How I Style | Turban + Shirtdress

I have a thing for turbans and as a Nigerian, we wear geles made of several fabrics for special occasions. When I decided to wear this shirt dress, I knew I wanted to wear it with a turban. I prefer wearing turbans sometimes because its easier to throw on and its super simple.You may catch me on my snapchat (@queenoyinkan) wearing a turban at least a couple  times a week. The white button down portion of the dress is attached to the blue portion. I usually like to buy these…

Sequin Applique Skirt | NYFWM Day 4

For the final day of Fashion Week,  I decided to wear a mesh taupe skirt with sequin applique. This was such a last minute look (as most of my outfits are). I was originally going to wear another skirt then decided I wanted to wear something longer and classy. I was drawn to this skirt because of its intricate detailing. It’s easy to find a floral attire anywhere but when I stumbled upon this skirt that is detailed with sequin florals, I knew I had to have it because its…

Because wearing prints is my habitat, wearing an ankara print is comfortable for me. Ankara is worn constantly by Nigerians and I’m constantly buying fabric because I never know when I may randomly want to create something.Whenever I come up with an idea, I want it when I want it. It may sound a little spoiled but thats how I am and I believe in taking the necessary steps in order to bring it to fulfillment. Because I didn’t care to wait for someone to make the the skirt for…

Casual | Bright Colors (As Usual)

By now, you may know that I don’t follow the rules in fashion but one rule that I do agree with is wearing bright colors in the summer (I just disagree with neglecting bright colors in the winter). Bright colors literally brighten up my day. Even though I can switch up with the neutrals, it’s usually easier for me to wear a bright pieces and pair it with even brighter pieces. Much thanks to my mom who raised me to wear bright colors ( I’ve been hooked since childhood, thanks…

Bridal Shower | Red Floral Dress

I love a Bridal Shower mostly because it’s the prelude to a wedding (in America). I decided to wear a red floral dress simply because it was the first dress I laid my eyes on the morning of the bridal shower. The shower took place on Saturday and it was already a hectic weekend thus far so I didn’t feel like actually looking for something to wear (which is how I feel half of the time I get dressed). Like I always say, it’s always easier to wear a dress.…

How To Wear A Sheer Dress To Work | Summer Layers

 I love wearing layers all year round. Although most people only wear layers during the cold seasons, I like to keep it going. For those who work an office job and feel like they’re running out of appropriate pieces to wear, layering sheer pieces is a great way broaden your options. Summer layers are just as fun as Fall/Winter layers since I use it as an opportunity to play with different textures. As you may know by now, pink holds the key to my heart and yellow has always been…

Floral & Stripes | Spring & Summer Staples

Mixing floral and stripes feeds my love for mixing prints. When I’m not color blocking, I’m either monochroming or mixing prints. They’re usually my default, therefore being what I naturally gravitate to do. Mixing the old with the new is always interesting as you get the opportunity to go down memory lane about the way you previously styled a piece in comparison to the way you style it today. This top is
