Maxi Style: Keeping it Casual

I've been seeing maxi dresses everywhere on the streets of London recently. I love this particular one because the print is subtle and the colour isn't too loud. For a casual day look, I'd pair with a cropped denim jacket (or denim shirt when it gets hotter), a light khaki or cream hijab and a woven clutch bag. Add a cute handmade ring and these gorgeous H&M sandals (which are always sold out in my size!) to finish off:

Soul Cal border print maxi dress £39.99, Republic; Corsage denim jacket £28, New Look; sandals £19.99, H&M; Cool khaki hijab £4.99, Pearl Daisy; Stacey ring - pink £5.99, Love Letters; Kesek clutch £25, Aldo.

Salam dear.

I really love the colors combination! And top of it, it's loose. ;)

Oh no, Jana, your beautiful combo has made me go internet shopping to the extreme... New dress, new sandals (not these ones, but some from New Look), new jacket, new hijab, plus another one I'd been trying to resist for ages. AGH! Ma sha Allah you have a great eye for style!

This outfit is really cute Mashallah! I especially love the colours !

I was wondering whether you could help me or not ? The problem is that I've got my graduation ceremony next week wednesday and I have no idea as to what I should wear, I haven't even started shopping for it yet :( & I don't exactly have the best sense of fashion. So is there any way you could help me or suggest anything that I could buy in London?

Maxi dresses are so cute and flattering yet modest. I wish I could just pull 'em off! =/

maxi dresses are modestly cute, yet i can nevr find them ankel length. would you recommend wearing a black skirt persay, underneath to lengthen it? or would that be considered fashion crime?

Saba said...

Wow, that's beautiful! There aren't as many maxi dresses available this summer as there were last summer here in the U.S. I didn't even buy one last summer, wish I did!

Erina, Zuhra, mopr, Hafsa, glad you like it!

Aaliyah, lol thank you!

Anon, a formal maxi dress/skirt with a blazer/cardigan/jacket would be a great option. Try places like Monsoon, Mango and Wallis.

Roshni, anyone can pull off a maxi dress!

hijabi.sailoress, most dresses I find are far too long. I think another skirt underneath would be quite bulky and uncomfortable?

Saba, really? There are plenty here in the UK! I always stock up on hijab-friendly trends, you never know when you'll see them again!
