Fall is in full swing, and the Nigerian brand CLAN has fashioned the perfect transition pieces for the season. Crafted in Lagos, sisters Teni, Aba, and Tiwa Sagoe developed the label with the end goal of empowering women by offering a range of feminine fits and bold, unique patterns that celebrate individuality.

The sisters thrive off of fashion femme energy, but simultaneously manage to blend in professionalism and elegance. From Zoom conference meetings to elevated virtual dinner parties, beyond the season, these designs can seamlessly transition from day to night. 

Moreover, minimalists and fashion risk-takers alike are guaranteed to find their niche among these newly released pieces. When it comes to a major season change, the key is versatility and that's exactly what this latest drop delivers. Shop the essentials you'll be wearing again and again, ahead. 

Pick a pattern. 

Go bold with the Leo Print Keyhole Midi Dress. It's sure to turn heads with its bold leopard pattern adorning the body from top to bottom.

The dress cuts in around the bust making it the perfect shape to accentuate those natural curves. Finally, seen on the top of the dress is a small gold clasp, which adds a striking luxe detail.

Go long. 

Perfect for fall is also the Jacquard Deep Cut Tunic. The deep V-cut juxtaposes the black and white chevron pattern that snakes its way up and down the entire piece.

The chest is bare, opening up an opportunity to wear a statement or simple necklace. The long slit along the front center of the tunic makes it the ultimate piece to pair with free-flowing pants. As soon as you wear it, you'll exude unparalleled confidence from the tunic's strong structured silhouette.
