Happy new month everyone,
This is a not so new trend because lots of ladies have rocked the silk or chiffon knot tie iro and buba since Tiffany Amber launched it.
But here am going to focus on the combination of both fabrics in making fabulous traditional/ native outfits.
One unique thing about this particular combination is that both the silk and chiffon often carry same prints/designs even though they are two different fabrics.
I love the use of these two fabrics in making stylish iro and buba styles also known as oleku; where chiffon fabric is used as buba and the silk as the wrapper /iro.
Nowadays the buba has shifted from the regular round neck, long sleeved and free size top to more sophisticated forms e.g. the off shoulder buba, the cape buba, the fitted short sleeve buba, the cowl neck buba etc.
The wrapper too can be tied in the normal conventional way or knot tied (also known as the tulip style wrapper).
Below are pictures of fabulous people in the silk/chiffon combo:
