The cool, colourful and individual styles of Nigerian fashion are becoming more popular by the minute. Recently, these trends have stood out especially – be inspired by the fantastic world of Nigerian style!

Off the Shoulder

Dresses and blouses off the shoulder can be seen anywhere – on fashion shows, the red carpet, in music videos…  They’re a great style for anyone who wants to look just a little bit daring. If you get annoyed by the sleeves slipping down your arms, consider cut out options which can be found in loads of places.

Beautiful singer Mo’chedda loves to show her (cold) shoulders:

Ankara Fabrics

Vivid patterns and colourful fabrics – that is what African fashion is known for. Especially Ankara fabrics are associated with it. Traditionally these colourful patterns are worn to many occasions. We think that they are amazingly pretty and with them you can dress to impress.

Nigerian Fashion Designer Duro Olowu’s modern take on Ankara Fabrics is wonderful.

Chic and Modern Blazers

Who doesn’t like the ever-ready, always classy blazer? Whether plain or with crazy patterns, they have the ability to transform any outfit. The Nigerian world of fashion seems to agree and enchants us with blazers in all kind of variations.

We love this showy yellow one that Iyabo Ojo presents exceptionally well.
