native

I have discovered that some people do not know ‘jack’ about fabrics and their native wear wardrobe is as good as non- existing.

They wear blazers, suits, shirts, corporate dresses and pants to work during the week, tank tops and jeans on weekends. I am not just talking about people living abroad, but there are people like that in Naija too.

Their first native wear might be their traditional outfit on their traditional wedding day or a very close family member’s Aso-ebi. Some people have never even tied gele on their head before *lol*

And I think it is necessary to infuse our roots/heritage into our closets as African prints and African fabrics are taking over the contemporary fashion world.

That’s why I have compiled a small list of staples I think every African woman should have in their closets for that traditional look to work on Fridays or to worship service on Sunday as well as any event that you didn’t get their Aso-ebi but still want to rock and slay them elegantly.
