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:
