Ankara Work Style: Ankara and linen

Thursday, 3 May 2018

Design for love (DFL) sent me some ankara pieces, one of which is this very beautiful ankara set i.e. sleeveless ankara dress and linen blouse as part of their campaign to encourage ladies to incorporate ankara into work/office fashion.


DFL prides themselves as a fashion house that stocks super chic female apparel and accessories that reflect the african heritage while still being contemporary.


 Design for love (DFL) started in 2004 by Wunmi Olufeko, and it was borne out of her desire to infuse her love for arts into designing classy outfits for women. DFL’s brand philosophy is classy-elegance; the DFL woman is an understated beauty, who does not need to try hard to catch attention.

DFL specializes in bespoke/ made to measure female garments and works mostly with Ankara incorporated with other more contemporary fabrics like silks, laces and taffetas to create that “wow effect”. Each outfit is a unique work of art that tells its own story.

If you follow me on instagram you  will know that I am a sucker for ankara and love to wear them to work.I have recently set Wednesdays as my ankara to work day with the hashtag #ankaraworkstyle (you should totally follow me on instagram @opeyemisdiary


I styled the set with black accessories as it already makes a statement and I did not want to take anything away from it.

Caught napping----hehehehe

  There are several possibilities of styling this set and I will be exploring and showing them to you so please sign up to get updates as you will get notified immediately there is a new post.
