Lupita Nyong’o is a Kenyan- Mexican actress and author who has been on best dressed lists and fashion magazine covers for the past decade. She is one of the best in her industry and I love when images pop up of her because I find her style to be truly original and refreshing. Whenever I see Lupita in photos I instantly think elegant, beautiful and classic with a modern twist. One of my favorite things about her is how she accessorizes her outfits and how well her clothing fits her. She exudes a commanding yet strong feminine energy that morphes perfectly with her fashion style.
A STATEMENT HAIR ACCESSORY
I first have to begin by saying that I just adore a statement hair accessory and have to admit that i can often overlook it when pulling my look together. I can confidently wear my straw Panama hat in the summer daily but for fall, I find it can be intimidating wearing a wool Fedora hat but Lupita makes it look so easy. She pulls the blue from her hat with ease coordinating to her blue hued outfit. I also love how she embraces her African roots. I love the beautiful head ties she wears on the red carpet or gele as it’s called in Nigeria. A artfully folded gele is part of everyday wear and de rigueur for special occasions like weddings or for Lupita, an awards show. Absolutely beautiful!
I really enjoyed shopping around for beautiful hair accessories and I’ve slowly started adding pieces along side my all ready growing hat collection. I plan to embrace a wool fedora, it’s just so elegant, and a paperboy cap, because fashion, duh! The two I loved especially were the navy blue wool Van Palma hat and the Isabel Marant paper boy cap.

THE SHEATH DRESS
A beautifully tailored dress is mandatory in any sophisticated woman’s closet. Coco Chanel said it best, “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman” and with Lupita, she is exactly that, memorable! Her red carpet style is always perfection and the dresses she wears emphasize her curves beautifully. Invest in your clothes and invest in a tailor you trust, take care of yourself and your items and dress to impress always. Just look how fabulous Lupita looks!
Take the time to build a collection of wonderfully fitted dresses to have on hand for occasions such as a bridal or business luncheon, a wedding or even a romantic date. A sheath dress is the perfect garment to enhance your feminine figure in an elegant way.

A PERFECT JUMPSUIT
What is not to love about a jumpsuit or a play suit even, it is one of the easiest things to wear, all you have to do is accessorize accordingly and go. A jumpsuit is a must when traveling also, pack a few and you’ve cut down on overpacking your suitcase.
My absolute favorite of the bunch is the emerald perfection by Pleats Please Issey Miyake. It’s so versatile, easy to wear during the day with a low heel or wedge and dress up at night with heels and statement jewelry. I actually love all the jumpsuits I found, a girl can’t just have one, ya know!
