Dresses are one of the best camouflage pieces in any woman’s wardrobe (hijabi or not!)
By skimming over the body a dress creates a long, flowing visual. The dress cut will depend on your body type and it may take some time to find the right shape for you, but once you pinpoint the most flattering (and modest) cut for your body, you can stock up and make these elegant pieces your wardrobe staple!
To add more shape and style to your outfit consider adding a blazer or jacket over your dress. Again, depending on your shape the type of jacket that will be the most suited to your body will vary – but once you find one you love, rock it! If you’re not a fan of the fitted structure of a jacket try sweater blazer or cardigan
A few good basic dresses & jackets can be mixed and matched and make your wardrobe trendy, versatile & modest
And it’s 2015 already. I think last year was one of the rare ones I can personally look back on and feel happy about. Happiness is a state that makes me lazy and complacent but it’s rather amazing. And I could wish for nothing better than more of it this year. So the happiest 2015 to everyone who’s reading this!
My partner and I saw out the old year by going on our first dinner date in 4 years, and then falling asleep to the Hobbit. Which is probably the most exciting new years eve has ever been for either of us. I was a bit sparkly, maybe a lot sparkly but I wanted to wear my pretty new barrette from my mum in law, and I based the rest of the look around it. The dress is an old Modcloth one which I haven’t worn in a couple of years, and the collar is last summer’s by Johnny Loves Rosie. I was so exhausted by the time we came back, I didn’t even attempt any proper outfit photos! But I love how these turned out anyway, don’t you?
