360Fashion STYLE DIARY is gaining more popularity daily, with more fashion enthusiasts being featured. This week we’ll be featuring a girly girl, NNEKA NWOKEOCHA.
Fashion is an art and the art is usually learned gradually by many, but not Nneka! Fashion is a lifestyle for her, the combination of pieces, colours, and patterns comes naturally creating the beautiful and unique full outfits we see on her. I’m totally excited to see her diary, been while since we featured a lady!
You are welcome to Nneka’s 360Fashion Style Diary: Day 1
This is my first entry. I think one of the most important features I try to incorporate into my outfits\dressing these days is layers/structure (the others being prints/pattern and more pattern). The one item that encompasses the wholesomeness of the word “structure” is this spring dark bluegreen pea-coat (given to me by my mother) arguably one of the better gifts I have received from her.
First off, I love the hue; the green is not too dark as too make it too glum for spring, but is also just bright enough to add a tinge of colour to fall and winter. The length is perfect and the gold buttons are the “Top notch” feature as they add a hint of elegance to the coat itself.
These photos were taken during the first week of spring and I have to admit it was still a bit chilly even for spring. I remember being so agitated to bask in the refreshing nature of said season that I wore this embellished cropped bustier (It is actually not a bandeau) only to set out for Uni and realise what a huge mistake that choice was. I hurried back in to pull something over it, found this powder blue see-through shirt perching over my closet and so I threw that on and tied the tail ends.
This pair of high-waist denim (my very own modern variant of mom jeans) is easily one of the most comfortable pair of pants in my closet. The fit is amazing and it has a very 70s touch to it especially when folded.
The houndstooth blazer was mainly just for the cold although it adds an additional layer to the ensemble. I steered clear of putting on colour because I wanted the coat to do more of the talking.
The Leopard print shoes were put in place to contrast with the pattern of the blazer. And lastly, what says 70s more than a pair of groovy colour-rimmed frames?
Have a lovely day,
