Heading back to the office after spending the summer laying on a beach or sipping cocktails by a swimming pool can be a little challenging. The brand Sika'a offers a range of sustainable, casual women’s workwear to refresh your wardrobe for the coming season.
During the last month of summer, transitional outfits are a popular choice to take us into autumn. They are breathable when the sun comes out to play and will keep you warm enough if the temperature drops. The latest Sika'a collection features a range of stylish workwear for your back-to-work wardrobe, including transitional pieces such as African print blouses, workwear skirts, dresses, trousers and power suits. If you're looking for workwear outside the mainstream, Sika'a styles offer you an opportunity to be innovative, evolve your style and add a dash of colour to your working wardrobe.
Sika'a was founded by John Tchoudi, an emerging UK-based designer who is on a mission to change how the world views African fashion. Two years ago, his love of African fabrics inspired him to launch Sika'a to showcase authentic African luxury womenswear and represent the culture, heritage and colours of the continent in a true light. Sika'a, which means "God's will" in Bamileke, the language of Tchoudi's homeland in West Cameroon, prides itself on crafting sustainable, exquisitely handmade African garments for the modern woman.
Sika'a garments are designed to make women feel glamorous and can be easily mixed and matched with your existing wardrobe faves for a myriad of different looks. Need a fresh outfit for work in the morning? No problem; a piece from Sika'a will have heads turning in the office.
With Sika'a, workwear doesn't have to be boring. The label offers a range of stylish pieces that strike the perfect balance between effortlessly chic and empowering. The collection includes a line of elegant Ankara designs; wax print introduced to West Africa by Dutch traders in the 19th century, which has since become synonymous with African fashion. Sika'a also offers stylish monochrome work blazers and trousers for your autumn wardrobe that evoke power and authority.
