“The best fashion show is definitely on the street. Always has been and always will be – Bill Cunningham.
Lagos Fashion and Design Week has finally begun. I remember hearing about it for the first time last year and the funny things is I actually didn’t hear so much about the main show. The only time I caught a glimpse of the actual runway show was on Ifeoma’s s blog.
Street style fashion is basically what everyone looks forward to cos that’s where you’re seen and heard, so you need to bring your A game. In this post I’ve highlighted some points that would help you get noticed by the paparazzi.
Trust me when I say you can never go wrong with statement shoes. They can be heels, sandals, wedges, trainers/sneakers or even flats, as long as their unconventional you’re on the right track baby.
This is basically adding something extra to complement your shoe game. It could be a pair of stripy socks, a sheer/fishnet ankle socks, a pantyhose or even a plain pair of socks that matches your shoe to give an illusion effect. We’re all about the statement remember.
Nature of Fabric/Pattern of Fabric
It’s no news that the statement sleeves and pajama outfits we all are crazy about this year was birthed from the Street style fashion of last years edition of worldwide fashion week. The choice of Fabric and pattern will determine what will be a trend in the coming year, so style wisely.
Because you want to be seen and given a second look you can not be basic! Colors that no one thought about should be your goal, this doesn’t mean you should dress as a clown (well except it’s a gangster clown). Be bold with your color choices and if I’m not mistaken bold colors (Orange, Yellow, mustard) seems to be making a big hit in the melanin community.
No matter how peng your outfit is, if you don’t own it then it might as well be basic. If you end up wearing a pair of jeans and tee then you’ve got to strut like you’re wearing damn Guccis!
If you follow me on IG you’d know I’ve been loving the cut out boot shoes and I don’t see any reason why they can’t be slayed here. I paired mine with a pair of fishnets to give it that extra oomph. I’ve always loved curduroys and the fact that they aren’t as common as they used to be makes me love em more. Who woulda thunk that purple, white and brown would go well together like peanut butter, jam and bread (a snack right!)
I completed this Look with a cute black bag and a pair of matching shades.
