Fashionistas who reside in England will understand when I say if the weather looks good then make the most of it before you know it, it might be raining or even hailing down 😦
In my last blog, I mentioned spring work wear, but now I am thinking about casual spring wear. On my recent trip to Dorothy Perkins, I came across this cobalt blue maxi dress, which is available in regular, petite and maternity fit. I love this snazzy shade of blue it’s so eye catching. This jersey maxi dress is light weight and great in warm weather. But there is a small problem, it’s figure hugging so not very modest. I am often left wondering what can I do to make it look modest?
Well, there is a solution, I tend to buy one size bigger, and wearing something long on top to cover my upper thighs. Another problem I find on the high street is that the dresses I tend to like often have cap sleeves. When I find so many negatives in a garment then like most people I won’t purchase the item. But is there a another option?
The answer is yes and with this dress I decided to buy a multi colour striped batwing top. I bought one size smaller in order to make sure the sleeves covered my arms. It is always best to try on different sizes to make sure you get the right size for you before you make your final purchase.
As you can see in the second maxi dress edit it looks modish and the colourful stripes have given me the chance to play with a different colour. I chose orange sandals and an orange clutch to finish the look. This is a beautiful bright shade of orange and of course a fashionable colour to be worn this season. If you feel a little daring you can always wear an orange hijab but I chose to keep a balance and opted to match my hijab with the dress instead.
I have changed the clutch bag to a handbag in the above outfit edit to show any style bag would look just as chic. This complete outfit (with exception to the handbag) is from Dorothy Perkins and the great news is that all of the items are on sale, so hurry and get hold of these great bargains whilst there still available.
