Nigerian designer, Lisa Folawiyo just knows how to play with style, hence her Instagram feed is more than just full of perfect pictures of her personal fashion items – it’s food for the stylish soul.
And stalking her harder as we approach part season, for clues on how to get clad in a way that screams “celebration,” Team SPICE have found 5 times Ms Folawiyo wore Autumn/Winter’s favourite, festive finish: metallic, and the best way to steal her style a la the highstreet. You’re welcome.READ MORE: SEE THE STARS AT SPICE’S ‘TOAST TO THE TASTEMAKERS’ PARTY!
The high-waisted denim, the Miu Miu frilled top, the cute and clustered box clutch… All very cute – but those gold, criss-cross mules? They made us shoe-lovers smile.
Here are a few to follow the Mother with – and the price will have you gleaming as much as the shoes;
Gold Mules, £16 (sale) here
Silver Cross-Front Mules, £20 (sale) here
Frilled Collar Shirt, £19 (sale) here
Jet-setter and trend-setter, Lisa was spied at the shops earlier this year in a pair of gorgeous, golden Chanel brogue-sandals. And us? We just wept at the sight of them.

With this simple outfit picture, Ms Folawiyo used her camera’s flash to reveal the level of greatness in her culottes. No, they’re not just white – they’re quilted white culottes with a metallic gold finish. Yaassssss…
Slaying as always, this rather relaxed, luxe look is suddenly elevated once we know there’s gold detail involved, and we are at once clamouring to find similar items. Here you go;
Metallic Spot Culottes, £20 (sale) here
Golden Silky Culottes, £28 here
Colour-Blocked Jumper, £35 here
Striking gold with her silver pleated skirt, the designer let off some steam on a weekend day out, but still managed to slay in her most relaxed look yet.
First off, there were flats (she does don them occasionally) and there was also the addition of a loose-fit, printed shirt, thrown on for pure holiday vibes. But it was all taken to slay-levels with the metallic skirt, and here’s one you can buy to mix things up in your wardrobe;
Silver Pleated Skirt, £22 (sale) here
Printed Shirt, £38 here
So it seems Lisa knew she was onto a old thing with that first skirt, as she went out and copped the same one in gold. And thank God she did, because wow does she look good in it.
This outfit is one of our favourites and so captures her playful side, with plenty of fashion stuff (textures and colour) going on here. Hence we’ll be trying this at home with these pieces;
Gold Pleated Skirt, £68 here
Metallic Snake Print Skirt, £79 here
Colourful Fur Scarf, £22 (sale) here
Did you enjoy your lesson in wearing the texture for party season? So did we, and while we can’t promise all the above items will be in stock by time you get to them (hurry!), we will be checking back on Lisa Folawiyo and other stars’ wardrobe for more ideas for the end of year parties.
