- One of the most beloved Nigerian styles is the mermaid cut. The dress sticks to the body like the second skin, accentuating every curve. Closer to the knees, the skirt begins to widen and folds up to the floor in luscious waves. This is a very ladylike style that matches practically everybody. Such dresses are often paired with head ties in the same style
In this case, the richly decorated body part of the dress is attached to a wide and voluminous bottom that’s made out of uncountable layers of embroidered chiffon. It makes the dress less heavy and adds some incredible feminine softness. Together with a golden gele and matching jewelry, the dress looks blindingly perfect.
- Another masterpiece in gold is of a similar shape but it sports a very fresh and elegant combination of colors that make it somewhat brighter. The top part seems quite coarse due to the plenty of golden embroidery but the soft bottom frills give the dress a soft cloudy look
This is a choice for those who are not afraid of exposing their shoulders and a part of their arms. The dress is splendid: any woman in it will look like a statuette carved in ivory and decorated with gold. The combination of colors and textures is a real finding
- Who said the golden dress should be golden all over? Here’s a proof that a lovely golden dress can come in different forms. The pure golden corsage of this dress is shiny like true gold. The sharp gleam is slightly muted here with the help of the thinnest and finest white chiffon ever. The embroidered whiteness covers the gold, adding some softness and tenderness to it
In this dress, the bottom of the skirt is made out of tulle of a golden color, which adds brightness to the pale upper part. The pale gold head tie, white accessories and decorations complete the look. The trail behind is an optional feature – even without it, the dress would look impressive enough.
- One more golden work of art consists of an almost transparent top part made out of golden lace and mesh, and the skirt is all shiny golden satin. The same mermaid-like fashion is recreated here, however, the skirt is not puffed. The shiny folds of the skirt create an illusion of the fused gold
This dress is for the bravest ones. The transparent top exposes a lot of skin and body and you need to be ready for this. The skirt is very fine and is also able to give accents to every line of your body. However, if you decide to wear such a dress on your wedding day, you can be sure: all the heads will be turned to you all the time.
