Awesomely dressed hijabis


Call me a shallow but one thing I love to see is a beautifully dressed human being, or better still, beautifully dressed hijabi. I often scrutinise what people wear as opposed to how they look because we all control what we put on our backs. I mean we can't control our genes but we can control our jeans.. OK that was a lot funnier in my head.. 

Anyway, here are a few photos I found of some awesome hijab outfits:

Salaam sis, I don't think it's shallow, otherwise I'm veeeery shallow. I like that we have our own styles and show our personalities even if we wear hijab and modest clothing. I also like to show people that hijab isn't an uniform. :) I appreciate your posts, you're funny and you seem nice too :)

Salaam.

How much emphasis do u put on how people dress? Because being able to dress "nicely" is also a function of wealth, and that's not something we have complete control over.

The first one is just jaw droppingly wow!

imaanii: Aw thanks, you're so sweet :)

Salaam: I know I can be a shallow sometimes but I acknowledge that as a flaw in my personality and I do try to change it. I love fashion and appreciate good style but you're comment is totally right and I can't deny that.

Salam :)

Opinions on "Citizen Khan"?

Salaam: I love how you're in the US and have heard of it but I haven't! I don't really watch that much TV anymore so I haven't seen it but I just read a bit about it and I don't see what the fuss is all about. I think people need to calm down, it's just a comedy.

Hi!

I really like this post :-) I love interesting photos, and I am just too lazy to google them myself... and of course it might not be a very deep and meaningful hobby to look at interesting photos of other people's clothes, but I think everybody needs a bit of distraction from the stressful real life now and then, and I don't see much harm in this one.

I guess "being shallow" would be if you judged the people you meet in your real life according to what they wear, and of course that would be bad, but enjoying to look at nice pictures on the internet and to dream about styling yourself in different ways can't really be too bad in my oponion.

Anyway, all I had wanted to say was: Thanks, nice post :-)

Cheers
Hannah

Hello. I am a amateur artist and really interested in drawing a charackter wearing a hijab and proper clothing. So I stumbled upon your blog. I'm no muslim and all the experience I had with it are with one classmate of mine, who recently started wearing a hijab.

I learned a lot of do's and don'ts from you blog and really want to thank you. I did not only learn about the hijab, which I still think would be wonderfull to draw with all the draping, but about the islam too. My school has religious education, which teaches the basics of Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Jewish, but that is not much. You tought me so much more. Thank you

Cheers,
Inge
