I love the agbada trend but I’ve always been a bit reserved because I feel it might certainly overwhelm me (Note, am a smallish person), so I’ve been avoiding this trend but this is about to change since I have found a more refreshing and progressive way to pull off the Agbada style.
For those of you who don’t know what an Agbada is; its a style that has been strictly associated with the Male species for years, and it originated from the south western part of Nigeria and some parts of Benin republic. The agbada design comes in three prices, the pants, the inner danshiki and the Agbada cover, with three piece to choose from there is the option of rocking the two top half’s together or apart anyone would be just fine.
The feminine version also looks exactly like the male version with a little nip here and there to make it suit our physique but some very creative people have puled out their thinking caps and they have come up with more stylish ways to rock the Agbada, Rather than rocking it in a completely androgynous style, they’ve added feminine touches, Here is a more progressive way of rocking the Agbada /Danshiki look.
* With Ankara and jeans.
*Pairing it with a fedora.
*Retro and denim.
*Berets and Pearls
*Shorts, cuffs and a Martinee.
*Keeping it in Form.
