This black maxi dress from Miss Selfridge is a sweet alternative to an abaya. A coral pink cardigan is an easy way to incorporate a key colour this season, and whilst it's still cold, try a short sleeved version layered over a long sleeved top. This hijab from Shukr picks up the embroidery on the dress, and add simple cream wedges and handbag to keep the look up-to-date:
Black embroidered maxi dress £45, Miss Selfridge; coral cuff cardigan £20; black long sleeve top £7, both Dorothy Perkins; flower embroidery wrap £9.95, Shukr; rivet detail front buckle bag £35, Topshop; Bahama Beach wedge £44.03, Clarks.
Hint: If you're looking for a long sleeved cardigan, try the Coral Tie Front Cardigan from Wallis. You can wear it open, tied, or try wrapping and securing with a pretty brooch.
