Want a primer on classic-but-current men pairing styles? Look no further than the dapper men at the just concluded AMVCA’s. From Alex Ekubo’s perfect blue and white ensemble to IK Ogbonna’s Magician inspired look. Then see Mai Atafo’s solid collar and neckwear combo which proves that reworking your basics can be anything but boring. Why not follow Uti Nwachukw’s lead and if you do decide to wear an Ankara blue suit ensemble pairing with a red tie and pocket square then you are red carpet ready.
Did you notice Bez’s praise worthy outfit? This is nothing short of perfect, or switch to Ebuka-Obi Uchendu or Chidi Mokemes’s white suits and you have arrived at your style destination. Moreover, you can give that casual gentle man look from Flavor and Sexy steel a try, then you would know if the girls would be thrilled.
Better still catch your vibe with the Africanese of Ramsey Nouah, Melvin Oduah, Osita Iheme Majid Michel or Chief Dele Momodu and you are sure of some African steam.
If however you decide to go neutral like Noble Igwe or colorful like Mike Ezuronye and Ifeanyi Dike Jr., then you have swag going. Overall keeping it classic may just be your best bet like Kalu Ikeagwu, or Dimeji Alara, with the black shade.
Whatever style you opt for, getting the most out of the menswear you’ve invested in is advantageous once you remember to be you, yet stylish. This is a style move we’re always on board with at Madame Solange.
There you have it see pictures below for style inspiration. Who is your favorite?
