Happy hump day, the weekend is almost here and I can’t wait to go shopping on Saturday and shoot day on Sunday. What would you be doing over the weekend?
Okay so to relief you of the midweek stress I will be starting a style series called #WEAREAFRICANS showcasing africanbrands who celebrate the african lifestyle. Starting off with Nigerian brand Olori (a subsidiary of TheKatieWangCompany). For all non Nigerians/Nigerians who have no idea of the native language ‘Yoruba’, the term ‘Olori’ simply put means ‘Leader’ or ‘Queen’.
I got a few pieces from Thekatiewangcompany(@thekatiewangcompany), which i’d be unraveling each week, for this week I have styled the Olori spaghetti flay top x Royal blue mules(which I absolutely love)
Here’s how I styled mine:
The spaghetti strap flay top is a basic piece, it can be worn with anything from shorts, flay pants, jeans to maxi skirts or layered with a white shirt whatever your style is. I decided to use an elastic gold belt to cinch the top which gives it a peplum effect.
Top: Olori by @Thekatiewangcompany
Skirt: Got it a long time ago from a friend, Get similar Here
Shoes: The royalty mules from @Thekatiewangcompany
Choker: MRP lagos(not an actual choker, I simply made an illusion of a choker for this shoot )
I was going for something simple and basic but yet elegant and stylish. I plan on styling it another way; layered up with white shirt and sneakers maybe? Guess you’ll have to stick around to find out :). Has you can see i’ve fallen for Olori, keep scrolling to find out why…
Top 3 reasons Why I love Olori :
- They make use of African prints to create refreshing basic but yet classy styles, keyword ‘basic’ something every woman needs which is imporrtant
- The name is a major win for me; it gives the brand a certain je ne sais quoi
- Finishing touches are everything and Olori certainly has this, which makes me proud cause I love brands who pay attention to minor details.
Only a few people get to be the Olori while others are …..( I don’t need to say it, you know the rest Lol).
Like I always say add an element of You in whatever you wear, make it your style.
This post is more than just another style post, the title is more than pushing a brand, its about “YOU” being the Olori in whatever you do.
Hey beautiful, WHY NOT LIVE YOUR LIFE THE ‘OLORI’ WAY?
That’s all from me, be sure to check back next week same time! For more style posts coming your way #WEAREAFRICAN series
