Adire Fabrics Are In And Ultra-Hot This Season! Check Out 16 Best Ways To Rock Them + Styling Tips


If there’s one thing that stands out with ease in the fashion industry, it’s creativity that shines through with class. Effortlessly showcasing this, adire textiles continue to revamp conventional standards of fashion in colorful ways. The traditional tie and dye fabric does this by taking basic fashion staples and transforming them into simply opulent pieces. 

With its African roots originating from the creative history of Yoruba women in southwestern Nigeria, the exquisite fabric continues to soar. However, the adire fabric is one of a few fabrics that have maintained their essence over time. Growing from its regal indigo foundation, various tinges, designs, and textures have been produced over time.

Paying homage to such tradition and versatility, Nigerian fashion brands like Matopeda by Tope Abiola king and Tolu Bally’s 2207bytbally have recently found trendy ways to uplift the adire fabric. By incorporating the ethereal textile into their contemporary collections, its value is raised further in high and modish accord. Following suit, celebrities like singer-songwriter Tiwa Savage and trendsetting influencers like Shalom Blac have recently embraced the trend.

Here are some tips on rocking the adire fabric this season…

#1. Colors and patterns

When it comes to wearing adire fabrics, a dazzling array of rainbow-inspired hues exist. Likewise, several stencils and designs have been gorgeously curated to fit into the fad. Although its indigo identity dates back to the 1960s, bright colors like red, green, and orange help modernize its appearance. As such, your adire palette can either be traditional or edgy. 

#2. Outfit choices

A fusion of personality and style comes to play to curate the perfect ensemble with this tie and dye fiber. Essentially, the vibe you’re going for matters. For instance, you can achieve an androgynous look with an adire jacket, long sleeve shirt, and pants. On the other hand, a white oversized shirt paired with an adire mini skirt would be appropriate for a fun casual attire.

#3. Accessorize with a sense of finesse 

Coupled with the intensity and texture of the dye and patterns evident on adire fabrics, its geometric nature tends to be bold. As a result, subtle jewelry items work best. Think hoop earrings, single-layered necklaces, bracelets, and rings. To kick things up a notch, footwear like strappy heels and trainers decipher a casual yet fancy tone. A miniature tote to complement adds a dainty touch to your overall look and solidifies your position as a style star or aspiring one, as the case may be. 

So if you’re looking for some African-inspired fashion trends to rock this season, look no further ’cause we’ve got you covered!
