My Lagos streetstyle: Act like a lady, dress like a man

Ezinne Osuagwu

This morning was a rush, I woke up late, I threw on my brother’s dashiki pants and his white shirt, which obviously was a little oversize so I decided I wasn’t going to wear flats so I don’t look too short. I did not look in the mirror as I left the house, I just made a mad dash for the office, and when I finally got a look see in the mirror, I heaved a sigh of relief.

Androgyny is a trend that has been widely embraced and is gaining a lot of popularity and from the first day I realized that I could wear a dashiki, I knew there were no boundaries.

The best way to still look like a lady in a man’s outfit is to add a touch of femininity to the look. It could be a pair of heels, it could be a turban, or even a neck scarf, which will be my next accessory of choice apart from heels; Just something that says I love men’s clothes but I absolutely love my feminine side.

Also, if you’re rocking an oversize shirt, fold the sleeves high up, this makes the shirt look smaller.

Try the androgynous look today and add a dash of “you” to it. If you do try the look, tag us on instagram or twitter @happenings9ja so we can see it too.

Have a fab one.
