As a child, I always thought that the agbada traditional attire was meant for BIG MEN. The impression was “agbada for the old” you’d always see them in occasions strutting their ego-filled walk and flipping the dress over their shoulder with their little purse under arm blessing people with money. Hardly did I see any young man who rocked this attire then.
Today the story has changed and the funny part of this story is not only that young guys rock the agbada these days, but the ladies also have been seen every now and then effortlessly pulling off this masculine acclaimed attire.
Most of these ladies have made it their calling to bring back to life the long dead “in your face” fashion statement that was the IT thing back in the sixties and seventies. A little touch of difference applied to this fashion item has also been seen as not so hurting as the agbada can now be worn over short sleeved buba, now comes in shorter lengths and widths and are also not as heavy as the old school type of agbada and is now paired with stilettos and gele to give it a more feminine look.
Pictures of ladies slaying the attire real hard after the cut will make you run to your tailor with a brocade material….
I’m so in love with this attire right now ??
Ladies, would you rock this??? Let’s know what you think.
