Bored with wearing dark, bulky winter clothing? We can’t blame you but why not do something unusual? Step out of your style comfort zone. Experiment with textures, concepts and colours.
Last Sunday, this lovely lady stepped into church and I had to marvel at her creativity. Wanting a change from the de rigueur turtle necks, jumpers and sweaters, she layered a wax print buba over her jersey turtle neck sweater and long, full skirt. To tweak the buba, she cinched it with a wide, stretchy belt, rolled the buba’s sleeves so that they fell over the sweater’s streamlined sleeves. To complete the outfit, she wrapped a length of the Ankara fabric (the iro actually) around her head, and completed the outfit with sturdy boots and, hey presto, a smashing outfit was born.
