The Goddess Maxi Dress

This lovely sapphire blue coloured floor length maxi dress has that gorgeous crochet waist detail. Hmmm I am in love!

Styling idea of how to hijab this Maxi:

  1. A thin, navy blue cropped cardigan will focus on the crochet waist detail.
  2. A navy blue hijab stopping at the top of the maxi dress will give all the attention to this simply stylish maxi dress.
  • I say navy blue so as to make the sapphire blue colour pop within a sea of blue! Cream colour cardi/hijab can also be used, for a brighter effect.
  1. Turn Maxi into eveningwear: by adding a sequined black crop cardigan/hijab with a bold clutch bag would rev this maxi dress up for an evening dinner!

The Effortless Daywear Maxi Dress

This maxi dress is great for that ‘I get out of bed with no effort greatness’ look! The blocks of colour and simple cut make this a lovely day wear maxi.

Styling idea of how to hijab this Maxi:

To keep with the effortless look I would personally keep with a light crop cardi so that it flows within the light cream block colour

Due to the block design of this maxi dress you can easily make this maxi dress more of a 70’s vibe by adding a headband feature accross your forehead and layer your hijab in a relaxed manner over your head (this can be previewed in the ‘Turn your day wear hijab into evening glam’ video)

The ‘rrrrr’ Evening Maxi Dress

Animal print always add a tigeress prowl to an outfit, and depending on how its cut and colours used it can be classy. This maxi dress designed by Warehouse designers has found the perfect balance with the cut and etheral colours used.

  1. The off shoulder cut of this maxi dress is a standout feature and what takes this Maxi dress to evening class, so you would not want to cover it up.  Instead wear a black undertop so the  focus remains on the dress.
  2. Black heels will be ace in completing the evening  maxi dress look
