Amazing Ankara Styles To Wear To An Occasion


If you have been recently invited to a wedding in Nigeria, there are lots of good options. From Aso Ebi to lace styles – there is a great outfit for every taste and budget. However, Ankara remains one of the most popular options for wedding guest wear. Check out 20 fresh Ankara styles you can rock to a wedding!

1. Floral Ankara Gown

The maxi length of the gown remains a classic when it comes to wedding styles. Floor-length gowns may sometimes look too severe, but you can easily add a spark to your look by choosing the right fabric, like this vibrant and colourful Ankara.

2. Family Ankara Look

If you are taking your little one as your guest to the wedding, the best idea is to rock a family look! These two Ankara outfits look adorable, age-appropriate, and simply perfect for a special occasion where you will be photographed together.

3. Asymmetric Ankara Gown

Ankara fabric is striking on its own, but when it’s paired with an unusual design of the dress, you will instantly become the best-dressed guest of the whole event!

4. Ankara Gown With A Slit

On first glance, this maxi Ankara dress looks perfectly demure. However, when you strike an elegant pose, the dress will reveal its seductive slit!


5. One-Shoulder Ankara Gown

The one-shoulder dress design was very popular in Nigeria last season, and, by the look of things, it’s not going anywhere. We also love the elegant black lace sleeves: they take the whole look to a new level of style.

6. Peplum Ankara Dress

Another timeless Nigerian classic is a peplum dress. To make your outfit stand out, even more, you can make it a plain and pattern look. The plain skirt looks simply fabulous with the striking Ankara fabric of the bodice!

7. Flared Ankara Dress

Wedding guest styles don’t have to belong to look fancy! This knee-length dress with a flared skirt is a perfect combination of sophisticated and youthful fashion, which is a great look for any party.

8. Off-Shoulder Ankara Dress

What kind of a summer wedding would it be without at least one off-shoulder dress? In addition to the trendy off-shoulder cut, this dress has another interesting feature – the clever pairing of plain purple fabric and Ankara.

9. Ankara Gown With Detachable Sleeves

If your goal is to be the most chic guest at the next wedding, consider this gorgeous outfit! The dress on its own is superb, but the stunning detachable sleeves turn it into a true work of art.

10. Ankara Gown With Floral Detailing

Perhaps, the most unusual dress on our today’s list is this beautiful Ankara gown. From the top, it’s a fairly standard wedding Ankara look. However, the bottom of the skirt and the voluminous floral detailing are definitely a sight to behold!

11. Stoned Ankara Dress

Decorating Ankara with stones is a hugely popular trend right now in Nigeria, but if you’re not feeling like using stones for the whole dress, you can do it just along the neckline for the same cute effect.

12. Halter Ankara Dress

There are so many things to love about this look: the lovely combination of orange and purple, the fashionable halter neckline design, and, of course, the see-through mesh purse!

13. Ankara Dress With Mesh Sleeves

The short length of this dress is great for younger fashionistas, but the black mesh sleeves make the gown appropriate for any age.

14. Blue And Pink Ankara Gown

The design of this dress is fairly straightforward, but the feather detailing on the bodice and the lovely Ankara pattern make it much more memorable.

15. Long-Sleeve Ankara Gown

The neckline design of this Ankara dress, which is covered in stones and suspended on mesh, is one of the most innovative things we’ve seen in the Nigerian fashion scene this year.

16. Ankara Jumpsuit

While gowns are the most common choice of a wedding guest outfit, there is nothing keeping you from wearing an Ankara jumpsuit. And this jumpsuit with a double peplum is a very good option!

17. Ankara Trouser Suit

Another unconventional choice of a wedding Ankara outfit is a trouser suit. The playful mix and match design and the peplum make it clear that it’s not just an office look!

18. Ankara Aso Ebi

If you want to get the best of both worlds with your wedding guest look, consider pairing the traditional Aso Ebi design with your favourite Ankara pattern.

19. Pencil Ankara Gown

Highlight your slim figure and curves with a tight-fitting Ankara dress. Plus, the unusual neckline will attract everyone’s attention even more!

20. Plain And Pattern Ankara Dress

The highly contrasted dress design remains one of the favourites for Nigerian fashionistas. The white Ankara and plain black sleeves look incredibly elegant!
