Ways to style up your sleeveless dress fashionably and modestly

Hijab Styling Tips

For Muslim women who wear hijab, there are many ways to style up a sleeveless dress.

Sleeveless dress can be styled up with almost any outerwear, such as: jacket (denim, leather, cotton, fur, etc), blazer, coat (trench coat, ankle-graze, etc), cardigan (cropped cardigan, long cardigan, etc), jumper, cape, sweater, sweater dress, shirt, suit tops, long-sleeved shrug, etc.

You just have to know which outerwear will be best paired with a particular sleeveless dress. If the dress is tight at the top or has an elastic crinkle at the chest area, wear an outerwear that can cover the area, or even a short jumper.

If the dress is a bit tight at the bottom, wear a knee-length or an ankle-graze coat, a trench coat, or a drape-y long cardigan to cover.

If the dress is loose, simply pair it with any outerwear you love.

Here are some examples on how to style up the sleeveless dress:

With a buttoned-up shirt over the dress, and then accessorized it with a narrow belt:

Or, style it up with a short jumper or a cropped t-shirt:

And, you can also style up a sleeveless dress with a tunic or a blouse over it.. or even layer it with a long-sleeved tee underneath.

NOTE, about layer it up with a tight long-sleeved tee underneath; I'm not a fan of layering these kind of sleeveless dresses (picture below) over a tight long-sleeved tee underneath. Even, it's a fashion no-no for hijabi:
halter-topped, strapped, and tube dresses

It looks like you push yourself wearing something that "you can't wear". That looks weird, and.. you will look pathetic by wearing it.. ^_^


Try to avoid this.

BUT, there's STILL a way you can wear this kind of 'mix-and-match'..

To wear these 'halter tops-strapped-strapless/tube' kind of maxi dresses over a tight long-sleeved tee, is a bit tricky. You MUST complete the outfit by wearing a WIDE and LONG scarf with a particular hijab-wrapping that will ensure you cover the clingy neck and bosom area with it.

NOT like this:

It's not too pleasant to be seen.. right? You better throw up a jacket on this kind of outfit.. ^_^

Or, add a baggy cropped-tee's or a blouse over the outfit,
baggy cropped tee's, blouses, and vests
so the outfit will look like this:

In my opinion, a SHORT-SLEEVED, or a wide-shouldered, or a capped-sleeved dress will look a whole much better if you want to pair it with a long-sleeved tee underneath.

What do you think? How do you style up your sleeveless dress?
