Review: Neva Style


I was recently sent 3 scarves to review from 'Neva Style', a Turkish hijab company that sells a wide range of polyester and silk scarves, mostly with lace detailing. 

Here are the three scarves I was sent:




All of them are a polyester and viscose mix, measuring 63 by 180cm. My favorite is this black and white one:



The quality of the scarves is very good. Good stitching, no loose threads, nice, soft fabric. An innate problem with the material though is that it creases very easily, which isn't good news for someone like me (i.e. lazy) who doesn't have the time or energy to iron a scarf. 


I really like the lace detailing and I think that it looks very chic on (check their website out for more photos). These are the sorts of scarves that could make a simple outfit look smart, Turkish style. One thing I'm not keen on is the shininess of the scarves, mainly because it means they slip off quite easily unless you wear an under-cap and use straight pins. 

These scarves go for around $25, depending on the style. Real silk versions sell for $50. I think these are reasonable prices. 


My mum took a liking to the red one so she nabbed it.. 


Overall I think that the scarves are nice, they are of a good quality and are reasonably priced. I recently wore the black and white one as a neck scarf with a plain hijab and a black blazer, I thought it looked good if I do say so myself. I would post a picture but I'm not into the idea of posting 'outfits of the day', not sure why. Anyway, I would highly recommend you take a look at their site, there is a massive selection of colours and some really nice Turkish outfit pictures. If you want to place an order, you can email them at info@neva-style.com

(Just to clarify, I do not and will never recommend a company that I would not purchase from myself. I actually don't respond to most of the review requests I get because if I think I'm not going to like the item or I think it's too overpriced, I'm not going to pretend to recommend something just because I was sent it.)

Anon: Of course I'll check it out, just give me a link :) Glad you like the blog! And thanks, happy new year to you :) Muslims do actually celebrate it but I personally don't see why a new year is such a deal. Maybe I'm a party pooper!

Sybil: Smart, structured clothes, typical of the Turkish style works really nicely with these scarves. The sort of outfits the models on the website are wearing, I love that look :D

Sorayya: I'm so stupid I went to edit a sentence and then accidentally reverted it to a draft then when I went back to republish it half of it was missing.. so I decided to just not repost as I'm too busy with exams to rewrite it. Was quite annoyed because it took me ages to get all the videos on it :( It's not the first time this has happened with a post either. Anyway, sorry about that!

I rarely buy a scarf that costs more than $15, but I recently bought 2 neva shawls. Love the texture and lace detail. I like your red one.
