Hello Stylers <3
Recently I was up for a shopping spree but a budget friendly one (I deserve some brownie points for being super careful) on a HongKong based website called Jollychic – famous for the stunning red logo, seasonal offers & countless commercials on facebook. As I’m a planning an overseas trip soon, I thought of trying out some new affordable online stores to get my bags packing.
After constant back and forth of adding items to my wishlist from their fabulous clothing lines & huge accessories collection, I happily settled on some travelling essentials & wardrobe staples. Though, I’m quite sceptical about online shopping from international stores mainly because of the delivery time, Jollychic did surprise me in this very department (definitely in a good way) by their amazing association with local & foreign shipping & logistics companies.
The final order was placed on 18th Sept at Jollychic and the items were delivered at my doorstep via Aramex on 30th Sept.
So here is a quick fashion haul of what I picked up and if you are interested in giving Jollychic a try, use my special coupon code ” rthijabstyles “ for a 10% off on your order. Plus, you can avail, free express shipping on purchases worth 99$ and up.
Plus Size Black Patchwork Lace Top

6 Pcs Classic Sterling Geometric Pattern Handbag Set
I’ve been wanting to invest in a good travelling combo and this one was a love at first sight sort of thing. Replicating the oh so famous Gucci pattern, I thought this particular combo was rather classy & super convenient for vacations with so many choices from a wallet to an oval bag, clutch and much more.
Grey Tassel Drop Women’s Handbag
When I added this particular dainty purse to my Jollychic cart, I’ll admit it was an impulse buy, mainly because of my huge fetish with tiny tassel bags & clutches. But this was beautiful little gem does compliment my recent ‘monochromic’ personality & oomphs up those boring rags I wear on my massive shopping fever days.

Nowadays Maxi dresses are totally in fashion and the easiest way to achieve a modest look. Whether a single colour or patterned maxi dress, they are an absolute necessity in every woman’s closet throughout all seasons. They can be worn as a glamorous party wear to a casual college outfit. The only trick you need to focus is on the details of the rest of your outfit and pattern of your maxi dress.
Maxi dresses come in different material like velvet, jersey or even lace. In this article, I discuss pattern maxi dresses and how to style them.
Tip 1: Choice of material
As summer approaches, soft jersey fabric is the best among the lot, to wear as that will skim your body, move with you, and be super comfortable – it’s a winner in that hot burning climate. Also, select flowy dresses with drape beautifully over your body.
#Tip 2: Layer with Solids
Always pair a pattern maxi dress with a solid cardigan, jacket or blazer to get different looks. A sky blue jeans jacket gives a perfect casual chic look (people may tend up thinking you took hours coordinating your outfits).
Tip 3: Slightly formal
You could always work up a solid colour maxi dress with a black blazer and belt for a professional look. However, refrain from printed pattern at your office girls.
Tip 4: Balance it out
When dealing with patterns I always try to wear a plain hijab to give more attention to patterns. Try matching it either with the colour of your cardigan or the pattern of your maxi dress.
Tip 5: For petite woman
Select a maxi dress with small, consistent pattern or strips – just keep in mind the size of the print should be no larger than your fist polka dots are perfect. On the other hand, say a big no to anything that divides your body into sections and even to large prints.
Tip 6: Accessorise your look
Try adding chunky bracelets and rings to your outfit and ditch those huge statement necklace as it causes distractions.
Tip 7: Shoes are Important.
Earlier maxi dress was considered casual wear but today it can be easily transformed into an elegant workplace or party wear just adding heels and clutch glamming up the outfit. Nude or neutral tone are perfect for maxi dress as they go along with the maximum of colours.
All maxi dresses were bought from a local store in Ajman, UAE.
Maxi dresses have always been my favourite go-to item when I’m lazy. So I’ll be posting a lot about how to style different maxi dress. So stay tuned!!
You no longer have go and shop for a vest instead use maxi hijab (Maxi scarfs which large in width too). This is a temporary solution as you can use them as a hijab and vest any day, especially in summers . You can use different prints and sizes to pump up your look. In addition, if you are wearing skinny jeans you could use this to cover yourself and make your outfit modest yet fashionable. Get the look in three easy steps.
One of the easiest ways of spicing up a boring outfit is to add up a pattern hijab with it. Nowadays, animal print is quite popular in the hijabi community, however, one must refrain from combining more than two different patterns together.
#Tips 1 Restrict yourself from adding accessories and clothing items of the same pattern. For instance, a leopard print hijab, belt, shoes and purse are considered to be TOO MUCH!! Break it up — no need to go head to toe in the same print.
#Tips 2 Neutral colours match any animal pattern. Black, white, nude colours (including browns and beige) are always a safe bet as they get along with animals perfectly.
#Tip 3 Nonetheless one can always pump up their outfit with a ‘pop of colour’. Cheetah print matches beautifully with Mint, burgundy as well as red.
#Tip 4 Accessorising with Gold rather than silver whether a gold statement necklace or sandals.
#Tip 5 Animal prints should be avoided on professional occasions: offices, business meetings…unless the pattern is small and in softer colours , and not easily seen as to not draw attention.
During the National Day celebrations in UAE, I wore this black and white striped dress and added a pop of color to my outfit by accessorising it with a red bag and bow. Living in Dubai, has allowed me to come up with different tricks to save myself from such hot climate. Instead of wearing a full sleeve black linear inside my dress, I wore a long sleeve shrug.
