Why Wear Ankara Long Gowns?
These frocks are super stylish dresses. Although, there was a period maxi dresses left the fashion scene, their return only proves that they really are important staples.
Once I had this friend who always felt totally uncomfortable in long dresses. According to her, God gave her a beautiful figure, so why should she hide everything up in her clothing?
I tried to make her understand that though long dresses cover you up, they still flaunt your body if you’d let them. So, I asked her to give it a shot by sewing a long dress with an Ankara fabric. Then I picked one of the styles you’re about to see here for her. She took it to her seamstress and boom! With the way it looked on her, she almost swore never to wear short dresses again.
That’s not even possible. She only fell in love with maxi gowns and never hesitates to wear one when the occasion calls for it.
