Sizzling Suzai said...

hehe..it is quite hard to literally write coz im weak in explaining thing but this is my idea..

for the tee i'd pair it with a pastel green wide-legged pants since IT IS REALLY ON rite now. of coz i'd tuck in the tee and put a belt as well. the scarf should be a pattern material since the top is plain and dont forget some accessories and also the killer heels!

for the dress i'd wear a knitted sweater on it and a skinny belt. then a nice shoes under it. ok of coz a scarf and some accessories ^^

iegha ZULHAM said...

1. Combine the stripe Tee with the floral maxi skirt and plain pashmina with the same color of the Tee.
2. Love the Maxi dress, It would be suitable to combine with any color of cardigan/coat or even sweater.

v neck maxi shift dress:
simple plain dress that can be match with any outerwear or inner shirt..with this dress, i can pair it with a leopard printed cardi or any bright colour or printed cardi @ bolero so that it can turn this simple dress to a heart breaking outfit... with some accessories such as belt or long bead @ pearl necklace will added some midus touch to it...with black shawl, im ready to hit the road..

Neesa Shah said...

I'd dress up the embellished tee with a nice black satin skirt. a black satin scarf with a second pink lace scarf - (layering um), and some nice black kitten heels. Perfect for an evening out (:

Farahali99 said...

the embellished tee i would wear with jeans or hareem pants and the v neck dress could be used as a work or casual dress using a belt and a bright scarf, handbag and boots

Hijab Revival said...

I would LOVE this embellished striped tea as it would go with so many different outfits. I would wear it with a black pencil skirt, tuck it in to polish the look or i would wear it with my high-waisted loose pants and chunky heels to give it a Parisian look. I would team it with beige, black, red, navy and white. Finally I think this tea would be perfect with a structured cream blazer and a denim skirt. I want it sooo bad!!
thanx

Well with the dress I would wear a belt, maybe in nude colours, I will put on a white blazer too, and maybe a heels or ballerinas :D My hijab will be white with something black :D

Sadiyya said...

For the Striped Tee, I'd dress it down by pairing it with a dark wash denim skirt, a red hijab, a nude bag and thong sandals.

As for the Maxi dress, I'd go for a more dressed up look by wearing it with sequined embellished silver blazer/bolero, a matte silver hijab with black heels, a black clutch and silver accessories.

Lama said...

As the maxi dress is dark brown, I'd go for a tribally look.. a leopard print hijab, embellished sandals, straw bag and brown longsleeved body underneath.

Rina said...

I'd wear this dress with a pastel pink, batik patterned, knee length, front open, lycra abaya. I'd pair it with black instant hijab with silver glitter on the awning. Then accessorize with long glittery silver necklace with coconut-shell pendant.

Sally said...

The pink striped shirt with the sequins doesn't need any other embellishment! Just a pair of classic black pants or black skirt would be perfect. And a glitzy hijab, of course! ;)

Sally said...

I love the chocolate brown of the maxi dress. I would probably dress it down by wearing either a forest green or pink long-sleeved shirt underneath with a pair of boots (in the winter) or strappy sandals (in warmer weather).

Princess Golden said...

Since its summer in NY and the weather is hot, I would add lots of color to this dress a colorful tribal printed or floral printed hijab an over sized clutch in a neutral color and a light wieght blazer in a linen material, your shoes can either be a neutral sandal as well or a fierce pump... Oh and you cant forget a touch of simple accesories either a necklace, braclet or ring

Ana Belén said...

I'd wear the tee with a jeans and a nude peep toes!

Styling with a tee sometimes ain't it. You must have the right colour of jeans or skirt to wear with it. The hand detailed and black sequin do add this tee with something extra from other tee. And currently, every girls that I saw, do wear a striped wear. And I do want to have it a striped shirt in my closet. I want to dress them with tapered pants, black skinny jeans, black skirt or tan maxi skirt added with belt. Added with a pump shoes and grey satin scarf it will complete the looks.

niko fifa said...

I will styling this dress with a mustard blazer. I can use this dress as skirt as well. By having any coloured shirt like mustard, green or fuschia as the outer and added with a small belt, it will complete them. Or else, the coloured shirt can be as inner to this dress and wear them with belt as well. If Hand Embellished Stripped Tee and V-Neck Maxi Shift Dress are combined together they will create a fresh new looks.

