Dresses made in the Arewa style are known for being humble, elegant, and culturally significant. Here are some nice and eye-catching Arewa Ankara styles for Muslim women:
Kaftan costumes: Choices include Ankara-made kaftan dresses that are long and flowy. Wearing these dresses will show off the beautiful prints and designs of Ankara because they are loose-fitting.
Designs inspired by the abaya: Bring the traditional Abaya shape into your Ankara clothes. With Ankara fabric embellishments on the sleeves, near the hemline, or as a belt, choose patterns that are flowy and loose-fitting so that they cover you completely.
Wearing an Ankara-fabric H-line maxi skirt with a loose-fitting blouse or tunic is a simple and basic look. Dressing modestly while showing off the bright Ankara print is possible with this color mix.
Layered long coats: Choose Ankara-made long jackets with layers. For example, you can wear these coats over a fitted top, with pants, or with a long skirt. Beautiful and modest, they're great for Muslim women.
Arewa Ankara outfits aren't complete without a stylish headwrap, or gele. Gele is a popular choice in Nigeria. To match your Ankara outfit, you can try playing around with different styles and colors.
As always, humility is a personal choice that can be different for each person. Picking styles that fit your personal taste while also honoring national and religious practices is important.
