HIJAB STYLE SPOTLIGHT : SCARF NECKLACE

One of the common questions that Muslim women ask me is “What type of necklaces look good with hijab?” If you’re struggling to figure out how to accessorize your hijab style, or if you just want a unique look, you’ll be happy to know about Lubna Salah and House of Shakti.

Lubna is an amazing jewelry designer out of Beverly Hills, California. She created a gorgeous amethyst bead (tasbeeh) bracelet for me a few months ago, and she has just launched another item that would be great for Muslimahs: The Scarf Necklace.

The Scarf Necklace combines cotton fabric with strands of gemstones to create a circular scarf that takes the guesswork out of accessorizing your hijab. Check out the link below to see more Scarf Necklaces and to see pics of how to wear them… And when you’re done, come back here and leave a comment to let us know what you think!

HIJAB STYLE FINDS : LONG-SLEEVE MAXI DRESS!

Salaam ladies! Today I want to share with you a really great hijab style find that I discovered tonight on ideeli. It’s a long-sleeved convertible maxi dress by Ravon.

This is actually a plus-size dress but I would recommend that women who are NOT plus-size pick it up. Why? Well, you can see from the pic that it’s a form-fitting dress–which is a hijab style no-no. But, if you are smaller than the size of the dress, it will fit you nice and loosely… That’s why I’m buying one. It’s only $59 and I’m sure that I’ll be wearing it A LOT.

This winter, I plan to pair it with sleek boots and a fur vest, my fave black blazer, a denim jacket… the options are endless! To me this is the perfect LBD, long black dress… This will definitely be $59 well spent. Click here to check it out (it’s in the Plus Size Chic section) and then leave a comment below to let me know what you think.

Salaam & Salaam!
Kima

HIJAB STYLE : ACCESSORY FILE

From golden bangles to chunky chains and cocktail rings, there’s nothing like a great piece of jewelry to finish off an outfit. When it comes to hijab style, earrings are typically out of the question, so I’ve always focused on bracelets and rings when shopping for accessories. For a long time, I didn’t really consider necklaces as hijab-friendly items because my hijabs always covered them up. But luckily, extra-long necklaces are trendy right now and it’s easy to find necklaces that are long and substantial enough to be worn with hijab.

Check out some of my jewelry picks from Shopbop.com (yes, I’m still mildly obsessed with that site!). And tell me, are you an accessory fiend or is your hijab your only must-have accessory?

Hijab Style By Request

by WE LOVE HIJAB · 11 comments

HIJAB STYLE BY REQUEST

HijabiLadi” left a comment the other day asking me to recommend a few ShopBop items that are under $100 and hijab-friendly. So, here’s a quick post for her.

The first piece that I chose is a striped shirtdress that currently costs $49.50. This top can be worn open over a t-shirt and jeans for a casual look. Or, you could wear it with slacks and loafer pumps to the office.

The second item that I chose is a tropical pink maxi dress. This particular dress has side slits and deep plunging lines at the top, so normally I’d say that this one is a hijab no-no. However, I think it would actually be quite stylish to have a pair of wide leg pants peeking out through the side slits; and a long-sleeved tee would cover up the plunging neckline very well. This dress is priced at $93.

The third item that I chose is a convertible skirt/dress. I think this piece is cool because it can function as a must-have maxi skirt on one day of the week. And then on another day, it can be worn as a top with pants and a blazer. This one is on sale right now for $82.60.

The last piece that I am suggesting is a tiered maxi dress which costs $68.60. I’ve seen many tiered maxi dresses that overdo the “tiered effect”, so I like that this one has only a few tiers. As you can see, this dress fits close to the body at the top. So rather than layering it over a long-sleeved tee, I’d recommend wearing it under a thin cardigan for better coverage.

I hope this post has been helpful to you ladies, and I’ll be making more cheap chic posts very soon, inshaAllah.

HIJAB STYLE EDITED : FANCY MAXI DRESSES

Maxi dresses in basic colors like black, navy, and white are great hijab style staples for summer — and every other season for that matter. But what do you do when you want to add a little bit of spice to your wardrobe?

Sarah from Toronto emailed me for help with this. She wants to find a few maxi dresses that are fancy, but not too over-the-top. So, I headed over to shopbop.com (I’m a little obsessed with this website at the moment!) to find some options for her. Check them out at the links below and tell me, which style is your favorite?

Hijab Style - How to wear hijab style

HIJAB STYLE INSPIRATION

The other day, I was browsing through the lookbooks at shopbop.com and was immediately drawn to the image above. I love everything about this outfit! The brightly colored dress, the neutral striped sandals – it’s all very chic… But of course, I could never wear it outside.

This often happens to me when I’m flipping through magazines or looking at fashion photos online. I’ll see beautiful pieces that are put together in a really great way. Sometimes the outfits are complete hijab style no-no’s (think: anything formfitting). But most of the time, all that’s required to make an outfit hijab-friendly is a little bit of layering.

To make this particular ensemble fit for a hijabi, I paired the dress with wide leg pants, a fitted long-sleeve tee, and shiny accessories. And of course, I’d top it all off with a pretty hijab style.

All items featured in this collage can be found at ShopBop.

Setrms Hijab Style

WE LOVE HIJAB LOVES : WORKWEAR BY SETRMS UK

Every woman has an I’ve-got-nothing-to-wear-to-work day now and then. But, I think that Muslim women have it the hardest. Why? Because we have to find clothes that are clean, professional and modest enough to wear to work – and then we’ve got to find a hijab to match. I’m sure that many of you working women know what it’s like to find something halfway modest in your closet – for example a sleeveless tunic – only to realize that the long-sleeved t-shirt that you normally layer it with is in the dirty clothes bin…

This brings me to one of the reasons why I love the new fashion franchise called Setrms UK. While most designers sell suits that feature jackets and skirts that are too short to be hijab-friendly, Setrms UK offers long jackets and long skirt-suits that make it easy for a Muslimah to get dressed without having to worry about layering, mixing, and matching.

Some of my favorite items of Setrms UK’s first collection are their long jackets. The one pictured above is called Tulin and I can imagine wearing it in several different ways. You could wear it to work by pairing it with wide-legged pants (as shown above). You could dress it down by pairing it with jeans and a t-shirt. Or you could wear it with a simple maxi dress.

Click here to see what else Setrms UK has got to offer. And be sure to sign up for their email newsletter (at the bottom of their website) because they’re giving away a free silk hijab to one lucky subscriber… When you’re all done, come back here and let us know:

Would you wear this type of clothing to work? What do you normally wear to work? What do you think of the Setrms UK line in general?
