‘Hot’ & ‘Cool’ Style Whatever the Weather! Check out How these Fashion Bloggers Mix It Up



I love the Summer, but colder weathers, not so much. I love being able to simply throw on a few items of clothing and walk straight out door without worrying about piling on layers and covering gorgeous pieces with a winter coat. Maybe that’s just me though. I know a lot of people prefer fashion designed for the cold. They embrace the challenge that comes with putting together a good outfit with multiple pieces. And I must admit, if you can stand the cold and still look chic, then you are a ‘fashion killer’

I combed through my favorite Nigerian fashion blogs to answer the question; Do they do it better in hot or cold weathers?

Recently featured in the BellaNaija ‘My Style’ section; Stella of J’adore Fashion has undeniably fabulous style. I read through her comments and barely saw a single negative one, so there couldn’t be a better fashion darling to start the conversation. My favorite summer look from her is this gorgeous ASOS dress.


During lower temperatures, she wrapped up warm in rich colours in an ASOS leather skirt and a ZARA coat.


Lagos-based blogging duo; the beautiful sisters behind For Style Sake, Salewa and Segi, never have the cold to worry about. Watch them combat the heat in leather and sequins. Leather is an eternal favourite of mine (remember my Runway to My Way post?) and their Great Gatsby inspired sequin dresses are very relevant right now.

The super gorgeous and petite Kike of Style by Queensalso Lagos based and recently featured on Bella Naija, is always effortlessly cool.

London-based blogger and aspiring fashion designer Regina Akingbade of Reine Roi is one girl I know who prefers Spring fashion. Her orange dress is self-designed and it looks like a piece that could be designed by an established designer. Do you prefer her hot or cold look?


Houston-based Agatha of Irony of Ashi is always flawlessly made up, I can’t get over her perfect glow.


Nifesimi of Skinny Hipster always has a smile on her face. Her style is so diversified thus her posts are always so interesting and unexpected. I absolutely love her Noemmi skirt.

Kaven, just one of the four beautiful ladies behind The4AcesDate, has modeled for Victoria’s Secret and Duro Olowu among other notable projects. She has the looks to pull off just about anything she wishes. I love how she dressed down her sequin skirt here.

Omowunmi Akinsola, the face behind Daisy Mak and public relations officer at Virgo’s Lounge always has access to the stunning VL pieces before the rest of us. Luckily, her skirt is now available on Virgo’s Lounge, shop here.

The gorgeous  Shirley of uber popular blog meek-n-mild has been blogging even before it was mainstream. I love her feminine and always immaculately chic outfits.

Finally, just because of my FOMO (fear of missing out), here is how I kick it in an LBD in the summer and wrap up warm mixed prints style for cold weather.

So, what’s your conclusion? Do you prefer the hot Summer weather or is cold weather couture your favorite. Don’t forget to comment below.

      Who is that and must the person be included on here?

    • LolaLayi

      July 23, 2013 at 3:54 pm

      I was just about to comment on that!!!! What kind of list of Nigerian fashion bloggers is this without thirdworldprofashional.

    • lola

      July 23, 2013 at 3:59 pm

      errr…… she doesnt have to be on the list.

    • Ready

      July 23, 2013 at 5:22 pm

      No, she doesn’t…no-one in this list necessary has to be on it. But she should. Adaku is fashionable, she’s been in the Nigerian fashion blogging game for over 5 years, and chick has items from Virgos Lounge & a few other designers named after her. I’m not even a stan, but I had to defend her nomination.

    • lola

      July 23, 2013 at 5:57 pm

      @ready. *take cold water* seriously no one is disputing that she isnt one of the most fashionable bloggers out there. I repeat. she doesnt have to be on this list. She can be on the next list the writer comes up with.
      na una sabi. eyin fashionistos.

      TWP is a fab lady and I cant get enough of her blog. but It’s obviously her friends that are coming on here and making irrelevant comments and making it look like people talk about [email protected] Ready, which nomination?Na award ceremony ni? Please let us focus on the gorgeous beauties featured on here.They are equally if not more fabulous than our beloved TWP.

