Stop for a minute! Toke Makinwa’s US tour fashion is becoming our favourite thing to look out for

Toke Makinwa is on a tour of the United States promoting her book, On Becoming.

Is the book any of our business? We doubt this. Especially since Toke has successfully blinded us with an array of outfits that we can describe with only one word: amazeballs.

She’s been in Houston, New York, LA and while we strongly believe other basic people would have been lost in the crowd, Toke has managed to – or thinking about it again, it’s been effortless – pull off some looks that will go down in ‘Tok-story’ as the most supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (yeah, the point is to confuse you a little).

But before we continue in our praise of Toke Makinwa’s fabulous style, let’s never forget that we have someone to thank for all this fabulosity. It’s luxury stylist and personal shopper, Remi Fagbohun *applause for a job so well done*.

So Toke goes casual in a sweatsuit and she’s a killer (no guns, just fashion killa is what we mean) then she wears that fancy sequined mini-dress and she has her Instagram followers literally drooling.

Just look at the applique on that dressss!

And this yellow, easy breezy dress is from Just Cavalli and the gorgeous heels are from Italian luxury footwear brand, Kendall Miles.

Is there something about yellow we don’t know about? Is there? Whatever it is, it works for us. The shoes are Christian Louboutin, by the way.

Oh yeah, we said it. There’s definitely something about yellow. Peep the sneakers. The sunglasses are stunning, too. 

This look is definitely unlike Toke and we know Remi Fagbohun made her do this but we’re totally here for it. Street style (n)ever looked so good?

It’s Versace, baby.

The brazen Toke like you’ve never seen her before and we won’t pretend we don’t see the cleavage. Go woman, go!

Before y’all start to think we’re stalking Toke, we’ll leave you with this last photo. How can someone just chill at home in such a beautiful dress?

Sassy TM!

And she’s not even near done with this tour! Come home already, TM. The US may soon be on fire just because of you.
