SEPTEMBER(09): cITY CRAWLER Recommends 9 LOOKS TO TRY....

I think September is a great month, no particular reason, I just love the number 9. I wanted to call this post lucky number 9,give it a lil swing. But my friend reminded me that Luck is only associated with seven, (LUCKY NUMBER 7), oh well!. So as is City Crawlers usual way, this is our Style post recommendation for the month of september and beyond. We are mostly saying, be BOLD especially with the weather being so dreary and depressing a splash of colour will be sure to lift up any mood this month and STAND out out you will. 

9 LOOKS TO TRY 

Number 1: COLOR BLOCKING. 
This look has transcended summer and I’m sure will go on for a while. It’s not only for the bold as there are some more understated colours that can be thrown together to fit this trend. Be careful tho’ its not called color crashing. Take a cue from this lovely ladies. Chizo

Number 2: DRAMATIC NAILS 
You can get the new nail effect nail polish strip or just go multicolored with different cool colors. Some might say its tacky, but if you are bold enough why not, it looks like fun. 

Number 3: CORSAGE AND BROOCHES

Pinned on a Tee or a Top, these can dress up any casual look and make even formal attire look edgy. You can be creative and attach to your wrist or if you are into hats. 


Number 4: ANKARA TOP WITH JEANS

OMG the miracle creations I have seen done with this once frumpy fabric, I think Ankara should be voted Fabric of the New Generation. For a Semi casual look, everyone is pairing their Ankara top with jeans and it looks uber stylish. Love it.designer and stylist, Sandra Ushie


Number 5: HOT RED AND HOT PINK LIPSTICKS
This has always been a hot favorite, but a lot of ladies doubt they can pull it off. Find a shade that fits you and you will be sure you stand out. For this September, this is definitely one look I recommend you try. The effect it will have (wink). You can thank me later.
Number 6: BROGUES
This is my favourite. I was dying to own a pair and finally ive got the most gorgeous pair in Tan(which is also a hot favourite this season). Ladies might shy away because they look masculine, but if you are up for a style challenge, this is it. If you love Janelle Monae, well its her signature. Rock it baby, Rock it.
Number 7: ENVELOPE CLUTCH
This is one item that sure makes a statement. Its not understated in anyway but you don’t have to be Bold to carry this off. It comes is several different material, leather, crocodile skin etc. usually very structured and lovely lovely lovely. iRecommend.
Number 8: STATEMENT NECKLACE
With a statement necklace on even the plainest of dresses, shirts or tops, your look instantly takes a stylish dimension. The more bold and creative the piece, the more you stand out. Don’t be shy, you cant go wrong with this.
NUMBER 9: METALLICS, SHIMMER, GLITTER
Blouses, Tee-shirts, Dresses, Pants, Caps, shoes, Metallic and Shimmery Makeup own it this september.
