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

BellaNaija reader and blogger Zara Emezi’s style is reflective of her free-spirited personality!

ZARA’S STYLE:

I’d describe my style as comfortable, simple and clean-cut. To me, natural beauty doesn’t require a lot to be showcased, and my style is pretty much whatever I feel like wearing at that time, reflecting my mood and personality. I ‘m a big fan of accessories because they can alter the entire look of an outfit with little effort. I try to avoid white clothes because I’ve never figured out how not to spill something on them eventually. Making sure that my clothes fit and are comfortable is a big thing for me- I break in shoes carefully, try on outfits beforehand to prevent unforeseen disasters once I’m out in them, and read the labels before tossing them into the wash (shrinking dry-clean only dresses is not fun). When I shop, I buy in outfits or with an outfit in mind, so that I don’t end up with a closet full of cute things that don’t actually go with anything else and thus, never actually get worn. I’m definitely a bargain shopper, the sales rack is a close friend of mine, and although I’ve never really been into designer clothing (who dash me money?), I will spend more than usual if the piece I’m buying is a staple and of good quality. I believe that it’s better to have a smaller closet full of good-quality (if more expensive) pieces that will last you quite a while instead of an overflowing one full of things you’re going to have to toss out in less than a year.

I don’t aim to look ultra-feminine all of the time, a lot of my shoes are men’s casual, and I actually own men’s jeans of my own. I hate Uggs. I love scarves in the winter. I never wear a watch. I stopped letting people wax my eyebrows because they were on a mission to make them disappear. I’ll be using the word ‘comfortable’ a lot here. My style doesn’t fit into a box of its own, but it shows who I am, and that’s all I need it to do.

WHY DO YOU LOVE YOUR STYLE:

I love my style because I’m not trying to be anyone other than myself. I’m not spending time trying to conform to some ideal, I’m just doing me. I define my style, it doesn’t define me. I love that I can rock my hair naturally, yet be able to shave it off and still look dope. I love that I can wear men’s shoes and still feel like a woman. My style shows who I am, not who people would prefer me to be. I love my style because it tells you that I’m free.

HOW IT EXPRESSES ZARA’S PERSONLAITY:

My style isn’t a fixed thing, and neither is my personality. Trying to put me into one box won’t work. Some days, I might feel all dressy and elegant, so I’ll rock the heels and diva out. Other days, I’ll steal my fiance’s clothes and not be any less beautiful for it. I may wear gloves and a fascinator one day, then a plain tshirt and jeans the next. I might paint my nails or let them chip. I might wear a necklace or I might wear a tie. My personality is a diverse one, and this is reflected in the versatility of my style. I see myself as a down-to-earth individual who is confident in her beauty regardless of what society may think. I don’t have to flaunt my sexiness in order to be considered attractive, I don’t need a certain kind of hair or a certain kind of look or a certain weight to reassure me that I’m beautiful. Who I am inside transcends all that.

HAIR:

My hair has gone through a variety of different styles, all of them natural. I’ve had it short, medium, long, twisted, colored, and most recently, shaved off ( Read about it here) I don’t like braids or cornrows or any style that restricts my hair (it tends to irritate my scalp for some reason) so I usually wear it out or pulled back at the most. I haven’t had relaxed hair in more than three years, and going natural was definitely a pivotal point in learning more about who I am and what my style is. I’ve only had extensions twice in my life and never ever worn a weave or a wig. I would say that my hair is definitely the most versatile aspect of my style, and expresses who I am quite distinctly. I co-run a natural hair blog entitled “Leave In The Kinks”, which illustrates my hair journey and styles in more detail.

MAKE-UP:

My make-up regimen is rather simple because I really don’t wear that much make-up. I have to constantly moisturize my face because dry skin is always on the horizon if I don’t, so I use Olay’s night cream twice a day to preserve the sexy. Instead of foundation, I use a tinted moisturizer by stila once in a while (you can get it at Sephora), which highlights skin instead of covering it up. In the daytime, I usually just apply mascara (Full ‘N Soft by Maybelline) with either pink or neutral/brown lip-gloss. At night, I prefer using a deep red lipstick and some eyeliner along with the mascara. I recently stopped using black eyeliner and started using an emerald green liner instead, to add more colour to the look. With the red lipstick, I usually add a little colour to my cheeks to avoid looking washed out. For certain daytime events, I may use the nighttime look to dress it up more. For some night events, I occasionally dab a little silver or white eye shadow in the inside corner of my eyes, but that’s about the only time I use eye shadow. All in all, my attitude towards make-up is rather minimalist- I believe that less is more and I try to use it to merely accentuate my facial features instead of drowning them.

This is my out in the summer look, just lip-gloss and maybe some tinted moisturizer

WARDROBE STAPLES:

The first of my wardrobe staples is a bomber jacket I got from the Burlington Coat Factory. It’s my absolute favorite jacket, except I used to have it in chocolate-brown, which I preferred to the slate-grey that I have now. Because I live in a relatively cold part of the US, there are only a few months where a jacket is out of the question. For the rest of the year, it’s imperative to have a good selection of coats. I started collected badges to pin on the bomber jacket that pretty much express who I am, much to some people’s shock, lol.

Badges: Got them from little stores scattered all over the place. Love ‘em.

I never used to be much of a purse person until I came across some of Betsey Johnson’s bags in department stores. I love the style she infuses into her bags, and they’ve become a necessity in my wardrobe.

I also got some sunglasses she designed, which have stood up quite well, considering I tend to lose or break nearly all the sunglasses I’ve owned to date.

