The senator clothes are usually made in black, blue and grey – more strict and strong colours.
There are variations, made in red, white, and even yellow, but in these cases the colours are less bright and a bit dimmed, probably due to the material they are made out of.
Senator native designs also look quite minimalistic, yet still with a traditional vibe coming from them.
They are usually situated on the collar, chest and/or belly and are made with a contrasting colour with the main one.
The bottom part of the suit usually completely matches the top one – the senator cloth style remains the same, except for the ornaments – there are none.
The color matches completely too, which creates a feeling of a one-piece suit.
The senator suit usually is completed with a hat. A popular thing is to use a traditional Igbo hat, which usually has a contrasting with a whole wear colour.
You can also try a hat with wide eaves, which, even if it has a matching to the outfit colour, will definitely attract a lot of attention.
