Gele Styles, Names And How To Wear Them

Apart from make-up, tying your gele is another problem so many women face. You might not call it a problem but not everyone wants to just tie a gele like someone going for a prayer meeting – you really have to do it well.

Let’s do this.

Who must have seen the auto-gele somewhere, somehow. It has the prefix ‘auto’ because the idea is to do it once and make it permanent. So, you do not have to go through the stress over and over again. It is perfect for cultural dresses.

For women who might not want to wear an Ankara or a laced dress, the rose gele is just the right thing to wear. It fits in quite naturally.
The flowery umbrella gele is a multi-friendly kind. You could wear it either with your cultural dress or your print dress. However, the dress must have
designed quite well. You don’t want your head gear outshining your dress.

For free-styling, the two-toned butterfly gele is just the right thing to wear. It kind of reminds you of the foju soko gele. Don’t wear this unless you are wearing a cultural dress please.
