How to Rock Agbada, Tux as a Woman: 18 Fashionistas Jump on Edgy Style Trend

It is a known fact that Nigerian ladies love a man who can pull off a sleek traditional look effortlessly - be it kaftan, 'senator' or agbada.

The likes of Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, BBNaija Prince and Neo, Noble Igwe among other Nigerian celebrity fashionistas have set the bar high when it comes to traditional menswear.

However, the saying 'what a man can do, a woman can do better' seems to apply in today's fashion world as more women are ditching the conventional 'feminine look' for edgy, daring and bold styles.

While groomsmen are ordinarily supposed to consist of just men, this is no longer the case as more women are stepping up for this role and doing it in stylish looks.

Just recently, fashion blogger, Ms Asoebi, made a compilation of nine ladies rocking agbada style in impressive ways and we cannot help but fall in love with them!

Well, this is certainly not the case with fashion designer, Olubunmi Ojo-Adenugba.

Like the popular saying goes, what a man can do, a woman can do better. And this is certainly reflected in how impressive Adenugba replications of Ebuka's looks have been.
