There was a time once when if you wore a hijab and you needed a party dress, it was very difficult to find a long sleeves party hijab dress. If you brought one from the stores you would have the trouble of finding a matching full sleeve body top to wear underneath or a matching cardigan to wear on top, which would spoil the whole look of the outfit.
But things have changed now, a lot of designers and high street shop have caught on and are trying to meet the needs of a hijab woman. Still, a long way to go but slowly there is progress.
Shop around, try different cuts and designs. Buy a design that suits your body shape. If you can’t find anything in the high street shops, then look online. There are loads of Muslim retailers selling modest clothing. If you start looking early, you should have plenty of time to order, try the item out, and return it back f you are not satisfied with it.
There is also the option of getting something designed and tailored made especially for you, this used to be a very expensive choice but now has become quite affordable. You first need to find a good designer, go by recommendations, this way you will have peace of mind. Then work with your designer to create your perfect long sleeve party dress. Share your concerns with your designer, let her know what you are looking for.
