shoot4It’s your regular dose of the BN feature; My Style! If you are interested in appearing on this page, simply send two pictures of yourself or that of a friend depicting a typical Day and Night Look with a short summary of your style to my email box: [email protected]

When your entry is approved, you will be required to send in more pictures and personal commentaries on your style or that of your friend as the case may be! Thanks to those who have participated so far, keep the emails coming.

Let’s remember that this feature is about appreciating an individual’s expression through clothing!

Bella Naija reader, Onyeka Emordi is a lady of few words when describing her style. But, one thing she doesn’t fail to mention is her love for glamour!

ONYEKA’S STYLE:

My style is pretty simple and can be classified as trendy. I love the glamorous look! I like to wear what I am comfortable in, showing some skin is alright but it becomes bad when it’s too much. I wouldn’t say my style is unique; I tend to patch up styles from different people to make up my style.

WHY DO YOU LOVE YOUR STYLE:

While some people strive to be ‘different’ when it comes to their style, I am unconcerned with that. I love my style because it suits me and it also defines my love for fashion.

HOW IT EXPRESSES ONYEKA’S PERSONLAITY:

My style expresses my love for Haute Couture, and glamour! In general I love to be dressed up for an occasion.

HAIR:

With my hair, I keep it simple. I hardly experiment and I don’t mess with colours, but a little highlight doesn’t hurt. I love the long and curly/wavy look; however, I sometimes wear my hair short. Hairstyles are very important to both men and women; my hair style depends on the season and my mood.

MAKE-UP:

Make up is a huge part of my style. There isn’t much of a difference in the makeup I wear during the day and at night. I always have my PINK lipstick on as it gives me this SEXY look. Everything is well detailed from the blush to the mascara… good mascaras are awesome you DON’T need fake eyelashes! One should be allowed to experiment with colours, as long as you blend in everything properly. Make up has to be perfect or you just DON’T wear them at all. My make up bag contains products from Mac, Sleek, Raw Minerals, Victoria Secret, Rimmel, Cover Girl and MaryKay.

ONYEKA’S STAPLES:

A tribute to denim: Both ladies and men wear denim and we all know it comes in different styles. I will like to pay a special respect to denim pants. Most of us wear denim at least once a week, not recognising the fact that it has got class, it just depends on how you wear it and it can never go out of fashion. Combining denim pants with the right set of clothing’s and shoes makes it ever trendy. LONG LIVE DENIM!

Destroyed Denim: Wetseal, Pink Flowered Top: Steps, Pink Shoes: Cutesy Shoes, Pink Bag: Coach

The Essence of a Scarf: Scarves are kind of a big deal especially in my wardrobe. It changes an outfit depending on how it is worn. I still tie my hair if it has got a nappy look and still look classy or just for the sake of looking different. One can throw a small scarf around the neck just to add a little spice to an uninspiring outfit.

In these pictures I have the day look with a scarf on my head and also around my neck and I also have it as a night look which is looking like a mono -top and also a low neck top. This is what I call the ‘Emergency outfit’….just when hanging out with your girls is impromptu or you got a sudden date (LOL).

DAY LOOK:

During the day, I keep it simple and sassy especially in the summer when the weather becomes extremely hot. A maxi halter neck dress and a pair of wedge heels will do!!!

This is the classy casual look, a simple dress and with dangerous heels and stunning bag...just easy to pull off. Heels can be worn at anytime of the day, not just restricted to nights alone. Dress: ASOS, Shoes: Bakers, Bag: Rue 21

BEACH LOOK: 

My beach look is fun and refreshing. Summer is a great time to have a different look; you can still look hot and fashionable on the beach!

BAGS AND PURSES:

Hobos, Totes, Clutches, Satchels…in different colours should not be lacking in a lady’s closet, plus it does not have to be big brand names like Fendi and Coach. You can never catch me without a purse it’s just like my right hand. It doesn’t only serve the well known purpose “fashion” but also serves as an organizer. I think black bags are too random so I just have one. I love my KATHY VAN ZEELAND bags!!

SASSY CORPORATE LOOK:

One can still look great in a semi corporate outfit; it doesn’t have to be all black and white! Add some colours and you sure are going to look superb!

NIGHT LOOK:

My Night style is made up of pretty cute and simple outfits. I rather wear a tube in different styles and at most times I leave my neck bare. I really don’t like necklaces; I wear them once in a while.

ANKARA:

Ankara fabric is now in hot demand in the Fashion industry; celebrities wear them without knowing its origin. But oh well there is nothing wrong with showing the rusty traditional style which could be worn with some western outfits such as jeans and shirts. Ankara is simply beautiful; people even use them as bride’s maid dresses, it about time the Ankara trend sets in.

