Consider colours and patterns
You can go edgy or traditional depending on your style and the fashion statement you want to make. Hence, choose fabric colours and patterns that beautifully complement your complexion.
Carefully create your outfit
Your Adire fabric could be the top or the bottom or even what you rock from head to toe. You can also rock your lovely fabric with other ensembles. Just wear the fabric in whatever way works best for you. You can also combine the fabric with other plain fabrics to create something stunning.
Since there is already enough going on with the fabric, you do not need to over-accessorize your outfit. Instead use subtle jewellery like simple or hoop earrings, bracelets, single-layered necklaces and rings.
When it comes to footwear, your choice depends on the occasion. So, you can rock from sneakers to pumps with your beautiful Adire styles worth having in your wardrobe as a fashionista.
