fashion-to-go/event: made magazine party

hello again! we've been on blogging overdrive, haven't we? well, here we go again! here are some photos from the recent made magazine party in lagos, nigeria + our trend report:

the go-to look for for men remains a blazer/tailored suit jacket, contrasting shirt, jeans (with a slight flare in some cases) and pointy-toed shoes:




as for these gentlemen:



the focus is still on their slightly flared pants and pointy-toed shoes but the first gentleman opts for a vest/waistcoat instead of a blazer and the second gentleman loses the extra layers and leaves his shirt tucked out.

our least favorites?



our favorite?



***********

as for the ladies, we noticed lots and lots of dresses, denim, and lots and lots of belts...

*dresses with pink and blue tones:





* a few metallics and gold embellishments/embroidery:




*the LBD was well-represented:





*lots of denim (skinny for some) and a variety of tops:




* the staple waist belt:




notice the prevalence of clutch purses as well?
