You can start off with a bold coloured handbag, for example. When you are feeling more confident, opt for a statement skirt or a pair of bold coloured trousers.

Glam up your look with your lipstick selection

It is not all about the clothing you wear. You can transform a ‘boring’ suit with a vibrant shade of lipstick, such as a coral or a pillar-box red. Needless to say, you will need to master the art of applying your lipstick immaculately if you want to pull off this look. Nothing looks good about colour smudged across the corner of your lips.

Wear a pair of statement trousers

In addition to the suggestions that we have mentioned so far, another way to add some personality to your work wardrobe is to wear a pair of statement trousers. We often have a tendency to fall into the habit of only wearing black trousers in the workplace. However, this is your opportunity to add some colour to your outfit.

Style Icon: Davido

Our Style Icon this month is the one and only Davido aka David Adedeji Adeleke! For those who don’t know this talented young man, he is a Nigerian-American singer, songwriter, and record producer. He is currently one of the most influential artistes in Africa and he is well known all the world as well. I am a huge fan of his music. My favourites at the moment are Dami DuroGobe and Aye. I also loved Assurance. Davido performed that in the new Coming to America 2 movie on Amazon Prime. Have you seen it? I saw the movie last week and I really enjoyed it. I was very surprised but happy to see African artistes featuring in the movie. It is a good comedy and I highly recommend it if you are after a feel good movie to watch.

Style Icon: Davido

Back to our style icon for the month, Davido sense of style is quite captivating. I love seeing him on the red carpet, on the gram and when he is performing. His personal style is a bit rough around the edges but that is what makes it even more stylish. He is not trying to be anyone but himself and that comes off through his personal style. If I was asked to describe Davido’s personal style in three words, the words will be – casual, stylish and  modern. He loves the big brands and you can easily catch him wearing a top designer brands from head to toe, but not in a tacky way.

Davido is the king of accessories and he styles his pieces and accessories together perfectly! His brand and his style go well together. The outfits you see on our style icon may be too much for a 9 to 5 kind of guy but for a celebrity, it ticks all the boxes.
