Heineken Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2016 starts Tomorrow! Here are 4 Trends to Try at Fashion Week this Year



Hey BellaNaijarians!

#HeinekenLFDW2016 starts tomorrow and so I thought I’d give you a few trends to rock and to look out for at fashion week this year. There are loads of trends you could try but these are my top 4 picks (suited to my body shape & personal style), after looking through street style photos from the major fashion weeks in New York, London Milan & Paris.

I cant wait to see your street style looks at Lagos Fashion & Design Week this year!


Shirt Dresses

This shirt dress is a modern twist to the classic shirt, definitely a must try. They can be paired with skirts, trousers, jeans, heels, sneakers or flats. Pick your poison! I’m a skirt girl so my choice was obvious.

Asymmetric Sleeve

The cold shoulder/off shoulder trend has been so popular recently and a monostrap top is a great way to show some shoulder without being too direct with the trend. So amp up your wardrobe with a blast from the past and try a “monostrap” top with an exaggerated sleeve for something extra. Add a scarf as a chocker for a different take on the 90’s chocker trend, my all black outfit needed the colour.

You can also try wearing an off shoulder top as a monostrap top too!

Long Ruffle Sleeves & Off Shoulder Neckline

The Dynamic Duo. Mixing two of this seasons biggest trends in one piece makes the perfect blouse. Denim is another thing I really like, especially paired with a print or another denim piece… Which is what I did here and it just might be my favourite look.

Full Skirts & Sneakers

You know I love a full skirt and prints so this skirt is perfect but I decided to try something different with this look and try wearing it with sneakers! It’s something I see on other people and LOVE but I never thought it would look good on me, what do you think?