    For once someone who has no statement like ” my style is unique and makes me look like a qazilliooooooooooon bucks” then we see d pics d person looks lame and plain.

    She’s a cute girl. Her style is trendy and it works for her. She looks like a model. The pics are a little too photoshopped but nonetheless, its cute!

    September 1, 2009 at 4:19 pm

    I like your style, its nice and simple, esp the hairstyles, everything comes together effortlessly…Thumbs up!!
    The only critique is that, in some of the pics you tend to matchy-matchy i,e same colour ear-ring,bag,belt &shoes on one outfit, which kinda lose you fab points…apart from that its cool and you are such a poser, but you’ve got the face and body so flaunt it jare lol!!!

    Onyeka Fine Face! Nwa lecha, e makazi! I think you’ve found what works for you and are working it.

    Biko, don’t tell people what pink lipgloss you have on, it looks great on you, but not everyone is meant to wear pink lipgloss.

    I think she has great style…very simple yet chic! It is a refreshing change from people who try too hard. Sometimes what fits and lets your natural beauty shine is the best option. Pretty girl, great style!

  52. africhika

    September 3, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    pretty girl. beautiful skin. she’s too pretty for all that makeup though.
    standing on the railroad tracks. great picture.

  53. tosin.o

    September 3, 2009 at 9:31 pm

    Fantastic, love the railroad pic especially. This is real style maybe not everyday style, but im impressed. One question though, is it only people that live abroad that have style?

  54. KayBayBay

    September 7, 2009 at 4:14 pm

    Erm….A* for effort and a 6/10 overall…..i didnt really like the hairstyles but i guess thats because i dont like weave much. The make up was a bit excessive and she should chill on the blush. I liked the day looks, the handbags (i’m a sucker for handbags!) and the creative use of the scarves. She did alright still x x

  55. Uche Iheuk

    September 8, 2009 at 4:36 am

    Onyeka i love it!! ur makeup is bold like mine…..the hair is big and i loves me some big hair!

    damn i wished i cudda photoshopped my pics too
    (blush is kinda much…but hey do u….i just dont like using blush!)
    and ur IGBO!!! Igbo kwenu!!

    ‘One question though, is it only people that live abroad that have style?’

    Good point. Almost every style feature has been from someone outside Nigeria. Wonder why. Or are people to shy to say “Dress: Balogun Market?”

  57. Tumi Jegede

    September 9, 2009 at 2:16 am

    Can I say that the different ways of wearing your scarf is really really cool. I really liked that. I really have nothing against photoshopping, but it seems some of the pics aren’t really enhanced, but more like blurred, I am sure if they weren’t I would still like what I saw :).

    I have noticed from the comments of others on BN that the type of style that is appreciated is not really original style, but ‘pretty’ style. Your style is very pretty, all your outfits make you look ladylike and they compliment your figure. They aren’t offensive, and it’s your choice if you wish your style to make an impact or not.

    For me, I would say your style is very catalogue. It’s a pretty and predictable.. pretty predictable, but at least it’ll get a lot of positive reviews 🙂

  58. maya

    September 11, 2009 at 3:29 am

    I love it all..the makeup, the shoes, the clothes, the bags, the hair..just fabulous. You should be a fashion stylist coz you make it seem effortless.

  59. Mel

    September 11, 2009 at 4:25 am

    a lot of photo shoppping on some pictures it takes away her natural beauty. she prettier in the ones that are not photoshopped. she has a beautiful style and great body. i think she wants to be a model. she would be a good one. her cheekbones are also to die for. i;m so impressed.

  60. Jade82

    September 17, 2009 at 9:38 pm

    Very nice pictures girl. I like the makeup especially the eye shadow and the smokey effect.
    My guess is that u model because u have nice poses. Just keep up the good work. Also i love what u did with the scarf. Haven’t tried it before, but will do…..
    Everyone has there style and urs is really Nice!!!!..keep it up!!!

  61. Lynda

    I love your makeup, your eye shadows are nice!

    October 9, 2009 at 7:34 pm

    This babe’s style is classy. I love it because it suits her. I think she is very creative and carries all her clothes very well. Yes her make-up can be a little heavy for some people, but I love it.
    I think some of her styles are original such as the ankara skirt and yellow top, her color combination are nice as well (the teal dress and multi-colored purse).
    Way to go babe, I feel you jare….

    You look gorgeous! You know what works for you and what looks good on your body type and I think that is key when deciding what clothes to buy or what fashion trends to follow. Transforming that scarf into day time, night time looks is simply ingenious!!

    I love that you’re not afraid of your blush, complements yournskin color.

    Definitely got great tips from you! Kudo 🙂
