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.
One of the new trend everywhere is the cold and off shoulder look which I got really into last year when it began to appear on the runway and it’s now in full bloom.
To be honest i never really liked it mainly because i always thought how do you pull it off without a bra then i discovered strapless bras but i still wasn’t sold on it, we Africans mainly Nigerians are fully blessed upfront and trust me only a sturdy bra to pack those babies is the the only language i understand. Anyways it grew on me and i love the little cuts on some designs it gives it that edgy sexiness which is my favorite.
Here are a few looks i love and will definitely rock them given the chance.
What are your thoughts on this trend love it or hate it..
The new spring couture 2016 season just ended in Paris and the first designer to show case is Donatella Versace and she wasn’t one to disappoint her clientele.
There was the signature cutouts, thigh high slits, minis and much more. One of the most interesting details is the use of knots in various intricate details in the pieces which gives it that Versace edge the brand is well known for.
Personally the collection is not my kind of style but i can’t ignore the time and creativity that goes into making the collection and i also love the colours bravo..
I know the London fashion week has come and gone but the effect is still around. I was watching the fashion TV network yesterday and i saw Jonathan Sunders collection on the runway I fell in love with it immediately.
The flow of Chiffons in different colours and prints, the mix and match gave it such an ethereal feel to it, the use of colour blocking was just perfection because it correlated so well.
This is what spring designs should look like free, flowy and liberating. You can check out the rest of the collection on http://www.style.com.
