The fierce Nigerian Afro pop singer, Yemi Alade, isn’t short on admirers from, not just Nigeria, but – we dare say – all of Africa. We aren’t just referring to her pretty face and hot bod that women wish they had and men want to have, it’s her voice too; the one that leaves an imprint of goose bumps on our skin, it’s also her style; we aren’t surprised she won the Most Stylish Female Celebrity Award.
We wouldn’t mind learning a thing or two 4 things from the stylish-ista
She’s a hair-chameleon
The naturalista isn’t afraid to thread through daring places. Always armed with an outlandish colourful hairdo (that somehow always works), Yemi is slowly becoming a natural hair icon.
Tip: move steps away from the ‘boring black’ hair colour and give your mane a burst of hue – blond, blue, pink and burgundy come to mind.
Her style of clothing is Bipolar
When she isn’t performing in sexy skin baring outfits on stage or walking the red carpet in skin hugging dresses, she’s off stage casually chilling in boxy-silhouettes. Making her reside at the crossroad where tomboy meets girly girl.
Tip: diversify your wardrobe and switch up your looks. Choose ultra-sexy outfits for a night time look, but opt for an ambisexual casual look during the day. But always have a print element.
She ‘walks’ a good shoe-game
Words fail us… Yemi’s shoe game is… lit!
Can we just raid her shoe closet already? What thrills us most is her on-stage-swoon-worthy-shoe-game; gyrating in towering statement heels, we are left puzzled. Can we have her gams too, thank you!
Tip: Whether in heels or flats, stick to structure and strut with swag.
She gives tribal meanings to accessories.
If you’ve been on the singer’s style trail like we have, you would have at some point, ogled at her African inspired accessories. We don’t have to ogle in vain no more, she announced (if you term an Instagram post an announcement) the debut of her jewelry collection on November 5, 2015 and we are brewing with excitement. We can guess what to expect: colour; more colour; and lots of colour!
Tip: patiently wait on the collection, then snag them all as fast as you can.
Johnny can wait, we are after Yemi’s style!
