Short dresses can be anything; flirty, dramatic, simple, edgy… name it. These kinds of dresses save us lengthy prepping time; the ‘wear and go’ kind of dress we all deserve. Recently, Rita Dominic reminded us why she’s an awesome fashionista in such a dress. The simple and short green and black dress with a plunging neckline by S.B. Youme is a sight for sore eyes. The color of the dress suits her skin tone so well that it makes an imprint in your mind. Plus, the green clutch and platform heels were the right choice to spruce up the look. 


#2. Traditional menswear

The lines continue to blur with androgynous fashion taking center stage in fashion today. One Nigerian celebrity who knows how to rock traditional menswear and womenswear effortlessly is Nancy Isime. The fashionista has never left us displeased with her fashion choices. Ever! And to prove the old saying that a woman does it better than a man, she slayed in an Agbada-(traditional Yourube menswear) dress to a Creative’s Networking Reception by the British High Commissioner.

The grey maxi number by Toju Foyeh boasted black embroidery at the chest. The sides of the master are made of sheer fabric, revealing the stunning white skirt the actress wore underneath. Typically Nigerian, Isime opted for red beads, a matching gele, and a mini bag. This is the rich Aunty you need to visit this summer for a closet raid.

#3. Gucci gang


Sporting full-on designer prints without looking like a clown is a technique worth studying, and Nigerian designer Mimi Linda Yina, aka Medlin Boss, seems to have mastered this skill. Today’s inspiration is her all-Gucci outfit featuring a monogram two-piece with matching boots and bag all in brown and caramel. Now and then, it’s a good idea to fuse over-the-top luxury with your personal style for a notable effect.

#4. Metallic greens

Toke Makinwa is arguably one of the stylish Nigerian women with a broad style palette. Last week, she opted for a graceful number that made many green with envy. Created by Lanre DaSilva, the amazingly stunning green dress with a multicolored bodice is a divine masterpiece. It featured a corset-like bodice with shades of green, yellow, blue, and orange while the skirt and sleeve, constructed from a green tulle fabric, cascade like a waterfall.

#5. Effortless sass

A sexy dress that keeps its refined status is a plus for any wardrobe. It can’t be helped. Always have a dress that borders between graceful, perhaps even modest, but with an aura of irresistible sexiness. This kind of dress was sported by Hilda Baci, world record breaker and Nigeria’s most beloved chef, last week. The square neckline Erikan number fit her fame like a glove, highlighting her hourglass figure. As a bonus, she accessorized with silver strappy heels, a mini handbag, dainty jewelry, and a beautiful face — the best of them all!

#6. (Over) Ruffled

In most girls’ closets, there’s always a dress that makes us feel overdressed; either because of its vibrant color or elaborate design. One way to tone it down, if need be, is to opt for a subtle color and let the details shine. Kiki Osibanjo did justice to this type of dress last week. Her blush, over-ruffled mini dress was both chic and edgy, flaunting swirls like a painter’s brushstroke. Her simple strappy heels and mini bag were a nice finish to the pompous look.


#7. Printastic two pieces

Jennifer Oseh, popularly known as The Lady Vhodkha, has built an Instagram page and brand that’s known for exotic and daring fashion takes. The fashion enthusiast doesn’t slack when it comes to displaying numerous ways to style prints of all calibers. This time, she slayed correctly in a striking print-blocking two-piece — a green and blue floral Ankara blouse and pants that are the embodiment of elegance.

But her outfit is just the tip of the iceberg. The accessories she rocked brought an extra layer of excitement to the ensemble. The fuchsia bag carried a high level of chicness, her pearl earrings, bead necklace, and turban brought in a dramatic twist. Finally, her heart-shaped sunglasses added a touch of playfulness. But she didn’t come to play, did she?
