghana and the process of making them is called “batik”. While these fabrics may seem similar, and generally known as Ankara in West Africa, some designs are particular to a country and in most cases a tribe.
On today’s blog post, I will share more about African print summer dresses and how you can incorporate them into your Summer wardrobe.
When incorporating prints into your summer wardrobe, be sure to include a piece of African fabric because they portray the delicate and unique African designs. These designs have been widely known and gained more popularity far across international waters with African fashion designers, making statement pieces with these fabrics. From dresses, skirts, blazers, pants, two piece sets, suits etc, they are highly sort after and worn by people other than Africans.
I will consider summer dresses in any African print, a staple for the season because it’s gorgeous in all its way and it’s a true depiction of summer with its bright vibrant colors and unique patterns. If you consider print mixing to be your style, these fabrics are great ways to incorporate into your wardrobe and a floral pattern like this dress, fits right into Summer.
Since these fabrics usually come heavily patterned, you can always opt for neutral accessories to style them with as I did with my sandals and Devine Twine Hoops from Its all about culture, or you can pick a color to to highlight like I did with my belt and bag. Dress comes without a belt but I styled with a belt to add a little waist line.
