Photos of 'Skinny girl in transit' actress Sharon Ooja rocking Ankara outfits with class.

29 years old Sharon Ooja, an actress from Benue state who became very popular on set because of her role in the movie Skinny girl in transit, where she played the character "Shalewa". She has also played roles in some other movies like "King of boys" "Lara and the beat" "Coming from insanity" "Men's club" "Bling lagosians" and she has been making waves on social media because of her scintillating and classic sense of style, the actress has been known to love putting on native attires especially ankara, and so I made a collection of some of her pictures rocking these outfits for we the ankara lovers. They are generally simple yet classy styles any fashion designer with good taste can recreate to make you look extra peng for any occasion.

Disclaimer: These images are for illustrative purposes only.

The half and half asymmetrical combination of ankara and English material just brings a different sense of style and complements her slim stature.Just take a look at the class and sophistication she brings, without having to show too much cleavage or trying too hard, the amount of skin revealed is just neutral and balanced.Who says slim people cannot slay, the style is a combinarion of two different ankara designs, and the high neck of the gown gives no reason to use any jewelry apart from earrings.This outfit is so simple yet unique, and the pairing with a hair bow makes her look 'fire' without looking like she's too uptight, its just the perfect girly girl outfit you can wear virtually anywhere and fit in.

At this point, you would see that a huge part of her sense of styling includes pairing different types of ankara patterns together, just make sure the patterns are either a contrast or contain very similar colors to each other and you are moving in the right direction of colour cascading. It is a great look.

The two different ankara used in this outfit are not particularly contrasted, but they are similar enough to work together to give a signature style. Sometimes fashion can be hardwork and common sense.

The designer completely cut out the original design in this outfit to make her own unique pattern, it will take focus and hardwork to replicate. Note that when wearing outfits with stripes, horizontal lines complement the hips better for slim people, and vertical lines makes you look slimmer and elongated if you are on the big side, so it is in your best interest to choose the one you'd prefer.

This is a simple yet elegant outfit for casual occasions that will make you stand out while also fitting in.

Everyone looks like royalty in Royal blue, it's just a rule that has not been dispproved since time immemorial.

Even her beach outfit is made with ankara. Fabulous, yet not revealing too much.

Who says you can't look beautiful in long flared gowns, well Sharon Ooja obviously begs to differ.

Here are her other outfits in native attire that are not necessarily Ankara but equally beautiful.


Ankara is our culture, let's always embrace the cultural value and allure it brings when it is adorned.
