Pink Print

Printed satin dresses are lovely to wear for evening occasions where a full length gown may be too dressy. This outfit also reminds of the one that designer Amal Al Ra'aes wears herself. Not sure how long I'd last in those amazing heels though!

Printed silky dress £37.50, House of Fraser; black sequined hijab £5, Amirah Fashions; black long sleeve top £10, Topshop; gold bangle £8, Debenhams; satin clutch £15, Dorothy Perkins; black wide leg trousers £25, Dorothy Perkins; Laspace sandals £55, Faith.

Sequined amira is cute, I've never seen one before. Love the dress too of course!

maisastic, I saw this dress in store - it's about knee length, maybe a little less if you're tall!

Anon, I too am petite, but have no problem wearing maxi skirts! The key (with trousers also) is that they need to be long enough to cover your heel - obvisouly not dragging on the ground, but a practical length! Skirts that just scrape the ankle will make you look shorter. I like bootcut trousers as they seem to be the most flattering on petites - another tip is to keep the colour of your shoe continuous with the trouser - this gives the illusion of longer legs, as do pointed shoes!

Hoep that helps!

Celeritas, it's a shayla :)
