Ethnic Statements From Sugary Sea

The ankara accessories trend has really taken the world by storm! I hope it stays because it's an awesome thing; seeing how African fashion is affecting global fashion for the better. These accessories give such an ethnic look to whatever contemporary design you're wearing. Fellow blogger Sugary Sea adds her creativity to the fashion industry by making ankara necklaces, ruffles, earrings, headbands, and bangles. 

I especially like her necklaces because they are so statement. You can't miss them, and this adds to their appeal. No matter what you're wearing, these necklaces shout out that you are representing! Love them!

  10. You are so right, there are so many ethnic accessories out there but it creates healthy competition so I guess its a win. Good one.
