How to choose the right Hijab for a maxi dress
It can be a bit tricky to choose the right Hijab that goes well with your maxi ensemble. Your Hijab can either be solid or printed but should complement the dress. Keep in mind the colour combination of the maxi dress and the Hijab. Also, it should be long enough to cover the front part of the dress. Follow a simple thumb rule to play safe – If you are wearing printed maxi dress, choose the colour of the Hijab from the colour palate of the print used and not the base colour of the maxi. This goes for other way round too; the print of the Hijab should embrace a colour same as of maxi dress.
How to choose fabric for Hijab?
The impression of the Hijab significantly depends on the fabric used. Silk, georgette and chiffon work best for Hijab. However, avoid jersey and knitted fabrics or fabric which is stiff, has rough texture or is of high GSM. Choose satin Hijab for night events as it emits a hint of luxury. Other fabrics to go for Hijabs are voile, polyester and viscose.
