Hi friends! It's been a while since I've done a style post and I apologize for the hiatus but I'm sorting out some big transitions in my life right now. I do thank you all for bearing with me. Since the weather is heating up I wanted to share one of my african style favorites, the Iro & Buba from Nigeria:
This is an old Nigerian style that has recently come back in vogue with lots of different interpretations. Iro (the wrapper skirt) and Buba (the top) is a perfect summer style because it's typically made from very light weight chiffon fabric (as seen on me) or silk; both of which flow well with the summer breeze and allow you to keep cool. The style is also versatile and can be tied two ways:
I kept the accessories and styling very basic in this post to display the beauty and versatility of the style eve without much adornment. In my next few posts I'll display a few more ways to expand the range of this ensemble. What do think of the Iro & Buba? Does it have a place in your wardrobe?
