Chibundu Onuzo recently announced the forthcoming release of her new book. It’s titled Welcome to Lagos. The cover is gorgeous. We even shared it here last week. [click here if you missed it.]

All that is great news, but that’s not what we want to talk about this Friday afternoon. How about the fact that the London based author has been giving us major fashion envy since she set up shop on Instagram?

Her Instagram page is essentially a run way. From heels to flats, from gele to blazers, from cascading weaves to afro puffs, she slays effortlessly on what feels like a daily basis.

We love all her bold and colorful style choices as well as the wide variety of cool Ankara accessories that make up her closet.

Which look is your favorite? Share with us!

I hold a doctorate in English from Duke University and recently joined the Marquette University English faculty as an Assistant Professor. I love teaching African fiction and contemporary British novels. Brittle Paper is the virtual space/station where I play and experiment with ideas on how to reinvent African fiction and literary culture.
