Perfect Plaid

Plaids and checks are always a favourite come Autumn, and as always several designers including Donna Karan and Marc Jacobs featured them in their collections for Fall 2009. Here are a couple of more unusual takes on the look; I love the maxi skirt by Isaac Mizrahi:

And right now, the high street is full of checked shirts in long, loose styles, perfect for Muslimahs. H&M and Dorothy Perkins have several in stock, but I love this one from Debenhams which is on sale for £13! I'd pair it with jeans and a long cardigan for a casual day outfit:

Assalaamulaikum & Ramadan Mubarak!
I've always been frightened by runway fashion so I really enjoy looking at your take on incorporating current trends. My favorite posts are the ensembles you put together. I find there's a bit of something for every type in your outfits -- ways to dress them up, and for people like me who love dressing down, options for doing so as well. Thanks for starting this site. I was clueless about how to wear fashionable items without being flashy, and the outfits you post are modest and graceful Masha'Allah.

Jazaki'Allahu Khayran Sis.
