Hi, BellaNaijarians!

#BellaStylista is a new BellaNaija Style series for fashionistas who kill it every day! For work or play, this list is to inspire you as we celebrate those who inspire us with their sense of style. We’ll be sharing the top trends, fabulous street style looks and our fashion highlights for each week.


The weather and the end-of-the-year rush may make us less than energized and keep our style gloomy. Bright hues which are eye-catching, confident and cheering are great for this period. This week, BellaStylistas all around the world tapped into the power of bright coloured outfits and accessories to uplift the mood… the brighter, the merrier.

Guess what trend we’re still holding on to? Statement-making sleeves! Puff, trumpet, or bell, sleeves are getting more dramatic with each outfit. Maybe we won’t be leaving this trend in 2017 afterall.

Check out our favourite styles this week & don’t forget to tag us with #BellaStylista or send your photos and Instagram handle to [email protected] to be featured next week!
