YOUNG HIJABI

As a young hijabi, we see all the latest  trends and fashions and want to find new ways to incorporate them into our wardrobes.  You can always go ahead and add all the latest colors and designs into you abaya. Looking for a new abaya that incorporates mainstream trends can be impossible, so what I like to do is , go shopping and buy few of the latest in fashion Tops and wear them over my abaya.
