Fashion in Nigerian traditional styles is well-known among trendsetters. Nigerians, more than any other Africans, like to wear clothes in their traditional styles. Fashion in Nigeria and manufacturers of ready-made clothes continuously draw inspiration from traditional styles of clothing to create a variety of fabrics. These manufacturers often make changes to the color combinations, and form cuts in accordance with the latest fashion style.
An African style is a product of various kinds of ornaments. It could be a floral design where the flowers are clearly drawn. Nevertheless, it all depends on the designer’s level of creativity.
A unique feature of the African styles is that fabrics with a large pattern usually come in bright colors. The Ankara style is not an exception, as Nigerian fashionistas do not get tired of admiring Ankara styles. Trendy styles made with Ankara have interesting combinations of warm and cool colors in an image.
