5 clothing pieces that don't make sense to wear in Nigeria

The Nigerian weather is very specific, so that makes men's style very specific also. Thus, here are five clothing pieces that just don’t make sense to wear in Nigerian weather.

Bling Bling is not okay in Nigeria weather

We Nigerians like to do ‘I belong’ sometimes but the truth is we are too unique to be doing all that. Our weather is hot all year round and that’s why certain clothing pieces are just not acceptable here:

Leather jackets:

I think in this case, we have been fooled by too many Hollywood movies. Leather jackets are super hot and if you have walked outside lately, you know it is suicide to wear leather jackets in Nigeria.

Leather pants:

Again, I blame the likes of American singers like the late Michael Jackson, Kanye West and Miguel for this silly Nigerian trend. It is hard enough wearing pants in Nigeria sometimes and then you want to go full leather? No way.

Bling bling:

If you are not Rick Ross shooting a  music video for a song titled, ‘Bling Bling’, you have no business wearing huge gold or silver or bronze chains stacked around your neck.

Earrings:

Leave the 90s and early 2000s alone. We are past emulating our favorite European stars. It’s time to be mature and besides the Nigerian culture doesn’t support the trend.

Beanie hats:

I think this was funny when ‘Osuofia in London’ came out but not anymore. Thick hats such as Beanies restrict air from flowing to your head and that’s why it is best for the winter season, when you really want to restrict too much wind, not hot and sunny Nigeria.
