Drop-waist Dresses

I adore drop-waist dresses! These three are from Dorothy Perkins, and I recently bought the 3rd one. Since the waist is dropped they tend to be loose around the hips, so perfect to wear over jeans/trousers. All of these are actually on sale in store for around £20:



Alternatively, try a little 1920s glamour - it's just right for a ladies-only party! Accessorise with peep-toe shoes and a long string of pearls, and finish off with a delicate netted veil. So chic!


Pearl necklace £10, Oli
Patent peep-toe shoes £20, New Look

You can still do this look with hijab. Just add a black long sleeve top, black trousers and matching shayla.

hi, salaam!
i just wanted to ask ur opinion.. what would u wear with this dress to make it more modest? I have absolutely no sense of style so i would appreciate some suggestions.

thanks!!

Humaira, you're welcome.

Queen, thanks :D

Pink, that's great!

Marium, more modest in terms of hijab, or in terms of a non-hijab environment? If you want to wear it with hijab, I already suggested a long sleeve black top, and black trouers. Or for non-hijab, just wear a pair of black 3/4 length leggings underneath!

There is an online store that sells Tekbir clothes... www.tekbirgarments.co.uk. Seems quite affordable for what they offer but nonetheless can be pricy. I guess to get something good you have to pay 'good':)

Anyway, happy shopping...

Salaam

Marium, you're welcome!

Anon, thanks! I've already got them in my link list under 'eBay Finds'. Yes they're a bit pricy, but the quality is great.
