Life for me is a journey of discovery. When it comes to style, I regard it as a sum total of our personality.
“If you’ve got a mind, then you’ve got a style.” Eromz. O
My post on Alariwo a while ago http://www.alariwo.org/my-style/, asks you real questions about your style in a bid to help you discover who you are. My personal style is simple; I control what influences my style which meansI am not blindly following trends but instead I follow what inspires me, what i’m comfortable with and what suits my personality.
This post is meant for individuals who are longing to belong in other words those who strive to look like celebrities, because you don’t have to anymore and most importantly for those interested in personal style.
This is the season of personal style “do your thing”; “thereare no rules”. Permit me to share some points below; that I feel will help usachieve that great style.
· Figure out what inspires you, for example art,fabrics, culture, history etc.
· Make a list of clothing items in your wardrobethat make you feel good about yourself.
· Combine trends from the past, present andfuture. This helps to show your innovative and creative skills.
· Buy items that suits you (i.e. size and shape)and what you are comfortable wearing not what seems to be in trend.
· Choose the right accessories that give youconfidence and a smile for e.g. shoes, bags, bracelets, sunglasses etc.
· Style is not perfect, leave room for errors lol.
I hope these few points help most of us and if you have anyadditions please add your comments. Let me also point out that a Great Style isn’t achieved overnight; it’s a journey of discovery.
Below are style tipsfrom Style Icons;
· Ralph Lauren: “Breaking rules iswhat makes clothes interesting. I love mixing fabrics and shapes in unexpectedways - classic with modern, rugged with elegant.”
· Giorgio Armani: “Elegance is theresult of a natural equilibrium between simplicity, looking after oneself andintelligence. All this generates the attitude we call elegance. It is a qualitywhich, contrary to popular belief, does not require deep pockets.”
Please share your views about the post and how you intend to combine trends from the past, present and future.

Horror movie posters from Ghana
QUACKS is a hilariously accurate short comedic socio-political satire film by Nigerian filmmaker Abba Makama that revolves around “an elite group of pseudo intellectual leftists” that have convened for an emergency meeting to address the ineffective protests of the “have-nots” of a fictional state called ‘The Repulic’, that aims to “overthrow the existing regime ran by a cabal of self-centered materialists?”.
Will they succeed?
The film touches on the disconnect between the out of touch young elite of the society, and those whose everyday lives and realities that they are estranged from.
