Yet another Koroga Festival is upon us and ladies I bet most of you already have your outfits ready. If you have no clue what to wear or you are still piecing the bits together here are a few ideas that may help. Remember the idea is to look super casual but still have a stylish ensemble. Being a music concert as well as an afternoon picnic affair make sure whatever you wear allows you to dance, jump, sit or whatever situation you find yourself in.
The Third Piece
Third pieces are a must-have piece as they transform an ordinary casual outfit to look more glam. Sleeveless coats, Kimonos and Kaftans are good picks. You can work with a light or heavy item. This will depend on how hot or chilly the weather is. If you feel like you need a new way to wear what you already have in your closet invest in one of these.
You know you want to. Whether it’s a romper, skater skirt, hot pants; a little number is a good choice for festivals. If it’s cold you could wear tights or stockings underneath. So let the weather not deter you from showing some leg. Remember the third piece we just talked about? It comes in handy if this is the direction you wish to go with.
Go for an Ankara statement piece that will have other girls walking up to you to ask who and where you had your outfit made. When it comes to Ankara, there are countless of options. You just have to decide if you want to have accents of it or a top and bottom combo. Pairing up an Ankara skirt piece with a plain tee is always easy and fab.
If there was one default look for such an occasion; maxis would definitely be it. Maxi dresses or maxi skirts are long and flowy and will give you both comfort and elegance. It does not get better than that. Find a maxi dress or skirt that fits perfectly (especially one that is long enough) tsk tsk and you are good to go. You can choose neutral shades or floral patterns with some accessories to complete the look.
Get your makeup and accessories right.
No outfit is complete without accessorizing. Stick to flat shoes but don’t go for a boring pair as this may just dampen your look. It’s time to get those slip ons, converses et al out. Hats and sunglasses are also a necessity and if you are feeling adventurous take it a notch higher with face art as part of your makeup. Speaking of makeup, although the occasion may not call for a full face beat take the time to do your brows, have a popping lip and some concealer of you need it.
Is that look coming together now? What are some of your festival fashion essentials?
