Look like a star & keep your style


It is often said that celebrity is the chastisement of merit and the punishment of talent. You don’t need to be a model with a killer body to look good. Anyone can look his or her best with a little effort. You can achieve star quality style without breaking the bank. The key to looking like a celebrity isn’t found in a bunch of designer labels, but in knowing how to highlight your face and body in flattering, effective ways. If you can afford the designers, by all means go for them.

Have you ever wondered how Uti, Genevieve, Mecry Aigbe and Jim Iyke look ridiculously good even when running small errands like getting groceries? It’s not by accident. Celebrities carefully craft their style and appearance to maintain their public image at nearly all times. If you’re enamored with the glamorous world of Hollywood celebrities, look no further – you can dress like a celebrity too!

Want to experience the glamour of the Red Carpet and have admirers flock around you like the paparazzi? Here are a few tips to help you slay all day, everyday.

Go shopping! Try buying more single pieces at Jumia, not full outfits. Nobody gto trendy by just admiring fashion-forward people. A jacket, a tank top, a turtleneck, low-cut pants. It’s better to mix up your wardrobe than buy complete sets of outfits. Shop at inexpensive stores to get cheap, yet chic clothes. Jumia’s vintage store would be a good idea to find something big and trendy.

Get your own, fancy pair of sunglasses! Go glitzy! Get some with studs or diamonds. Sometimes its cool to wear aviators. Big white or black ones for the Mary-Kate Olsen look. Getting sunglasses means wearing them wherever you go. That includes the supermarket too. You’ve seen Solange Knowles strolling down the grocery store with her mega chic black sunglasses even if it wasn’t so sunny, so why can’t you do it?

Wear big accessories. Always remember the word ‘big’. Think big bangles, big handbags, big earrings. Hoops work for anyone, and so do bulky handbags. With a handbag, zipped up jacket, jeans and sunglasses, you’ve already got the ‘Watch-out-I-am-a-celebrity’ look.

Be a scarf girl for a day. Wear scarves hanging around the front of your neck, or at the back, or tie one around your waist. To keep your look flowing, get a scarf.

Shoes, shoes, shoes! Gladiators are definite a step forward. Wearing flats or sandals is cute too, but for the superstar look you should really buy a cute pair of knee high boots. Add a heel for a dressy look or keep them flat and comfy for that OMG look that a lot of celebrities love. Work your style!

Less is more. If you are thinking about buying that sequined shirt but only have enough money for a plain v-neck, go with the basics. Add a longer necklace if you want a more glitzy look. An outfit many celebrities are seen shopping or on the streets in is a plain shirt, a scarf, some jeans, and some boots. Sometimes they add shades or a  jacket for added glamour.

Remember, you don’t always have to look fabulous. Some celebrities go to the supermarket wearing low-rise thread pants, a jacket and sunglasses.

Keep your outfits flowing to the next level. Step up to the big level, meaning keep your outfits hitting the next edge. You don’t have to stay up with everyone’s style, keep your own style! Be yourself!

Whether you are thinking of doing a F5 on your wardrobe or adding a little icing on the cake, Jumia celebrity store is just what you are looking for.
