The girl-of-the-moment captivated me by the meticulously crafted embellished bodice of this sleek column dress. I also love how the lean, clean-lined silhouette presents a modern and sophisticated look. (Not that hair though)

MENSWEAR MUST-HAVES: BURGUNDY

OK guys! If you haven’t heard by now, burgundy has been HUGE this season. 

Sitting somewhere between versatile neutral and statement color, the rich hue is not only a formal favorite, but a key casual wardrobe color as well. The runways were awash with burgundy, with models seen in everything from sporty parkas and knitted scarves to loose-fitting two-piece suits.

Next to the two timeless colors Black and White, Gray is now present more than ever. However, Burgundy is the ‘master color’ this season.

I was totally seduced by the show-stopping Monique Lhuillier purple Asymmetric gown with silver accessories.

TOP 4 ICONIC WOMEN IN TUXEDOS

wpid-fe1dfde53f3c85d716056d2e42b5b3e3.jpgThis image made me aware of the power of dressing.. and the power of a beautifully cut jacket being one of the foundations pieces if not THE foundation piece of any wardrobe.

When asked why a tuxedo jacket rather than a blazer? Tuxedos are glamorous and worn at celebratory and glamorous times. There is a nostalgia about them, and a tuxedo re-invented for a woman is a power jacket whether worn over jeans or as a full-blown tux suit. It is a powerful dressing tool. Here is my collection of the most iconic women in the boundary-pushing classic. 

1.  Bianca Jagger

wpid-20151115_015306.pngStyle icon, Bianca Jagger wears a classic double-breasted white tuxedo with wide-leg pants as she and her daughter Jade walk across the street in London, May 4, 1979.

  2.  Kate Moss

wpid-20151113_215834.pngOpting for slimmer silhouettes. Kate Moss revive the tuxedo in the early noughties with pencil leg pants and a cropped tuxedo jacket giving this look a youthful and sexy update.

  3.  Angelina Jolie

wpid-20151113_215722.pngAngelina Jolie hit the red carpet for the 2015 BAFTA’s with her partner Brad Pitt wearing coordinating ‘His n Hers’ tuxedos. Angelina looked eminently sophisticated finishing the look with classic patent pumps and undone bow tie, that created a feel of nonchalant elegance.

  4.  Janelle Monae

wpid-20151113_215614.png

The tuxedo is as much part of Janelle Monae’s persona as her music. Janelle has made this black tie look her style signature, often playing with cuts and lengths of these iconic pieces to reinvent her look.

STYLE MISTAKES THAT MAKE YOU LOOK OLDER

As our age creeps up and gravity takes its toll, the fashions that we once lived in may not be as comfortable or as forgiving as they once were. As our bodies continue to change some of us continue to squeeze into the same clothes, while others start believing that those faux pas fashions we swore we would never wear, really aren’t a stereotype of aging we thought they were in our 20’s. Fortunately there are some easy ways to look younger without going overboard.

  • YOU’VE CHOSEN THE WRONG  GLASSES                                                                                       wpid-images-16.jpegwpid-photogrid_1447106081362.jpg The face is our first card. If you need to wear glasses, do not buy the first pair of frames that comes your way. The price must not be the first argument for choosing a frame, but the way you look with glasses. Study fashion magazines and see what glasses models fit your physiognomy. Do not avoid bolder frames. Do not hide your eyes! 
  • DRESS AGE APPROPRIATELY                                                                                                            wpid-images-18.jpegWhile your legs and stomach may still look great, flaunting them in mini skirts and open midriffs will draw attention to your age. Although stylish dressing is one sure way of looking younger, dressing like a teenager will have the opposite effect. Draw attention to your best features with chic instead of flaunt.
  • WATCH OUT FOR STUMPY SHOES                                                                                                             wpid-20151109_223159.pngwpid-20151109_223303.png                                  Platforms are still popular, but not necessarily a good choice for you if you passed 30 years and 60kg. choose slim variant for your shoes (When in doubt, a 1 – 2-inch heel can give you the look without the displeasure).
  • DRESS YOUR SIZE                                                                                                                                wpid-photogrid_1447106210629.jpgClothing that is too big will make you look frumpy, while clothing that is too small will show any extra ‘flesh’ (pounds) you may be trying to hide. Buy items to fit the largest part of your body, then have them altered to fit the smaller areas.
  • SCARVES                                                                                                                                             wpid-20151109_223044.pngwpid-images-33.jpegwpid-images-27.jpegYou seem really cool wearing a silk scarf around your neck, but apart from the fact that you look like a stewardess in the 60s, this is a fixed accessory for the 60s. A scarf can be cool, but instead of wearing it on the neck, you can connect it to your bag handles (contrasting color) or you can turn it into a silk bracelet. Also beware of small brooches worn on the lapel. If you are a fan of brooches, choose some oversized ones and use it to complete a jacket or a skirt.

