Ibadan people are highly fashionable and have refused to take the back seat when it comes to trends that are in vogue. This is perhaps the reason why clothing items keep getting seemingly expensive in this our beautiful city. Starting from the beginning of the year, some fashion trends have arisen and evolved while those that were termed 'old school' have been remodeled to suit our modern taste. Below are some of the trending fashion items in Ibadan since the beginning of 2017 till now.

An Ibadan slay queen that doesn't have chokers, is that one a true slay queen? Chokers have come to stay and they have evolved from one line to two lines. New and more sophisticated designs keep coming out to suit the insatiable taste of Ibadan ladies. Chokers can be worn on any and everything. When you think your outfit is too simple, wear a choker and give it that sophisticated look you've been yearning for. However, desist from wearing it if you have breathing problem.

The off shoulder trend has been on since the beginning of the year and doesn't seem like it would be dying off any soon. From wearing off shoulder gowns, many tops have been made to off shoulders. Even classy wears now have the off shoulder touch. If there is no neck piece to go with the off shoulder, simply wear heels and it would give you that classy look you deserve.

In 2016, the finger ring virus was so deep in Ibadan that 6 out of 10 ladies would have a finger ring on. 3 out of the 6 ladies would have more than 2 finger rings on. Now, it is the nose ring trend in 2017. More and more girls keep making a hole in their nose to fit a ring and feature that seductive yet expensive look. Those who can't afford the pain of making a hole simply wear studs instead. Towards the end of 2016, nose rings started coming up - the cynthia morgan inspired nose ring whereby it crossed between your two nostrils. However, when men started running away from ladies wearing such and girls started getting goat-ey and cow-ey compliments, they resulted back to the old fashioned one nostril nose ring.

Since girls have realized that no matter how much they bleach, they can never be oyinbos. Why? Because of their eye color. The contact lens has come to the rescue of many ladies in Ibadan. From having fish eyes to cat eyes to snake eyes to goat eyes. Nowadays, its quite hard to identify a true mammy water from a fake one because they all look alike. Girls are ditching the recommended glasses for recommended contact lens.
