Girl About Town


The summer months have beckoned, and all those holiday plans are becoming a reality. The heat of the Abuja sun urges you to take that flight to somewhere breezy, with a healthy dose of vitamin D. Your holiday packing is lagging behind schedule and you need to

hop to it!! Consider this your guide to nailing holiday style and becoming a global fashionista. Wherever you are jetting off to, you can’t go wrong with this comprehensive guide on how

to dress it up and keep it stylish whilst on your long-awaited; much needed time off.


Your duster coat

To fulfil the easy-going and outdoorsy vibe, duster coats come in very handy, especially when you wish to do the barest minimum in terms of dressing up. Duster coats are versatile and functional for your day-to-day dress ups and outings. And if it’s the only thing you throw on, you will have a winner too. Keep a selection of neural and vibrant duster coats, to amp up possibilities. Remember the kitten heels!!

One time, for the men’s style

Flaunt your feminine glamour in a sharp suit. Keep it edgy, keep it simple, be charismatic. Straight pants and a sharp blazer are an easy way to score this look. Your comfort levels remain, but your aura and energy flow along the gender spectrum, in a man’s suit. If you’re apprehensive to go masculine all the way, play up the feminine elements with lacy camisoles. A belt at the waist of that suit locates those curves that suits will usually keep out of sight.

Essential minimalism

Keep it effortless and comfortable on most of those days! We’ve all dreamt about that fabulous girl’s trip where, every single day, you and your posse slay to the nines, with servants to boot. This tip is for those days when your plan is not to slay, but to be comfortably stylish and enjoy the air of a different city. Bring on the khakis and crew neck tees, maxi’s and blouses, denim and denim maxis, with scarves to top off the understated fabulousness of minimalism; with some cute slippers/sandals/slip-ons to in addition.


Kitten heels to the rescue

Embrace the Parisienne of life!! High heels are beloved, but can be a drag after the first couple of hours, and let’s face it, you’re on holiday wanting to look chic and fabulous, but not with the stress from finding balance on cobblestoned streets.

Slide into some kitten heels to eliminate the towering disorientation that high heels bring. Kitten heels take the edge off, and turn up your cool vibe on those late afternoons and nights. Innately, kitten heels appeal to the frayed hem denims and oversized shirts, and tulle skirts and floral dresses. “How do you look so cute and so cool, all at once?”

Your natural locs…

Need a break too!!!! Give that ‘fro a nice time off from the wigs and weaves and braids. Treat those roots prior to your trip, and let those coils out to play in the breeze of a foreign land. Your afro-halo enhances your natural, easy-going, care-free, holiday glow.

Tzar sandals: How refreshing is it when the showpiece of your look comes in the shape and form of the darling ‘summer slides’ by Tzar studios.

Black tees and white tees: The motto is to keep it plain and simple. Giving you some leeway to amp up the cool with accessories
