What beats looking very well put together with little or no effort? Welcome to the world of "effortless chic" wearing a spaghetti strap blouse on an African print skirt. This is a staple in most women's wardrobe especially the black or white color ones. Spaghetti strap blouses work perfectly with most types of clothing. Rocking your African print skirt with a plain colored spaghetti strap is an absolute style spice. It is perfect for a casual and formal look depending on your accessories.

If you bought an African print skirt with its matching top (co-ords or matching separates), hey, there's nothing wrong in rocking the set when ever you feel like it. After all, two is better than one and most importantly, minimal brainpower is expended in choosing what to wear. (It is a chore for most of us to choose what to wear in a jiffy and be pleased. How you rock your African print skirt set depends on the right shoes, bag and jewelry - they will make or break your look. Since African print fabrics are sort of loud, it is advisable to use plain colored accessories to discourage an unnecessary cacophony of colors.                              

The T-Shirt

A million rounds of applause to whoever invented the T-Shirt. For real! What would we do without this fashion oxygen? They are your go-to for a low key vibe or a dressy, casual look. Tucking your t-shirt into your African print skirt does wonders for your silhouette and style. You will either look like the Belle of the ball in your African print skirt or an undeniable fashionista in your midi skirt.  Fortunately, a lot of Oludan skirts come with a thick waist band that streamlines the wearer's waist. So, if you want comfort and fashion in a swoop, you cannot go wrong with this combination.                            

Long Sleeve Top
