Work clothes!

As a fashionable Nigerian woman (or man,) finding fashionable staples that don’t draw stares in the office and can segue beautifully into dinner and a dance are almost impossible to find. Yet, there are several Nigerian labels dedicated to doing just that.

If you’ve struggled to find clothes that are sexy but don’t look like they fell off a runway or worse, some club bathroom, then this list is for you.

Since Eve and Tribe came to Nigeria six years ago, they have become the literal Hail Mary for women looking for fashionable work clothes, releasing small cachets of clothes every three months and with affordable pricing (nothing at Eve and Tribe costs more than 22k) they’re your best bet for taking your work wardrobe from drag to glam. With a flagship store in Ikoyi and stocking deals with Zazaii in V.I, plus a functional online store, they’re like gold in every way.
