“What To Wear” – 5 Events, 5 Outfits! What you could Wear to this Weekend’s Events



T’is the season to be loving! It’s another edition of “What To Wear” and this time, we are not only showing you what you could start your stuff in, but where you should do it.

There are so many events lined up for the next couple of days that it’s been overwhelming just thinking about it. We have the ever so stylish Kim Kardashian coming to Nigeria to co-host Darey’s “Love: Like  a Movie” concert happening on the 17th. The American R&B and neo-soul singer Maxwell headlining the “Valentines With Maxwell” concert on the 16th, proudly brought to you from Classic FM. Some comedy Music and karaoke at the “festival o f Love” with Julius D’genius Agwu and many more on the 16th. Arouse your senses with new flavors of Top Tea at the “Valentine Tea Fiesta Season 3” on the 15th and get ready for a Lagos party with Banky W at the R&BW “Grand Love Project” on the 15th.

Excited yet?

Take a look at some suggestions you could wear for this fantastic line up of events to have you looking stunning even when you decide to loose those heels chasing after Maxwell.
Darey’sLove: Like a Movie” concert:
The “love like a movie” concert promises to be an amazing night of love, music, dance and theater  so why not use the basis for your outfit. Try channeling your inner artistic side with a dress with abstract designs like this Black Caviar dress.

Showcase you inner daredevil with the studded jacket from H&M and black platform sandals to still keep it feminine. It’s still a concert celebrating love so some heart shaped earrings, that still have that extra bling, would do perfect.
The Top Tea” Valentine Tea Fiesta Season 3″:
The Top tea “Valentine Tea Fiesta” is about to have its third edition and you should be there live for event. Try wearing a blush colored outfit or something in pale light colors. The Petits lace Tutu Dress from Miss Selfridge is in a blush color and has a patterned glitter top to keep the shine on you even though celebrities will be present.

The Mauritius Gold & Rhodium Imi Aqua Stacked Ring adds a little more dazzle to your fingers. Add some color with your bag like this red Olivia embossed leather bag, add some pearl earrings and cute shoes to complete the look.
R&BW “Grand love project”:
It’s an EME concert so you’ve got to bring your A game! Try something sexy and daring like the foiled wetlook dress from Miss Selfrige to stand out of the crowd. Have Banky hearing wedding bells with a stunning ring and a leather belt with some kisses spelled across.

The nude colored shoes are an added advantage for three reasons; its color will accentuate the dress adding more flavor to your outfit, it gives you that extra sex appeal and it has a secret weapon, spikes. That’s for those pesky girls who think they’re more suited for the role of Wellington.

Ribbons and Roses Conversations in G-strings:
Don’t go cliche with some ribbons and rose brooches. Keep it simple and classy. Instead of going for the traditional red, try a pale pink like this Tunnel Vision dress and Nina leather heels both from French Connection with some earrings to match. Make your writs pop with some statement jewellery like the dazzling Alexis Bittar large lace cuff.

Festival Of Love:
It will be a playful evening so why not try something playful. Try a nicely patterned jumpsuit like this polkadot number from Miss Selfridge. Add a light blue denim jacket to give your look some edge and lovely nude colored heels that wont take away too much from the outfit. This is sure to make you stand out without necessarily being the butt of the joke.

Please note that the style advice given here are just suggestions and not to be taken literally.

Have a great weekend.

    Studded leather jacket in the Nigerian heat? I don’t think so. I would think that the best outfit to wear for any kind of concert would be the basic shirt and jeans with kitten heels or whatever kind of comfortable shoes preferred. However, to each their own.

    Leather jacket, seriously?
    The first three outfits are a no no for me, the last two can be managed. Is this what your style section is going to be giving us? A whole Bellla Naija? Surely you can do better

    Only in Nigeria would one dress up for a concert like they are going for high tea with the Queen at Buckingham Palace. A nice pair of jeans, shirt and comfortable shoes would suffice unless you are going to the opera. Who so ever suggested these 5 Events outfit needs to go back to the drawing board as a stylist

    Would it kill you guys to suggest clothes from Nigerian designers as well.

    I second non-prof opinion. Some naija designers. But then again, I MISS the brief but uber cool Bella DIY feature by [email protected] Onnari girl. Hope we get that feature up again!
