Lagos Lately: 7 Impressive Fashion Takes Spotted On Nigerian Style Stars



tyle is what you make of it. While some prefer loud announcements of bold and daring takes, others love to sport quiet and compelling looks. And none is superior to the other. Simply put, as our faces differ, so does our style. We can see this fact evident in the style choices of Nigerian celebrities and influencers who indulge in every facet of the fashion spectrum. The play? Bold prints, neutral tones, asymmetric silhouettes, and traditional formations with modern touches.

Check out the top looks seen on Nigerian celebrities and influencers…

#1. Khaki frocks

The khaki in all its renditions is a cool option that gives value all year round. Nigerian actress Adesua Etomi-Wellington traded in her regular fits for a button-down khaki dress that understands seasons and times. This is an understated piece that sets things straight amid loud prints and complicated silhouettes. It’s an easy way to remain stylish even on days off.

#2. Color blocking

Actress Ini Dima Okojie understands how to create a striking look with minimal effort. And this Derin Fabikun color-block mini dress is the perfect result of spinning the color wheel correctly. This high-contrast look is the best bet for a vast lineup of events. You can rock it to a cocktail party or be the perfect neck-breaking wedding guest. Your call.


#3. Black and white magic

Even in a time when eclectic tastes have become mainstream, the basics still stand in a class of their own. A black-and-white duo will always be a testament to great style. Style influencer Olivia Arukwe applied this veteran combo to use, and the result was a stylish boomerang. The Zara jacket and LFJ pants were a well-coordinated casual pair that keyed in authenticity. You can take a break from dopamine dressing and rock this ageless hue combo that transcends seasons.

#4. Ankara stays thriving

Ankara prints have been serving Nigerian fashionistas and the entire world for decades without flinching. And it is still one of the trendiest prints available in our time. Lilian Afegbai in this simple and sophisticated Kome Osalor Ankara form-fitting dress preaches the gospel of less is more. Also, a headwrap can cover more bad hair days in less time than most hair products. Always have one in your corner. And it’s safe to say I’m a staunch believer.

#5. Utilitarian fits

One thing is sure, pockets can give one an emotional attachment to a piece. For example, it’s easy to love those pants with extra pockets because you could sneak in some treats and other essentials. And apart from its utilitarian purpose, pockets are everywhere. From high-end runway finds to elevated streetwear, there will always be more room for pocket-friendly ensembles. Nigerian designer Tolu Bally opted for a relaxed, pocketed neutral-tone getup that projected quiet luxury. One way to ensure these minimal looks never get boring is to play around with accessories, and of course, Ms. Bally nailed it. The denim Alexander Wang handbag and Tom Ford sunglasses need a raise at this point.


#6. Pumped layers

Stylish and comfortable are the features your airport looks must always have. Nancy Isime was spotted at the airport in an outfit that stayed true to both themes. A crop top, breezy pants, and an oversize scarf for when it gets chilly. She also kept the hues in a symphony. That’s how you take a trip – looking like a bag of money. 

#7. A ruched bodycon

Fashion influencer and entrepreneur Nonye Udeogu in this dress is what “Summer Ready” should look like. If you’re packing your bags for a summer vacation, remember to make space for this beauty. It accentuates any figure, and its mood-boosting colors will keep the spirits up.
