Last year turbans made a terrific come back into the Nigerian fashion scene and it became a ‘rave’. I remember some 20yrs back when my mum use to rock the turban fabric as headtie on Ankara dresses. Then she had the stripped and multicolored long velvet turbans that was like a scarf and you have to wrap it around your head for that elegant look. Now the new turban/ headers are easy to wear because it’s sewn into a cap shape and all you need to do is wrap the ‘tail’ part round and you are good to slay and pepper dem!
Also these headwraps have been twisted a bit to fit into our current fashion ‘taste’ and loads of party guests who can’t handle the stress of tying gele now opt for the turbans. They now come in different gorgeous designs and colors made from all sorts of beautiful fabrics and not just velvet fabrics. And are super comfortable (which is a very important factor in fashion).
The turban is now an essential part of your native wear wardrobe and can be worn on all kinds of outfits to create an elegant look especially on a bad hair day. Every woman needs a turban!

Happy Easter Holidays people! It’s the celebration of the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ and the finished work on Calvary (Hallelujah)!
From time immemorial the African woman especially Nigerian women are known to always compliment their outfits with turban, scarves and headtie.
The headtie to us is what the hat means to the European women especially when you are going to church, social functions and for all kinds of festivities.
There’s this special touch the headtie popularly known as gele gives to the native outfit be it iro and buba or skirt and blouse and even the simple boubou beyond covering of hair. Gele makes you stand out, it’s traditional and oozes elegance.
So today, am focusing on the sego gele which is a ( not so ) new kind of gele that has found its way into the heart of most ladies.
It is a bit softer than the old type of gele (favourite part for younger ladies) and it comes in 2piece per pack , so you can share one pack with a friend/ sister or use the second half as ipele.
They also come in different patterns and colors to match any kind of fabric.
Let’s see some beautiful samples of Sego gele that you can rock to your next event or even to church on a bad hair day *winks* :
