Igbo Brides To-be Should copy these Traditional styles by BBN Maria, Queeneth, and Other ladies.

The Igbos live in the Eastern part of Nigeria. They are people with rich cultural heritage and traditions. The traditional attires, language, ambitious spirit, and food are few things you should know about the Igbo person.

The purpose of this article is to share some amazing Igbo traditional styles by the Ex-BBNaija housemate Maria, Nollywood actress Queeneth Hilbert and other ladies who have rocked amazing styles.

The Igbo traditional attire for ladies include blouses, wrapper, dresses, and head ties. They are usually made from fabrics such as George, damask, lace, silk, and Isiagu but the most common ones are George and Isiagu.

When Igbo ladies especially the brides stepped out in these attires, they always looked gorgeous, elegant, and attractive.

Another important aspect of their costume is the accessories. Their accessories include orange coral beads worn on the neck which are usually large and prominent to complement the ensemble. On the wrist, they wear ivory wrist bands, bracelets, bangles, silver or gold chains.

Other accessories include the handbag which should be small and match the outfit the person is wearing. The head ties are usually a George scarf or cap made from coral beads.

You can also see some of them carrying leather hand fans or what they call "odu inyinya". The heels should be low to allow the lady to dance without any inconveniences.

Let's take a look at the five styles below:

1. Maria Chike Benjamin representing her culture through her attire.
