#LFDW2017: 5 street style trends you should incorporate in your look this week

Fashion week has come and gone but has left behind wardrobe-loads of style inspiration for all of us to glean from for as long as trends allow.

The Lagos Fashion and Design Week runway had more than enough to offer; from wearable pieces to those that only gave aesthetic pleasure. But street fashion through the 4-day duration gave us a bottomless pit of copy-worthy styles to snag as we go through the coming weeks.

The good thing about street fashion is how incredibly replicable it is. There’s never been the need to break the bank, all your favourite style bloggers and fashion enthusiasts at the fashion week didn’t. From oversized jackets to dramatic eyewear, your closet contains pieces that are waiting to be paired for fashion week-inspired style takeover this new week.


Remember we told you red is the official colour of the season? It’s gotten the stamp of approval from fashionistas worldwide and at fashion week, we saw enough red from head-to-toe outfits to convince us that red is the colour you should be wearing this week.

Who would have thought we’d see someone in actual red knee-high boots in Lagos. But voila…
Strappy sandals and that sultry dress all in red is how you should show up at your date night this week. Just don’t leave your red purse behind…
And yes, red works for work too!


We couldn’t help but notice the eyewear as seen on Ozinna. It’s super sunny in Lagos anyway so why not go for it
Your tenue du jour will thank you for these sunglasses


We like to think of the ponytail trend as sneaky…but maybe that’s why we all can’t get over it.
Go extra-long or go home. Break every barrier with a ponytail longer than the conventional

Oversize jackets

It’s the biggest trend of 2017, after red. It has the potential to perfect your chic look while satisfying the laid-back craving
Red can’t stop creeping into every look so here you double trendy in red, oversize jacket

Berets and fanny packs

Difficult to ignore! The comfiest way to sneak yourself into every style blogger’s Instagram is to wear a beret and a fanny pack this week.
