Anglo Nubia: African Inspired Tribal Print Designer Fashion

Of course there’s your typical ASOS, H&M & Net-A-Porter for daily fashion needs but once in a while an online outlet sweeps you off your feet with their individuality and uniqueness and this time it’s Anglo Nubia

It’s an upcoming online portal specialising in African inspired fashion which has been translated onto the clothes and accessories in a modern and wearable manner. If you’re tired of the Aztec prints and bright neon that has taken over all stores these days, you’ll love Anglo Nubia’s refreshing selection of runway inspired fashion that has it roots grounded in ethnic tribal fashion from Africa. 

The prints on the dresses in particular are undoubtedly large, fierce and quirky as you would expect from an African inspired clothing outlet. I also love how the dresses and accessories are unapologetically different not only in prints but also regarding their cut and style compared to what you may have seen on the high street or departmental stores in UK. Although the prints and designs are bold, the cut and style of their dresses are rather elegant and mature in my opinion.

I personally have my eyes glued to the coral zip full front zip dress which is uber chic and on-trend for day time wear in the Summer and the Melissa Dress by Jesique Designs which is the complete opposite and a casual evening number. The mustard and brown combination have always appealed to me and the full gathers, knee length and three quarter sleeves make it look so doll like and retro!

Have you ever felt Summer is the perfect time to express your personal style with accessories? Sure Winter boots and chunky scarves have their own special place in our British hearts but less layers in the warmer months automatically means there's more accessories on display and we can effortlessly flaunt them in their full glory.

If you're someone who likes to keep it toned down, go muted or classic with clothing, jazz it up with Anglo Nubia's statement  Ribbon necklace, their eye catching animal print bangle which is drool-worthy or even better, a pair of their east meets west sky scraper heels. I love how the tribal print gradually meets with the hot pink contrast peep toe, giving it character whilst keeping it fresh, modern and versatile to sport with a little black dress.

Basically if you love to flaunt niche designer brands and don't want to end up wearing the same dress as your colleague at a party (you know it's happened to you before!), Anglo Nubia is the perfect online outlet to grab yourself a truly unique and inspirational wardrobe from global designers that take inspiration from the African culture. Be warned though, you will see a lot of animal prints, tribal patterns, bright colours and bold designs so unless fashion is second nature to you, you will need a brave heart to pull it off.

Don't forget to 'like' them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter for the latest arrivals to their store just in time for the festival and holiday season.
