These are highly fashionable and can be paired with anything. They can be paired with skirts, corporate pants, and casual chinos. They are also cool on the skin and will not cause discomfort.

Also the exposed feet will be prone to cracking. Wear covered shoes like ballet flats, boots and moccasin.
Denim is thick and warm and is appropriate for the chilly mornings. Pair this with shirts and covered shoes. You can throw in sweat shirt if the top you paired it with is light and cool on the skin.

This accessory is necessary for the harmattan season because of its fluctuating nature. It is chilly in the morning and sometimes gets hot and dry in the afternoon. A scarf can be worn around the neck in the morning and then ditched when the weather gets hot later in the day.
