I look forward to your My Style Submissions!
Bella Naija reader Chinenye Ezurike, speaks fondly about her style. It’s not hard to tell how much she loves dressing up and being a ‘girlie girl’ which reflects in her style!
My style can be described in three words; girlie, sexy and funky! I like to be stylish but I add my own mix of individuality and originality. Most of the time, I definitely consider myself to be a girlie girl most of the time as I opt for very feminine choices like floral dresses, blouses and skirts. I feel I don’t have to show a lot of skin to be sexy. I wear maxi dresses and feel sexy in them! Funky for me can be vintage or urban influences in my style; I express my mood with my funky side.
WHY I LOVE MY STYLE:
I love my style a 100% all the way because I know I look great in whatever I wear, and my style gives me the chance to express myself. My wardrobe isn’t expensive but I sure can make shorts from target shorts look like it’s from Gap! I love my style because it’s uniquely put together by me; I can be sure of walking into a party and be sure to see no girl with my dress on.
HOW IT EXPRESSES CHINENYE’S PERSONALITY:
I love to be girlie yet edgy, without going for the extreme, i.e. Lady Gaga…LOL…l but still show the couture side of me. My style suits my personality because I enjoy being sexy the centre of attention and my style helps me in achieving that. My style is colourful, outgoing and bold!
I wear bangs and like to have it full to cover my whole forehead. I usually go for a straight medium length bang cut. For a t typical African look I wear tiny bob Marley braids in 20 inches. I have it in this length because I am tall and I can pull it off.
MAKE UP DAY/NIGHT:
During the day, I like to keep things fresh with soft tones on the eyes and lips, always very light and simple. At night, I opt for brighter colours on the eyes, or smoky eyes. To keep the look strong!
FAV CLOTHING STORES:
This is day look is casual enough to go to the movies. A black satin top with ruching detail around the mid waist combined with a flare bottom to accentuate my figure which I paired with ripped jeans that I layered with black tights to conceal some skin.
A funky look from the hair style to earrings and the colour. The hair is inspired by Diana Ross; me sometimes the bigger the better! The earrings bring out the colour of the tank complemented by a plaid shirt.
Great summer look; perfect for taking a stroll, a casual visit to a friend or a trip to the beach.
A cute casual day look. This look is simple, easy and quick. A good choice for a casual date simple date with a friend or boyfriend. A white tank top and a waist band skirt worn with black accessories and blue sandals to make it pop.
This is a conservative look for a business/ formal lunch. A gray high waist skirt paired with a pink ruffle shirt and my very comfortable 5inch platform heels.
A nice day look; dress with a pick-up bottom paired with strappy heels.
My nails are a part of my style. love getting them colourful and bold enough to make a statement.
An “all black everything” look! Black baby doll dress, chunky pearl necklace to accentuate my neck line with black high top booty shoes.
A funky night look; brown sequins shirt, ankle leggings and blue leather jacket for colour. Black open toes shoes and long chandelier earrings complete this look.
A mono strap fitted animal print dress. To make more of a statement, I have my hair pinned up to the side with curls. With peacock design earrings to keep the jungle theme going.
In my Little Black (lace) dress this is a simple lace black dress. Black booties with gold studs are the perfect complement to add a bit of drama.
A simple night look; satin smooth leggings with plaid tank top with lace details layered with a leather jacket and purple shoes!
This is one of my favourite looks! A strapless floral print dress, with side pocket details. I am a fan of tights, but this dress can go both ways; with or without tights.
I commend anyone who can pull off a bold green dress! This is a up-round neck fitted satin dress, it’s simple but elegant. I like the bow detail at the side of the waist. Accessorized with pearls, I had long yellow pearls going down my back and gold strap platform shoes complete this look.
