Here are 10 chic chic ladies African wear inspired looks as seen on Martha Ankomah

Ballroom Inspired?

This ballroom inspired two-piece OOTD makes Martha a timeless beauty. Hair pulled back with little to no accessories is the best way to rock this outfit.

Beaded One Sleeve

Martha brings the Sunday heat with this outfit. A string beaded sleeve with red in the mix? How can it not be hot?

Pagoda Shouldered Sunday

Haute across board. Martha serves us with something novel with her pointy shouldered Sunday garb. With a point-making dress like this, no one needs to point out the obvious chic of it.

Open Shouldered Damsel

Simple yet elegant. This open-shoulder piece with the ruffles gives us fashion wings.

Feeling Blue

We adore the cool colour of GTP’s wax print and adore even more the entire look. High ponytail, face card, string shoulders and the tapered bottom that ends in ruffles is an African wear look that’s served like a cool glass of water.

Dress and accessory

It’s the kinky hair and bright red bead accesories for us.

Dainty African wear

This is an African wear garden party look right here. All it needs is a wide-brimmed hat, some shades and some pearls and you’re the brunch appetiser.

African Wear Fashion Mod

This 1950’s Mod inspired look is a girly African wear inspired look that Martha’s petite frame makes all the more exquisite.

Slit Skirted

We appreciate legs here and this outfit’s slit gives us ample portion while staying modest with it. Love.

Wing Crest African Wear

Red seems to be a favourite colour with Martha’s Sunday OOTDs and seeing this look we understand why. The auburn highlights in her hair, the red lace crest and the shoes come together into a timeless African wear serve.
