I was asked to work for the Screen Nation Awards as a general stylist this year, precisely last Sunday. Styling the screen nation awards duties were to overview everything from hairstyling to the makeup of the models.Plus their fashion styling. Using Nzingha accessories, Massassbi skirts, and Angela corsets designs.

So first for work, I was dressed very casually.Then for the show, I changed into an ensemble of matching silk prints top and skirt I scored from MinkPink and the Jimmy Choo I have literary been killing lately and loaded the outfit in accessories (as usual).

**So feel free to click below and shop the look or similar.

What I have noticed so far in my styling journey is; every time I thought I scored a big gig, an even bigger opportunity came along. I am simply getting used to one challenging task after another and learning along.It also shows me how much perseverance having the right attitude is really the key.And as much as I love and value what I do.Being recognised is always encouraging.

When attending an important meeting, it is essential to look our best. Whether it’s in a creative industry or corporate world and as Tom Ford once said: “Dressing well is a form of good manner”.

I had a meeting in Canary Wharf which is probably one of the most corporate places in London. And as a creative, it’s important to let my personality shine through everything.

I wore this Leopard prints top and red bottom which is a combination that never fails. As the blouse was sleeveless, a navy fitted blazer was added to smarten the look for a more work-appropriate style.This outfit could also be worn for a day out or an evening event.

What I will suggest if you aren’t confident enough to pull red trousers is to wear a burgundy pencil skirt or trousers. which is a mellow down but still a colour touch. To conclude, the accessories are optional, a black clutch or even no scarf at all will still keep the dynamic of the outfit.

So,I would like to know how confident you will feel about rocking red trousers for your next outing.Share!!
