Hey there Fashionistas
Hope we all had a lovely day? well mine was good but trust Lagos with all the hustle and sun to spice it up.
Okay so this morning on my social media I came across an upcoming event on @fashionbydaisy’s Instagram page called the #SLAYFESTIVAL by SheLeadsAfrica holding on the 21st of January, 2017 at Ebute metta, Lagos Nigeria. For more details on activities and tickets (Click Here)
I felt an instant attraction to this event Can you guess what it was? Well it’s the word “SLAY” I love anything that has Slay in it (slay is a verb an action word, it’s a way of life) Like if it has slay then the event gonna be bomb! And I can’t wait to be there and if you gonna be there you have to Slayyyy from head to toe like literally from your hair to your toenails (Insert LOL smiley)
Have no ideas what to wear? I got you girl, isn’t that the main reason for this post anyways?
As the style creative I believe I am I put together a quick look book on 5 styles you could rock to this event and SLAY hard.
LOOK 1: Exaggerated sleeves x Stripes
This look is casual well I tried to make all the looks as casual as possible. This style has a girly, cool and edgy thing to it. The skirt makes it girly, the sneakers make it cool and the exaggerated sleeves give it a bit of an edge while looking classy. Personally I love Tote bags and I think there are pretty cool and quite comfortable to carry around with enough room for your daily essentials. And when stepping out of your house an outfit is never complete without sunglasses.
LOOK 2: Good girls slay too
In the first look the skirt’s quite short so I decided to create a look for my fellow sister’s who can’t leave the house with short outfits or are just not comfortable in short skirts, dresses e.t.c and still want to slayy regardless.
You can go for this pretty skirts either the metallic gold pleated skirt or the maxi denim. You could actually rock the two skirts with a white basic tee and still kill it but I decided to switch it up a bit with the croppie crop and Gafa gladiator sandals(Click Here to Buy) which I lovee. I paired the gold pleated skirt with a basic tee and you could either go for white sneakers or an embellished gold cap flat with a chain bag and of course a pair of sunglass.
Remember you have to smell as nice as you look.
LOOK 3: Printastic dresses
This right here is for all the dress lovers who love to stand out in prints or who don’t like prints atall but love a little dress action I dare you to leave your comfort zone and try something different Its 2017 Stand out!
My sources tell me bold florals would be one of the trendy trends in fashion this year and I’m so ready to embrace it. Are you?
I paired these dresses with flat gladiator sandals and you also have an option of white sneakers cause they go with almost anything and I love them.
LOOK 4: Shorts x Kimono
What’s a festival without shorts, crops and kimonos? (I don’t mean new yam festival or eyo LOL)
I made these looks stylish, cool, edgy and classy. The ripped shorts makes it edgy, the turtle neck makes it classy, All together a stylish ensemble and Like I always say keep your bag close and your shades closer
Btw(By the way) there are actually 3 looks in this picture
- Bralet x kimono x shorts with any of the shoes you desire
- Turtle neck crop x kimono x shorts
- Turtle neck x shorts x boots
Not so much of me tho but It’s still lovely and I could always slay in it.
LOOK 5: Very laid back look
First of all I want to acknowledge the irrelevance of the umbrella in this picture I just loved how it looked.
Okay so this was one of the first outfit I put together on polyvore, the very laid back look which has me all overrr it. This is so I and I would definitely rock this look starting from the crop top to the tailored highwaist pants, to the cap down to the slides.
The choker and ear cuff gives it an edge and if you know me you know I love my ear cuffs yes ear cuffs with an‘s’ (Lol)
This is the final look for this look book I hope you have an idea on what to slay in. I am working on links on how to get these looks might not be exactly but similar looks.
Ps: You’d notice for all the looks with sunglasses I went for the all black shades because I believe it’s classy and goes with everything and in this recession we can manage a pair of sunglass
All looks curated and styled by me (Nayonde) and of course Polyvore (App used)
Had a lot of fun doing these I practically did it everywhere while I was eating, walking, in traffic (Lol)
Like the saying goes “Slay or Be Slayed”
