*Choose your hijab color based on one of the colors from the print of the dress. If it’s a solid color than use something that will contrast nicely with the season’s trends. For example an orange dress you could pair with a pastel yellow hijab, or a lighter shade of orange.
*If you wear the maxi dress as a skirt and use a button down top over it, make sure your hijab isn’t too puffy or layered. You can wear the Al-Amirah or any other style, but tucked in.
*If you wear a long t-shirt underneath the dress you can do the tucked in look as long as it doesn’t look to bulky. Otherwise choose a nice triangle hijab and pin it back so the ends aren’t dangling everywhere. Or wear a long wraparound scarf.
