So, if you’re in the mood to ‘pepper dem’ with your Gele style, I’ve got 6 fresh new Gele styles you should try with your next occasion or aso-ebi outfit.

Learn How to Tie this Gele Style on Your Own

How cool are those fashionistas (above) in this new, trending gele style? We just love how the gele fans out to one side, and the twisted part stays put on one side.  To get their look, learn how to tie the latest twisted fan gele style by yourself here (video tutorials).


Dress Up & Slay with the New Gele Style with Side-Twist and Side-Fan

Now that you have 6 new styles to play with, say bye-bye to old styles of tying gele, and sing along with Teniola’s ‘my Gele must pass your own’ song (‘video below – you may want to pause video when the ad starts at 1 min 29 seconds).  You must show them you have arrived – with these new  side-twisted fan gele styles with pleats. Your gele must fine pass their own.

It’s not every time you want to wear a common-style outfit to an occasion or wedding party, especially if many important personalities are on the invite-list.  You know how easy it is to get lost in the sea of sameness wearing the same aso-ebi or aso-oke fabric (as everyone) at a wedding or other types of occasion.  While sewing a special style for your aso-ebi can help you look different, tying a different and unpopular style of gele is another way.

Who wants to go to a party looking like everyone, with same ol’ Gele style? That’s boring.  That’s why we’re starting to bring you a series of hot, fresh and trending new gele scarf styles spotted on celebs and fashion-savvy Nigerian women at society weddings.
