Monochromes - Again

Palazzo Perfect

"It's a new era in fashion and there are no rules" 
~Alexander Mc. Queen

Are palazzos even still in? Lol. I don't know but they're comfortable so let's talk about them.

They are ridiculously easy to wear and so comfortable, you might as well be wearing your pyjamas.

Here are a few tips on how to style your favorite palazzo pants.

•With a fitted tank, tucked in

•With a loose-fitted top to achieve a slouchy laid back look

•With a fitted shirt and/or a blazer

•With a crop top

Make sure your pants are the right length to avoid a clumsy look.

Wear with heels but ensure that the hem of the pants cover the shoes entirely to allow for a sophisticated look.

Now, these pants work better on slender silhouettes but if you're not so slender and would love to rock them, keep these in mind;

•Wear darker colors and shades (darker colors are slimming)
•Pair with a structured blazer; better if it falls below the hips
•Wear in small prints or no prints at all

Until Next Time,
It's Tee


  1. Check your mail, I've dropped in pictures of me in palazzo.

  2. How about adding a picture or two with some blacks in it. I'm of the opinion that most looks are more fitting and "fine" on Caucasians but I'm sure a picture or two with Africans could change my perception. Or maybe I'm just being old-fashioned. Good post again.

    1. Haha. Okay Eazzzeee, we'll keep that in mind for subsequent posts. Thank you :D

  3. Lol ! Yeah you should tru using some black sisters too😊 I pulled the palazzo look with a loose fitting top and it looked great too. You should check it out on my Instagram page. Cheers.....Isabella

    1. Lol, okay BeePosh, I guess we will announce our posts ahead of time, that way we can feature pictures of our readers who have rocked the trend yes?!

  4. Wud love my girlfriend rocking that.

1, 2, Ways To Style Your White Button-down Shirt

"Fashion is not necessarily about labels or brands. It's about something else that comes from within you" - Ralph Lauren
 I feel the need to apologize in advance for the number of Ankara outfits that you'll find here. After garri (well, any form of swallow really) and soup, my next favorite thing is Ankara, closely followed by retro prints.
In this post, we're styling a basic white button-down shirt in two refreshing ways.
Now, a white button-down shirt is a wardrobe essential. Like a little black dress or a pair of very flattering jeeans, it is a fashion must-have.
It is chic through all seasons, for all ages and it works for about just every event.
For the first look, I tucked my white button-down shirt into an Ankara pencil, midi length skirt for a tailored appeal.
This simple ensemble can work for the office on a Monday or a Friday as the case may be.
Aiming for a more casual feel in the second look, I decided to pair my white button-down shirt with a pair of…

3, 4 Ways To Style Your White Button-down Shirt

"Elegance is not standing out but being remembered"- Giorgio Armani
Because 1, 2 Ways To Style Your White Button-down Shirt was such a favorite, we're back with another one!
It can not be over emphasized. A white button-down shirt is the real deal. Its tailored shape brings elegance to both casual and formal ensembles alike.
There really aren't a lot of wardrobe essentials that we lean on more than this statement piece. I know I said that about the basic white tee and maybe a couple of other fashion items, but stay with me here. Okay?
This time I decided to take it up a notch (or I'd like to think that's what I did).
In the first look which is my favorite of the two, I have on an Ankara pinafore over my white button-down shirt. This had me reminiscing on my secondary school days  Funny enough, I couldn't wait to graduate from Junior Secondary just so I could get out of wearing pinafores. Now they're stylish. Yay! Fashion. 

For the second look which is…

Dressing Appropriately for Your Body Type

"The dress should follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress" - Hubert de Givenchy
Hello everyone! Long time no see. I'm sorry, life has been, well, life.
Over the months, I've gotten E-mails with questions in the line of "Oh this looks so good, do you think it would look good on me too". Then, there's my friend and flat mate Ehimen who doesn't wear any colors except black because she thinks they''ll make her look big. I thought about these and I decided to put together a little guide to help you dress appropriately for your body type.
Now, essentially, there are four body types; the hour glass, the apple, the banana and the pear.

THE HOURGLASS You know you're hourglass when you're extremely curvy with a tiny waist.
Work towards highlighting your curves and not hiding them. You can achieve this via belts.
For bottoms, wear a lot of pencil skirts and wide-legged pants.

Wrap dresses are perfect.
For tops, …
