The Place of Senator Style Native-Wear Suit in Nigerian Menswear Fashion
The senator style native-wear is versatile Nigerian menswear that looks good for all occasions (even weddings), but designs with a pocket square or pocket-trimmings look way better.
Gone are the days when the English-wears and suits were the almost-only options for our men to look corporate and appropriate for some types of occasions.
Thanks to our local fashion designers, our men now have an assortment of fashion options that are indigenous to our land – aside from the classic Agbada and Kaftan styles. Oh, and the latest Nigerian native attires for men look very good – so good that they represent at home and abroad.

Today, most Nigerian men proudly wear natives to the office, to weddings and every place. The Senator-style native menswear is one of such popular indigenous fashion for men. It’s a simple design, yet looks rich, especially if it’s well-tailored.
While a pocket-square (handkerchief) adds some spice to this type of men’s Nigerian native wear, other interesting design elements include adding contrasting coloured buttons to the top and/ or adding a cap to your look.
As I said, senator suit is a versatile style, in terms of where and how you can wear it. Available design options are also diverse and so you can choose how you want yours to be sewn – long sleeve senator suit style or short-sleeved, with or without pocket-handkerchief, long or short top senator style, round neck or high neck senator style, or even a buttoned-neck style.
Ideas to Elevate Your Look When Wearing a Senator Style Manswear
If you love wearing senator suits native-wear, try adding some special touch to yours to elevate your style. Have yours sewn in a sharp material (plain, striped or checkered), with a pocket-square, and accessorize with moccasins and sunglasses.
The pocket square is a tiny accessory but has a way to transform any menswear to looking polished.
If you want to further add sauce to your look, a senator suit plus a man-bag equal a match made in fashion haven. A man-bag is a great way to transform your senator-style attire to a professional/ corporate/ work look and still look dapper.
If you’ve been invited to a wedding or any occasion and looking for ideas to make a fashion statement, but also want an outfit that you can wear to other places without looking too dressed up and not looking inappropriate, just go for the senator style native-wear.
