Let’s be honest we have all seen the basics that make up the wardrobe so many times I can’t actually keep up. Most of them are usually suited for the European weather, like why do I need boots in this hot Nigerian weather, even during the coldest season that’s hamarttan I still don’t wear boots.
I decided to compile a list I feel is more suitable for my location. Enjoy..
1. ANKARA MAXI DRESSES
You can never run away from your roots, being African & Nigerian the ankara fabric in all it’s gloriousness is worned all year round there is never a bad season for it, cold, hot, dry season it’s always there. As far as I’m concerned every black person should have a piece even if it’s a sock period.
2. NEUTRAL SCARVES
As a Muslim the scarf is an essential part of my daily life, which makes it’s way on the list. I usually go for neutral colours because it goes with every outfit, our fabrics tend to be bold and colourful so it tones it down.
5. A BLACK HANDBAG AND CLUTCH
I know the trend now is the coloured bags but trust me nothing saves the day like a black clutch or bag for an impromptu outing where you didn’t get the time to plan your outfit.
Yes yes I am a polka dot groupie it reflects in all aspect of my life I even have it on pj’s. It has the three C’s chic, classy, cool plus it’s girly what’s not to love about it see I convinced you already.
