SUMMER HIJAB INSPIRATION

SUMMER HIJAB INSPIRATION

ASALAAM-WA-ALAIKUM ,  HI LADIES 

The beginning of spring always brings a sense of dread to any hijabi fashion lover. Out go the hijab friendly coats and cardigans and in comes the short skirts and sleeveless tops . But this year we are in luck with 2 very versatile items, the crop top and the kimono !

LETS TALK CROP TOPS : 

Recently, I was lucky enough to do an interview with CII ( thank you safeera ) and I spoke about how I have been loving the idea of crop tops over a traditional straight cut or flare abaya. This is a super simple look to achieve and you shouldn’t have a problem getting your hands on the cutest crop tops. Alhamdulillah I have been getting so many compliments from my friends and family ( it’s not like they’re biased ) so I thought I’d share this with you .

STYLING :

  1. A straight cut abaya or a abaya which is flare at the bottom.
  2. Crop tops from the local retailers
  3. accessories ( thick belts , neck chains )

LETS TALK KIMONOS : 

kimonos are basically these throws which you can use to wear over normal cloths and in my case over an abaya . This spring / summer , kimonos are so in and what I love about it , is you can style them beautifully over an abaya , there are so many different patterns and colors to choose from at our local stores.I have also found 2 beautiful talented young ladies who are fashion designers and also have online stores to purchase modest clothing including the kimonos . What’s great is these are South African designers which makes it very easy for us to purchase .

HERE ARE SOME OF THEIR BEAUTIFUL KIMONOS :
