Look of the Day: THE FIA AGBADA

Nov 24, 2015 | Beauty, Fashion

I worked around three trains of thoughts while styling my (Agbada): Matching Print Top and Pants by FIA which features a baggy top and tapered pants.. It is a stylised version of the traditional Agbada worn mainly by men of the Yoruba tradition..An androgynous take you may say..

My thoughts:

1. I wanted it to feel more contemporary than traditional

2. Wear a cool head covering as my hair is in dire need of a salon stop-over

3.Be able to wear it to the 6:45 am church service this morning (and be suitably respectable)


… and so.. I styled my FIA Agbada along these lines..


Pearls: To add a more contemporary feel

Beret: Cool covering for my hair and also a bit more contemporary..

Black inner Vest : To protect my dignity..no cleavage etc.. Gracious enough for church no?

Black Pumps: To co-ordinate nicely with the rest of my black additions..

Have an awesome day!!
