WHY CAN'T A SMART WOMAN LOVE FASHION? CHIMAMANDA NGOZI ADICHIE TALKS ABOUT HER STYLE


Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie wrote about how her style has evolved, to a greater appreciation for fashion, in this month's issue of ELLE.

"Once, I brought a pair of high heels to a literary event but left them in my suitcase and wore flats instead. An old friend said, 'Wear what you want to; it’s your work that matters.' But he was a man, and I thought that was easy for him to say. Intellectually, I agreed with him. I would have said the same thing to someone else. But it took years before I truly began to believe this.

I am now 36 years old. During my most recent book tour, I wore, for the first time, clothes that made me happy. My favorite outfit was a pair of ankara-print shorts, a damask top, and yellow high-heel shoes. Perhaps it is the confidence that comes with being older. Perhaps it is the good fortune of being published and read seriously, but I no longer pretend not to care about clothes. Because I do care. I love embroidery and texture. I love lace and full skirts and cinched waists. I love black, and I love color. I love heels, and I love flats. I love exquisite detailing. I love shorts and long maxidresses and feminine jackets with puffy sleeves. I love colored trousers. I love shopping."
