African Prints in the Workplace

African Prints in the Workplace

Hey dears, long time no fashion post…I still need me a good camera and time to go to awesome locations to shoot.

A blogger friend of mine, Tolulope Ogunmekan started  a #pepperthemchallenge on Instagram which I participated in and I’m really glad I did. The idea behind the challenge was to state truthfully how much each of the items you wear costs.

The essence is to make others who feel very low about themselves and what they wear understand that you do not need to really look super expensive to fit in. All you need is to love yourself, appreciate what you have and walk with pride like a queen and you’d see people admiring you with great respect.

People will say looking good costs much but I disagree because I know a number of people who will make cheap clothes really look expensive- I am one of them.

Naaaa, you don’t need them Prada, Gucci, and all those heavy names to make a statement. All you need is you! Trust me, wear what you own with all sense of ‘realness’ and pride and people will admire you for it.

Create your own style and be different. You get lost in the crowd when you follow trend…

Overtime, I have always wondered why we can’t wear African prints to work. I don’t mean offices where they have strict dress codes but the flexible ones and we still find staffs struggling to buy new corporate shirts and pants/skirts every now and then when you can just make that your favourite dress/blazer/skirt with that African prints that has been lying in your closet for years.

In this post, i will be sharing pictures where I have rocked African prints to work on a day that is not Friday (people usually think you can only wear African prints to work on Fridays). All you need is its simplicity and not one that looks like you are attending an owanbe – remember you are going to the office.

The beauty of this is that you can re-rock and remake one fabric into multiple styles and wear them in different ways like I have done. Look fabulous in less costly outfits!





There you have it, darlings. Which is your best? Which would you prefer not to rock to work? Have you ever rocked an African print to rock? Do you agree that people should rock African prints to work? Join the discussion…

Until next time…
