GOOD FASHION TIPS FOR THIS HARMATTAN SEASON

GOOD FASHION TIPS FOR THIS HARMATTAN SEASON

Honestly I don’t know how our ancestors managed it in those days either. Were the animal skins malleable enough to make something beautiful yet warm enough for many an African winter night? Or did they care less about looking good than surviving in the cold? I don’t know. For me however, fashion is not a seasonal thing, it’s culture, a way of life. It is an expression of you, so why keep silent for a few months just because of cold and dust?

Thanks to African designers who take consumer comfort into consideration before producing, we can look smart and chic in this season. It’s more about what you conceal and how creatively you can conceal it this season. Unless you have found some wonder lotion, keep your legs and chests away from the harmattan as much as you can, fashion is not blistering, irritated skin.

Think high necks, three-quarter skirts and high boots. Chimamanda Adichie understands how to make knee-length boots and Ankara tops work. Another thing to consider is the fabric you’re wearing. Avoid nylon and make sure your sequins are sewn safely away from your skin. The sun can get extremely hot in the afternoons, so wear things that cover, yet remain comfortable.

Guys this is the best time to wear jackets and suits, mix in prints without any fear. Get print long-sleeve shirts to go with plane trousers or vice-versa. The weather is dry and will lend the air a kind of colorlessness and desolation so dabbling with colors and patterns will easily make you stand out from the crowd.

Try cotton if the sun gets too hot at afternoon; avoid fabrics like nylon that could cause abrasion on the skin. Your clothes shouldn’t be too tight or too loose especially in evenings. Harmattan is the time of meeting friends and family you might have not seen throughout the year so it is natural to want to look your best.

But trust me, it is not the time to pick up those barb wire dresses and basket-brassier from the runway.
