As many of the lockdown restrictions are being lifted in the UK, lots of us are looking forward to the prospect of some sense of normality as we're able to venture out into the big wide world again.
Of course, the opportunity to properly get out and about also means we can start getting excited about dressing up, picking out the perfect post-lockdown outfit for the occasion. Whether you have grand plans for a much-needed family get together, dinner with friends or just a normal trip to the supermarkets, we're here to give you plenty of inspiration for getting your post-lockdown fashion fix!
The one for your first family day out
Having been limited to family walks to the local park, the idea of going on a proper family day out to locations further afield is definitely cause for a celebration - and of course you'll need a brand new outfit for the occasion, too.
Whether you're heading out for a countryside walk rounded off with a family picnic in the sunshine or visiting extended family at their house for a socially distanced get together, a versatile ensemble could be the way to go to make this momentous moment even more special.
If you're looking for modest dresses to keep you cool during those warm summer days, then our beautiful Spring Blossom Closed Abaya could be the ideal option. Light coloured, loose-fitting fabric finished with delicate floral detailing on the sleeves, it's the ultimate summer outfit.
Alternatively, modest midi dresses with floaty bell sleeves and sequin detailing in summery colours like blush pink will ensure you look effortlessly cool and chic all day long.
The one for your first dinner out with friends
When it comes to getting together with friends for the first time since lockdown, you definitely deserve to get glammed up for the occasion - and you'll find plenty of amazing designs to choose from right here.
For a sophisticated and timeless look, you can't go wrong with adding a classic black abaya to your wardrobe. Whether you go for full on luxury with our Royal Black Open Abaya with gold embellishments or for a more understated all-black open abaya with embroidered detailing, you'll be guaranteed to make a style statement.
Of course, if you really want to make an event of your first dinner out with friends, then dressing up in an elegant gown like our Enchanted Grey Lace and Tulle is sure to turn heads as you glide through the room. Finished with a luxury silk hijab and clutch bag, you'll have all the ingredients you need for a stellar first dinner outfit.
The one for your first time hitting the shops
When considering your post-lockdown wardrobe, even the everyday trips out like heading to the shops can become a special event - after all, having been confined to our homes for so long, it's only right that we make the most of every chance we get to be out in the real world.
When it comes to choosing your shopping ensemble, practicality and comfort should be taken into consideration. This doesn't mean you can't still look chic though, far from it. Beautifully understated yet elegant, modest dresses with long sleeves like our Black Pleated Dress will deliver on all of the above criteria - giving you a versatile outfit that radiates style.
Accessorise your shopping outfit with a funky, oversized handbag and a comfy, jersey fabric hijab that can even be matched to the colour of your facemask and you'll have the perfect smart-casual combination for hitting the shops for the first time.
For many of us, the thought of getting back to normal life can come with a mixture of emotions, but focusing on the more exciting aspects like getting back in the fashion saddle is one way to embrace the positives.
With a new outfit for every occasion that comes your way, you can embrace meeting up with friends and family just as much as your weekly shop and we're here to help.
