Y’all know that we don’t play with street style observing on this blog. Roaming through Fashion Weekend, breathing in everyone’s sense of individuality is more than enough inspo for ideas, and it of course provides a rush of dopamine to get through any hard task you have at hand.
For some reason, I feel like fashion weekend is more low key than Lagos Fashion Week in terms of street style. And I think this is probably because the audiences are different. LFW caters to Fashionistas at the core, who would probably wear super stylish pieces on a work day anyway, while Fashion Weekend seems to cater to a family day out on a weekend-family people wanting to chillax with their loved ones at a great show. GT also seeks to empower small scale businesses. At the end of the day, both shows seek to empower the Nigerian fashion industry, and that is very dear to my heart.
Anyway, this year, I feel like GT Fashion Weekend Street Style was a bit more high key. Oh, did I mention I cried? Check that out here.
Now to the matter of the day, street style for your viewing pleasure:)
I love Eku’s dress, with the bubbly sleeves. These sleeves are really in right now. I might like the dress even longer, so long as it can retain the effect of the bubble where it stops.
I have a soft spot for tunics, because I am at a point in my life where I’d rather have clothes that do not require ironing. Right now, life is too busy to be ironing. Lol. So, a tunic is an easy wear.
I love the hair and the jewelry. It’s just really cool.
Have I mentioned that Derin from Isale Eko’ s style is amazing? Cuz it is. It has this effortless quality. She also has an eye for unique pieces. Loving the shirt, shorts, shoes and bag. Check her outfit from last year.
I feel like this guy is my winner for street style. His outfit is so original. I think I remember him from last year as well. There’s so much thought that has gone on into this outfit and I love it.
Talk about individuality, I’m loving the burgundy suit, the plaid shirt and hat.
Bt-dubs: I say hat; I don’t like to say ‘cap.’
Patterned pants are always a win, whether Ankara, geometric or the quintessential yoga pant, you’ll make a fashionista impression.
A Kamsi TCharles impression.
I love the creativity with these plain and patterened suits, paired with sneakers. Just smacking!
These outfits were created by the Kamsi TCharles brand.
And let’s not leave pretty fazes out of this suit wearing spree;)
