Yay or Nay? Are You Feeling Iyanya’s Menswear Skirt Trend Look



Iyanya - August 2013 - BellaNaija

Move over Kanye West, our very own Iyanya is taking men’s fashion to the next level.

Over the weekend, the 27 year old music star was spotted in Ghana for the Soundcity Premium Party rocking an outfit that raised eyebrows.

Kukere master who was with his Made Men Music Group entourage, wore a black body hugging shirt, black pants and white sneakers.

But it was his black-and-white paisley print bandana that he wore as a skirt that made this look a bit more fashion forward for menswear.

Top designers introduced the menswear skirt trend in 2009. And we have seen some international celebrities rocking the trend.

Although Iyanya’s isn’t the full menswear skirt look, we can all agree it definitely looks similar.

Gents will you try this look and ladies will you let your beau try the look? Let us know!

    I actually love the givenchy look think its sexy *drooling* but i doubt i’d be able to convince le hubz to wear it and he has a similar build to the model so he’d look smoking *sigh*

    It’s an oversized shirt with side zips that are zipped down making it look like a skirt. This is how you guys would stay and start a controversy. Praiz also wore the same thing. Furthermore the shirt isn’t nice, the top side is too fitted and it should be loose/oversize, I’m sure it’s a thirsty Nigerian wannabe designer that made this shirt.

      NO!!!….its a bandana tucked into his trousers, which makes him look even sillier than he already looks.

    Definitely not a trend for men trying to attract women. I guess you can call it The Woman Repeller.

      Permit me to vehemently disagree. Have you seen a burly, hot scotsman in a kilt? Or some fully masculine African males from either the Efik/Ibibio or many of the Niger Delta ethnicities rocking that lappa with an “Itibo”?

      Or, let me bring it home. Did you ever watch any of these movies – ‘Sparticus’, ‘Gladiator’, ‘300’ or ‘Troy’?? Yes, ma’am, you can give me Brad Pitt muscular calves in a skirt, any day!! In fact… let me stop, lest my thoughts cause me to sin… But my husband, if he’s got the legs for it can wear a kilt or lappa whenever he wants to. I’ll probably be taking all kinds of liberties in hidden corners if he did…

    so its ok for girls to wear trouser n look like men, but when men wear skirts then its a bad thing. People, try to look at the whole pic before voicing your opinion. Why is looking like a girl/woman consider a bad thing in society, but looking like a boy/man consider a good thing. And we shout gender equality.

    Now some dudes are turning this into a controvesy,but seriously does it really look good on them. HELL NO baby,it does not make ‘brain’. Now I c the topic of a woman not wearing man’s clothing and vive versa coming in. I wont say its not okay for them to wear skirts,but does it really look good on them.
