Fortunately, the Nigerian entertainment industry is filled with dudes who have these gifts; one of them is surely Oyekunle Oluremi.A few months back, he became a 'hero', winning the Gulder Ultimate Search season seven. Before the reality TV show, the 24-year old student of the University of Ibadan had starred in several movies and soap operas. The 6ft 2 inches dude, who just signed on to one of the biggest modeling agencies in Nigeria, ISIS Models, is fast becoming a fashion'forward rocker. He is to debut at the DC fashion week and the New York fashion this month. Oyekunle who is currently focusing on his modeling and acting career is ready to take the world by storm.He hints, 'I am also proceeding to the NYFA (New York Film Academy) to study film making, as a career.'Kay, as he is popularly called, knows how to add that wow effect to his looks. Either in casual, corporate or formal, he always has an effortless style and 'swag' that makes everything looks good. His recent effortless red carpet looks caught our Young n Sassy's attention. Rock his style' Casual, but classyLuxury sportswear blends easily with subtly updated tailored outfits. Just like Kay, rock African inspired clothing with a touch of class, which is a great way to describe today's prevailing style. The popular style trends focuses on comfort, utility and everyday wear in classy package. High fashion taste Oyekunle is all about refined attire' clothing that is easy, less constructed and ideally paired with lightweight trousers or even with jeans. The season's essentials call for chic linen, buttery soft cottons, silks and ultra-soft and light cashmeres. It's great to be a gentleman of high fashion taste. Keep it simple No doubt, you want a wardrobe that looks great on you, but don't overdo it. Don't wear more than three pieces of jewelry or more than three colours. Don't dress like a rock star unless you're in a band. If you want to be flashy, a simpler, but stylish look would be sporting a black striped dress shirt with a white blazer, a dark pair of jeans, a dressy belt and your sharpest dress shoes. You could also add a simple accessory. Don't be afraid to wear accessoriesAccessories can say a lot about a guy and help attract attention to him. If you're under 30, go for a cool fedora hat, bracelets and pendants. If you're going for a more mature look, try scarves, pocket squares and watches. Kunle says, ' my favourite accessory is my wristwatch, it keeps me on track. When it comes to accessory designer, my favourite is Gian Franco Ferre (Gfferre); I just love the style of their wristwatches. One of my wristwatches is my most expensive fashion piece'Work on your fashion senseYour fashion sense is like muscle. It needs to be constantly worked out. Always update yourself; look at photos of great looking outfits to get inspired.

You have to always look smart in everything you wear. Also, never underestimate the power of details.Invest in shoesA good pair of shoes can last you as long as you know how to take good care of them. One factual thing women always notice in men, is their shoes ' how clean and sharp they look. Just like this hero, show you are a man of taste by getting a great pair of shoes and keeping them in pristine condition. Don't be a sucker for brand namesOn designers, Kunle says, ' I am not particular about designers, but I like Dolce & Gabbana because of what they do with their pants.' Before you go for an item, ask yourself, if you are buying it because of the brand name or for the quality and style. Experiment with styleThe only way you'll really learn is by trying new things. I make efforts to try something completely out of my comfort zone. Kunle says, ' I can't be caught wearing nothing.'

It's a great way to stand out from the crowd and show everyone your fashion sense.Don't be a fashion slave When you buy something new, make sure it's something you really need. Don't fall victim to those commercials that dictate to you what you should get. Instead, think of the image you want to project and buy clothes that show your personality.Get a great haircutYou can wear generic clothes with a great haircut and look better than people in stylish clothes with messy hairdo. Go to a hair stylist and figure out what would look good on you. Then, give it a try and don't forget to change your haircut so often.Let your scent speaksKunle loves Paco Rabane, especially Black XS. Black is it 'Black is a universal colour. I love black colour because it matches my complexion,' says the ultimate man. Be a Zara Man 'My favourite shopping spot is Zara Man because their pants are made for me. I believe my measurement is used to make their size 44 pants (trousers). I love to shop in Abu Dhabi Malls,' he discloses. A fashion noHis fashion faux pas is 'seeing a fat man in skinny jeans.'
