We are done with plain, simple skirts and are instead going for colourful high waist kitenge skirts. Do you have several of these in your wardrobe already? If not, get some, and get as creative as you can with the design by adding some side ruffles, side pockets, a slit, etc.
Kitenge skirts take about two yards of fabric so they are affordable and you can ready-made ankara skirts too. Ready-made kitenge skirts go for as low as Ksh250 in Eastleigh and new clothes shops in Gikomba.
You can take a plain looking ankara skirt and turn it into a great outfit just by pairing it with the right top and shoes. Hence, don’t refuse those hand-me-down kitenge skirts from friends and family.
Kitenge pencil skirts are perfect for casual Friday or for offices where nobody minds about African prints.
