Iro and Buba: Modern Twist – StyleByToyoC x TokaToka

Hi,

A little bit of background here, Iro and Buba is the traditional attire attributed to the Yoruba culture in Nigeria. The Iro is the wrapper and the Buba is the top. As fashion is evolving, the younger generation have found new ways to keep the style modern but still keeping the traditional attire alive. TokaToka created a modern twist to the Iro and Buba while keeping it chic. I love the floral silk print material and how it flows on the body. The modern interpretation of the wrapper is gorgeous; wrap skirt with ruffles. I felt comfortable and chic wearing this outfit.

Travel Series: Scribbles & Graffiti – Collaboration with Toka Toka

Hi Guys,

How are you all doing? I have been enjoying my stay here in Baltimore, MD. The weather is so amazing here and had the chance to wear my playful chic print culotte set. TokaToka is a Nigerian brand and offers effortlessly chic pieces. I came across the brand in the new year and I knew I had to get a piece from the collection because it’s suited for my fun personality. As a fashion blogger, getting quality pictures is key so I had to find photographers in the Baltimore area and came across Marqel. Marqel has an amazing personality and made me feel comfortable during the shoot. I loved the slits on the culottes, that was what caught my attention. This brand ships worldwide and the pieces are affordable, you can check out their page below.
