Hijabis always have this hard time choosing what to wear to occasions. At the end of the day, we just have to resort to having to design our own dresses. We can almost never wear anything ready-to-wear.
Like how can you wear to homecoming or any occasion dresses like the homecoming dresses we got from DressesofGirl posted above?
However, if we are resourceful and creative enough, we can actually wear RTWs to occasions without so much hassle. You just need to stock on few items.
Bolero/VestsYou can just wear bolero or vests for RTWs that are made short-sleeved or sleeveless. I have like few vests in different colors. Cardigans may help too, but they are not really for formal occasion. Vest or bolero would still do the trick.
Be sure, though, that when you wear tights, your dress is long enough not to show the shape of your body. Otherwise, the whole hijab is of no use at all!
If you don't feel like using vests or boleros which will cover the design of your dress, you may opt to use inners that are long-sleeved. They work super fine for formal occasions. Be sure to stock on different colors, too.
Those were just some tips to hijabify your formal wear. Hopefully, we have more in the future!
