Ebuka Obi-Uchendu is every designer’s dream muse; he’s got the height, the body, and the swag. Every piece of clothing appears to look good on him, hence his inclination for exploring many paths in the world of fashion.

Over the past nine years, Ebuka has made a name for himself as a thoroughbred fashionista, yet he fits no box and as such he swings from style to style. His style has been androgynous, traditional, casual, hip, dapper and sartorial.

Somehow, he manages to accentuate his masculinity while wearing the very bold colours once thought of as unmanly. Although he wears casual and formal outfits very well, his traditional look is perhaps the one that resonates the most with fans.

So, if you’ve been wondering how to grasp Ebuka’s sense of style, don’t fret, as we’ve cut through the fluff and compiled a list of great, actionable tips to becoming Ebuka:

Get a good hat/cap: This is of utmost importance, as no traditional outfit is complete without a matching or complimenting cap. You can invest in caps from all ethnicity, or wide (Fedora) hats because they all depends on the look you’re going for.

Footwear matters: The quote ‘Be well dressed, behave like a gentleman, and keep your shoes shined” is not just talking about clean shoes but stylish ones as well. Ebuka never fails in this category, from loafers to slides and mules, his shoe game is on point.

Trads are the key to everything: You can do anything with a traditional wear, the simpler the better. You can decide to go unconventional and have an entirely different silhouette. There are no limits to which you can reimagine them, be it either, the Agbada or simple tunics.
