Style Spotlight: Evening Wear

Fall 2009

For elegant, chic and wearable evening outfits, three runway collections in particular this season offered beautiful hijab-ready ideas.

Max Azaria featured long gowns layered over polo-neck tees. Though not a favourite look of mine, the draping of the purple dress conceals curves beautifully, whilst long leather gloves are an unusual way to accessorize a plain white dress:

I love Carlos Miele's designs and his use of statement boleros over evening gowns, which really bring the outfits up-to-date. The colour pallette is kept fairly simple, with interest added with fur and origami-like pleats and folds:

Valentino also showcased a similar combination of a fur jacket over a satin gown, as well as a couple of trouser suits. The longer length jackets make for beautiful modest outfits:
