Buba and Wrapper - Nigerian Fashion

Buba and Wrapper - Nigerian Fashion

IMG_0026 The name of the outfit I have on is called a buba and wrapper. The buba (pronounced "boo-bah") is the blouse I have on, and the wrapper is wrapped around the blouse. This outfit it is widely worn in West Africa, and my mom particular brought it from Nigeria. :)

Growing up, I always thought this was more of an archaic trend, probably because the only people around me I saw wear it were my mom and aunts. However, it's back in style and we young folks are definitely rocking it lol! I particularly love the print on the one I have on, you can see other patterns here.
