Lisa Folawiyo is basically synonymous with directional African fashion, and is a go-to for daily fashion inspiration. The designer, who recently released a lookbook for her AW 18 collection, was spotted on the gram in this all black look.

What caught our attention? Lisa wore an unexpected ensemble that we couldn’t get over. She styled an oversize blazer with a pair of biker shorts. (Yup, you read that right.)

Long championed by the ubiquitous Kar-Jenner clan, Hailey Baldwin, and the Hadid sisters, as well as spotted on the runways at Off-White and Saint Laurent, the biker shorts trend is a pretty hard sell, but leave it to African fashionista par excellence to give us street style inspo for days.

This is possibly the first time we’ve seen the biker shorts trend styled in a distinctly fashionable yet relatable way. She completed the look with the Louis Vuitton Petite Malle, round sunnies, beige satin pumps and a leather belt worn looped around her waist for extra definition.
