These Gorgeous Photos Prove That Lagos Street Style Is The Best

Lagosians just do it better.

1. Lagos — the commercial capital of Nigeria — is the largest city in Africa. It is also one of the fastest growing cities in the world.

And among the teeming millions that make it a hub of excitement and innovation are some seriously stylish people.

3. For the last five months, one anonymous blogger has been photographing the city’s most striking people on the streets and posting the pictures — plus commentary — on Lagos Street Style.

4. The photographer, who recently moved to Nigeria from Scotland, is a lawyer in the oil and gas sector.

“I have a keen interest in style, street photography, writing, and people-watching,” she says. “The best way to combine all these loves was the blog.”
