Gone are the days that Agbada styles are strictly worn by men. In fact, Agbada is usually made from fabric that are said to be masculine. Agbada, originally worn by the Yoruba ethnic group, from the south western part of Nigeria, seem to have some traditional undertone as it is mostly worn by Monarchs, Chiefs and Kings. Agbada is a long, flowing robe with wide sleeves often decorated with embroidery. Time and tide changes, and the Agbada Trend isn’t left out.

Female fashion in Nigeria is at its peak, and honestly, creativity has never been this high  and that’s what makes this  trend so interesting. The Female Agbada trend started late 2014 and when you thought The female Agbada was just about to die out, celebrities like Toke Makinwa, Uche Jumbo, Kate Henshaw and Linda Ejiofor, stepped out looking fabulous in style.

Nigerian female fashionistas would rock the men inspired Agbada with head gears, fedoras or befitting hair wig/packed hair. The options to accessories that can be used with the Agbada are simply limitless when it comes to styling. For a more feminine feel it would be best to pair your Agbada with heels, this gives it a chic and refined feminine look or with a pair of Shoe.

These lady prove that the Agbada is not solely for men as she teamed up with one of Nigeria’s Emerging Fashion Photographer, Mopo Jacobs. In charge of Makeup was the amazing Tommy of @ChrissieTouch

Enjoy!
