Muslim women wear the hijab not just as a commitment to modesty and piety, but also both an expression of their Islamic cultural identity and their personal style. We rounded up some Hijab OOTDs that challenge the notion of what it means to wear this culturally significant headpiece. All these looks set out to prove that you don't need to bare some skin to create a ripple of awareness and that modest fashion can be equally headturning!
Earthy tones channel a warm autumn vibe that looks fashionable all year round. The high-collared white top with flouncy sleeves adds a soft, victorian touch to the ensemble while sleek tassel earrings keep things modern and fresh.
Here, a vibrant marigold hijab is a pop of color to an otherwise monochromatic look. The bold floral prints on the full skirt make the whole ensemble anything but garden-variety. To anchor the look, keep your accessories in a neutral palette, such as this structured purse in camel and a platform stiletto in sophisticated black.
The key to incorporating volume into your ensemble is to keep your lines sleek and the colors subtle. The apricot hue of these wide-legged pants are decidedly feminine together when paired with an ivory bell-sleeved top. A chiffon dove gray headpiece ties everything together as a cool counterpoint to an otherwise warm color scheme.
Toughen up the classic jeans and shirt combo with a leather jacket and aviators. A greige hijab paired with hoop earrings keep the look soft and feminine.
Clean, architectural lines help emphasize the high contrast combination of this black and dijon yellow OOTD.
When it comes to wardrobe staples, the iconic structured jacket is something every woman should own. Keep this style staple fresh and relevant by selecting one in a delicate hue like blush pink. Paired with a mock turtleneck top and jeans, this outfit stands out with its smart, casual vibe.
A white skirt with electric pleats is taken on a bohemian spin when paired with a black satin varsity jacket enlivened with embroidered florals.
This season, “more is more." Take statement dressing to a different level when donning this floral hijab with its unabashed display of color and texture.
Hijabs also find themselves a spot in the Atheleisure aesthetic. Going for head to toe in ebony black is anything but basic with the pop of color given by a statement pair of sneaks.
Fur lends a dash of decadence to any outfit. Stay classy by keeping the rest of your ensemble in a neutral palette. Add a chic focal point with a jewel toned scarf tied smartly around your neck.
