BOUBOU STYLES

Hello everyone,

Hope y’all doing well? I promised to be consistent but I haven’t kept to my promise in my last post HERE

But as they say it’s better late than never 😉

Eid holidays will soon be here and you get to see loads of rams up for sale around Lagos at this time which is a reminder that Eid- Kabir is around the corner.

Fashion wise, it’s a time where the whole family source for fabrics perfect for Eid.

One of the most comfortable outfits yet elegant styles for women at this time is the BOUBOU style. It’s easy to make and very comfortable to wear as you can move around, serve food, attend to visitors during the festive season.

The last time I had a party and I was confused on what to make with my asoebi because I didn’t have enough time to get it to a tailor on time infact I had less than 24hrs and I just didn’t want to make iro and buba, I just asked someone to make my fabric into a BOUBOU and I got it ready in less than 1hr. I just matched it a turban, long earrings, bracelet and wristwatch and I was so happy unfortunately I didn’t get to take pictures which would have been perfect for this post.

But here, I have some beautiful BOUBOU style options for you to choose from incase you are opting for the comfortable yet elegant look:

Guipure laces are one of the best fabrics for boubou styles but the truth is I have seen amazing boubou styles made from tulle laces, adire fabrics, brocade fabrics and even Ankara fabrics. So it all depends on your budget. You can use guipure lace, cord lace, milk fibre lace (like I showed you in my last post HERE), silk fabric, chiffon fabric etc

On choosing colors for boubou, I personally love the classic white for boubous. White colour is versatile as you can match it with any color of turban or asooke and it’s so easy to accessorize.

Also depending on your body size, you can opt for a colorful fabric, prints or plain. I love to use plain fabric even though in my last birthday photo shoot HERE I wore a multicoloured guipure lace boubou which was so beautiful but because my fashion language is subtle yet stunning I still prefer plain fabrics for boubou.

Let see more pictures:

ANKARA

Hi all, been a while. I have been very busy lately moving from one location to another………………………..
I have been living in the northern part of Nigeria, Kano precisely for about 7 years and enjoyed my stay until the Boko haram insurgence surfaced. Life has since been unbearable and we all lived in fear.
So I started talking to God about moving out of the north and few weeks ago I was transferred to the south! Praise God!
Enough about my relocation gist…., now to today’s post;

ANKARA
Ankara fabrics are vibrant patterns of very rich colorful designs. It is mostly made of 100% cotton or cotton poly material. Originally the wax resist dyed fabrics were exported to the Gold Coast and spread over West Africa into Central Africa and were largely produced in Nigeria. They became extremely popular over time and were initially worn as every day casual outfits customized to suit the designs of the person wearing it.

As I thought of writing this post, the wedding ceremony of my friend Sunday and his heartthrob shade came to my mind.
Sunday and shade picked a purple with gold and white design Ankara material

I made a dress with a golden organza material as my bolero/jacket

What’s your take on the aso- ebi?

The Ankara material is very versatile that’s why lots of young people like to use it as aso-ebi.
Apart from being affordable, you can mix and match with other materials depending on your creativity.

I also love the pic below; it’s a brown and white colored Ankara material. So beautiful…………….
