Long Sleeve Maxi Dresses

I was browsing my faaavorite site ASOS today for some day dresses (they have the best range ever :D check out this post I did a while back about them) and noticed a new and unlikely mini trend: long sleeve maxi dresses..
I do like this one but I'd buy a size up to make sure the fabric isn't too clingy, it only £30.00, I know!!:

Nicole Richie is pictured here wearing the same dress:

I love this, it's £32.00:

But this is my favorite by far, it's also £30.00 :D but unfortunately at the moment all the sizes above 8 (UK) are out or stock :( and I was so ready to order..

Check out ASOS's complete range of day dresses here!

Nothing hijab AT ALL about jersey - you can even see the curves on the rake-thin model!

Sarah: I know jersey is a bit more of a risky material but I have said in the post it would be best to buy one size bigger and you can pull it off if you pair with a grand dad style cardigan or waist coat and a cotton slip underneath but obviously if that's your opinon then thats fine

I was seriously interested in viewing the comments regarding this rather clingy, jersy dress with regards to Muslim garb. I was quickly reminded that proper English should be a concern of proper Muslim women - if you desire to have credibility when you give opinions.

Anonymous: Indeed. But I would say that the real key to a credible comment is.. making a point.

Also @Anonymous: As English is not the first language of many people on this planet, and indeed many Muslims, proper English cannot truly be regarded as a quality for proper Muslims to reach for. English is nothing but another language. As long as one is communicating and making a point, one should be fine. I think it's rather comendable that these sisters are concerned with the proper dress - proper English makes no comparison.
