Artizara is an American online retailer which provides its customers with what it describes as ‘Eastern Style’ clothing. It uses influence from the East in its designs and styles with a modest twist that makes their items suitable for the modern women.
It is very rare that you find a dress which is both covering and one which does not require excess layers under or on top because of short sleeves or sheerness. For this reason I was pleasantly surprised when I received my grey ‘Seema’ Maxi dress. The dress is very simple in style but on closer inspection each part of the dress had beautiful and intricate detailing in the way it has been designed whilst the good quality of the material used was evident in its flow.
The dress is fully lined making it non see through and great to wear in the oncoming summer months which will no doubt be full of engagements and weddings.
As someone who tends to wrap their Hijab quite a bit, I found the only problem was the scarf matching the dress was small in size. However that also provides an opportunity to introduce another colour into the outfit, and double wrap with another scarf. Here I have paired it with a plain black scarf, but a dark red would also look great and make more of a statement.
The flowy material, grey tone and stunning detail give the outfit a very ‘princess’ feel to it, but more importantly makes it something I could see myself wearing for a few hours and still remaining comfortable and elegant.
The dress is available in a two colours, blue and grey , with the price including the scarf for free. Upon conversion into British Pounds, it would equate to just under £90.00. As something that you can wear again and again, it seems a good investment.
Artizara ships worldwide and also provides a range of tunics, hijabs and many other items, be sure to check out their full range on their website here.
