I love jackets and blazers but unfortunately we don’t have the weather for it here in Nigeria because it’s mostly warm or hot days and the cold doesn’t really call for the heavy pieces but during the harmattan and cool summer days this can be worn because it’s lighter than the usual jacket.
This is the Afro Chic jacket from my 2015 Collection where i showcased at Abuja Fashion Week, i styled it on the model with ripped jeans to give it that edgy look i love.
The second look i create was over our tribal print dress to show there is nothing like too much print if it’s done right.
The third look a friend of mine Zainab bought a pair and sent me a picture of how she styled it, I love how she did it because it further shows the versatility of the jacket from modest to vampy depending on how you feel.
So what do you guys think any wonderful styling tips i can try out will love to hear your suggestions.
Today it’s Simi’s turn, i actually heard the name loved it and decided to honor it with a lovely piece hence the birth of Simi.
Simi is a high waisted skirt with pockets and a high low hem which gives it that simple edgy look i love so much without trying so hard.
Someone commented on my last post about pairing trendy pieces for the office with a white crisp button down which i love so i decided to pair the Simi skirt and i loved the effect, what do you guys think any major suggestions?
Disclaimer only the skirt is mine.
Today i decided to feature a piece from my brand Holma Designs, it’s our Ankara skirt with leather details how gorgeous is the print?
I decided to create a style around the skirt so i opted for a lace crop top because of how delicate it is, a black pump and clutch bag to give it that effortless chic look.
Disclaimer . Only the skirt is mine.
What do you think is the best way to style the skirt?
1. CAROLINA HERRERA
C.H was one of the first designers i googled when i got into fashion, her style is feminine yet chic even with all the crazy trends around she always finds subtle ways to incorporate trends while still maintaining that elegant look. Her instagram page usually contains pictures of her gowns & dresses, handbags and shoes which is a major part of the brand. If you love clean elegant looks this is the page for you.
2. ZAC POSEN
Zac Posen’s page is the ultimate fashion lovers guide, he posts pictures of his design studio, workers and what he is currently working on thus giving fans an idea of how he works. He also post pictures of things he finds inspiring and cooks from time to time. My favourite is the pictures of the lovely ladies rocking his signature gowns during fittings and the quirky pictures that comes with it.He loves nature and flowers as evident on his page.
Gucci is vibrant, Gucci is Italian, Gucci is prints and patterns alot of there pieces are quirky with bohemian vibes, along with a lot of patterned dresses and menswear.
