In a city as diverse as Toronto, people don’t normally think twice when they see a woman wearing a Hijab. However, the one thing that does arise alot of interest is the summer heat. For someone who loves the summer heat as much as I do, the sweltering temperatures are no big deal. Generally, the hotter it is, the happier I am.
Having said that, I do like to dress according to the weather. Nobody wants to be layering when it’s 30 degrees outside, right? By far, my favourite summer fashion is maxi dresses. I love how feminine and flowy they look! For this video, I styled two dresses – details on the different looks are below and the full outfits can be seen on the video.
Look # 1 – The Turbanator
On super hot days, I like to wear my maxi dresses with a Turban. It can sometimes be a challenge because most maxi dresses are either strapless or have low necks – meaning that I’d be exposing way too much neck than I’m comfortable with. A great way to combat this problem is to use a scarf around your neck. For this look, I paired my dress and turban with another scarf around my neck – this is a great way to give you as much (or as little) coverage as you want.
Look # 2 – Bursts of Colour
This look is pretty standard. I wore a bold dress (helloooo candy cane!) and paired it with a neutral sweater. I wanted to add more depth to the look by adding another colour - I did that with my hijab. Who would’ve thought dark green and coral pink go together so well?
