ASO EBI has come to stay. It has been fashionable for decades and from one generation to the other. It’s obvious that it won’t leave the Nigerian scene any time soon. You can’t just get enough of it.
Aso ebi is usually made with anakara and lace fabrics. The good thing about it is that you can never run out of styles as there is always a new design creating a lot of buzz at Nigerian parties. It’s popular throughout Nigeria and it’s always an expression of solidarity with a celebrant.
There’s something unique about aso ebi that the average Nigerian woman can’t get enough of. Wedding guests are the biggest protagonists because they all want to turn heads with their various designs. Thank God there are stunning designs to always choose from and there are awesome colourful trends out there too.
The aso ebi is usually matched with the layered gele, glittering makeup and colourful accessories. The trendy colours are teal, blue , green, peach, royal blue, orange, coffee brown, white and coral. Below are gorgeous aso ebi styles to rock to your next owanbe. You should probably show your tailor one of these styles so you can strut in one to your owambe next weekend.
The hottest styles you can pilfer from now include:
Cape inspired style
Cape is the in-thing now and the cape-inspired aso ebi trend is a new way of looking all glammed-up. It’s either you do the transparent cape or the purely cape dress. You rock it and show everyone you’ve got the swag.
Now you can blend your lace with ankara. It’s no longer just satin but now lace fabric and most especially cord lace is a creative way to bring your styles to life.
Glittering stones, brooches, and beads
To spice up your look, you can have a fusion of stones and beads into your fabric. It’s so classy doing it. However, make sure it’s done properly, so it won’t be too clumsy or cheap.
The off-shoulder trend is hot now and it’s the sweetheart of many fashionable chics and weave-on designers. However, one factor to be considered when choosing the off-shoulder style is having a fairly robust neckline revealing little or no shoulder bones. The good thing about this is that you can decide to wear a necklace or not and you’ll still look good.
Peplum has been in for a while and it’s still hot in the aso ebi fashion scene. It’s a good way to cover-up you bulging stomach and very stylish too.
