Greetings to all my beautiful sisters embracing and adhering to this blessed month. This Mubarak month always brings on feelings of joy, regret, guilt and reform.. I know the one particular change that most sisters wish to implement in their lives is the dawning of the hijab or trying to dress more modestly while still embracing trends, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that! I decided to style 2 looks that are fashionably sassy and so in the now.
Look 1 is all about mixing textures and paying attention to detail. I paired a velvet pleated skirt with a ruffled sleeve shirt dress. To tie the look together I cinched a leather belt around my waist.
The skirt is 3/4 so I wore thick black stockings almost like tights which is better then actually wearing tights,(my opinion) The shirt can also be worn as a dress paired with black culottes or a cigarette pants and maybe a pair of ankle boots. I preferred tying my scarf to the side just to add a little more drama to the look.. a great idea for Eid!
My 2nd look is seen on the streets of Paris and London. A-listers are wearing it. Fashion magazines are encouraging us to wear it. Bloggers and street style fashionistas are making it part of their wardrobe collections. Think it’s safe to say that the fashion world has spoken! Silk robe coats/kimonos are here to stay. I love that they can be worn over a black abaya, or with jeans and sneakers or dressed more formally like I did in the picture. Remember with the Kimono, less is more, so play down your accessories, keep everything else minimal, so that the Kimono is the key element to your ensemble… here are 2 other ways that a kimono can be worn.
To style a hijab: ensure that ur base (volumiser and under cap) is comfortable and secure on ur head, this will allow for better placement and draping of your scarf! Remember, stay away from slippery chiffons and silks, cotton and pashmina scarves drape beautifully and rarely slip! Hope u enjoy the video hijabellas.
