Finally harmattan is here and I’m having very mixed feelings about it simply because it’s cold enough to layer my clothes as much as I want but the cold dusty weather is making my throat itch and also making it hard for me to get anything done as all I want to do is stay in bed. Anyway on a brighter note, in today’s post I’d be sharing my tips on how to look stylish and cute this harmattan season.

What I’m Wearing :Top and skirt : Jumia Fashion| Shoe : Online store | Shades : RoadsideVendor | Purse : Thrifted.
1. Choose thin layers over thick layers : This is because as cold as it might seem, the weather these days really just knows how to switch up on us and it might just get really hot unexpectedly and you wouldn’t want to have sweat patches everywhere or having sweat dragging your foundation down. I’d rather suggest you wear clothes just enough to keep you warm and you can easily take off when it gets hot whilst still being fully clothed. If you must wear thick clothes let there be room for air like this off shoulder knit top.
2. Consider how active you’d be : This look is for a date night and it’s just perfect especially with a gorgeous scarf to cover your legs if it starts to get cold. If you’re going to work or school where you’d be seated in one place for hours then it’s advisable you add more layers like wearing the knit top over a white shirt and opting for court shoes that cover your toes.

3. Accessorize with shades : Yes I know you might be wondering why I’m asking you to wear shades when it’s not sunny, well it’s simply because it’s really dusty at this time of the year and you wouldn’t want to have your eyes catching dust particles leaving your mascara smeared all over your face as a result from rubbing your eyes will you?

And now to the GIVEAWAY!!!!
