Easy Does It: Men’s Unofficial Fashion Guide

As traditional men, our wardrobes aren’t as diverse as women’s. If the dress code is official, you will most likely don a suit. Your look will be a little more relaxed if it is business casual. These two themes don’t leave much room for tweaking, so for men in the corporate world, our everyday look is
as predictable as our frequent board meetings. But you will not spend all your adult life within office walls; there is an apparent need to dress up without a dress code.

Here is a style guide to help you navigate ‘unofficial’ fashion

Traditional Mix & Match

With African print getting more recognition daily, there is no better time to incorporate elements
from the motherland in your relaxed looks. Amaechi Okobi, Bright ‘Basketmouth’ Okpocha and Daniel Etim Effiong show us how.

Leisure & Travels

It is travel season soon, and because the whole point of vacations is that you stay disconnected from work as much as you possibly can, it should reflect in your outfits, too, exactly how Tony Elumelu and Emmanuel Oyeleke portray it.
