Layered Sleeves Top, High Waisted Ankara Pants and a Gemstone Necklace





Bold is one sure way that I describe my style and every piece that makes up this look from the fabulous necklace to the cut out layered sleeves top to the Ankara pants speak to that. 

Hi guys! Hope your week was great. Today I’m reintroducing two amazing brands Takai By Angela a household name around are and Cryatalucci whose design debuted here.

Every piece from Takai is a show stopper in my book and this one is no exception. They are also versatile and can be dressed up or down. The ‘Chicago Style’ is a hand crafted gemstone and comes with a pair of matching ear rings. This piece retails for 300$ and it’s best attributes are the color, design and perfect fit on the neck. You best believe I couldn’t stop admiring it long after the shoot, Ha!

Like I said in this post here, Takai by Angela is a one stop shop for bags, shoes, fascinators and custom clothing to name a few. I’m a new kid on the block when it comes to wearing Ankara pieces so one of my favorite things to do aside from scrolling pages and pages of their fabulous jewelry is browsing the custom clothing tab of the site. Have a look for yourself! 

By the way, they have their Winter Wonderland show coming up on November 17, and that's a show not to miss!

Remember the pink layered sleeves here? Then you’d recognize the royal blue version that’s recently restocked and comes in sizes S to XL. This stand out piece fits like a glove and had me totally feeling like royalty. Retailing at 60$, this is a total steal! Be sure to stop by the site here for this as well as other fabulous pieces they offer. 

I went for a pair of high waist Ankara pants , a pair of Miumiu heels that sadly didn’t show and a black YSL clutch to finish this look.

I hope you like this look as much as I do.

  25. Bold for sure describes your style, but you wear it so well, i don´t see anything wrong with going all out. The print on the trousers is lovely, totally something I could see myself wearing. Paired down though, my style isn´t even remotely as bold as yours.

  71. Those layered sleeves are so flowy and fun Idu. I'm digging the layered sleeve trend, really ruffles anything makes me smile and gives me such a good feeling inside. Not sure what it is about it. Maybe it reminds me of my childhood and the dresses my mom used to have my sister and I wear. Not sure but, I love it! Such a great cause that you're supporting. It's magnificent that you are spreading the word!
