Hi, BellaNaijarians!

#BellaStylista is a new BN 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.


With the beginning of a new fashion season, our style stars are mixing the old with the new; summer + fall trends. Statement t-shirts and denim aka street style uniform are still making rounds, but we welcome twists to it like @toseen21‘s deconstructed denim and @jtofashion‘s strap up pants.

While some others, especially the men are more loyal to full corporate ensembles, we’re loving the way formal grey plaid jackets are being incorporated into chic street style.

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!


Spot the Trend

Gone are the days when lengthy skirts were only for religious gatherings and modest outings. Long skirts have found a way into our wardrobes and we can’t stop styling them. From knife pleats to edgy slits our #BellaStylistas are embracing longer skirts for an extra feminine look and that seamless transition from day to night.


Fashion Highlight of the Week

Toke Makinwa was a sight to behold at the Grand Finale of Aquafina Elite Model Look Nigeria wearing a canary yellow Gert Johan-Coetzee dress. She shimmered all through the night in a sleek and subtle facebeat by Anita Brows complimenting her perfectly pulled back hair done by Toyen Meriben.

She carried a Bottega Veneta Purse and wore minimal accessories from Liberty Studios all stylishly put together by Harvella Styles.

Tiwa Savage also had a Cinderella moment on Monday night wearing a velvet and organza fabric Gert Johan-Coetzee dress.

That wraps it up for Issue 5.
