If you have a strong affinity for formal wear then this is perfect for you.

2. Mixed print

This look on Tomike is a winner and it is not hard to see why. It is one thing to make a pretty dress with ankara but going the extra mile by mixing prints is quite something!

3. Thin strap dresses

Looking for a dress that can work for the office and also for drinks with the girls - or bae - then this is the one!

For the office, you can keep things work-appropriate by wearing a blouse underneath the thin strap midi dress as pictured below.

You can also wear a jacket over the dress or belt a blouse over it as well.

4. Lace-infused ankara dress

This is one way to keep things classy while serving boss babe vibes.

This elbow-length-sleeved dress with lace trimming is perfection redefined especially with the midi length it came in.

However, it is important to go for high-quality fabrics to avoid colours staining the white lace. Or you can opt for a different colour of the lace.

5. Solid and print

Mixing ankara fabrics with solid colours are always a winner, especially with vibrant prints like the one Ariyike has on in the photo below.

This two-piece set which comprises a long-sleeved shirt and a pair of straight pants is also a great choice for the office.

Just like the first style in this article, you can rock it differently or together as a set.

6. Statement skirts

As long as you keep the length work-appropriate, statement skirts are also a stylish look for the office.

Rocking plain ankara skirts can be boring somethings so adding a bit of an edginess to the design doesn't hurt.

Here, the fashionista pairs her lovely skirt with a long-sleeved turtleneck top.

These styles will certainly have you looking like a true fashion queen at your office!
