The most emotionally charged arguments of all time...

Apple vs Samsung

Nicki vs Cardi 

Nigerian Jellof vs Ghana Jellof (Is this a rhetorical question?)

Pomo vs Shaki (Meat delicacies) 

Now, we have possibly the most anticipated boxing match of our generation

SEQUIN VS METALLIC

These two fabrics have the ability to turn an ordinary outfit into something fit to party with the queen in but lets look at it more deeply. Since we agree they have a similar degree of power to elevate your outfit, why would you chose one over another (photo below is me in deep thought on the matter lol)

Durability: A sequin dress might not survive a year or 2 in a suitcase, you are guaranteed to have missing pieces even if left untouched. Metallic on the other hand will stay put.

Value for money: I haven't seen a significant difference in the price of both these fabrics but missing sequins will mean you need to discard of the outfit. This makes the sequin outfit not great value for money if only worn a few times.

Day time use: I usually avoid outfits that can only be worn in the day or at night. I prefer to get pieces I can wear as often as possible regardless of the time of day. Wearing sequin in the day might be seen as weird or over the top (I would do it) but metallic on the other hand is always a good choice and transitions easily from day to night.

So I guess it is no surprise that I picked METALLIC as the winner of this epic fight but I am rocking a sequin skirt here which I love. I only have a few sequin outfits.

Before I tell you more about my favourite pieces for the season -let me introduce you to my childhood friend and photographer of all photos above Mamie Eze of DstudioInc photography, she was such a pleasure to work with.

Did you guess it yet?... The white blazer.

Dress it up with all black errthang or dress it down with jeans, it is a must have item in your wardrobe.

Ways to dress up your White blazer

Wear it as a dress

Wear it with a sequin skirt

Wear it as a low cut top

Wear it with all black

 

For more semi casual looks like brunching with the girls or a casual business meeting, my favourite ways to wear the white blazer are

With light coloured denim (for a more casual look)

Or dark coloured denim for a business meeting

Or in the summer, shorts and cowboy boots will slay any white blazer

I have several white blazers, an unstructured one which serves me well with both casual and more dressy outings. Below I was on holiday and on my way to dinner, light enough not to boil but enough to keep me warm in an air conditioned restaurant

I also have a Tuxedo-like white blazer which honestly is my most used, it dresses up the modest jeans and t-shirt outfit very well. The tuxedo blazer can go from casual to dressy in one swipe. Check out my wedding guest outfit below

Finally my structured white blazer which I use quite often always makes a statement. It tells people that you have style and you are not afraid to show it.

Monochrome has been something I frequently wear recently, with the outfit below, I wanted it bold with shapes and textures. The white hat finished the outfit nicely.
