Fashion lover, presenter, blogger and consultant Denola Grey remains one of the most stylish influencers on the Nigerian fashion scene. His versatile and trendy style has consistently put him on top of the list of the best-dressed men. Being on top of his game means he is doing something right and so here are five style lessons to be learned from observing the style connoisseur, Denola Grey.
1. Shorts are your friend…
Denola’s ability to go from dapper to casual is so seamless. He has a knack for knowing when to pull out shorts to show off his legs and how to pair them with the perfect top and accessories.
2. Up your neck accessories game
Your neck accessories are one of the most subtle but powerful ways to upgrade an outfit from 0 to 100! From necklaces to scarves, Denola knows how to take a basic outfit to premium. And it this is one style hack to practice daily.
3. Go trad all the way
Ah, Denola! One thing I love about Denola is when he does something he goes all the way! Especially when it comes to traditional outfits, he serves traditional style inspiration so hard. While it’s now acceptable to style traditional wears with western pieces, Denola Grey shows that styling a full-blown trad outfit is a perfect way to make a style statement.
4. Drape your jacket over your shoulders like the cool kids
One way to appear like a cool kid if you already aren’t one is to wear your denim or blazer jacket on your shoulders like a cape. It seems to be a signature look of Denola and we totally love it!
5. The future is retro
We know that all things retro are in vogue. With the ’90s and ’80s fashion coming back to serve the fiercest of looks, Denola Grey has been giving us the style inspiration and push we need to work this trend.
