Over the last two months, Chimamanda Adichie has been on the road publicizing her new book Dear Ijeawele. She’s spoken at Johns Hopkins University, the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, the Women in the World Summit, George Town University and a host of international venues. Earlier this week she appeared on CNN as a guest on the Christian Amanpour Show.

Of course, the most important part of these talks and appearances are the smart things Adichie says about feminism, but her fashion game has been on such a high level that we’ve decided it is also worth highlighting.

Her tour wardrobe features a lot of bold styles: exaggerated sleeves, culottes, bomber jackets, shirt dresses, see-through sleeves, polka dots, prints, capes, and much more.

She keeps her makeup pretty lowkey but goes dramatic on the natural hair updos, creating the perfect balance for a classic look.

Adichie’s generally goes for an edgy take on classic things. For example, her shoes are classic pumps with pointed toes and pencil-straight heels, but she keeps things edgy by opting for bright colors and print designs.

By the way, we are not the only ones taking note of Adichie’s tour fashion. Last week, Nigerian lifestyle blog Bellanaija.com dedicated a post to her hair style. Nigerian designer, Grey Project, also gave Adichie a shout out on Instagram for wearing one of her pieces.

We’ve put together some of our favorites of her looks.
