From the runways to the owambe parties, the revolutionizedIro and Buba is always a delightful sight. The traditional Iro and Buba is no longer regarded as a style reserved for the older folks. It is currently a trendy red carpet look in Nigeria.
Young ladies rock this style in silk, chiffon and velvet materials. The way the Iro and Buba is worn has been modernized. No longer is it wound around the waist in a boring style. Iro is now worn as a tulip style wrap, tied in front or at the back.
Here’s how to create the look:
Hold both ends of the Iro (wrapper) in each hand, Move the ends to opposing sides such that they are made to overlap each other, do a twist from one end to the other,
repeat the twist and then, tie in a knot at the back,tuck in loose ends.
So, rock your Iro and buba and be the trendiest chic on the block! Have fun tweaking your buba into fabulous styles – V-neck, round neck, short sleeves, sleeveless… the list is endless!
