Fashion Friday: A-Line

Friday, August 13, 2010

If you've been following my Fashion Fridays you might have noticed that I've been wearing more skirts and dresses these days. I usually prefer to wear jeans for everyday wear especially when I go to Uni and attend lectures but for some reason skirts are starting to grow on me.

Furthermore, they're much more comfortable than a pair of jeans after I break my fast at the local mosque, if you know what I mean. Skirts are easy to wear and I think my main tip when it comes to skirts is make sure you are aware of what suits your body type.




A long A-line skirt like the one I'm wearing here is a girl's safest option because they are designed to flatter any figure. It makes the vertically-conscious girl appear taller and it also has a slimming effect for those who want to look a little more slender. The secret is in the fact that A-line skirts are fitted above and around the hips and they gently flare to the bottom of the skirt.

Maysaa has some awesome long and hijabi-friendly A-line skirts. Be sure to check them out over here.

Very cute outfit and modest still masha'Allah. I like skirts more these days too for comfort purposes...they are so much more cooler than jeans for the summertime.

Salam, Shahirah! Thanks for your reply! I let a post in english about Amina Wadud, do you know her? A very inteligent woman that is a Imam in the USA.
What do you think about it?
