Velvet is crazily popular as a style worn to weddings and other important events in Nigeria. It looks its best when combined with lace detail of a brighter shade. The brighter the colors, the trendier you look.

4. Oleku fashion short Iro and Buba

Iro and Buba are the styles that are popular among middle-aged women in South West Nigeria (the early fifties to eighties). These styles are gradually transformed into fashionable Oleku.

Iro and Buba have recently been revamped and altered to become trendier and be suitable for the younger girls who enjoy wearing ‘four corners’, high neck, scallop-neck, v-neck, and cowl neck that have come to replace the boring round neck. Sleeves can also be shorter while the blouses are more fitted and playful.

There are other new twists to the style besides short sleeves and short wrappers – Nigerian fashion designers are also experimenting with prints and colors mixing. For instance, they blend an ordinary or French lace Buba with an Ankara wrapper; Adire Buba with damask or Aso-Oke wrapper to create really stunning trendy outfits.
