Wedding Outfit Ideas

Anna left me request asking for outfit ideas for her brother's wedding. If you have a special occasion that calls for a gown, here are 3 basic options:

1. Look for long gowns that come with matching boleros. Modern Muslimahs sells Tekbir clothing in the UK and they have just that:

2. Alternatively, you can find the gown and bolero separately. If you can't find a long-sleeved opaque one though, try wearing a solid coloured long sleeve top underneath the gown and then wear a lace or chiffon bolero over it:

I love the colours of these dresses:

Wine taffeta ruched ballgown £70, Debenhams; Portia maxi dress £160, Monsoon; long embellished dress £85, Littlewoods.

3. If you prefer, you can always wear an embellished abaya. The beautiful full-length jacket from Arabian Nites could also be worn over a long dress:

Pearl Pure abaya £69, Lebaas; Brocade jacket £85, Arabian Nites.

And of course, don't forget your heels and handbag, and check out all my posts here for ideas for a special occasion hijab. More wedding outfits to come soon!

Anon, thank you for visiting! Lucky you, it's a lot easier to dress modestly if you're slim! The key thing here is to find clothes that fit well - try the petite sections in shops. Also, go for more structured pieces rather than overly flowy ones, as that will stop you from being swamped, e.g. wide leg jeans with cotton shirtdresses, skirts with blazers, etc.
