Many people think that there is no style nor glamour in the writing industry, especially among fiction writers. Yes, we consider the writing industry because writers are simply the power-house and the brain behind every creative work you see on Tv and in books. So beyond the imagination you have crafted yourself about writers, I would have you know that writers are also stylish in their geeky way! I will be sharing with you some of the best dressed female writers and guess what? Their sense of style and mode of dressing would surprise you.
10. Itunu Taiwo
Nigerian born writer who has impacted the lives of many through her books especially; her book titled, Beautiful wings. She’s naturally simple and often slays in anything comfy. She’s a naturalist and you would most often see her in jeans and a simple blouse to go with just likeTomi. Although I have never seen Itunu in a dress, I’m certain she would slay also in dresses.

I bring to you your very own behind the scene goddess! She has a unique writing style which has earned her nominations in the AMVCA. She is a scriptwriter and a fiction writer as well. Famous for her outstanding book; George’s pieces of me. Tomi has a simple dress sense and I must say that she looks good in her jeans and shirts. However, you would almost be surprised when you see her in dresses. She looks even dazzling.
