BY GIFT GABRIEL
With embroidered kaftan now increasingly becoming a wardrobe staple, going African and staying casual at the same time has become amazingly easy and glamourous. At least you do not necessarily have to be decked in 4-piece Agbada or 3-piece Gbarie anymore to look African! Though the embroidered kaftan usually made with either Ankara, linen or brocade has been in fashion from time immemorial, the heavy touch of creativity which has in recent times been added to it has made it suitable for casual occasions, especially when worn atop a nice pair of jean or a complementing pair of trousers. This spiffy African casual particularly gives you an embellished look that makes you the centre of attraction at all times, and sets you apart in the crowd.
