I would say high waist jeans and high waist skirts.

What informs your dress sense?

I wear what makes me comfortable. If I wouldn’t feel good about myself when I go out, I wouldn’t put that dress on.

Where do you get those fashionable items to buy?

A couple of fashionable stores selling good things, Yaba market is also there. There are a lot of places to buy good fashion items. Being able to identify and combine them is what matters.

How much does it cost to be fashionable?

It costs a lot of money. A good skirt ranges from N2,000 to N5,000. You have to buy make up and other accessories too.

Joggers, high waist trousers, crop tops, artificial dreadlocks, Brazilian wool, vintage shirts, boyfriend jeans and bandage gowns

What informs your dress sense?

Right from time, I have been very fashionable. I believe your appearance matters. Even if I have not eaten for days, I must look good.

Where do you get the fashionable items from?

US Plaza. I like unique wears. I don’t like wearing what everybody wears. My sister is a traveller, she helps me get some of my wears when she travels. I will just tell her what is in vogue here and she gets them for me. My boyfriend also sends stuffs to me. He is not in Nigeria.

How much does it cost to be fashionable?

It is money. One thing I like about Lagos is that no matter how much you have, you will get something good to buy. With N5,000, you will get nice wears. If I want to calculate what I have on me, from head to toe, I will say 30,000. It costs a fortune to look good.

High waist jeans, chiffon tops, T-shirts, flat shoes, pencil skirts, pant trousers. That is in terms of wears.  When it comes to hair style, I will say Ghana weaving, Rihanna cut and braids.

What informs your dress sense?

I wear what makes me feel comfortable. I have been fashion conscious since I was in secondary school. I care a lot about what I wear. I like looking smart, beautiful and unique. I just love looking good.

Where do you get the fashionable items from?

I buy from boutiques, a lot of students sell good stuffs. I buy from those that have a sense of fashion.

There are a lot of good items out there, having a sense of fashion, identifying them and having a sense of good combination is what you need.

How much does it cost to be fashionable?

There is no specific amount. What works for A, might not work for B. It varies but it costs a bit. Once you are fashion conscious. You will save towards looking good.
