It’s another time to celebrate how far we have come as a nation, how much we have accomplished since that early morning on October 1, 1960. The morning when the British government lowered its Union Jack and hoisted one to represent Nigeria as a country.
Since that early morning, so many things have changed in Nigeria including the fashion and lifestyle choices of the citizens. In the spirit of independence, here are some style options that you can comfortably slay in with a touch of green.
One of the things that particularly stand out in Nigerian fashion is our unique fabrics. Whether Ankara, Adire, aso-oke or even lace, so many stylish outfits can be designed to give off a unique look.
As you already know, the official colours of the Nigerian flag, green and white, can also be represented in these fabrics just like in the image above. These fabrics can be used to design two-pieces, off-shoulder or cold shoulder outfits and many more.
Are you trying to attend that corporate meeting with a touch of green to showcase your pride as a Nigerian citizen? Well, we’re here to show you that you can totally rock a suit in different shades of green.
Whether just a simple jacket just like Ebuka Obi-Uchendu did above or a complete ensemble of the outfit, green outfits definitely make the black skin pop!
We understand that not everyone may want to be flashy with full green outfits, so why not go with green accessories? As a Mauvelli fashionista, you can’t be caught slacking, which is why we’re offering a range of options.
A green waist pouch, midi bag, stilettos or strapped heels can also be added to the outfits for that splash of Independence Day spirit.
You can also decide to rock a green two-piece to give off a classy and bougie vibe. Two-pieces either with skirts or pants definitely look stylish irrespective of the fabric or the occasion in which they are worn.
Just like in the image above, this two-piece was styled with a matching belt, a pair of pointed heels and an animal print clutch.
As a nation that is extremely particular about culture and religion, you can also celebrate this independence in a classy and conservative manner.
Many fashion brands who are owned by Muslims here, such as Hafymo, tend to design outfits in a conservative manner, that is, not showing off too much skin and with a head tie to cover the head. We absolutely love how Hafsah Mohammed of Hafymo styled her green pants with a sleek white top and scarf, and you can surely draw inspiration from here as well!
As much as we love to play dress up, others would rather wear outfits which they can feel totally comfortable and breezy in, and we have got you covered as well!
Taking in this delightful outfit from Mimi Onalaja is giving us comfortable outing vibes, such as picnics. You can simply add an Independence Day spirit by rocking a green kimono, shift dress or even a free top and still look classy.
Well, those are some of the ways in which you can stylishly pull off outfits with a touch of green in the spirit of independence. Happy Independence Day everyone!
