Combining modesty with beauty, the Hijab represents the Muslim woman and Islamic Fashion perfectly. A symbol of virtue and proud reserve, the Hijab has adorned the head of billions of Muslim women over the years. Now with more and more Hijab designs available to all facet of female Muslim culture, the choice of which one to wear and when is becoming trickier. Luckily, the modern, contemporary Muslim woman has many causes and occasions to wear a Hijab, allowing them to collect and collate a number of the beautiful headdresses.
Here are a few suggestions as to how to get the most out of your Hijab collection and the preferable ways to expand and improve upon it.
The Working Girl
For the working Islamic woman, a smart Hijab is an absolute must. Plain, block colours are preferable due to their sensible nature. It is always advisable to avoid the colour black because it is synonymous with mourning. The last impression that you want to give when you are working is one of mourning. Your employer may not be particularly impressed should you present the impression of mourning whilst you are at work.
During the summer months, floral patterns are incredibly popular. Soft pastel flower patterns embody the spirit of summer perfectly. Flowing skirts or loose fitting trousers of thin material adorned with matching patterns work perfectly with a Hijab. Use a block colour on your top to break up the pattern. Being covered in the same pattern from head-to-toe can be overkill. The impact and beauty of the floral design will be lessened if used too much. When it comes to a floral pattern, often less is more.
One of the most effective ways to break up the patterns of the Hijab and the trousers/skirt combination is with a block colour blazer. The blazer is an extremely versatile garment and can come in any colour under the sun. Whether you are going for a job interview or a coffee with friends, there is the blazer to suit the occasion.
Attractive Muslim Dresses combine the same sensibilities as the Hijab. Flowing modesty and class oozes from this garment. The joint impression allows the two of them to complement each other perfectly and comprehensively. If you have a patterned Hijab, wear a plain Muslim Dress and vice versa to break up the pattern and make the pattern more significant to the eye.
