Free Ankara short gown styles

cold shoulder

Most of the free Ankara styles we have come across are rather short (slightly above the knee), so we have decided to start with this category first. And what better gown to begin with than this one. This is one of the latest Ankara styles these days, with its cold shoulder and peplum neckline. The lacy top part of the dress is a great contrast to the vibrant pattern of the Ankara fabric, and the two work together well.

Next, we have something a little bit more subdued. The short sleeves and the collar remind us of a school uniform, so if you want to feel young again, try this one! :) The Ankara pattern is not quite as colourful as most similar patterns are, which makes this dress stand out from the rest. Therefore, if you just want a nice dress that will not make you look like you are begging for attention, this would be a great choice.


Here is another great option for those who want a flowy but short Ankara dress. It can easily hide any of your insecurities and make you feel more confident in your look. And if you are an expectant mommy, you can go for something like this, because it will cut into your belly, so you can feel both comfortable and stylish. Regardless of the circumstances, with this dress, you will not have to choose between style and comfort.