Monica Martinez said...

I truly enjoy the two items here. The dress because it's a staple of any closet, and the blouse for it's simplicity and ease of accessorizing. First the blouse would be lovely with a long grey tulip skirt, a black and white wide stripe hijab, and a large flower pin close the shoulder, and a pearl necklace. The black is a basic dress so it pretty much goes with anything. I would pair this with a standard white button up blouse, silver glass bead necklace that has ribbon running through it, a beautiful silver tone hijab held together with a crystal brooch. on both i would use some cute red flats.

Ymemedi said...

I would dress up the striped tee by wearing it tucked into my highwaisted black long skirt and my black heels :)

ymemedi said...

As for the black maxi dress ohhh the styles are endless dress it up for the evening with my sequenced blazer and heels, for work i would wear it with my butterfly cardigan over the top and flats so versatile

Haneenah Al-Afiah Muhd Al-Fara said...

The Hand Embellished Striped Tee : I`d wear with a sleeveless and lengthy draped black vest (sleeveless to show off the sequins/ lengthy to cover my bum, lol), White wide-legged trousers with the striped tee tucked in, a plain navy wrap-around hijab and black wedges. The use of white + red + navy + black is to have a slight nautical feel. :)

Nilufar said...

I would style the v neck shift dress with a simple long sleeve cropped jersey top over it for a casual style. I would then wear a leopard print hijab and my hollister flipflops...for an uber cool daytime look...that could also be taken to the beach...

thanks for the answer :D

Rabia Ashraf said...

I would wear the tee/top with some Harem pants or some loose boyfriend jeans. I would either wear wedges or a pair of flats with them. If it was a bit chilly I would be a cardigan with it. And I would wear a plain Pashmina scarf/shawl. With a beautiful matching brooch! ;)

Rabia Ashraf said...

I love the black v neck maxi dress. Because I love plain colors and matching them with my Pashmina scarves. I would wear a white shirt underneath, to cover up. I would have big bulky bracelets to match with it. I would probably wear Heels or if not flats with it. :)

Hijabi and the City said...

The Hand Embellished Striped Tee: I am a nautical freak, so I would definitely team this top with a white maxi skirt and navy blazer. I would pop on my red ballet flats, and to glam it up I would add pearl accessories

Alia Shaw said...

For the red t-shirt, I would dress it down with a denim skirt and a skinny black belt, just the thing to wear out shopping with the girls. To dress it up, I would pair it some smart black slacks and heels for a more formal look, or out on a date with the husband, I would wear a black maxi skirt and sequin sandals.

The black maxi dress is just the thing to wear to the office with a blazer and a patterned Turkish square scarf. Or it could be made to look more casual with a jean jacket or oversized denim shirt with a wide leather belt, then finish with some chunky jewelry for a Boho chic style.

jtz said...

i would dress it up with a large brooch on one side and a maybe a glitzy scraf, some heels and some lippy, dress it down with abaya underneath, give it the slouchy look with a low belt and maybe chunky jewellry

Sadaf said...

Salaams,

1. I have liked LoveHFW on Facebook.

2. I have liked baraka on Facebook.

3. Embelished T: I love this shirt. The colour is really in fashion at the moment, and the sequins and embelishment on point. I would wear this over my abaya with pink flats and a big black bag!

Black Maxi: I would wear this dress with the Jewel lined Satin Jacket and the Fuchia pink seersuckers scarf that you are selling on your website. I'd slip on a pair of bright pink stilettos, a big pink bag and my outfit is complete!

Marie Laverré said...

I like on facebook Baraka and HFW on facebook and I really love maxi dress ^^ . If I can win, I will be very happy. I really love HFW, inch'Allah next year I will take part of it <3

Omaima bokhari said...

i would wear that tee under a sleeveless ruffle cardigan, denim, black or cream. or with a long denim skirt. it would just look nice with denim or navy blue skirt. or black and a black leather belt on top. or wide leg jeans/trousers!

Za'irah Amin said...

I'd wear the tee tucked into a high-waisted black maxi skirt, with perhaps a skinny belt. I'd layer my hijab, as per usual, in cream and black maybe, but I would knot the front (which I usually keep long so as to cover my chest), to the side so as not to cover up the lovely embellishment.

Nelli said...

I'd like to try them both together.
