Must-have Items for Summer 2009

After reading cover-to-cover a few fashion magazines, hopping from one fashion blog to another and browsing thru a number of shops both online and offline, I've come up with a list of must-have items for this season. And most importantly all of these items are hijab-friendly.

1/ Long sleeves with elasticized cuff

There have been a few names for this one; balloon sleeves, poet sleeves, ruffled hem or elasticized cuff. By looking at the pic below, you’ll understand what I mean. This cuff already made an appearance sometime last year but only this year I saw more of it in stores and on the streets. Even our baju kurung has copied this trend and with a good tailoring it will turn out stunning. I plan to do one myself for this year’s baju raya.

2/ Kaftan

Who would have thought this piece of clothing that our moms wear to bed is actually a big hit on the runway. It appears at Gucci, Oscar de la Renta, Michael Kors, Naeem Khan, etc.


3/ Maxi skirts

With a good cut it can be really comfortable.
