Adapting the newest Valentino collection to the modest styles of hijabistas.
Ultra-feminine vintage is the main theme of Valentino’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Flowing dresses in lace, eyelets and soft floral prints are seen everywhere — including the shoes. Best of all, they are modestly cut and very much hijab-friendly. Let’s take a look at some tips on how you can bring out your inner-princess, Valentino style.
Lace and Loafers
Loafers are comfy and modest, and Valentino has ushered in the season to wear them. Much of his latest collection paired up lace and floral dresses with matching loafers, creating a look that is both princessy and modern.
Just as the models in the Valentino show wore their hair naturally, effortless hijab styles with flowing materials like chiffon are the best ones to wear with Valentino-inspired gowns. Complete the look by repeating the main elements of the dress on your hijab with, for example, a lace brooch.
Go Au Naturel
Less is more. With beautiful dresses such as these, who needs makeup?
The rules of thumb for creating a Valentino-inspired hijabi princess style are: less foot pain, fewer pins and less makeup remover. What’s a girl not to love?
