OOTD: Back to the Roots

African Skater Skirt Image

Say hello to my first outfit post in the month of April, and it is an ode to my African roots. This skater African print skirt was a gift from my mum. I wore it for the first time some days ago, and I got quite a lot of good compliments from so many people. I guess it caught so many eyes because it is a very colourful, different skirt, just what you need to see on a dull, gloomy day.

Growing up, I wore quite a lot of pieces like this skirt. In fact, half of my wardrobe would consist of african printed skirts, trousers and dresses, and I loved it. You won’t see this skirt or anything like it on the high street, which makes it even more precious.

Every now and again, I will like to mix my African pieces with my regular pieces, and create a very different look, so keep reading Fashion and Style Police, a lot of fashion and style inspiration coming your way.

I found it incredibly easy to style this custom-made skirt. I love seeing lace paired with African prints, maybe because I have seen a lot of lace African outfits over the years. I think they complement each other perfectly so I went for the look, and I think it turned out great.

I am also happy to see spring has finally sprung. How is the weather where you are?

  2. I love your custom skater African print skirt. The colours really pop, it’s perfect for Spring and I bet it makes you really stand out from the crowd.

  3. Love the colours you’ve picked. There might have been a temptation to pick a colour in the skirt but I think that might have looked a little ‘matchy matchy’

  4. I love your look. As you know I am big on colour, even in the winter, so yes I love the skirt especially. Your looking good gal
