1. The evening dress

Evening dresses (sirens, flared or straight) in loincloth can be put for special occasions like a wedding, a gala evening etc …

They are very trendy and will give you a lot of chic and elegance.

Do not hesitate to mix your loincloth with other materials such as lace, tulle or linen, in plain colors.

If you opt for a mixture of prints, repeat the colors. Prints on your loincloths must have at least one color in common.

The colors must not be perfectly identical but sufficiently close to be supposed to marry.


Avoid overly large accessories in gold or silver, and instead opt for accessories in the same loincloth (headdress or turban …)

Apply a sober makeup, in the same tones as your loincloth.

Avoid make-up too flashy, at the risk of appearing too vulgar and erase all the chic side of the outfit.

2. Short dresses with a length below the knee

If you opt for a short dress, it should ideally have a length below the knee and sewn into a loincloth with plain patterns.

Do not hesitate to access it with gold or silver jewelery and wear shoes with heels to give you more height and pace.
