I just wanted to give you a taste of my Nigerian culture by showing you one of my African attires. I've actually worn a couple on this blog. This style is called the iro and buba (pronounced as it is spelled) and it is one of the oldest and most popular styles custom made and worn by many. Since most African attires are custom made, they fit perfectly and flatter any body shape. The top part (buba) is slightly loose fitting and the bottom part (the iro) is just a rectangular piece that is tied around the waist. You can wear it long or short. As you can see, the style disguises my apple shape. The last time I wore this outfit was 10 years ago and it still fits even though I've gained a bit of weight since then. I've also kept this simple by not wearing a gele (head tie) as seen here.
