While the whole world has moved on from one weather season to another, the harmattan in Nigeria has refused to show up (taking her precious time as usual). While she decides if she would let the rain or sun usher her in, we can’t be slacking on our style.
The one piece I recommend to have in your wardrobe is… (Drum rolls)…. SEQUINS!!!!
Yes! Sequins have proved themselves to be a holiday favorite year after year and this year is surely no different. They are definitely what we need to end the year and begin the next decade on a sparkly platter of dopeness. So shine your way through the indecisive weather and into the heart of fashion.
I’m going to be showing you in this post how to style your sequin wears for 3 different looks;
1. HAPPY HOUR
While the weather is confused, we are very certain that we are going to be hanging out, clubbing and socializing until we are forced to add Vaseline as an accessory in all our bags (and even then). Sequined wears can be fun, sexy and super chic.
STYLE TIP: Go bold and loud with your accessories and make-up.
2. DINNER TIME
This is the season to definitely let our party animal spirit shine through. There will be a lot of Owambe and ‘formal’ gatherings or just the usual get together with friends and cousins that you might have been too busy or broke to see. Slay with a well put together sequin look that is just right.
STYLE TIP: Go for a full on sequin dress with minimal make-up and accessories.
3. BUSINESS AND BUSINESS EVENTS
Hold your horses! Now, I’m well aware that while a lot of us have fun stuffs planned this holiday, some of us are still stuck in work and work meetings and all things formal. Here is to make sure you get on the trend bus and stand out while sitting pretty. Slay! With both shinny ideas and outfits.
STYLE TIP: Mix a sequence wear with your staple office gear, a white shirt, blazer or pumps.
Make fashion statements with your hair, hair clips, bags and earrings. Pearls steel and Sparkle!
