Worried about how to wear your maxi dress in the winter? Worried it’s going to look too “summery” or that your legs are going to freeze? Don’t put them to the back of the closet yet, because there are plenty of ways to wear your long, bright, floral dresses. All you need is four basic pieces:
1) Cropped jacket (dark colored cardigans or a denim jacket will do perfect for the cool months).
Look for a cropped jacket that is dark with a rougher material (like suede or faux-leather). This will balance out the softness of your dress and give your outfit a winter look.
2) Long-sleeve thermal T’s (which you probably already have).
3) Thick leggings in different colors and cool patterns (especially if you’re wearing flats–or sandals).
4) Knee-high boots (ankle boots work, but aren’t as warm).
As we enter fall (first day of fall is September 23rd), I love to find pieces that can be worn during the summer or fall. I like to stretch my money, so I’m all about versatility and being able to pair a top with multiple different bottoms during different times of the year.

What is Tahirah’s Tailor?
A weekly updated blog dedicated to clothing and fashion tips for Muslim women.
Let’s us face it: we Muslim women, especially in non-Muslim countries, have a relatively hard time finding appropriate clothing that reflects our tastes. I often find myself settling, or giving in to what I deem the most appropriate shirt, skirt, or pair of shoes in a clothing store. This blog is where I’ll post awesome finds, especially for the workplace, gym, beach, and other not-so-tailored-to-us departments. So look out for the next post coming next week!
Feel free to share your own tips, thoughts, or questions.
