Our Three Must-Have Items This Summer
The first day of Spring, officially, is March 20th. We are nearly there! I don’t know about you, but I for one am completely sick of the cold weather, the sun setting before 5:00pm, and navigating snow covered sidewalks during my morning commute. It’s hard to believe we will be enjoying beach days, July fireworks, and summer cocktails in just a few months.
That being said, those few months always seem to drag on, and I can confidently say that all of us are ready for a much-needed vacation. Luckily, for those who are attending High School or College, spring break provides the perfect opportunity for that. Whether you’re planning outfits for a trip to Mexico in a few weeks or simply wanting to update your summer wardrobe, we’ve got you covered.
Our Lesha Maxi Dress is a classic summer wardrobe staple piece. It is sewn with a gorgeous yellow and blue African Ankara print that is perfect for welcoming in this new season.
It is designed with a deep v-neckline and a long slit to show off your legs. This dress is incredibly flattering for all body types and will make sure you stay cool while spending time in the much-needed sunshine.
Personally, I would style this piece with dainty gold jewelry and a pair of high heels. However, if I was going to Mexico, I would throw on a floppy sun hat to really drive home that vacation look. Whatever your personal style is, you are guaranteed to turn some heads in our Lesha Maxi Dress.
Our Ebeano Set is perfect for those who are not the biggest fan of dresses but hate the idea of sweating in jean shorts. Sewn with our traditional African Silk fabric, you are sure to avoid that horrible sticky feeling. It is designed with a beautiful navy blue and burnt orange pattern that simply screams summertime because who said you have to wear a dress anyways?
For me, I would style this set by pairing a black form-fitting crop top with the silk shorts. I would leave the short sleeve top unbuttoned and layer it over the crop top. For shoes, I would throw on white sneakers to dress it down or black heels to dress it up. The best thing about this set is its versatility, so make it your own!
Saving my personal favorite for last, our Agege Kaftan! It is unlined and sewn with breathable fabric (again who wants to be sweating while trying to enjoy a sunny day?). Designed with yellow and black traditional African Ankara print, you are sure to make a statement. The completely button-down front style is perfect to show off as much (or as little) of your gorgeous figure!
If I was styling this, I would wear it as a maxi-dress to lunch or dinner at a beach-front restaurant. I would style it with dainty silver jewelry and black heels so the kaftan can truly be the star of the show. Any way you decide to style it, you will definitely make a statement in our Agege Kaftan!
