How to style up for harmattan in Nigeria

Hows the weather in your area? If you’re not a Nigerian, you cannot appreciate harmattan. I mean, that’s about the coldest season we have when some are enjoying winter chills.

During this season, the weather is dry and a bit cold in the early and late hours. The afternoon sun is however not kidding cos it gets so hot.

You see why I said you can’t deal with this if you’re not Nigerian. Yet we enjoy the combo weather so much that we want long sleep during this season.

Back to our style talk, how do you dress up and make the best of this once in a year brief season.

If you’re like me, it’s the time to dig up those layered clothes and rock them.

A perfect season for kimonos.

Why Kimonos? Because they are your best friend when the weather does a bipolar switch by noon. Just pull off your overall and enjoy in your summer top and pants 👖 or slacks. Leggings are great choices, get the rooms that won’t show off your inner wears especially if you’re going to workplace.

What can you wear under your kimonos long and short?

1. Shorts and tops

2. Leggings and tops

3. Midi dresses

4. Short dresses

5. Long dresses

The list goes on. Just style up and look amazing for yourself.

Don’t forget to use some cool fragrances, smell good hmmmmmmm.

You can buzz me to order from my beautiful kimono collections, you will definitely want to order more for you and your friends.

I searched my wardrobe frantically and saw that as a a lover of dark colors, majority of My clothes are falling in the same range.

Not a good idea for a fashionista

Are you like me?

Or should we do a wardrobe check to know if you also have a majority of some colour line.

It’s cool to try on some new colors.

For me, certain colors lift my spirits and I am certainly not the only one.

I didn’t like pink, but at a recent event I wore pink and Girl!!!! I felt really cool and sweet.

This season has some new color trends. Muted colors is on the rise. It means a lighter or a bit duller shade of the bright colors.

I love Mustard Yellow in particular. Its really beautiful, oozes some confidence, and gives you that “Boss Chic” style.

Here are my picks for the week as seen on the net. You could try some out. And if you need any of these as a ready to wear. Feel free to contact me. I deliver worldwide.

DRESS-FOR-LESS 2016. (Season 4.)

We often get questions about how Dress-For-Less came by, how it works, do we make profit? , why do we sell at such unbelievable prices, is it really possible?… Yes it looks impossible,  and in this present situation of the country, it looks like a “scheme”. But Dress-For-Less is as Real as Real is.

What Birthed Dress-For-Less?


Lets do a little background on DFL. Few years ago, We had a vision and mission to empower one very special student in the College (then DGV FASHION ACADEMY). The passion was great and so was the need to achieve the vision. We thought of ways to raise the cash and came up with the community service initiative. We arrived at making new clothes and sell at no-profit rates, all to raise the needed funds. It was very successful,  and we realised many people were even happier. We achieved more than our goal, we put smiles on many faces. They could spend less on looking good for Christmas. The satisfaction and joy was a big plus to our vision. 

And the feedback was, ‘don’t let this stop’….. so it became an annual cause and a part of it still goes back to spreading smiles in the spirit of Christmas. And since then, it’s been a good story year over year.

The 2016 edition is the 4th one. And it comes with a twist. It’s about one time the country is facing a direction many of us don’t understand. This is more reason we are determined to spread more smiles, more joy, more love and happiness and ease the tight air around us. 

The prices are coming as low as #500 -#2000. Is it easy on our part? NO! Is it worth it? YES!!!!!!! If there is a time DFL is needed, we think it’s now. You can now spread the remaining budget on other Christmas expenses. If you want to give affordable gifts to people, DFL is the place to be. It’s the season to give, we are giving back and we hope many will too. 

If you’re coming to shop at DFL, we plead that you come early. People arrive before shopping doors open, it’s like our version of ‘Black Friday’. The exchange rate is not speaking sweet language in this season, but our sales is speaking more than sweetness to all ears.

This edition is coming with lots of freebies from chocolates from The Choc Boy – that choc genius, to cupcakes from the talented Creamy Tops, and hand dryers , clippers and more for heavy shoppers. All from good hearts who want to spread joy of the season around too. Don’t arrive late, all gifts are on first come, early shoppers basis.

And Yes nothing sells above #2000, it’s a sacrificial promise and we are keeping it. Don’t just get for yourself , look around and make someone happy this season. All acts are seeds. Sow Joy reap more Joy.

The buzz is everywhere about Dress For Less. 

What is Dress For Less?

Dress For Less was birthed a couple of years back by DGVStyles, a leading clothier in Ibadan. The first version was aimed at raising funds to empower and start-up a physically challenged student of the Fashion College named DGV FASHION ACADEMY (now IBADANCITY FASHION COLLEGE). And it was a huge success. 

Apart from the man who got startup equipments, every one who shopped at dress for less had a huge smile on their faces. As top quality ready-to-wear outfits were sold at almost free prices. 

The brain behind the idea, Ronke Olubanjo, in her words said “Dress for less is my passion. I dream of seeing everyone being able to get what they want at prices that won’t even shake their purses. When you leave the country, you can buy at affordable rates either during sales or promo seasons, many buy this and sell at high costs leaving the average Nigerian at no choice but to buy fairly used (Grade A etc) outfits. Not everyone likes to be seen at the fairly used stalls, but when your pocket is saying the truth to your face, sometimes life leaves you with no choice . This is the main reason behind Dress For Less. 


Dress at a lesser price and still get the quality you desire. 

At Dress For Less each year, outfits are sold for as low #500 and the best designs go for between #3500-4000. These are items you won’t get outside for less that times 4/5 of dress for less prices.  


This year’s event which comes up on Saturday 19th of December – the Saturday before Christmas. Will hold at IBADANCITY FASHION COLLEGE. Located at 4, Ajia Street. Behind IBEDC office (Capital building ring road) Ibadan.  (Follow the tarred road opposite KFC ring road)

The twist coming to this year’s event is the launch of a programme tagged “FASHIONPRENEURS” this is a scheme for anyone who desires to resell DFL clothing. Such people are to register on or before the event by sending mail declaring their interest to retail to or 

Fashionpreneurs will be opportune to buy all year round at the DFL rates and resell at their own prices suitable for their markets. Fashionpreneurs will be able to order what their market needs and get them delivered to them where they are. The goal is to empower and make people start their boutique businesses with as little as #5000. Registration is free. Simply attend DFL 2015 or send someone to purchase and register for you. 

Individuals who will want to order for personal uses from January 2016 will be able to just at a slightly higher rate than fashionpreneurs’ prices. Items will be shipped to them at charges based on their destination. 

The DFL range from 2016 will include all clothing items , unisex and kids and many more. Simply connect on Instagram @dgvstyles to get full details or like the Facebook page – DGVSTYLES. Money making without stress – someone’s chance is here!!!

This year DFL shopping will kickoff by 8am. Shop early so you can have the rest of the day to prepare for Christmas. Last year, all items sold out in about 2 hours. Everyone likes good things and when it’s affordable, it’s a plus all the way.