Whether we like it or not, the choices we make will have an impact on how we are seen and ultimately how we will feel. Aging doesn’t have to mean dated or old. Balancing comfort with fashion will ensure that you continue to appear youthful and stylish.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OUTFIT LOOK EXPENSIVE AND FASHIONABLE


Have you ever thought about ways to make your outfit look more expensive? I’m not talking about spending more money (obviously that would make you look and feel more expensive) but more about small things you can do that will make your clothes look ‘designer’, wherever you bought them from. But let’s face it: The average Nigerian woman/man isn’t spending a cool #100,000 – #300,000 on a  pair of Christian Louboutin/Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.

Here I’ve gathered some tried  – true tips to making your clothes look luxe, and even when they aren’t. Some might seem obvious (but require going extra mile), while others are a testament to us being best privy to the best-dressed women/men on a daily basis. It’s not rocket science, but it certainly commands your attention.

  • GET IT TAILORED                      wpid-images-8.jpegwpid-images-12.jpegTaking the extra two days from purchase to have your neighborhood tailor nip and tuck your latest great find, versus ripping the tags off and wearing right away will elevate the final product way beyond its original price tag.
  • MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS FRESHLY PRESSED           wpid-images-10.jpegwpid-aix5zmhlp3xauihxdgkq0ln-c666-gub-t_5mlco_ydtl6hwdnzsp1foqb8wee98tr4qhtrjc-g5zsaocnano1t77k1yq0m8hivvznd6c8lercloaq_st_nh8gn7q3okhvvhav6-ysogkb_vxymkw236-h314-nc.jpeg.jpegThis seems like something your mother would say and we all know time in the morning is precious. Taking extra five minutes to steam or press your clothes will add instant polish to even your most worn-in-wardrobe MVPs.
  • ADD GOLD ACCESSORIES                                                    wpid-images-15.jpegThere is just something about structural, gilded extras – whether a bag or jewelry or both – that make you look like you stepped out of the page of a magazine.
  • DRESS IN A TONAL COLOURS LIKE ALL WHITE OR ALL BLACK                                                                              wpid-images-26.jpegwpid-images-20.jpegNot only is it incredibly elongating, but a monochrome outfit always looks intentional and put together. (Tip: Just make sure your whites are bright and your blacks match.)
  • BEAUTY MATTERS. POLISHED HAIR AND MAKEUP ELEVATE ANY LOOK.                                    wpid-20151107_235753.pngSleek blowout, red lips, flawless skin – these are the ultimate finishing touches.
  • KEEP HANDBAGS SHINY AND CLEAN                                                                                              wpid-images-29.jpegwpid-images-21.jpegUse ‘windex’ on patent leather, unscented body lotion on all other leather, re-stuff easily malleable shapes when storing and always, always pack your purses in dust bags when traveling.
  • DRESS UP YOUR DENIM                                                                                                                      wpid-c360_2015-05-18-19-43-51-128.jpgI absolutely love jeans. Just make sure you always add heels and keep the silhouettes and washes classic.
  • BELT YOUR JACKET                                                                   wpid-images-17.jpegGive your jacket an instant lift with a simple cinch around the waist.

Whether your monthly clothing budget is #10,000, #100,000, or #1,000,000, the old saying is true: “Fashion fades, but style is eternal”. Don’t let a small clothing budget fool you into thinking you’re not stylish. By paying attention to the quality of even your clearance rack finds, you can make sure that your clothes last, look great, and most importantly, make you feel like a million bucks when you wear them.

HERE ARE MY LAGOS FASHION & DESIGN WEEK (LFDW 2015) FAVORITES

Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2015 ended on Saturday (31st Oct) and I am still reeling from the hangover. Those Models, those Designers and oh, that Haute Couture? Who can get over that?

Elegance, Glamour, Sophistication. All these words are synonymous with ‘almost all’ the designers’ collections.                                                                           Collections boasting intricate embroidery, detailed beading, and even woven raffia cannot be wrong. And as if my mind wasn’t already in glam overload, the colour palettes sent me into a state closer to euphoria.           

Okay: But the simple fact is, not everyone can “love” everything equally, all of the time.

So, here are the LFDW Spring/Summer 2016 Pieces that caused me to say a small, inward “hurrah”. (In no particular order of course)

wpid-meena.pngwpid-meena1.pngwpid-meena2.pngwpid-meena3.jpg      MEENA                                                                                   The Nigerian label from Uju Offiah presented an imminently wearable LFDW collection that was at-once youthful, inventive and timeless. She got me with all those structures, layers and ruffles.

wpid-tiffany.pngwpid-tiffany1.pngwpid-tiffany2.pngwpid-tiffany3.png      TIFFANY AMBER                                                                   Tiffany’s collection was svelte. Smart, sexy modern. I love it!

wpid-sophie2.jpgwpid-sophie.pngwpid-sophie3.jpgwpid-sophie1.png      SOPHIE ZINGA                                                                   The Senegalese designer just took my breath… And don’t let me start with those cowries as buttons.. Fabric is exquisite!
