Jhene Aiko: The Fashion Chameleon
Jhene Aiko Efuru Chilombo, a.k.a. Jhene Aiko, the soul/R&B singer-songwriter who is known for her romantic and atmospheric sound, along with her slow and hazy beats that create an ambient R&B vibe.
Not only is Aiko known for her “soft and sultry” voice, but also for her chameleon-like sense of style.
Aiko has many different personalities and she expresses them by the wide variety of clothing she wears. Some days she’ll be feeling “girly,” and you’ll spot her on the red carpet in an elegant red dress with 5-inch heels. Other days, you’ll see her a bit more covered up in a light cream colored pantsuit with a small clutch to match. It’s not uncommon to see Jhene rocking that risqué feel, wearing a hot pink lingerie nightgown with a sheer cover-up paired with all black thigh high boots.
It’s a fact that Aiko can rock just about anything she chooses to wear!
One word that Aiko goes by when choosing the clothes she decides to wear is comfort. She loves to be comfortable, which is why her favorite fabric is silky satin. In many of her live performances, she is usually wearing a bandeau top paired with a long flowing skirt, or a sheer see-through top with baggy pants and comfortable shoes. Not to mention, she also has her very own sandal line by Teva. These sandals were made for all-day comfort!
Although Aiko has a petite frame, she doesn’t shy away from the layered look that fashion experts swear are only for tall girls. However, she does admit that the tailor is her best friend. She breaks all the rules by showing off her Asian heritage by rocking colorful satin kimonos, along with an Indian inspired headpiece and a bold purple choker.
Expect Aiko to keep killing these amazing styles in whatever mood she’s in! Whether it’s bohemian, 70s inspired, or a hipster look that matches her music and personality flawlessly.
