From Print To Jumpsuit


From Print To Jumpsuit

Happy Sunday to all my Fashionistas!

Hope you are having an awesome one?

Fashion in my definition, is the ability to express my inherent creativeness in items of clothing, foot wears, hair and accessories in a manner that is distinctive to me and not forgetting about making a statement with it, whether I am following a trend or not. Bear in mind that, not following a trend is also a fashion statement.

But really, does fashion have to follow a trend? What’s your opinion?

I got the print of focus sometime last year from @cotoikscollection. It was such a beauty to behold. The print and texture feels so warm I couldn’t wait to style it. Several styles flooded my idea box ranging from a high waist palazzo pants worn with an off-white tank top to a sleeveless long waistcoat worn with an all-white outfit (probably a dress or a pant). Alas! I ended up with a ¾ length wide feet palazzo jumpsuit though my fabric wasn’t enough to achieve a full wide feet but I still love the minimalist look, don’t you?

Why didn’t I make the above mentioned styles, you may ask? The high waist palazzo pants might restrict me to just a casual look while the long waistcoat seems like a waste of my precious fabric. With my ¾ wide feet palazzo jumpsuit, I can achieve a dressy look (I wore this outfit to a wedding), throw on a denim jacket with a flat sandal and my slim shoulder bag for a casual weekend outing and/or an Afrocentric look with a turban and wedge heel for a church service (seriously thinking about styling this look). Secondly, the fabric was about a 2-yardage or more, part of the reason I made a ¾ length.

I do not have an illustration or a sketch of this outfit like I would normally do when I am describing what I want to my tailor reason being that, I did not actually create this style. I got the inspiration from an outfit on Instagram. Hers was a brown & grey wool fabric with a full wide feet but I can tell you, my print design and texture added a more trendy touch. So yes! You can achieve this style with different kinds of fabric as well as Ankara.

Ha! This photo shot session isn’t for amateurs. I wonder how models do it. I only had a stint with runway modelling during my uni days. Biko, I’m letting my shoes off until my next style post.

So tell me, What other way would you style this fabric? A jumpsuit like mine or a high waist palazzo pants?

    The print jumpsuit looks nice on you.
    I have seen someone wear ankara jumpsuit but the trouser feet was pencil and full length.
    I think your tailor did a good job especially with the neat fixing of the
    zip. Nothing I like so much like a tailor that does neat finishing
