In 2022, there have been plenty of fun fashion trends that people have hopped on. Nigerians have been slaying through the first half of the year from the spotlight-stealing pantsuits to the overflowing boubous. Here are our top 6 Nigerian fashion trends for 2022
You can’t go to any mall in Lagos and not spot one or two women wearing boubous; Yes! Most women definitely wore boubous during the first half and we are very sure this trend will last till the end of the year and probably forever because they are versatile, stylish and oh-so-comfy.

Gone are the days when pantsuits were termed “old school”. Today, fashion designers have made suit style a must-have in the wardrobe of every stylish woman out there by creating breathtaking styles with different fabrics that now make it suitable for all weather conditions. Nigerian women have definitely been slaying in pantsuits this year.

This beautifully patterned Kampala (Tie and Dye) from Abeokuta, the home of quality tie and dye in Nigeria has definitely been taking over. It suits all occasions and can be used to sew any trending style. It fits both men and women, is non-fading and long-lasting. We hope to see more of it this year.

We know animal prints aren’t exactly anything new, but this trend is timeless and ever-evolving. For 2022, we are trading in leopard and snakeskin, zebra prints and tiger prints for Ankara prints.
