What’s up guys? Hope you’ve been enjoying Spring so far?
The time to box all our wool, felt & thick garments in exchange for thinner colourful clothing is here! For some however, wearing colour can be very tasking. This is where I come in to help. I naturally enjoy incorporating colours & prints in my outfits therefore I will be sharing simple ways in which you can do so for this season.
Are you ready?
This my dear friends is the entry level for styling prints. Accessories such as scarves, bags, belts, earrings e.t.c are a fun way to add colour to your looks in small dosage.
Now that we’ve graduated to intermediate level, select a garment with small print to start out. Smaller prints are generally more flattering on most body shapes, plus they are not as overwhelming as bolder prints.
I’m down for playful trims to add personality to outfits. Choose garments with accents of print around the hem of dresses, skirts e.t.c or straps around the sleeve of a simple top, if committing to a full print look is too much.
Take the dive into the print-verse by adorning a causal look with a vibrant print outerwear. This will immediately add life to any look without trying too hard.
Hope you learnt a few tips from this post that could help you add colour to the wardrobe as the weather gets warmer.
In exciting news, I now have an online shop dedicated to colourful African textiles sourced from Nigeria. The store also aims to donate 10% of its proceeds to The Stand To End Rape Initiative from the month of May to July.

I was always fascinated by the cape design. I’m comfortable creating pieces with a front closure but how would I do a cape in a dress with zippered back
