Nigerian stylist Ezinne Chinkata Popularly known on social media as Zinkata has put together an amazing look book on what to wear to the Lagos fashion and design week. Personally, I find so much inspiration in her picks hence, I had to share with you. From 28th-31st of October would see all fashion-lovers converge to witness amazing fashion designs from Nigeria. This years edition of Gt bank Annual fashion week promises to be as exciting as ever. #HeinekenLFDW marks its 5th anniversary with Designers such as Tiffany amber Nigeria, Orange Culture, Mai Atafo and a host other talented designers who will run the show. I mirrored in on my top 5 favorites from this look book.
Look1:The Classic Girl
A black statement little black dress or top.Both looks pack a punch and lay a great foundation for some colour. You can go big or go home with bold accessories or a hat and the pieces can be worn from day to night.
Look2:Chic in Blazers/Trench City
A blazer or trench coat is a great addition to your look for fashion week. It can be a great covering for the evenings and adds some definition and depth to your entire look. These 2 outfits; one a print jackets & trouser set paired with a black tank top; and the other a mini dress with baby doll collars and long sleeves paired with a white trench would look great at night. They both offer great outfits and can be dressed up with heels.
Look3:I Look Fab in Culottes
Culottes are a stylish, classy and easy way to rock the fashion week in style. Try out a print combination that would make you stand out, and take charge of the room. It’s easy, breezy and can be rocked with flat shoes or heels.
Look4: Pastels and Bohemian Beauties
Rocking some beautifully hued outfits is another great way to go. Try out a Bohemian look with some free flowing dresses with sheer detailing, or a cutesy mini dress with tulle and embellishments to add that girly feel to your overall look. They’re great looking outfits that allow for free movement while keeping you stylish.
Look5: For the love of Ankara
We all love the vibrant ambiance that comes with a great ankara piece. It announces you when you enter into a room, which might come in handy when the fashion week madness begins. Ankara pieces can be very easy and won’t give you stress when it comes to styling it up or down. Check out this ankara outfit! It’s fun, vibrant and gives just the right amount of ‘umph’ to get you noticed as you shuttle between shows.
