Denim is a go-to fashion trend that one can always fall back on, regardless of event or occasion, denim can be made to work and look good. We draw inspiration from 6 fashionistas in the Nigerian entertainment industry. 2 radio presenters, 1 stylist, 1 TV presenter and 2 designers – with these kind of people you know that our style tips for today cannot go wrong.


When In Doubt – Double Denim

A lot of people shy away from wearing double denim, and this is understandable given the heat situation in Nigeria right now. But there are a few places where you can go that this look will not be uncomfortable. So think office meeting on a Saturday, or a quick meet with a client in a lush restaurant – double denim is the chic way to go.

Blast From The Past – 80’s Baby

The fashion world is really just a cyclic world where trends are repeated and styles are revamped. So don’t be afriad to dig into the past and pick up style inspirations. Fade Ogunro gives us the hippie look here and it is gorg! The hair, the blouse, the flared jeans – that’s the way to go.

All Dressed Up – In Denim

Not a lot of people like wearing denim dresses, and to be honest they can be quite a chic look with minimal effort. Eku Edewor is wearing a denim piece from the Agbani Darego like here. She lets her hair and accessories do the talking and you have to admit she does look hot, doesn’t she? Your inner diva is waiting for you to take a risk with that denim dress this weekend.

The Classic Denim Shirt

A denim shirt paired with a pencil skirt or well tailored pants can give off such a semi-formal look like you wouldn’t believe. Completed with the perfect pair of shoes and subtle make up then you step out of your house looking as pretty as Kaylah Oniwo.

Take A Risk With Dungarees

Don’t turn up your nose at the thought! Dungarees are really coming back (remember you heard it here first) and to be a part of the trend you can always rely on denim. If you don’t want a full look like Ugonna Omeruo’s here, you can always opt for a shorter pair of dungarees with a similar effect, and don’t forget your statement pumps.

Rip It Up Denim Style

Nothing makes a statement like ripped jeans. So if you are going for a pair of boyfriend jeans this weekend, or a softer and more girlie look with the denim skirt – choose something with a little wear and tear like Lisa Folawiyo (the style god) has done. A print casual shirt and cute pumps are all you need to finish up your look and out you go for a rad time out!
