AGBADA


Agbada is a long, flowing robe with wide sleeves worn by men is mostly found among the Yoruba of the South-western Nigeria. It is often decorated with embroidery. Agbada used to be a traditional outfit for a typical Yoruba man and it soon became an attire for all tribes. 
Growing up, the traditional attire known as agbada was mostly worn by "big men". At occassions in those days, you see men arriving the venue, flinging the the agbada around. I think it used to be called "1500", lol.
But gone are those days when this outfit was considered strictly for men as female trend setters and fashion lovers have been rocking this attire.

When SwagaAlhaji sent me this piece, I was sceptical cos I try to stay away from popular trends.
But I loved the way it looked when I tried it on. Again, I was super disappointed with the way the pictures turned out, hence the delay in posting it  (took this over a week ago). 


I paired it with black pants , black tank top instead of the traditional shirt its usually worn with, and a pair of white court shoes.