    • Ready

      July 24, 2013 at 1:23 pm

      @lola, you need to calm yourself. Make your point but keep the theatrics. Yes, there are fab ladies on this list. But na you ask if she has to be on the list. You ask question, pesin answer…you come dey froth for mouth. Biko, hold your corner.

    • lola

      July 24, 2013 at 2:32 pm

      July 24, 2013 at 4:15 pm

      No offence but adaku isnt very stylish. she is just a consistent blogger. thats my humble opinion. the 4aces girls are stylish..and soraya…creative lot. the rest are bleh!.

  4. Lynxx & Emma Nyra are Nigeria wackest artist alive!

      July 23, 2013 at 7:57 pm

      Her stans are amazing. You need to read the comments on her blog, ridic. Says something about her to inspire that kind of following.
      Lol, see how a post about other bloggers has turned into one about Adaku.

      This is not an exhaustive list of Nigerian Fashion Bloggers so I don’t get how the writer forgot to add these people you all are mentioning?Abi, did the writer say she intended to add them before?

  16. Sifon

    One bahd fashion blogger is Soraya!! Her style is off the chain. She’s based in the UK. I don’t know her personally, but I can’t deny the fact that shes a fashion queen. Check out her blog Nigerian fashion bloggers home and abroad gat nothing on her style. Period!!!

    • zeee

      July 24, 2013 at 10:27 am

      Sorry but jadore is still the best. Soraya has got nothing on stella. Shes too effortless. Go and compare comments when Soraya was featured with stella’s. That alone will tell you

    • say what?

      July 24, 2013 at 11:07 am

      I like Soraya but abeg i think the girl is more about brand names…to me she doesnt get it all the time but i love looking at her collection..


    July 24, 2013 at 2:23 am

    that Omowunmi akinsola girl tho! geez she needs to edit herself! ahah! idk it thats the london style but it strikes me as a WANNABEE poser! kaven is bloody stunning! Shirley is the best up there simple chic and classic she is not a by force fashion blogger

  19. Karimot

    July 24, 2013 at 3:38 am

    Are you guys all daft? This is not a list ofvall Nigerian fashion bloggers, the writer is just listing her favorite hot/cold styles of “some” Nigerian fashion bloggers. No offense but y’all are some kinda dumb.

    • MN

      July 24, 2013 at 8:36 pm

      Now that you have called people “daft”and “dumb” , are you a happier person now. abegi there are nicer ways of saying things

  20. Aibee

    July 24, 2013 at 4:25 am

    Too many people wearing beautiful clothes and taking pictures calling themselves stylists, fashionistas and fashion bloggers. Just my opinion, though.

  21. Fashionbabe

  22. loveth

    No blogger here has anything on JILLIAN of NUSOPHISTICATE. Her style is effortless – the right makeup, natural hair, well fitted cloyhes…i can go on and on. Another is EWEMADE of matildaschild

  24. Berry Dakara

    July 24, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    LOL, how did this turn into “Nigerian Fashion Blogger Wars?”

    I like all the looks, and wish I could be as stylish as they are 🙂

  25. Mariaah

    July 24, 2013 at 2:08 pm

    LOL… I love Kaven.. I agree about Abby Omoruyi.. LMAO I actually saluted Kaven’s pic when I saw it. Like MAMA!!! She just pulls anything off though Cookey’s style is more like my style…

  26. Duvy

    July 24, 2013 at 2:57 pm

    So you know what to do Bella, make this a weekly post.

  27. enkay

    July 24, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    Shirley B. Eniang of meek n mild blog takes it as the winner! That girl at such a young age is so full of class, and a smart one too. Bella you forgot to add my girl Patricia Bright ( London) aka britpopprincess of moments of style blog.

  28. clarissa

    July 24, 2013 at 5:34 pm
