The brightest examples of Yoruba fashion style can usually be found on the traditional wedding. These events usually combine customs of old and modern tendencies. Contemporary Yoruba clothes is the same – it combines the type and style of old with new materials and new, even brighter, colors. Let’s take a closer look on some of the Yoruba traditional wedding attires:
The most common choice for Yoruba traditional wedding attire is a combination of Iro and Buba (a wrapper and a blouse) with a Gele (headpiece).
They are usually made out of Aso Oke – traditional Nigerian cloth, but other materials are becoming more popular as well.
This Yoruba attire stands out among the others both in its light-green bright color and in the material – floral-like lacing patterns make the dress look very light and beautiful. This is a great example of the fusion of old and new in Yoruba fashion style.
The next type of wedding attire includes a dress instead of the Iro and Buba, which works much better in terms of putting an emphasize on women’s figure.
This great Yoruba outfit incorporates the use of floral pattern too, but the material it’s made of is much different.
In a Western world, the bride’s white dress symbolizes her purity, and these versions of the Yoruba attire use this idea too.
This unusual merge of traditions looks pretty organic and the outfit overall looks gorgeous. The use of accessories like beads is more important in this case, as the white dress creates a blank canvas for them.
This attire with multiple different colors is a great variation on the traditional wedding costume. It continues the tradition of bright and fun Yoruba clothing styles and it looks pretty awesome.