DAY LOOK:

I’ll be honest, I usually don’t diva up in the daytime. Really. I go for looking cute, but I’m not the type of chick who dolls up like everyday has a runway (kudos to those that have energy for that). My day look is laid-back and involves dresses or denim. I like getting my jeans at Wet Seal because for the longest time, I couldn’t find jeans in my size that were long enough. I also shop at Express and New York & Co because they make clothes with simple clean lines. In warm weather, I like dresses because they’re only one piece, so there’s less effort involved. I like prints (except some florals and animal prints), colors, funky T-shirts and for a slightly less casual look, those clean lines.

ACCESSORIES:

I love gloves. It took me a while to start actually wearing them, but I’ve started collecting them and they make me quite happy. I have a few favorite necklaces, mostly big bright chunky ones, but my true passion is earrings. Huge notice-me-by-force earrings, my friends know me by that. I never wear plastic ones, and I shop in antique stores a lot of one of a kind pairs.

Sunglasses are an almost daily accessory of mine (never at night!), either aviators or the Betsey ones.

I also use head/hair accessories, especially when my hair’s in a protective style or I just have a bad hair day. I love hats and fascinators with lace and netting, that old school vibe. Headwraps on long trips save a lot of trouble with styling, too.

When it comes to shoes, I really don’t have much of an addiction. If they’re heels and they’re comfortable, that’s pretty much it for me. Steve Madden makes amazingly comfortable heels, and I usually pick up shoes at Aldo’s, Baker’s, or department stores where you can get the better brands.

NIGHT LOOK:

I like wearing black at night, mostly, with the right accessories to spice it up. I go for a look that’s more on the elegant side, one day I’ll have enough dough for real pearls, lol. Long nights out make me place comfort on the top of my priority list.

TRADITIONAL ATTIRE:

So, I actually don’t have any Naija traditional outfits (maybe some stored at my mother’s house), because for events that call for traditional attire, I usually wear saris instead. I have several passed down from my grandmother on my mother’s side, and will be wearing one on my wedding day. They’re immensely easy to wear, versatile and I love the colors and prints. I’m wearing a camisole as a top in these pictures instead of the traditional half-blouse because it makes it more casual, and I couldn’t find the half-blouses, lol.

    First of all i would like to say this is one of the BEST that i have seen so far.

    Things that i like about her style
    1. Beautiful Skin
    2. Love her hair. Especially the picture Blown out Afro at 2.5 years. (God i wonder why she had to cut her hair???)
    3. Minimal Make up
    4. Even though she love’s unique and eccentric pieces, everything is well put together and in moderation.

    Zara go on with your Bad Self. You totally ROCK!

    BTW i like the pic with the purple blazer and the white shirt.

    Finally!!! 10/10 Loved it, loved it, loved it!!…..Your afro was beautiful and the shave brought out your beauty even more!. I really liked your style and it reminded me so much of myself, not that we dress the same in anyway but the whole idea of having a laid back dress sense…..thats soo me :), Your make-up goes well with your sense of fashion and you can just tell that you dress to be an individual and not to be part of a crowd. I liked mostly everything apart from the bags…..as much a i love bags they kinda looked a bit emo-ish to me…Oh yeah your earring collection is on fire!. Anyways nice one! ;-D

    Your style is downright unpretentious and manageable, and you have a really infectious smile. Not much new in terms of the individual pieces (except your earrings and customized jacket and……lol) but you are definitely a VERY attractive girl with a comfortable style. I enjoyed reading this.

  43. wth

    September 12, 2009 at 9:46 pm

    being mixed race doesn’t change the fact that she loves her hair natural! that’s the whole point with sugabelly. Wear your hair natural sans chemicals, weaves et al, be you colored or whatever else you identify with.

    September 12, 2009 at 11:07 pm

    I know right! I forgot to add that earlier. Such a versatile chic.

    September 12, 2009 at 11:32 pm

    I love that she doesn’t wear foundation…that’s so cool. Foundation isn’t too great for the skin. I love a good tinted moisturizer or concealer to use under the eyes if I don’t get enough sleep, but I usually never wear make up.

    September 13, 2009 at 12:21 am

    I love this! I think I’ve seen Zara featured on the BlackGirlLongHair blog, and I loved her hair.

    Her style is very similar to mine, in the sense that I have natural hair too and my transition from relaxers to natural hair have helped shape my attitude to clothes, jewelery and make up in general. Comfort is also my watch word and I love the way she puts her outfits together. She’s not following every trend going, she’s not spending a mega fortune of clothes, yet she’s managing to stay fashionable and unique. You go girl!

    Your hair suits you to a tee, perfect texture for your face shape and you wear it well. I think you looked best in natural hair colours, but I know sometimes you just want to spice it up a little and have some fun with colour.

    Also, I really love your jewellery collection, with big hair, you can afford to go really big with jewellery.

    My favourite picture is the face shot of the long dark brown hair with red lipstick. Simply glamourous :).

    About the clothes, one thing I’d say is that some outfits don’t really seem to show much personality whilst others are thriving on it, I know you said that you don’t have time to dress up everyday, but you don’t have to dress up to show your personality.

    Oh and yes, you wear your accessories perfectly!!

    Well done!!

    I love your hair either shaved or afro, they suit your face perfectly. And your simple makeup routine is nice, you look beautiful. I have to say though your style/fashion didn’t do it for me like your hair and make up did.

    I love your look it is very stylish…only a confident woman can wear red lipstick and rock a ceaser like that, good job.

    I’m about to get my “big chop” tomorrow and this is definitely inspiration. I love your make up for the red lipstick and the hair together; definitely in my plans for the week lol.

    And your style? Goodness, have you been raiding my imaginary closet? I’ve been trying to collect wardrobe like yours for the longest time, but it’s a bit difficult in the suburbs. I always find something great when I can venture up to New York though.

    Stay beautiful, beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration.
