3. Oleku styles with velvet

Velvet is crazily popular as a style worn to weddings and other important events in Nigeria. It looks its best when combined with lace detail of a brighter shade. The brighter the colors, the trendier you look.

You could also try tying the long velvet wrapper for an outrageously fashionable Oleku look!

4. Oleku fashion short Iro and Buba

Iro and Buba are the styles that are popular among middle-aged women in South West Nigeria (the early fifties to eighties). These styles are gradually transformed into fashionable Oleku.

Iro and Buba have recently been revamped and altered to become trendier and be suitable for the younger girls who enjoy wearing ‘four corners’, high neck, scallop-neck, v-neck, and cowl neck that have come to replace the boring round neck. Sleeves can also be shorter while the blouses are more fitted and playful.

There are other new twists to the style besides short sleeves and short wrappers – Nigerian fashion designers are also experimenting with prints and colors mixing. For instance, they blend an ordinary or French lace Buba with an Ankara wrapper; Adire Buba with damask or Aso-Oke wrapper to create really stunning trendy outfits.


WATCH IN HD… Whats up gals!! To tell you a little bit about this trend that has really taken off especially in the Nigerian community, it was adapted from the original Iro & Buba, a traditional wrap skirt and blouse worn as part of Nigeria’s traditional attire.

I love to always be in the epicenter of the events, and then tell the world about it in the most diverse forms.I believe that many rules are created in order to break them in an attempt to create something new.Many of us sometimes need to stop for a moment, perhaps lose something in order to rethink our existence and understand in which direction we need to move.In addition to blogging, I am fond of music composing, traveling, self-studying and meditation. I sincerely believe that if you go your own way and listen to your inner voice, you will definitely come where you were going!
