HIJAB STYLE DU JOUR :BOOTIES FOR EVERYBODY
HIJAB STYLE DU JOUR : POLKA DOT ABAYA
Today’s Hijab Style Du Jour is a gorgeous polka dot print abaya. This one features a sophisticated ruffle at the front and a belted waist. I’ve paired it with simple d’orsay pumps and a bright pink hijab… But this abaya would work with just about any color!
HIJAB STYLE STAPLE : SIMPLE ABAYAS
These abayas feature a simple shape that is great for layering under blazers and cardigans… You can also wear them as they are with some great accessories and a nice hijab. I love the different colors that are available!

Looking for something different from the typical black abaya? I found this beautifully printed, long-sleeve maxi dress that would make a great alternative to an abaya. I’d pair it with ankle-boots, a hijab (of course), and maybe even a black fur vest for warmth. Shop for this dress and other long-sleeve maxis at the link below.

Lately I’ve been getting requests to write about verses from The Qur’an about hijab. There aren’t any verses that say the word “hijab” in reference to a Muslim woman’s clothing, but, because “hijab” means covering, that word has come to be used to describe the way Muslim women dress. There are of course verses that talk about our clothing. Those verses are 24:31 and 33:59. I’ve posted both verses below…
“And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.” [24:31]
“O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” [33:59]
