My Style Amba Agi - BellaNaija - March2014051Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak” – Amba Agi

My Style is one of our favourite features on the BN Style page, and judging from the responses it gathers, I can safely say, it has our readers interested. To be featured in My Style simply send an e-mail to [email protected] with a brief description of your style and 2 photos showing your style- a day & night look. After your email has been received you would be required to send in more photos later on.

BellaNaija reader Amba Agi is our My Style focus for this edition and she is a beautiful 4th year International Relations and Developmental Studies student at the University of Windsor, Canada. She loves to write and read online, listen to music and sing (whenever she gets the chance).

Her interest in style started as she grew over the years and then she started her fashion & style blog –

Amba describes her style as trendy and versatile so keep scrolling to see more of her style, where she likes to shop and who inspired her style philosophy.

Where Style Meets Personality
I am pretty versatile, and my style is one of the many ways I showcase that aspect of my life. I love trends but I try to make them my own. As I grow and change, my style develops with me as well. I love to play with colors, and I am a huge fan of shoes and blazers.

Where I Shop Till I Drop
I love to shop at Zara, Asos, H&M, Guess (esp. by Marciano), and Bebe. They are true to their sizes and they always have dapper collections in my opinion.

I am always shopping for shoes, blazers and dresses. The rest come after.

My Tresses
I love to try different hairstyles but my ‘go to’ hairstyle would be a super long middle or side part.

Getting My ‘Working Class Girl’ On
I do not have a day job yet, so I dress up to school most times. I don’t get to dress up as much as I would want to when it comes to my work look.

I Think Every Girl Should Have
A black blazer, black pumps, sunglasses and rings.

My Advice for Other Stylistas
It is not compulsory that you get it right at once, and you must not love every fashion piece out there. But it is important to crave perfection in whatever it is that you do. Style is a gradual process at least for me as a work in progress. Your style exudes who you are.

For people who love trends, it is important to be careful about them. Follow them if you can, but still dress according to your body type and the image you want to create for yourself. Your style is what you want it to be.

If I Could Steal A Celebrity’s Wardrobe
I would love to have Victoria Beckham and Nina Nguyen’s Wardrobe. Yes I want both :D. They always look gorgeous and stylish, and they make it look so easy.

Which Celebrity Stole My Look
I would say that I want my style to resemble Genevieve Nnaji’s. I love how she is always well dressed, displays so much class and still so versatile. I love the gorgeous Eku Edewor and Stella of Jadore Fashion as well.

My Style Philosophy
I saw this quote online by Rachel Zoe a while ago and I believe it stuck. “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak“. I believe style shows dexterity and it is an art. When I dress up I think about that and I try as much as possible to be meticulous about what I present to the world.

    March 10, 2014 at 4:56 pm

    Can you guys Stfu!! I’m sure most of you here have no fashion sense. You cannot put colours together to save your life and you’re here talking shit about her.
    Please her dress sense is 100% and her style speaks volume

    • OliviaNope

      March 10, 2014 at 6:28 pm

      you don’t have to tell ppl to stfu they are just giving their opinions. TBH there is nothing unique or jaw dropping about her pieces . If you know her personally why not advice her to put in more effort because I have seen better features on bellanaija with unique styles and taste. Just my two cents.

    • Tim'tim

      March 12, 2014 at 10:13 am

      Buh really olivia pple need to STFU….. It states ‘MY STYLE’ u either like or not and even if u going to criticize, take it easy on her. So many ladies can’t put colors together and can dress up buh here is even a tip for beginners like them criticizing her. Yet they go behind the computer and drop comments with their cursed fingers. Not nice please.

  19. Mrs Nwosu

    March 10, 2014 at 5:50 pm

    Look like shoes and bags you pick up at Primark, yes I said so. Bella respect yourself and stop sending in anything

    • Tim'tim

      March 12, 2014 at 10:17 am

      Big deal shopping at Primark? Na wetin dey kill 9ja girls be this. Forming what u r not. Tell me u don’t wear primark things or uve never. I know ur type na una dey sleep for primark pass. Better swallow ur smelling ego and wear what u have before u go and steal and get disgraced all cos u wanna meet up to standard.

