There are many stylish beauties who wouldn’t look or give thought to wearing the traditional Yoruba Iro and Buba. They’d wear it either because it is their traditional ceremony or they’ve gained a lot of weight after three kids and cannot afford to let the ‘mommy flab’ show.
Well, if you’re not in these categories, I’ve got good news for you! You can look hot, stylish and sexy in TOTE’s Iro and Buba collection. The fashion brand headed by Bola Obileye has updated this age long ensemble which has been part of our tradition. Move over, grandma and friends!
Wear a TOTE piece to jazz up your personal style! The best part is that the Buba can be worn on it’s own, especially our favourite one in the last picture which can be worn with high waist pants or jeans, and can be completed with a vintage belt to add structure to the look.
