Asymmetrical Fringe | NYFW SS17 Day 5

Day 5 wasn’t as hectic as some of the other days. The first show that I attended was during the late afternoon, therefore I was able to have the morning to myself to accomplish other things. Once I arrived at Skylight Moynihan, I viewed Artistix, Katy Xiomara and Anniesa Hasibuan. By Day 5, I tapped a little deeper into my Queendom and wore the colors of royalty: purple and gold. With this asymmetrical fringed  suede skirt, I loved how the fringe moved at every step. It felt perfect for the…

Wrap Skirt & Bodysuit | NYFW SS17 Day 4

I opted for a wrap skirt yesterday because I’ve had this skirt for a few months and I finally felt like it was the right time to throw it on.  I paired the skirt with a yellow bodysuit that I couldn’t wait to wear especially because I don’t wear bodysuits often. Yellow and orange are always a great mix as they compliment each other very well. On Day 4, I viewed the

The Unconventional Button Down | NYFW Day 2

Why wear your button down shirt the usual way when you can spice it up by making it an off the shoulder top? The 94 degree weather was the major influence of this look. As I knew I would be running around to shows and parties, I needed something breathable. I saw the Tadashi Shoji collection and attended the Timo Weiland pre-party and the Stone Island Flagship Opening. Of course I’m not the first to wear my button down this way. I’m not sure who came up with this idea but…

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…

Not Your Average T-Shirt Dress | Yellow Printed Casual Dress

When wearing a yellow printed casual dress, some may be confused on how to style it. Because its casual, its easier to style than a look thats more formal. It’s pretty understandable as yellow is one of the brightest colors that anyone can wear. I get asked countless of times about how I consistently wear bright colors. Wearing a one piece such as a dress is easier to style than looks that consists of several items of apparel. It’s very much possible for most people as long as its accessorized cohesively. I’ll…

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…

Ankara Print Skirt | NYFWM Day 3

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…
