This look first appeared in an Instagram post. See below.
Since then, I have been looking for a way to photograph myself in this open-back shirt for a blog post. Last year at the Memkoh Meetup in Lagos, I wore an open back top but since I was in Nigeria, aka under the hawk-like eyes of my Nigerian parents, I had to wear a coat to cover it. haha. But this top is different. It’s a full shirt in front and has tie-strings at the back. And it’s in blue and white stripes. Beautiful! You can style it like I did above, with a pair of darker jeans or you can totally blend it with light-wash jeans like I did below. It’s up to you.
6 Days of Spring Day 3
In this look, we addressed Trends 1 & 3 – open back tops and mules – from our Spring Trends you’ll soon see everywhere post. I hope you read it. I also fell in love with these fishnet tights I saw last year. I figured they would look good with the Inidara Denkara jeans so I bought them and now we have a completely interesting look for Spring. Use MEMKOH for 10% off on Inidara.
What happens when you hear Nigerian music? Take a peek above.
