Style Spotlight: Ruffled Skirts

The Spring 2009 RTW collections are bursting with hijab-friendly outfits and ideas. First up is Chanel; these looks caught my eye with the full length skirts. I love the delicate ruffled tiers and girly prints. They also incorporate boleros; which are a great cover up for arms when the sleeves are long enough:

If you're liking this look, Mango has a beautiful lilac skirt in right now. The key is to keep the rest of the outfit relatively simple. I've chosen to add a loose silver top and handbag. This open-front cardigan from Uniqlo gives a similar bolero effect to the Chanel looks above, but still offers coverage at the back. A delicate lilac hijab, simple mules and a flower ring finish off this feminine outfit - perfect for an outdoor party or wedding:


Amethyst skirt £190, Mango; off-white merino long cardigan £24.99, Uniqlo; silver asymmetric fan neck top £28; flower ring £9, both Dorothy Perkins; purple hijab £6.29, Muslim Base; silver coloured large clasp frame bag £16, Debenhams; satin kitten heel mule £25, Barratts.

Nice look. But the skirt is a bit too much?

I don't think that style will catch on in the high street.

I love it when a Muslim-approved style comes into mainstream fashion. That purple ruffle skirt is sooo cute. Id wear that for sure! You have great things on your site! Thanks for coming to mine.

The ruffles look nice but not sure I could pull it off!

Try matalan for long skirts, they pretty much have them in all year round and do really good smart and casual ones. They have some nice summer ones at present.