  22. Me

    March 10, 2014 at 8:17 pm

    Wendy, just learn to appreciate. Stop being so mean. Where ever the shoes are from, they belong to her and it’s her style. Nice

  23. Zee

    March 10, 2014 at 9:18 pm

    Her style shows that you don’t need to wear big labels – louboutin, chanel, dior, prada etc. like other ladies do to be stylish.
    If you look at most people that are claimed to be “stylish” they always have one big brand name on them.

    You can be stylish for less.

  24. Noni

    March 10, 2014 at 10:50 pm

    Meh. I definitely won’t say she dresses badly but like most people have said it’s very very average and definitely not someone who I would notice on the street or admire if I knew her. Props for trying though.

  25. michelle

    March 11, 2014 at 5:34 am

    She is a young college student , you guys need to leave her alone. The fact that she is not wearing labels does not mean she has no style. It is HER style and she happens to pull it off beautifully. Pls stop making Stella of jadore-fashion the bench mark for everybody else. Stella has her own style and Amba has her own style.

    Oh and by the way Stella works, so she can afford to buy all the labels she wants. Amba already said she doesn’t work, but she still worked the heck out of what she can afford. You go gurl, keep it up.

  26. ao

    March 11, 2014 at 7:05 am

    So cute. Pretty girl. She clearly has a sense of style without having to rock brand names. You go girl!

  27. smh

    March 11, 2014 at 7:15 am

    Sorry to be harsh by why is everyone yapping on about jadore fashion? There is NOTHING ground breaking about that girls style and the only supposed wow factor is that she has the odd designer label here and there, sorry but jadore fashion is FAR from facially appealing in fact she is painful to look at so i find it hard to even look st her blog, cos she just aint cute, I am NOT a hater oh! Before the stella voltrons jump on my case. The young lady here is doing style on a budget kudos to that jare!

    It’s all this I gots to belong by fire or by force that lures young ladies in this country in doing unspeakable things just to keep up with the bellanaija and instagram joneses, Abeg her style is fine and she tried, just my 2 pennies!

    If you don’t agree kindly feel free to just skip this comment!

    Thanks xx

    First off, @smh, calling someone “painful to look at” is a terrible thing to say. I’m sure you are far from pretty yourself!
    Now to amba, she is a cute girl, she looks nice but her style is average. Going through the pictures, i was thinking that she’d look so much nicer with a pixie cut- the weaves overwhelm her dainty features.

    • Tim'tim

      March 12, 2014 at 10:25 am

      R u minding the smelling set of ‘THINGS’ criticizing? Yes i call u all THINGS. Cheap, dirty, ugly, looking set of THINGS. Continue with ur hateful attitude and see how it will ruin u all. RUBBISH THINGS.

      And bella pls post all my comments am sure u all r seeing the hateful comments they r dropping for the poor girl who innocently sent her pictures to u guys. The same way she’s receiving critics is the same way she should see pple who aren’t against her…. Thanks

    Mehn! Lots of people on here are wayyyyy too mean. Why must her style be out of the ordinary? Is she a celeb? Nope! She’s just a student. Y’all all need to go easy on the negative criticism.

    I think she looks young and pretty and I like her style…it suits her plus its very decent.

Just be truthful, if this babe said hello to you in any of those outfits would you not tell her she looked good? This of cos is assuming you’re not a hater in real life situations too sha…..

      You are an OBVIOUS HATER. Lol saying u are pretty has just proven u are really an ugly creature. Ok show urself and send ur pictures to Bella. If you don’t have money to buy all these doesn’t mean u wont get there someday. If u ever think why good things don’t come ur way is cos of ur jealousy attitude and hating behavior. But as soon as u free ur mind from those u will be fine.Buh till then keep hiding behind the comps to phew s**t.

    March 11, 2014 at 4:31 pm

    It’s not hating to say that her ‘style’ is not immediately identifiable. She dresses nice like many other young girls but her style is not distinctive…it’s just keeping with the trends. We need to understand that we talk about the word ‘style’, we refer to a unique mode of dressing/carriage that is easily identifiable with a particular individual. Trendy is not necessarily Stylish.

    • Tim'tim
