Maxi Style

I'm not usually one for celebrity fashion, but there is one particular look that I keep coming across over and over again, and is perfect for hijabis! I'm talking about leather jackets worn over flowing maxi dresses, seen on the likes of Mischa Barton and Kate Moss. This is such as easy look to pull off, and just adds a modern edge to girly dresses. It works with pretty much any style of maxi; printed or plain, day or evening. Are you loving this look?


Nicole Richie; Kate Moss




Jessica Biel; Mischa Barton




Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen

I'm a new follower/reader of yours and I am so thankful for your page! I've been trying to figure out what to wear to a upcoming wedding and think I've found what I'm looking for. Maxi dress with a jacket will do perfectly. =)

Please keep the updates up!

Where I live all young girls wear leather jackets.
I love wearing leather jackets over maxi dresses and abayas.

I think it looks great, and it's so easy to wear - only two pieces - and it covers really well :)

I dnt think it always works with a leather jacket. In general maxi dresses with a jacket looks rly nice. However, if u are wearing a more elegant maxi dress, then I dont think u shld wear a leather jacket. It works only if you are wearing a casual one. I think its working rly well on Nicole, Mary Kate and possibly Micha. The edge to it goes well with these dresses, but the others have ruined it because it takes away the elegance. Feel free to disagree!

:) Cute look... I generally wear mine with very light sweaters. The weather here would definitely NOT permit a leather jacket right now (i.e., heat index of 105F or about 41C).
